The exterior of the car is modern, something to do with the aerodynamics to maximise the hybrid power unit. It curves down at the front and tapers up at the back.
It looks fine but it’s not the most attractive of cars. Still, that’s not why you’re looking at a Prius, so it factors less in your decision making.
Inside is just a bit odd. The digital dash is in the centre of the car, high up, just under the windscreen. So there’s nothing in front of the steering wheel, it’s dead space.
It’s not super functional compared with other cars that have everything you need to see directly in your eye-line. It does have a head-up display with your speed in the windscreen, but for all that hybrid information you have to keep looking left.
The seats are leather-appointed and they look and feel good, the steering wheel is nice under the hands, but the design overall feels dated.
