TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2013 Toyota Prius c

2013 Toyota Prius c Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2012 The #1 benefit of the Prius c is obvious. It has the highest EPA ratings of any car, 53 miles-per-gallon in the city and 46 MPG highway. This noted, the EPA ratings for the larger, smoother, and more powerful regular Prius are almost as high in the city (51) and are actually a little better on the highway (48). The Prius c only goes significantly farther on a gallon of gas if you're willing and able to drive it with a very light right foot, especially when braking. Then you'll regularly observe over 60 in suburban driving. I observed as high as 82 for the trip from my house to my kids' school. see full Toyota Prius c review

2013 Toyota Prius c Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2013 4dr Hatch 73-horsepower 1.5L I4 Hybrid
Most of the time, I turn on the 'Eco mode'. Also, I switch the display to 'Eco Score' display. Following the guideline such that the power band is always within the 80% quantile of 'Eco' range, I can maintain roughly 49-51 mpg on the highway (speed between 55 to 70 mph, depending on the inclination). Overall, I can get 54-60 mpg due to the terrain in my commute that allow me using battery power completelyfor the last 1 mile of each trip. see full Toyota Prius c review
2012 4dr Hatch 73-horsepower 1.5L I4 Hybrid
In moderate to warm weather 50-80 degrees, this car will get 55-58 mpg in combined driving with careful operation. It drops 2-3 mpg in very cold weather or with heavy AC use. The MPG have never been as low as the window sticker. We have averaged 55 mpg over 7000 miles. see full Toyota Prius c review
