The best-selling hybrid car in Japan is the Toyota Aqua, or the Prius c as we know it here, and there are many reasons for why people like it so much as we will see bellow.

First of all, it’s the most efficient hybrid vehicle on the market as it’s 1.5-liter gasoline-electric system has been recently improved managing to return an average fuel economy of 87 mpg (2.7 l/100 km or 37 km/l).

Next comes the fact that it looks pretty cool for a compact hybrid. Unlike the squinting-robot-faced Honda Fit Hybrid, the Prius c looks more stylish and friendly, having tear-drop shaped headlamps, a large trapezoidal grille and nice-flowing lines on its side.

Then comes the interior, which has everything you need for your daily urban rumbling - decent-sized touchscreen infotainment system with multiple connectivity, 3D navigation with optional SUNA traffic avoidance technology, reverse camera, steering mounted Touch Tracer controls, 3.5-inch color multi-information display, push start button, premium materials and more.
