Are you ready for change? We know we are, especially when it comes to the Toyota Prius. Back for its 4th generation, the redesigned 2016 Toyota Prius is better than ever in every regard. You’ll find new styling, improved performance, and greater efficiency with this bold update to the Prius. What began as a small four-door hybrid sedan in 2001 has become a worldwide phenomenon that is strikingly beautiful and works hard to clean the planet one mile at a time. Though no longer a four-door sedan, the Toyota Prius has grown into a respectable five-door hatchback with an aerodynamic egg-shape profile. The outgoing 2015 Toyota Prius looks tame in comparison to the exaggerated styling of the 2016 Toyota Prius. Come see it for yourself at Marina del Rey Toyota in West Los Angeles, CA today!

Increased Performance

The 2016 Toyota Prius has been redesigned with you in mind. When you get behind the wheel of a hybrid, you typically don’t have very high expectations for performance and handling, but the new Prius seeks to change that. With a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that makes 95 horsepower and an electric motor that puts out 71 horsepower, the 2016 Toyota Prius defies all odds with a combined output of 166 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque. But that’s not all. The refreshed Toyota Prius adds to the increased power an all-new chassis that’s more rigid than the outgoing model. The stiffer body, along with the new double-wishbone rear suspension, helps give the 2016 Prius a more comfortable ride, as well as improved handling and steering response. Once you’re behind the wheel of the new Toyota Prius, you’ll forget that you’re driving a super fuel efficient hybrid. The 2016 Toyota Prius helps build driver confidence with precise control of the vehicle.
