Advantages of the 2018 Toyota Prius
A glance at the table above will show you that each vehicle certainly has its own advantages, as we analyzed four of the most important specifications when it comes to shopping for a hybrid sedan like these. Without a doubt, the most important of these aspects has to be fuel efficiency. If fuel efficiency wasn’t important to you, you probably wouldn’t be looking into a hybrid sedan.
The first row of the table depicts fuel efficiency when driving through city streets, and in that regard the Prius utilizes a full 1.6 litres less fuel to travel the same 100 kilometres as the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. On the highway, as depicted in the second row, the Sonata Hybrid closes the gap but still utilizes 0.5 l/100km more than the Prius.

|121 HP||Horsepower||193 HP|

The tradeoff for the Toyota Prius model’s superior fuel efficiency is that it doesn’t offer nearly as much power as the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. With just 121 horsepower, 72 HP less than the Hyundai, the Prius doesn’t have quite as much pick up. If you’re okay with a with giving up a bit of enjoyment behind the wheel in exchange for saving a bunch of money at the pump, then the Prius is for you.
Additionally, the final row shows that the Prius hatchback offers a ton of extra space for cargo, over ten whole cubic feet in fact.
