Default 2015 Toyota Prius

What do you think the 2015 Toyota Prius will look like. How much
mileage would you think it would have. And how fun will It be.

Thing I think of when it comes to this topic is the Prius looking
more like of a sedan. Because a lot of people complaining of how it
looks. That and fashion wise, the hatchback car can look only so
fashionable. Before it starts to look awkward or looks as if it came
from outer space.


As for the interior. Sometimes you would want it to be more
touchscreen oriented. Because touchscreens look a little more clean.
Rather then having buttons such as Air Conditioning buttons. Some
issues with the touchscreen could be that its not durable. Meaning if
a cup spills on the screen you're out of luck.
As for behind the wheel, some features would be that the buttons
on the wheel could be more easy to adjust. Examples could be that the
buttons on the wheel can move so you can press them from any angle
your wheel may be in like if you are taking a right you can press it
even then.

All in all. I think that the future prius could be a great car. As
always, I do think it would have a lot of mileage. But not something
unrealistically crazy such 100mpg. The Prius would probaly look very
fashionable. While keeping good looks in check.
So that is my opinion on what I think it'd look like. I want to
hear from you and what is your opinion on the new model. Do you care
for it or just want to forget it ever existed.

The look is bothersome but a lot of buyers like hatchbacks and there
aren't that many choices of hatchbacks anymore. If you want a more
conservative looking sedan then the Camry Hybrid isn't much more than
the Prius Hybrid.

Except the Camry is a piece of shit to sit in and drive. Honestly,
Toyota should be ashamed of themselves.

You want what the Camry used to be and should be? Get an Avalon.

The Camry Hybrid feels like a luxury car. Not much different than a
Lexus. The hybrid drive train is more than just a fuel saving gimmick
due to the way Toyota implemented the hybrid system. You get amazing
acceleration with the hybrid because both the gasoline and electric
motors are driving the wheels in synergy. The handling is also awesome,
definitely on the level of a German sedan. I don't know if Toyota put in
a better suspension system because of the weight of the extra components
(batteries and electric motors) but it feels like driving a German
sports sedan.

Can't comment on the Avalon, they are rather rare. I expect that all the
Avalons come with a V6 due to the higher weight. We looked at an Avalon
at the time we bought our first Camry but you just didn't get much extra
for the extra money except some extra rear seat room and a larger trunk.
Neither was important to us at the time though 18 years later we still
have that first Camry and it's running well. Probably spent about $300
per year, on average, on repairs, including wear items. One radiator, a
couple of sensors, a couple of idle air control valves, and a rather
expensive repair of a leaking oil seal.

Nothing wrong with the Prius of course, but it's basically a low end
vehicle that has the hybrid synergy drive added to it, much like Honda
has done with the Civic hybrid. The Prius is a good commute car but it's
not a vehicle for extended road trips like the Camry. It's rather
cramped if you're transporting two adults and two teenagers, though it's
fine for small children in the back seat. We may get a Prius soon
because we want our daughter to have a newer vehicle than the 1996 Camry
when she's away at school. CA 17 is not a road where you want to lack
ABS and VSC.

So you haven't looked at an Avalon in 18 years?

Avalon Hybrid (the Toyota version of the Lexus ES300h). Drive that and
compare it to a current Camry of any style, and you'll see how they've
cheapened the Camry beyond belief.

So you've never actually even sat in one, let alone driven one. Got it.

Driven one only as a rental in Florida. Ironic that in Florida Toyota is
dumping hybrids with fleet sales while in California they are so popular
that this would never happen.

I didn't want the Prius for a rental, it was all they had left. Very
cramped for four of us with luggage. But in the bizarre world of car
rental sizing, the Prius is a "mid-size."

Being smarmy does not help your position.
