Believe it or not, I’m actually a fan of the standard Toyota Prius — but don’t go telling everyone that, I’ve got an image to maintain. Over four generations, Toyota has continued to refine and improve its signature hybrid into one of the most fuel-efficient cars that you can buy without a plug. (It’s second only to the new Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.) Of course, adding a plug to the equation — and all of the advantages that come with a plug-in hybrid — should only make the Prius more desirable.

Only, Toyota didn’t just add a plug and a bigger battery to the 2017 Prius Prime and call it a day. The automaker also made a host of changes to the cabin tech, visual style and features, some good and some very bad.

In the end, the Prius Prime is, in some ways, worse at being a car than the standard Prius liftback while also being a much better Prius. I’m sure that sounds confusing, so allow me to explain.
