If you’re shopping for a new car such as the 2017 Toyota Corolla, we invite you to visit our Toyota dealership on Main Street to see our inventory of new Toyota cars. While the new Toyota Corolla is a hit with car buyers throughout the country, the 2016 Toyota Prius remains a consumer favorite. Fully redesigned for the 2016 model year, the Toyota Prius boasts outstanding fuel economy, generous cargo space, and distinct exterior styling touches that make the vehicle stand out on the road.
2016 Toyota Prius Details
The Toyota Prius is a five-passenger hatchback that’s a ton of fun to drive. Like the 2017 Toyota Camry, the Toyota Prius has several attention-grabbing trims, including the Two, Two Eco, Three, Three Touring, Four, and Four Touring. The Toyota Prius is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. When you apply your brakes with light or moderate pressure, one of the motors acts like a generator to keep the vehicle’s hybrid battery charged.
The redesigned Toyota Prius has a more advanced rear suspension than its predecessors did. This change enables the 2016 Toyota Prius to provide a smoother ride and sharper handling than previous iterations were able to deliver. In addition to changing the automobile’s rear suspension, the Toyota brand incorporated soft-touch surfaces, some chrome, and a high-tech appearance into the hatchback’s new interior design.
2016 Toyota Prius Safety and Special Features
As Toyota dealers, we like all of the standard and available features the Toyota Prius has. As you’ll see when you arrive at our Toyota dealership near San Diego, CA, the specific features your hatchback will have are determined by the trim you decide to buy or lease. All of the Toyota Prius models have the following safety features: antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, and a rearview camera. A blind spot monitor that has a rear cross-traffic alert is standard on the top two trims. The Toyota Safety Sense options package is standard on the Three Touring and Four Touring trims and optional on Three and Four models. This options package includes adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning, and a lane departure warning and mitigation system.
We can assure you that you’ll appreciate the standard convenience and comfort features on the 2016 Toyota Prius. On Three models, these features include automatic LED headlights, running lights and taillights, heated mirrors, automatic climate control, two 4.2-inch driver information screens, Bluetooth and audio connectivity, and voice recognition.
