2017 Toyota Prius
Take Everyone By Surprise.
Based on the Yaris’ chassis, the c is the smallest of the Prius family. It is equipped with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder mill that delivers 73 horsepower and works in tandem with a 60-horsepower electric motor. Total output is 99 hp (no, it isn’t just a matter of adding up the two numbers). According to Toyota, this petite front-wheel-drive hybrid consumes 4.5 litres/100 kilometres in the city and 5.1 on the highway.
When the Toyota Prius was overhauled for the 2016 model year, it arrived with an updated exterior design, a more accommodating cabin and a much-improved ride quality. The Prius’ essential appeal, of course, is fuel economy. And with an EPA rating of 52 mpg in combined driving, the latest Prius delivers in a big way.
