It’s finally here. The all-new 2016 Toyota Prius redesign has ushered in a new era for the legendary hybrid vehicle. Its striking exterior design, improved fuel economy and a whole new driving dynamics platform make us excited for the arrival of the 2016 Prius.
2016 Toyota Prius Fuel Economy
Anticipated fuel economy of the 2016 Prius is expected to be 54 MPG in the city and 50 MPG on the highway for a combined 52 MPG. These expected numbers will be better than any mass-produced passenger vehicle that you don’t have to plug into a wall.

Next-level Prius Powertrain
Like the third-generation vehicle, the Prius’ Hybrid Synergy Drive combines the output of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gas engines and two motors through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). But the 2016 Toyota Prius is smaller and lighter than previous versions, thanks to lighter components and a new lithium ion battery that has replaced the old nick-metal battery. Placed under the rear seat, the new battery is smaller and flatter.
2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Torque Numbers
The brand new hybrid system is able to operate more efficiently and quieter. Prius drivers can choose between Normal driving mode, which balances fuel economy and acceleration, and Power driving mode, which makes acceleration a priority.
Its new design is not only for looks; the aerodynamic body was shaped by a wind tunnel to exude a sporty feel and a forward motion. We can’t wait to see the 2016 Toyota Prius up close and personal!
