5 Reasons the 2016 Toyota Prius is Better than the Older Ones

Toyota Prius Birmingham

The current Toyota Prius has been with us since 2009. And while the current Prius is a great car, the 2016 model is even better! Here are a few reasons why the 2016 version is even more amazing than its predecessors.

2016 Toyota Prius Fuel Economy

Believe it or not, the 2016 Toyota Prius will offer even better fuel economy. This is HUGE since most people who buy a Prius are doing so because of the great fuel efficiency. The 2016 Prius gets an estimated 54 mpg in the city* and 50 mpg on the highway*. This is great news for the environment and for your wallet!

Toyota Prius Space

The 2016 Prius is also larger than the older models. The new Prius is 2.4 inches longer, 0.6 inches wider, and 0.8 inches lower than the previous model. Toyota’s goal for altering the dimensions was to get a little more passenger room out of the hatchback.

Toyota Prius Handling

The 2016 Prius also handles better than the older ones. With a sportier front strut setup, double-wishbone rear suspension, a lower center of gravity, and a more rigid body, the 2016 Toyota Prius is fun to drive and fun to ride in.

Toyota Prius Exterior Design

Another improvement to the Prius is the exterior design. The new Prius looks like a coupe with its aggressive LED headlights, sporty, modern taillights, and cool rear fascia. Beautiful contrasting colors on the interior add to the new sporty feel.

Toyota Prius Safety

The new Prius will feature Toyota’s Safety Sense (TSS) suite of safety and convenience technologies, which will include an automated pre-collision braking system with pedestrian detection, a lane departure warning system with steering assist, and a radar cruise control system, and automatic high beams.

If you are a fan of the old Prius, then we know you will love the new one. Come see our large selection of 2016 Priuses at Limbaugh Toyota located in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama!
