Toyota was one of the first auto brands to bring hybrids to the everyday driver, and with the 2016 Toyota Prius, their hybrid technology has reached new heights of innovation. The 2016 Chevrolet Volt is nice, but it cannot match the level of hybrid excellence that the Toyota Prius provides.

New Features for the 2016 Prius

the Toyota Prius is back and better than ever, with a sleek new look and an exciting new thirst for the road (but not for gasoline!) Toyota updates its iconic Prius for the 2016 model year, giving it a 60-percent increase in torsional rigidity, a longer, more fluid body; a lower and a more athletic roofline that reduces the coefficient of drag (Cd) even more than the original model's design. The width of the 2016 Prius was also increased to give it a lower center of gravity and a more athletic stance and riving dynamic. The extensive exterior changes have given the hybrid more interior space and has made this already-efficient even more fuel-friendly. The 2016 Prius also features a new 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with improved efficiency technology, a new multilink independent rear suspension, and a new and lighter electric motor and battery pack system (Prius Two Eco trim and above).

Value

As compact hybrids, both the Toyota Prius and Chevrolet Volt are engineered to save you money on fuel. Considering the fuel-efficient powertrains in both of these efficient hybrid cars, you will be able to use the vehicles on a regular basis and not have to worry about filling up your gas tank too much. However, if you are looking to get the most bang for your buck at the gas station and are looking to get into a vehicle that can save you money in the initial purchase, then the new Prius is one of the best options. The 2016 Toyota Prius starts at an MSRP of $24,200, while the Volt has a starting MSRP of $33,170. Right out of the gate you get a massive savings of $8,970 when you choose the 2016 Prius over the Chevy Volt. The 2016 Prius Three starts at $26,250 and features the upgraded battery pack and a host of amazing features in addition to those found in the Prius Two. You could get a full-loaded Prius Four Touring, which starts at an MSRP of $30,000, and still pay much less than you would to get the base-level Chevrolet Volt.

Fuel Economy

When it comes to saving you money on fuel, nothing can match a compact hybrid. Both the Chevrolet Volt and Toyota Prius shine at saving you money on fuel and can save you a large amount of money every year in fuel costs versus fuel costs of traditional vehicle drivers. However, the 2016 Toyota Prius has a hold on the fuel economy handle that is quite a bit tighter than the Volt's. The 2016 Toyota Prius is equipped with a 1.8-liter gasoline engine that’s matched to an electric motor and a new lithium-ino battery pack (in the Prius Two Eco and upper trims). The powertrain is linked up with an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), allowing the Prius to return up to 54 miles per gallon city and 50 miles per gallon highway, which is 52 miles per gallon combined. By comparison, the Chevrolet Volt’s 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder gasoline engine can only return 43 miles per gallon city and 42 miles per gallon highway (42 miles per gallon combined) in coordination with its hybrid system and CVT transmission. Don't mess with the original, the 2016 Toyota Prius wins the fuel economy round and leaves the Chevy Volt in its (eco-friendly) dust once again.

Interior Features and Equipment

While the Prius is classified as a compact hybrid, Toyota packed the vehicle with a lengthy list of interior features to provide you with a comfortable ride on a routine basis. With the Prius’ extensive list of interior features, you will be able to enjoy driving the compact hybrid every day. Standard and optional interior features on the 2016 Prius include a power tilting and sliding moonroof, driver's head-up display, the Entune JBL Premium Audio system, voice-recognition navigation, SofTex upholstery, an eight-way power driver’s seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Qi wireless smartphone charging system, a 4.3-inch TFT color multi-information display for the driver, HomeLink integration, a smart key system with push-button start, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and more. The 2016 Toyota Prius is a much better value than the 2016 Chevrolet Volt, and thanks to the Prius' affordable price tag, you can get the features and amenities you want without sacrificing in your choice of vehicle.

Warranty

Come and test drive the 2016 Toyota Prius at Cumberland Toyota and you will be amazed at how effortless it is to get great fuel economy every day. To keep you feeling confident with every drive you take, the 2016 Prius comes backed by an extensive warranty package that the Chevy Volt can't match. During your initial years of ownership, you won't have to worry about your Prius breaking down, rusting, or falling into disrepair of any kind. The 2016 Toyota Prius is covered by a 5-year/60,000-mile drivetrain warranty and a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper new car warranty. Every 2016 Toyota Prius also comes with ToyotaCare, which covers you for two years or 25,000 miles for no-cost scheduled maintenance and 24-hour roadside assistance. The 2016 Chevy Volt does not offer a similar package.
