2017 Toyota Prius Four Touring

Pros: Outstanding fuel economy; front-seat head- and legroom; cargo space

Cons: Visibility to rear corners; rear-seat legroom

CG Says: After its redesign last year, the 2017 Toyota Prius gains a standard Toyota Safety Sense package. Safety Sense includes pre-collision system with pedestrian detection; automatic high-beam headlights; lane-departure alert with steering assist; and adaptive cruise control. Prius moved into its fourth generation with updated styling to its familiar shape, a redone interior, a lower and wider stance, and higher fuel-economy ratings. Cargo space in most models has been increased, but rear legroom is reduced by 2.5 inches. However, legroom and headroom are generous up front. The new Prius is simply a fine car—a fine car capable of breaking 50 mpg.
