The 2016 Toyota Prius charges ahead of the Chevrolet Volt.
One thing that makes hybrid vehicles an attractive option over EVs is that they are affordable on most budgets, and the 2016 Prius will help you stretch your budget to its fullest. The Prius’ MSRP starts at $24,200, compared to the Chevy Volt which starts much higher at an MSRP of $25,670. And what about the higher trim levels? Even in the top-of-the-line Prius Three Touring you can find great value; the Prius Three Touring has an MSRP of $28,100. In the top-level Volt Premier, expect to pay a hefty $37,520 MSRP. The Toyota Prius also offers four trims, each with differing levels of features and amenities, which allow you to configure your vehicle to perfectly fit your budget without compromising. The Chevrolet Volt offers only two trims, so you can expect to sacrifice a lot of car to keep within your budget. The 2016 Prius comes out on top in this round.
Hybrid vehicles still run on gasoline, but it’s a much smaller amount than any other combustion-engine-only vehicle. The 2016 Prius is a master of gasoline efficiency, earning its drivers up to 58 mpg city and 53 mpg highway (that’s 56 mpg combined) in EPA estimations. On the other hand, the Chevrolet Volt can only muster 43 mpg city and 42 mpg highway (which makes for 42 mpg in combined driving) according to the EPA. The Prius also has a 11.8-gallon fuel tank compared to the Volt’s 8.9-gallon tank; looks like you will be seeing far more of the gas station if you choose the Volt. Prius wins the fuel fight hands down.
If you are thinking of upgrading your daily driver to a hybrid vehicle or if you are planning on upgrading your current hybrid to something with a little more ‘umph’ to it, then try the 2016 Toyota Prius on for size.
