Toyota Prius 2009. The Toyota Prius hybrid is the latest generation of the car that accelerated the whole hybrid craze back during its initial introduction in Japan in 1997. The Prius 2009 is everything an intermediate sedan can and should be: powerful, responsive, accommodating, excellent fuel-efficient and clean burning. This sleek, steely mid-size is renowned for its extraordinary fuel efficiency – 4. The Prius is also certified as a super ultra low emission vehicle so, while maximizing your distance, you’re minimizing your emissions. The Toyota Prius, the first and most successful real hybrid car.

The Toyota Prius 2009 is exceptional road miles, but actually improves mileage during city driving. In fact, some cars are designed to handle stop and go driving, such as the Toyota Prius hybrid. Thanks to a revolutionary hybrid gas / electric technology, the electric motor instantly generates maximum torque for instant acceleration. When you’re engaged in low-speed driving, a light push on the accelerator will allow the electric motor and batteries to do the majority of the work. At all times, braking gently and early allows the regenerating feature more time to charge the batteries. 2009 Prius also cheats the wind with its aerodynamic shape; a flat underbelly creates less turbulence and therefore less drag. In what is perhaps the most impressive statistic, Prius boasts a low, sports car-like.

The Toyota Prius 2009 has compact exterior proportions and unique bodywork. The interior of the Prius 2009 is well laid out, and it offers exceptional roominess compared with other cars in its class. It has 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands with the 60/40 split-folding rear seats. The hatchback design has good room for four adults and a versatile rear hatch for cargo. Seating is comfortable, but the seats themselves and much of the interior are finished in lightweight, inexpensive plastics.

The Toyota Prius 2009 also called as hybrid electric car sets the standard for environmentally friendly transportation.It delivers extremely good fuel efficiency for a four-seat car with an automatic transmission. EPA numbers peg combined city/highway fuel economy at 46 mpg. The Prius’s hybrid system combines a 76-horsepower, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor for a combined peak output of 110 horsepower. The Toyota’s hybrid system allows Prius to run on one or both of its power sources to balance acceleration and fuel economy. Prius has a continuously variable automatic transmission (cvt). The full-hybrid Prius can run solely on its electric motor at low speeds until the gas engine kicks in for extra power. This power transition is not as smooth as that seen in newer hybrids. ConsumerGuide.com reports a “slight shudder” on the changeover. While acceleration is pretty slow (zero to 60 mph takes 10.3 seconds, according to Edmunds.com), the electric engine produces plenty of torque, so the Prius has adequately responsive in typical city driving.

The 2009 Toyota Prius is one of the most anticipated hybrid vehicles to hit. While the hybrid marketplace is becoming increasingly crowded, so is demand for quality, fuel efficient vehicles. The Toyota Prius 2009 is ready to tackle the competition, including the 2009 Honda insight which has been dubbed as the Prius killer by some in the industry. The good news for Toyota is that the Prius has a loyal fan base that it can continue to draw from. While the Honda insight may come in with a lower price tag than the Prius, honda hasn’t yet proven that the insight hybrid will have the same kind of reliability or fuel economy that the Prius will have. A lower price tag can’t make up for that kind of reputation. The 2009 Prius is not a driver’s car, but it delivers excellent fuel economy in a versatile package.
