This is my fourth Toyota purchased from Tony Graham Motors. My 1974 Toyota Celica was purchased in Montreal, because I was living and working there. Surprisingly, the Prius C has a feel on the road like the Celica's - handles the road like a sports car. Yes, the Celica could really move!!
But the Prius does really well in pickup speed, excellent brakes, love the shorter length (compared to my 3 Corollas. The turning circle probably makes a 2 point turn possible, instead of the usual 3 point.
It is fun to drive, and big enough to protect. Audio system is very good for a small space, And, of course, the AC is good, and easy to use.
