2016 Toyota Prius c vs 2016 Nissan Leaf
When it comes to fuel efficient hybrid vehicles, not many brands can hold a candle to Toyota. We might be biased in making that claim, but with seven different hybrid vehicles on the lineup plugging the hole for seven different types of drivers, it might be difficult to argue with us. For instance, one Prius model was designed with urban, city driving in mind. We thought we’d prove that we’re not just being bias by comparing the 2016 Toyota Prius c vs 2016 Nissan Leaf, to show the advantages and differences between the two vehicles.
Advantages of the 2017 Toyota Prius c
Obviously the most important aspect in vehicles like these two, and thus the most important aspect for our comparison, is fuel efficiency. That’s where our table above kicks off, so we thought we’d start there down here as well. So starting with the first row, the Nissan Leaf utilizes 6.5 litres of fuel to drive 100 kilometres through the city. The Toyota Prius c on the other hand utilizes 2.1 l/100km less fuel than that. That’s a pretty steep advantage, and it’s going to save you a lot of money at the pump. The highway advantage isn’t as steep at 0.8 l/100km, but that’s not as important because the Prius c was designed specifically with city driving in mind.
Unfortunately, as you can see in the next row down, the Prius c does give up one pretty substantial advantage, in that the Nissan Leaf delivers 100 extra horsepower. Of course, once again, with this vehicle being mainly designed with city driving in mind, horsepower isn’t quite as important as it would be in other vehicles, like the Leaf. It is still unfortunate, and the Leaf certainly gets the nod and a big advantage in this aspect.
However, the Prius c fires back again right away by delivering 6.3 extra cubic feet of space in its cargo hold. That’s a lot of extra room for luggage or whatever else you might need to bring along with you. So if these advantages sound intriguing to you, come get behind the wheel of one for yourself by schedule a test drive right here on our website or giving us a call at the sales desk.
