2016 Toyota Prius

The premier hybrid vehicle that made the public realize a green car can also be user-friendly and a great fit for everyday use, the Toyota Prius now has nearly two decades under its belt. The new 2016 Toyota Prius brings a cutting-edge sense of style along with a number of upgrades in a totally redesigned vehicle that still shines through with better fuel economy than ever before. The 2016 Toyota Prius comes in three trim levels: Prius, Prius Technology, and Prius Touring.



Forward Thinking, Inside and Out

Featuring sleek, modern design, the four-door 2016 Toyota Prius brings a whole new face to the crowd - set it next to the previous generation, and you may be hard-pressed to find many similarities. The aerodynamic shape which lets the Prius cut through the air effortlessly and improve fuel economy is still there, but it now sports creases and curves. The front end borders on futuristic, thanks to cut and angled LED headlamp assemblies that taper up towards the cabin. Low-set fog lamps border a bottom grille with active grille shutters and lead into grooves that underscore the sides of the Prius. To the rear, cut-and-creased shoulders wrap around to a standard rear spoiler that help lengthen the profile of the vehicle. Blacked-out pillars provide a modern floating roof appearance, while stylish 17-inch allow wheels to dress up the appearance even further. The window glass features solar absorption to protect your passengers from harmful UV rays, and if more sun is desired, you can add a power slide and tilt moonroof. Heated mirrors prevent ice and snow build-up in the winter.

Fabric and SofTex materials border the seats in the 2016 Toyota Prius, with the cabin trimmed in durable hard plastics and soft-touch surfaces - a mix of glossy and bright surfaces, accenting the futuristic interior layout and exterior appearance. Five passengers will find plenty of room in the supportive seats, with 1001 millimeters of headroom and 1074 millimeters of legroom up front, while the rear features 950 millimeter and 848 millimeters, respectively. Front seats can be heated, with the driver's seat having 8-way power adjustability available. Another great convenience for the driver is the Toyota Smart Key System, which allows the driver to lock and unlock doors or start the engine without removing the key from their purse or pocket. The 6.1-inch panel display audio with AM/FM/CD, USB input port, auxiliary audio jack and steering-wheel mounted controls is standard, with the available 7.0-inch system adding navigation into the mix. Bluetooth Hands-Free phone connectivity is standard on all models, so you can stay connected while keeping your focus on the road, while text-to-speech capabilities are available. Voice recognition software is also standard across all models. On top of all this, the Prius offers plenty of cargo capacity, with 697 liters of space behind the rear seats.

Efficient and Smooth

Everyone recognizes the Prius for providing maximum fuel efficiency, and the 2016 Toyota Prius is no different. The hybrid powertrain is connected to an electronically-controlled Continuously Variable Transmission for constant, smooth acceleration and impressive fuel efficiency, while the integrated regenerative braking system helps to recover and regenerate energy, extending range and reducing fuel usage.
