2016 Toyota Prius c Edmonton AB
When you think of hybrid vehicles, chances are the Toyota Prius is one of – if not the – first vehicles to pop into your head. But were you aware that there is more than one type of Prius? There are in fact four members of the Toyota Prius family, three of which are generally available right here at Wheaton Toyota on the Trail. Let’s first take a look at the smallest of the three, the 2016 Toyota Prius c in Edmonton AB, which is a hatchback hybrid designed to be driven in the city.
Specs & Features of the 2016 Toyota Prius c
How do you design something to be driven in the city, rather than elsewhere? By optimizing its city fuel economy, making it extremely efficient when driving around places like downtown Edmonton. The 2016 Toyota Prius c is powered by a 1.5L inline 4-cylinder Atkinson cycle gasoline engine in conjunction with a high-torque electric motor, which combine to give it a 4.5 l/100km city fuel efficiency. That isn’t to say it can’t be driven on the highway, as its efficiency there is still 5.1 l/100km.
But it is more efficient when driven through the city, making it the perfect commuter vehicle for young business people or local college students. Its hybrid drivetrain may only allow for 99 horsepower, but thanks to its low curb weight of 2,500 lbs. that isn’t nearly as bad as it sounds. We still wouldn’t suggest you enter any drag races, but you’ll at least be able to enjoy the drive whenever you slide behind the wheel of your 2016 Toyota Prius c.
If you think that this sounds like the perfect hybrid hatchback for you, we recommend you take it for a spin yourself. You can schedule a test drive either right here on our website, or by giving us a call at the sales desk – where we can also answer any questions that weren’t answered on this page. We look forward to helping you find the perfect vehicle!
