What Our Members Are Saying about the Price of the the Toyota Prius

Price of the Toyota Prius: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20104dr Hatch 98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Cheaper than the Mini
20104dr Hatch 98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
The prius is not very expensive compared to other hybrids, in fuel or maintenance costs.
20104dr Hatch 98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Price was a good value
20084dr Hatch 76-horsepower 1.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
I felt that the cost was reasonable given the technology. In addition, there was a total of $4000 in government tax rebates that lessened the cost of ownership a great deal.
20084dr Hatch 76-horsepower 1.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
$25k out the door price.
Price of the Toyota Prius: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20104dr Hatch 98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Even the low end Prius was a few thousand more than the mid-range Insight EX.
20104dr Hatch 98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Several thousand more than the Insight.
20104dr Hatch 98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Price is too high in this uncertain economic time. Plus I tend to keep cars 10 to 12 years. I do not want to be faced with the cost of replacing the batteries (well over $1,500) eight to ten years from now.
20104dr Sedan 98-horsepower 1.8L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Getting any hybrid new in 2010 for 21k was not a bad deal, but Toyota broke out the Prius into several different models, and for 21k you get a pat on the back and the little paper in the floorboard.
20084dr Hatch 76-horsepower 1.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
Far too expensive for what you get.
