Riding In Style With The 2014 Toyota Prius Three!


When you first look at the 2014 Toyota Prius Three, it might look like a standard 4 door car. Think again!! This car is AMAZING! It has so many features, so much style & a ton of safety features! 


I absolutely love the sleek style of the car, it has a sporty front and I loved the vibrant red color!



The Toyota Prius Three is a Hybrid vehicle and can save you a ton of money on gas! I love this, and what's even better is that the combined city/hwy fuel economy is 50 MPG! That saves you $6,250 in fuel costs over a period of five years, compared to the average new vehicle. 

With that being said, let me give you a better look inside the vehicle!





There is plenty of leg room inside this car, for both the driver and the passengers! My seat was easy to adjust to my height of 5'7 and my husband was very comfortable sitting up front in the passenger side. He is 6'0 tall and needs a good amount of leg room and he had plenty. 
The seats were super comfortable, and I was able to adjust the back of the seat to accommodate my back, making this drive extremely driver friendly!

There is plenty of room in the trunk for a day of shopping or errands. 




There is a net to secure your things, as well as a sun shade that you can pull out. This is great for those grocery trips in the summer! You can keep your cold items out of the sun. 



Interested in seeing more of the features inside? I sure was when I first laid eyes on this car! 










The digital display screen lights up very clearly so that the driver can see everything necessary, without taking their eyes off the road! It's in such a unique and convenient spot for the driver and I love how much information is displayed.
The steering wheel was very smooth, and easy to steer. It glided easily on turns and it even had features to control the volume of the radio, and so much more!
The glove compartment had a very big space to store your insurance and registration etc. It was easy to open and close, and very accessible.
The overhead lights were very bright, and made night time driving simple when needing to look for something inside the car. 
The shifter was so unique, I just moved it to the position I needed it in, and it went right back to the center. In order to get it to go in forward or reverse, I had to go left with it first before going down for drive or up for reverse. This is a GREAT safety feature, because if a child or pet accidentally bumps it, it's not going to take go in gear! 

With all that being said, how did it drive? Like a charm! We had some rough weather here while I had the car, raining and windy, and this car stayed its course! I didn't slide at all, nor did I have to over compensate in one direction to stay straight in the wind. 
In my opinion this is a well built and very strong vehicle.
I think this vehicle, with all of its features, would make a great car for anyone's lifestyle!
