January 19th, 2017 by

The 2017 Prius and the 2017 Prime are two sides of the same coin. The Prime just takes things further into the future. You’ll have your choice at Gloucester Toyota dealer serving Yorktown Va.

Power
The Prius is powered by an engine, battery pack, and electric motor. On the Prime, there’s a much bigger battery that needs recharging. In EV Auto mode, the Prime effortlessly switches between electric motor and gasoline engine. When you need more, the Hybrid mode can take over. For both hybrid and plug-in hybrid, fuel economy is as much as 55 mpg city. The Prime also claims 155 mpg-electric, helping commuters skip the pump even more than regular Prius drivers. Find your best deal.

Quiet
Whether you choose the hybrid or the Prime, you’ll enjoy a quiet ride. Toyota uses sound absorbers in the dash structure and a sound-insulated windshield. Depending on the grade, you’ll also enjoy sound-insulating front door glass. Engineers added a thick silencer pad to the back of the carpet. Urethane-based headliner and front pillar trim are designed to absorb sound. Find financing.

Models
The Prius comes in five editions while the Prime is offered in three. The Prime starts off with more features, including standard navigation. It also offers Entune’s first 11.6-inch touchscreen. Both models have standard crash avoidance features you won’t find on any other hybrid at this price. This includes a lane departure alert and assist as well as automatic braking with pedestrian detection and forward collision warning.
