I rented a Toyota Prius for this business trip. It’s the first time I’ve driven one.
The car’s not perfect. The controls aren’t intuitive on first use and the car felt like it surged a little on the freeway. The rearview mirror is in a fixed location rather than being able to be positioned higher. With my height (6’3″), it blocks my view to the right-front, which is primarily a problem at intersections.
I still like it. The Prius feels solid and is fun to drive. It doesn’t feel underpowered (though my baseline for comparison is a Honda CRV). The console between the front seats is capacious and comfortable. I like all the technology and its mileage is a plus.

Update. After driving the car for another day, I took more pictures and learned more cool features. Click the pictures for the updates.
