2016 Toyota Prius vs 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid
While Toyota has made a lot of waves for the 2016 model year, including introducing the brand-new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, the biggest news was of course the generational shift of the Toyota Prius. Completely renovated from bumper to bumper, the new Prius doesn’t just deliver the efficient hybrid technology Toyota fans have come to expect, but an all-new design that promises drivers won’t have to sacrifice style for economy. We thought we’d see how the new Prius measures up to another stylish hybrid available on the market, so we decided to compare the 2016 Toyota Prius vs 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Prius
Taking a look at the table above it becomes easy to see that the new Prius delivers the same great specifications that Prius enthusiasts desire. While the most exciting changes to the new generation were cosmetic, this table shows that its specifications are still superior to the other hybrid vehicles in its segment, thus proving that sacrificing appearance isn’t a necessity to keep the same great specs & features.
The first aspect we looked at was of course fuel efficiency, without a doubt the most important specification in a hybrid vehicle. On both the highway and through city streets, the Prius outpaces the Fusion Hybrid by a full litre. But its advantage isn’t the only thing that’s impressive, it’s fuel economy ratings themselves are impressive enough – with 4.3 l/100km city and 4.7 l/100km highway.
For the Prius, the advantages don’t simply stop at efficiency either. The original hybrid vehicle also delivers more than twice the amount of cargo space, and nearly 3 extra cubic feet of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to get comfortable in. Throw in all of the great features, including a suite of excellent safety technologies, and the 2016 Toyota Prius is still the ultimate hybrid vehicle money can buy.
