The hybrid drivetrain – coupled with a wind-cheating co-efficiency of drag of just 0.24 and standard 15” low-rolling resistance tires – is capable of returning astronomical fuel efficiency figures. Toyota’s 5-cycle method of testing fuel economy returns 4.4L per 100km (53 MPG) in the city and 4.6L per 100 km (51 MPG) on the highway.

The 2016 Prius is going to ensure you won’t need to visit a gas station very often outside of snack breaks. Standard LED Tail Lights, Headlamps and Daytime Running Lights do their part by lowering power consumption, and help to improve fuel efficiency.

The 2016 Prius boasts increased body torsional rigidity, a lower centre of gravity, as well as a new double wishbone rear suspension. These improvements are a result of Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which Toyota says “is an innovative, integrated approach to vehicle development, engineering and manufacture, including new production equipment and revolutionary new processes.”

In addition to the handling improvements that the TNGA platform yields, the Prius also benefits from improved acceleration and a smooth and direct response in a lower RPM range. Brake feel has been improved has with a newly developed active hydraulic booster for its regenerative brakes.
