  • Starting price: $19,080

The "c" in Prius c stands for city, and it is the smallest of the Priuses. Introduced in the 2012 model year as an expansion of the Prius lineup, the Toyota Prius c brought the Prius "family" to four models, which also includes the original Prius, the Prius v small wagon and the Prius Plug-in, which can travel up to 11 miles on battery power alone before seamlessly using the gas-hybrid engine.

All four minicars in the 2013 Toyota Prius c lineup are powered by an electric motor paired with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine to produce 99 horsepower and get an Environmental Protection Agency-estimated 53 mpg city and 46 mpg highway.

Standard features on all models include automatic climate control, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel with controls for audio, hands-free calling, remote keyless entry and nine air bags as well as 60/40-split fold-down rear seats and cruise control on three of four c versions. A moonroof with sliding sunshade and alloy wheels also are optional on some c versions.
