Not only easy on your wallet and the environment, the 2016 Toyota Prius is now navigating the slalom courses with the best of them! Armed with a new rear suspension, the road-hugging 2016 Prius delivers an exciting and unmatched driving experience. Racecar fans, rejoice. Discover why Edmunds calls the 2016 Toyota Prius “…the most agreeable-driving Prius yet.”

With modern good looks and striking curb appeal, the 2016 Toyota Prius delivers a memorable first impression. Gracefully swooping lines, deeply slanted LEDs, and a sharply contoured rear create quite a picture. The 2016 Toyota Prius is available in six different trims: Two, Two Eco, Three, Three Touring, Four, and Four Touring. The Eco model receives the highest fuel economy, while the Touring models feature sporty styling.

The 2016 Toyota Prius’ interior is well-designed and finished with upscale materials. There is ample seating for five with standard fabric upholstery; synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat are available. Standard interior features include automatic climate control, a rearview camera, proximity key, push-button start, a USB port, voice command recognition, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free voice-controlled iPhone integration, six-speaker sound system, and three display screens in the dashboard.

The 2016 Toyota Prius is just plain fun to drive. The Prius has a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors which collectively produce 121 horsepower. A continuously variable automatic transmission is standard. With a new-and-improved “double wishbone” rear suspension, the 2016 Prius navigates tight corners and makes quick transitions with ease. The Prius Eco model achieves an astounding EPA-estimated 58/53 mpg city/highway, and the other models attain a still overly impressive 54/50 mpg city/highway. Motor Trend comments, “…the new Prius is worlds more enjoyable to drive, both around town and pushing on canyon roads, than the old one. There’s a pulse here in this new Prius, a sense of life.”
