Driving Dynamics

“Thanks to the new architecture that includes the independent rear suspension, the 2017 Prius Prime has a solid feel and crisp handling.” – Kelley Blue Book

Drivers expect first-class mileage ratings from the Prius Prime, but many are left stunned by just how well the vehicle performs.

Riding on Toyota’s all-new Global Architecture for a 60% increase in torsional rigidity, the Prime’s low slung-body and revised suspension produce outstanding driving dynamics—with all of this, you’ll be able to zip from zero to 60mph in around 10 seconds. Small wonder Kelley Blue Book named it Top Electric/Hybrid Car in their latest Best Buy Awards.


“Inside, the news is the giant 11.6-inch, vertically oriented high-resolution touchscreen.” – Car and Driver

Reviews of the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime were just as admiring of its interior features as its groundbreaking powertrain. The 11.6-inch tablet-style touchscreen certainly drew plenty of attention to itself, but other top of the line tech features include a Color Heads-Up Display, Entune App Suite, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection.
