Prius safety and technology

Naturally, the modern Prius is a safe car. In fact, it got a top safety rating at launch in 2010, dropping one star from its total in 2013. It's also been embroiled in the odd legal battle since then (remember unintended acceleration?), 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.

Prius economy and efficiency

It goes without saying that the Prius is an efficient car--in fact, it's right up there among the best on sale. It may no longer be the most fuel-efficient, but with the Prius Plug-In on sale and a new model on the horizon for 2015, it'll still remain competitive.
