Naturally, the modern Prius is a safe car. In fact, it got a top safety rating at launch in 2010. Sure, it's been embroiled in the odd legal battle since then (remember unintended acceleration? We bet Toyota does...), but after a large recall and some further research, it turns out many of the problems were due to the nut behind the wheel. It's a high-tech vehicle too, so we'll show you how it works here, and we can also illustrate Prius progress over a decade of the popular hybrid.
