2016 Toyota Prius vs 2016 Chevy Volt
We wanted to compare both the Prius and Volt against competitors this month, as both vehicles have been completely renovated for the new model year. Instead of finding two competitors, though in some ways it is like comparing apples to oranges, we decided to compare the 2016 Toyota Prius vs 2016 Chevy Volt. Both are hybrid vehicles, but the Prius is a standard hybrid, which only uses the electric motor to complement its combustion engine, whereas the Volt is a plug-in hybrid that uses its electric motor as a main power source and the combustion engine only extends driving range.
Differences between 2016 Toyota Prius, Chevy Volt
So that is the main difference between the two vehicles, and now that you know that we can focus on some of the more key differences between the 2016 Toyota Prius and Chevy Volt to show you exactly what each vehicles advantages are. Let’s start with the topic of fuel efficiency, where both are obviously far superior to most standard gas-powered vehicles. We don’t know exact specs of the new Prius yet, but we can assume its engine will utilizes less than 4.7 l/100km combined which is what the 2015 used. The Volt, on the other hand, thanks to its electric driving range of 85 km, has a fuel economy equivalent of 2.2 l/100km.
If you’re looking at hybrid vehicles, chances are you’re willing to sacrifice some power, but the truth is you’ll be sacrificing more by opting for the Chevy Volt, and you’ll also be sacrificing a lot of trunk space as the Prius has most than double the space. The best way to choose is to come in and try them each out for yourself, so be sure to schedule a couple of test drives right here on our website and we’ll get you all set up.
