I can guarantee you will spend almost nothing on gas - and this little guy is a lot of fun to drive. If you've never driven a hybrid before and you're a little nerdy, you're going to love it. All the displays and stats make driving into kind of a video game as you see when the car is switching into electric vehicle mode and you can try for the best score on starting, cruising, and stopping.
The 'C' body style is a little sportier than the usual Prius, but the hatchback still has a pretty good amount of space for luggage. The rear seats also fold down just in case you need a little more room.
There's a holder for your phone with an input for charging an iPhone 5 that links straight to the sound system. I also have a universal charging cable that accommodates older iPhone and Android, and an auxiliary jack for playing music.
Stock touchscreen map/GPS makes sure you don't get lost in case you don't feel like using your phone to navigate.
300+ mile range on a full 9.5-gallon tank, and way more than that if you're driving in the city.
45 mpg highway
50-60 mpg city (!!)
I'm more than happy to deliver to the airport or wherever you might find yourself in the Twin Cities.
I love this little car and I bet you will too. :-)
2012 Toyota PriusHeath's Toyota15519
Heath was wonderful to rent from. The communication was great and the whole process was very convenient. He made sure that all my questions about the car were answered and that I had everything I needed during the time I was borrowing it (aux cords, car phone charger, phone mount for navigation, paperwork ect). It was a seamless pickup/drop off process. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
This is the second time I have rented Heath's Prius. This car is perfect for getting around town when I'm in the area visiting relatives, and Heath is a good communicator and a very pleasant person to do business with.
Heath was a great host and his car is awesome. He was very communicative and very flexible. He came to the airport to pick me up which was so fantastic. He spent 15 minutes with me going over the features of his car and showing me how to set-up Bluetooth, GPS, and all the fancy features of his hybrid. He was very helpful. The car ran smooth and gets amazing gas mileage. I ended up not needing the car as late as I originally thought and Heath was super accommodating and met me early. Heath is an example of the perfect Turo host - flexible, informative, communicative and friendly! I would highly recommend Heath and his hybrid.
Every aspect of my first-time experience with Heath and Turo was perfect. Great communication, perfect little car! Will recommend to everyone I know and will return to Turo the next time I need a rental.
Heath was great to work with! He picked me up at the airport and dropped me off at the end of the trip, and I enjoyed chatting with him about his experiences and tips for Minneapolis. The Prius was decked out with Starbursts and phone chargers, drove smoothly, and was very fuel efficient. I only spent $10 on gas after driving all weekend. I'd love to be back in MN and drive it again sometime!
