For those wondering what the “C” means in the Prius C nameplate, it stands for CLEAN, COMPACT, CLEVER, and CITY. The Prius C by auto giant Toyota is popularly known as a safe, comfortable, and environment-friendly hybrid vehicle with unconventional exterior design. The Toyota Prius C comes in a more urban-friendly and maneuverable subcompact hatchback package. There might be a few Prius-esque designs present in the Toyota Prius C, but the car's overall styling is more conventional compared to its bigger sibling. The wind-cheating shape of the Toyota Prius C enables the vehicle to have a decent 0.28 coefficient of drag despite being a small hatchback. The interior features a completely digital gauge cluster, which is expected from a Toyota Hybrid. It also has a 6.5 inches central touchscreen, which is becoming a standard feature in most subcompact vehicles today. The leather-clad cabin also comes with automatic climate control. Under the hood of the Toyota Prius C lies a 1.5L gasoline engine that creates 98 horsepower and a 45 kW electric motor that makes 60 horsepower. Similar to most hybrids, the engine of the Toyota Prius is paired to a continuously variable transmission that is electronically controlled. It also comes with EV and ECO mode settings.
