2012 Toyota Prius C
First to join the regular Prius was the 2012 Toyota Prius V, a hybrid wagon, and most recently we've got to know the 2013 Toyota Prius C, a Yaris-sized hybrid subcompact offering some impressive economy and emissions figures.
As with several of the most significant green cars on sale, we've decided to bring together all our content on the Prius C to offer you a one-stop-shop for information on the model.

The Prius C certainly lives up to the economy of its bigger brother. Rated by the EPA at 53 mpg city and 46 mpg highway, it matches the Prius's 50 mpg combined rating, making it one of the most economical, clean-running vehicles on sale.
And with 2013 model-year cars starting at only $19,875 (including the mandatory delivery fee), it's also something of a bargain next to many hybrids. The gas-electric drivetrain pairs a 1.5-liter gasoline engine with an electric motor, and visually it's sportier than the larger Prius models.
Since the 2012 Toyota Prius C is an ideal first hybrid, why not check out our guide on what to expect in your transition to a hybrid car.
