The 2017 Toyota Prius mpg ratings make it ready to remold the expectations that Daytona Beach and Palm Coast drivers hold concerning the ability to combine compelling power with attractive efficiency. Dynamically styled and possessing one of the most advanced hybrid powertrains in the segment, the new Prius is both thrilling to drive and a consummate fuel-sipper.

Cutting-Edge Powertrain

The 2017 Toyota Prius has set the standard for the hybrid segment since its very inception, and the Prius family has since managed to save 11,794,335 tons of CO2 emissions from being released into the atmosphere.

Today’s Prius is able to unite that kind of Earth-friendly drive with sporty road manners thanks to a 1.8L engine and a pair of electric motors. Their combined power will put up to 121 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque at your disposal, with that output controlled through a top-of-the-line Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

Such an output allows the Prius to cover zero to 60 mph in just 9.8 seconds, but efficiency scores still come out at a phenomenal 54 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on the highway** with base-level models, or an even more impressive 58 mpg in the city and 58 mpg on the highway* with a Two Eco model.

Performance Engineering

The sophisticated powertrain of the 2017 Toyota Prius certainly represents the heart of the vehicle. However, a number of additional design choices come together to deliver agile driving dynamics and rock-bottom fuel-consumption rates across the roads of Daytona Beach and Palm Coast, including:

  • Double-Wishbone Rear Suspension: Enhances responsiveness while smoothing out your ride.

  • Increased Rigidity: Advanced materials and innovative construction techniques have upgraded rigidity, improving handling and braking performance in the process.

  • Flawless Aerodynamics: The sleek and striking Prius spent hour after hour in the wind tunnel to ensure that it slips through the wind gracefully. Sweeping lines, an active air shutter, aero stabilizing fins, and underbody panels all combine to help make that happen.
