Harold likes the new Prius — Just ask him


(April 22, 2016) Never mind that Harold Gunn of the Automotive Reporter didn't particularly like the looks of the last-generation Toyota Prius, the new generation introduced as a 2016 model has caught his fancy. Harold likes the design and he likes the way it drives.

Toyota has refined the Prius with a radically different exterior design, created better driving dynamics, added front leg- and headroom, and increased the array of standard features. At the same time, Toyota did not lose site of its core appeal — outstanding fuel economy.

Harold said someone asked him how fast it would go. So he found out on an abandoned airstrip. His findings and a complete walk-around of the Prius can be found on his short, incisive video report.
