    Need your suggestion where to get its springs changed and should I get the car a little raised aswell because current tyre in this is 215/40/18
    Suggest me what to doooooo
    Oooops, that's a bit too much if you have to keep it as a practical runner. Driven friend's S touring and I already thought that touring suspension with 17" rims would be a slight pain to drive carelessly on potholes and bumps but 18" is way ahead even. My S-Led with 205/65-15 even hits bumps underneath if passing a grave shaped breaker of Pakistani roads with 2 people at the back. So have to slightly tilt at angle and be dead slow for such situations to avoid underbody hitting the grave's peak point. I hate raised cars with spacers at back, seems like a kamani wala taanga when a prius is out of level. Look gets ruined so i opted for one+ tyre size in my case and rest be patient with higher bumps. In your case whatever you do don't get desi juggaar. I would recommend going for original touring 17 rims and one+ tyre size of touring, either same width bigger profile of stock recommendation on 17 or same profile one+ width, the latter may effect consumption though.
    Such beautiful bigger rims and extra low profiles suit if the usage is only on motorways or flat roads without speed graves and potholes but not for practical uneven surfaces like we have. You end up either damaging the rim, tyre or even suspension by using such specs on our majority rough roads

    Well id like to comment here. You need to drive a car yourself to understand how it behaves. Especially when it comes to economy figures. The consumption majorly depends on the driving style. I've managed to get 31kmpl from a prius and the same car did 24 on the same route, both with A/C. These are not just like 1 time figures i can achieve it day in day out. I've achieved 20~21 (reading on cars display) between lahore and faisalabad with cruise at 110.
    On a side note, we're getting 23~24 from our vezel, but if somebody asks me the how I'm averaging i mention 20. Because I know people expect to buy a hybrid, drive it like any other car and expect to get FREE transportation, which doesn't happen. Most of the prii I've seen average between 17 and 19..
    If you're thinking of buying a prius for your city just for saving money on fuel, my brotherly suggestion would be, don't even think about it. The money it saves you on gas would go back and level for the competitively higher maintenance rate. But, on the other hand if you're looking for an upgrade, looking for quality, comfort and features. If say you can trust a prius with your eyes closed.

    aoa... first of all thanks loads for writing a detailed reply to my post. Secondly, bhai aap nay tau mujhay aisay samajh liya hay jaisay FX say upgrade kar raha hoon, that too a Type R sticker waalee FX hehehe...just kidding. I am a seasoned (and i wud claim, a PRO hypermiller) on any car i have driven/owned to date, so yeah i m very sure i know that if i drive the car harsh it wont give me any average. As a reference, i can tell u that i have clocked 24.3 km to a liter from Pindi to Haripur on my Honda City My point wasnt in the sense that i would own a Prius, drive it like a Lambo and expect figures of 50 km to a liter. Nonetheless, i wanted to "clarify" as ppl here on Pakwheels have been claiming to have averaged more than 32 "REGUALRLY" in local drive, specially on this new gen Hybrid Synergy (the 1.8s). Otherwise, i have no doubt whatsoever about the JDM quality, value for money, drive, comfort, safety and all the other features. By the Grace of Almighty have 3 JDMs parked at my parents (all searched and suggested by me) with at least 20-30 cars searched and recommended to friends all over the country was owner of a Platz 2003 before this City and till today claim this new car is **** infront of what that was. Anyways,i got my answer, thanks to u, that if i drive the Prius the way i drive my city, i wud be getting the figures much higher than the other brother have mentioned here as his replies suggest that he has a heavy foot. i on the other hand, never ever EVER cross speed limits (fauji bunda hoon....rules ka aashiq)
    thanks once again for ur detailed reply
    PS : Vezel is love. Have driven few in Karachi, almost all trims. A class above for sure. Happy driving

    Go for 205/60 instead of 195/60 on 16. 195/60-16 gets further lower than even 195/65-15

    I don't think this tyre size as as easily available around. 195/70-15 is used in vans and its that ugly tread design which is easily available in that size. I can only imagine how ugly it would look on a Prius.
