The Toyota Prius is a hybrid with all the luxuries of a midsize sedan. It fits five comfortably, and it rides smoothly. It also has all the gadgets and gizmos I love in a new car,

Now in its third-generation, the Toyota Prius still rides on top of the segment it created. To discover the 2010 Prius’ inner athlete, step on the gas, and put the Prius into a hard corner. The car is infinitely more fun to drive than the previous model.

My first impression with the 2010 Prius is overwhelmingly positive. Even though the Prius is iconic, Toyota needed to upgrade this car and make it the all-star hybrid that it should be. They succeeded.

Rather than traverse new terrain and build a Toyota Prius that has more performance savvy, sportier legs or aggressive looks, Toyota continued on a familiar path—economy.

The 2010 Prius definitively retains its crown as king of the hybrids. It’s a profoundly impressive car, perhaps the densest concentration of engineering virtuosity on the road.
