The all-new Toyota Prius is the most fuel-efficient car in the world (without a plug), and it has been restyled for 2016 with a more streamlined body and scooped-out side contours along the back end. The Prius is losing its wedge, but not its edge. So why aren't you driving a hot new Prius?
You don't have to travel very far for a close-up look at Toyota's flagship hybrid sedan. Toyota of Longview, located at 14 W Loop 281 in Longview, TX, just received a nice selection of 2016 Prius sedans in many different trim packages. We can confidently tell you that the plural of Prius is Prii. While the plural form of Prius may seem insignificant to you, we have seen many of our customers from Tyler, Kilgore, Marshall, Carthage and beyond, buy a sleek new Prius. But they like the high-performance, low-emission midsize sedan so much, they buy another. One family from Tyler, whom we have known for years, is presently a 3-Prius family. So we assumed they had three Priuses, but Toyota recently polled its customers and determined that Prii is their preference. If you want to see many, many beautiful Prii at the same time, pop in to our Longview Toyota showroom for a game-changing test drive.
Do you remember the word "synergy" from high school science class? It occurs when two parts are combined to form something that is greater than the sum of its parts, namely 54 mpg* in the city and 50 mpg* on the highway. In the Prius, synergy is created by coupling a dynamic gas engine with an efficient electric motor to create some amazing acceleration and pep. A side benefit is near-zero emissions, so we can all breathe easier with the Prius' Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emission Vehicle certification. If you are still driving a gas guzzler, you are part of the problem. Prius is a big part of the solution. In a friendly jab at rival carmakers, Toyota lowered both the hood and the Prius badge this year, signifying its position as a player in the high-performance coupe sector. This also reduces drag to a co-efficiency of a mere 0.25, allowing it cheat the wind, and a whole lot of gas stations!
The 2016 Prius is a far cry from its former self, still sporting the iconic shape and athletic stance, but now updated for 2016 with a more dramatic grille, sportier hood and crescent-shaped headlights. Aside from the fresh accents and eye-candy appeal, the new Prius features many upgrades you can't see. First and foremost is Toyota's revolutionary TNGA body. As an acronym for Toyota New Global Architecture, this truly ingenious system translates into materials that are lighter, yet stronger, than anything else on the market. Some day all cars will be made this way, but today only the new Toyota Prius makes it affordable. Even when you dart off in your new Prius, people will take notice, due to the incredible LED taillights that may result in a rash of reported UFO sightings in the Longview area.
Yes, it's sophisticated, but the new Prius interior is also surprisingly homey and inviting. You and your companions will delight in the form-fitted seats that feel custom-made. The driver is treated to an eye-catching dashboard that wraps around the front seats in an ergonomic layout that keeps all the important controls handy. The Prius instrument panel has been widened for 2016 to accommodate the large inset display screen, and it offers the latest in Bluetooth® integration. The Prius is playful, and here are some of the available features you can play with:
