“Toyota is committed to maintaining its leadership position in designing, engineering and building environmentally-advanced vehicles that meet the many demands of today’s drivers – which is why the 2017 Prius sets new standards for efficiency and emissions even as it provides owners with more style and driving fun. We’re delighted that members of AJAC agree, and thank them for this important award.”

2017 Toyota Prius Fuel Efficiency & Power
Not only was the 2017 Toyota Prius built with the new Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain, but it’s also one of the first vehicles to utilize the Toyota New Global Architecture platform. TNGA was designed to enhance performance, safety and many other aspects of the vehicle, including its environmental impact.
Powered by a 1 .8L 4-cylinder engine alongside its powerful electric motor, the 2017 Prius is able to generate 121 horsepower while still only utilizing an incredible 4.5 litres of fuel to travel 100 kilometres. This award-winning Prius is the most efficient version of the hybrid vehicle ever built, and we couldn’t be more excited to make it available right here in Edmonton.
