All cars get a CVT auto, but while past cars have been hindered by the slow responses of the gearbox, it’s much better in the current Prius. Front-wheel drive is standard across the range, although a four-wheel drive Prius is now available from 2019 onwards.
The biggest drawback of having a hybrid car is that it can burn a hole in your pocket. Hybrid cars are comparatively expensive than a regular petrol car and can cost $5000 to $10000 more than a standard version. However, that extra amount can be offset with lower running costs and tax exemptions.
