Used 2016 Toyota Prius at Thompson Toyota for Edgewood, MD

The 2016 Toyota Prius comes into the spotlight as a hybrid leader not only in the United States but the entire world.  Overall it largely remains unchanged as a vehicle with a normal engine that is then supplemented on demand by an electric motor pushing power to the front wheels.  The vehicle is in its 4th generation while its Synergy Drive has been engineered to become even more efficient and its ratings in the fuel-economy department remain the highest for any vehicle that does not have a plug.  The Prius is a vehicle that is full of many other great things such as a unique sense of style, structured and well-built chassis, welcoming interior design and more.  The vehicle also is very quiet in the cabin even when under power. With so much going on it is certainly destined to remain a leader.

Under the Prius's Hood

The world-famous Synergy Drive that started on the Prius has been incorporated on many other vehicles the brand offers and even has been licensed to other companies.  This model year finds a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder producing 95 horsepower and 105 lb.-ft. of torque.  The permanent magnet AC electric motor produces 71 horsepower and 120 lb.-ft. of torque. Also, in all but the base trim, the electrical side of the powertrain is supported by a lithium-ion battery pack. The base model continues to use nickel-metal hydride batteries. The total system output is 121 horsepower with fuel economy at 54 mpg in the city and 50 on the highway and a bit better with the Eco model.

Design of Toyota Prius

The interior of the Prius has been completely redesigned.  There are not one but two 4.2-inch color info screens with lots of primary instrumentation placed above the dashboard. The top trim levels also come with a color heads up display and detection used to monitor pedestrians close to the vehicle.  The screens the instruments are housed in sit in more of the center as well as the materials being used seem much more luxurious than previous models. Reduced height of the center console gives the front compartment a more open feeling, and the rear compartment feels roomier despite a very small reduction in interior volume and a lower roofline.  The exterior of the Prius is longer, lower and wide than previous designs.  The 2016 Prius has a very strong presence and is way more aerodynamic than older designs.
