There is no doubt that Toyota is the leader in hybrid technology and there is no hybrid like the Toyota Prius. The Prius isn't just about fuel efficiency but it is also about a practical interior and futuristic features all at a great value. For the most part, the 2017 Toyota Prius remains unchanged from the 2016 model year though one new change is the formerly optional Toyota Safety Sense package is now standard on all Prius trims. For the 2017 model year, the fuel-efficient Prius receives an EPA-estimated 52 mpg combined.
The 2017 Prius is a four-door hatchback that seats five passengers. It is available in six trims, Two, Two Eco, Three, Three Touring, Four and Four Touring. There is also three other Prius models including the compact Prius C, larger Prius V and all-new Prius Prime. The 2017 Prius comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a pair of electric motors and has a combined output of 121 horsepower.
All Prius models now feature standard Toyota Safety Sense P which features pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams and full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control.
A double-wishbone rear suspension gives the 2017 Prius responsive handling and a smooth ride. The condensed design takes up less space outside of the cabin so there is plenty of available cargo room inside.
The 2017 Prius features all of the best technology features including enhanced parking support, Qi-compatible wireless charging, color head-up display, smart-flow climate control, Smart Key system and Entune Premium Audio.
The 2017 Toyota Prius has more cargo space than the previous generation Prius, 3 full cubic feet more to be exact, all thanks to the double-wishbone rear suspension. The cargo space of the 2017 Prius stands at 24.6 cubic feet while the Prius Two Eco and Prius Four offer more space, 27.4 cubic feet due to the lack of a spare tire. On the inside, customers will find the 2017 Prius offers a convenient layout with high-quality materials found throughout.
You wouldn't expect the base model to offer so many premium features but that is just what Toyota offers with the 2017 Prius. The Prius base model, the Prius Two comes standard with LED headlights, LED running lights and taillights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, automatic climate control, dual 4.2-inch driver information screens, a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, a rearview camera, Bluetooth and much more.
