2018 Prius C: Does C stand for compromise?

blue car

The Prius C starts at around $21,000, or $3,000 less than a regular Prius. For that, you might expect a few compromises. Maybe it’s smaller? Less luxurious?

It’s those and sadly many more. The C handles like a U-Haul truck, yet the ride is harsh like a sports car. With only 99 horsepower mated to a loud CVT transmission, the C takes over 11 seconds to reach 60 – a level of lethargy bordering on impractical.

I wanted to like the baby Prius, but it just doesn’t hold a candle to the handsome and overall astonishing Camry Hybrid.
