The 2016 Toyota Prius MPG Helps Drivers Save

March 9th, 2016 by

2016 Toyota PriusSince it first arrived on the market over 15 years ago, the Toyota Prius has made an impression on drivers across the country thanks to its outstanding hybrid fuel economy delivered in a functional, well-rounded, and versatile package. Offering the practicality of a hatchback with the comfort of a small family sedan, the Toyota Prius is the chosen hybrid on the market today. The total redesign of the 2016 Toyota Prius brings even more to the mix, and the new powertrain means the 2016 Toyota Prius mpg and performance ratings are even better than the outgoing model.

Hybrid Performance

What gives the 2016 Toyota Prius its power? Every model runs on a 1.8L four-cylinder engine and two electric motors that serve as generators powered by a hybrid battery pack. The power from this hybrid powertrain is channeled through a continuously variable transmission to produce a total output of 121 hp. The 2016 Prius is also a more agile performer than the model it replaces, thanks to an all-new double-wishbone rear suspension and increased body rigidity. By opting for the Touring trim, you’ll even get an exclusive touring-tuned suspension.

Hybrid Fuel Economy

Despite its increased performance, the precision engineering and design of the new model has boosted the 2016 Toyota Prius’ MPG ratings above the outgoing model. On a standard model, you can expect to achieve an incredible 54 mpg city and 50 mpg highway, according to estimates from the EPA. If you decide to go with the Two Eco trim, you’ll get a lighter lithium-ion battery pack, a lightweight inflation kit, and lower resistance tires to increase fuel economy to a laudable EPA-estimated 58 mpg city and 53 mpg highway.
