What’s even more astounding is that it still uses the same basic formula, with only minor tweaks to the powertrain over the last dozen years. Hey, if it ain’t broke, right?

“Toyota will keep the good times rolling in the 2013 model year, carrying over the same 1.8L four-cylinder engine with an Atkinson cycle, plus eco-friendly tricks like variable valve timing (VVT), regenerative brakes and low rolling resistance tires. The Prius is a model of efficiency and reliability, and the go-to vehicle for any eco-friendly customer.”
