2023 Toyota Prius First Drive Review

This is the 2023 Toyota Prius. No, really. I still can’t quite believe it either, and I spent a whole day driving the thing.

Toyota is closing out a busy year with a full redo of the car that made “hybrid” a household word. For over two decades, the Prius has been the source of astounding fuel economy … and the butt of some jokes all because of its gawky looks. Well, no more. In fact, Toyota is out here pulling double-duty with the new car: not only is the Prius stylish, more powerful, and better to drive, but it should serve in the dictionary as the very definition of a glow-up.
