The Toyota Prius kicked off the hybrid car market in the U.S. in 2011. The fuel-saving vehicle is so popular that it has expanded its models to include a compact hatchback, the subcompact Prius c and a plug-in hybrid Prius Prime. The Prius, which first went on sale in Japan in 1997, is the best-selling hybrid vehicle in the U.S. It can get up to 59 miles per gallon and ranges in price from $23,000 to $33,000. Newer models also feature all-wheel drive, more cargo space and can come equipped with Toyota's Safety Sense-P (TSS-P) package. 

But which Toyota Prius model is the best of all time? This list ranks Toyota Prius models from best to worst. It also is a great resource for both a vintage Toyota Prius and more contemporary models.
