The MPG stats of the 2017 Toyota Prius are as impressive as ever, with estimates that range from 50 to 53 mpg in the city and 54 to 58 mpg on the highway*. It has plethora of features that contribute to its mind-blowing performance, and that’s why the Prius has been setting the standard in its class for sixteen years.
Inside the Brilliance
One secret to the excellent mileage in the 2017 Toyota Prius is its combination of power sources, with each maximizing output for effectiveness. The Prius has a 1.8L four-cylinder gasoline engine and battery-powered electric motor. Their combined power joins forces and passes through the electronically controlled continuously variable transmission for an output of 121 hp (90kW). This balance of power delivers jaw-dropping EPA-estimated mileage at every trim level.
Other Economical Features
It’s not just the power sources that contribute to its competitive fuel economy. The Prius was designed for efficiency on every level, and it looks distinctive and athletic while doing it. Take its streamlined, aerodynamic lines, for example, and the active grille made to go with the wind, not fight it, by automatically opening and closing to make the most of airflow and reduce the time it takes to warm up the engine. Underbody panels and special fins with aero-stabilizing capabilities also help increase fuel efficiency. And, the Prius also cones with driving modes, meaning drivers can change the way they’re driving on the fly, by selecting ECO Mode to further maximize fuel economy, or using EV Mode13 to using only battery power for up to one-half mile under specific conditions.
