Just because you want to have a hybrid from Toyota doesn’t mean you have to get stuck with the boring looks and performance of the Prius. Take this car, for example. If you didn’t know any better, you wouldn’t know that it’s a hybrid. You also wouldn’t know that it’s pushing out a more than adequate 295 horsepower.more →
