Official 2016 Toyota Prius Power and Fuel Economy Specs
If you are looking for a new vehicle that blends a spirited performance with unrivaled fuel economy ratings, an athletic style, well-equipped interior and an affordable price, look no further than the next-generation 2016 Toyota Prius. All of the excitement surrounding the latest edition of the iconic Toyota hybrid has been well deserved and is evidenced by the official 2016 Toyota Prius power and fuel economy specs that have recently been released. With a wealth of new technology under the hood, the new Toyota Prius is everything we hoped it would be in terms of performance.
What’s Under the Hood of the 2016 Toyota Prius?
Available in six trim levels including an all-new and uber-efficient Prius Two Eco grade and with a starting MSRP of $24,200, the Toyota Prius gives you plenty of bang for your buck. Under the hood, the 2016 Toyota Prius harnesses the power of a 1.8-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine and two small electric motors that employ a new transaxle and power control unit. With new technology at its disposal, the Toyota Prius powertrain manufactures a fun-to-drive 121 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque.
Many elements that have gone into the 2016 Toyota Prius powertrain are dedicated to creating a more efficient performance. Lighter engine components allow you to get the most out of your drive and paired with a more efficient lithium-ion hybrid battery and planetary continuously variable transmission, standard Toyota Prius models are expected to get 54 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on the highway. These numbers make the 2016 Toyota Prius the most efficient, mass-produced car on the road without a plug.
The power and fuel economy numbers improve even further when you delve deeper into the Toyota Prius Two Eco trim. Where standard models improve class-leading fuel economy, the Prius Eco trim takes it to another level entirely. Outfitted with an even lighter array of engine components, a potent nickel metal-hydride battery and a sleek, more aerodynamic profile, the 2016 Toyota Prius Two Eco grade is expected to achieve an incredible 58 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway.
If you are looking for exceptional fuel economy and a dynamic driving experience, the 2016 Toyota Prius may be exactly what you are looking for. Just take a look at the official 2016 Toyota Prius power and fuel economy specs if you are looking for proof. We expect the 2016 Toyota Prius to arrive in the Allan Nott showroom later this year and bring with it a new-age style and class-leading performance.
