Toyota Prius has been ranked number four among mid-size hatchbacks because of its exceptionally thrifty drivetrain, all-wheel driving facility, well-equipped cabin, and reasonable price as compared to its competitors.
Power Train & Performance of Toyota Prius:
All trims are powered by 1.8 liters inline four-cylinder DOHC sixteen valve engine which is paired with an electric motor and 3.6 amp lithium-ion battery pack producing 97 horse power @ 5200 rpm with maximum torque of 142 nm @ 4000 Rpm. Handling of Prius is very accurate despite its heavy steering control while the friction braking system in Prius makes it well efficient to control with the additional help of the resistance tires that can hold on the car even for longer braking distance.
All-wheel driving powers the rear wheels of Prius by deriving energy from the electric motor and assisting in off-road adventures while the acceleration of Prius is not very thrilling as well as not underwhelming. The alpha model has an advantage in its fuel economy as compared to its previous model and the Eco mode will offer a mileage of fifty-eight miles per gallon in the city and fifty-three miles per gallon on highways. All-wheel drive trims earn up to fifty-two miles per gallon in the city and forty-eight miles per gallon on highways.
Exterior Design & Features:
The biggest challenge in Prius was to bring changes in its exterior design which was below average with a basic egg shape but now Prius has added a busier snout with a length of 180 inches, a width of 69.3 inches, and a height of 57.9 inches having a ground clearance of 5.1 inches. The front end of the Prius is now less boxy with bi-LED headlights having auto adjustable low and high beam lights sweeping on the sides of the frontal fascia with a chrome grille in the center. Rear-end is still unattractive but it features rain-sensing windshield wipers and LED taillights. Seventeen inches five-spoke alloy wheels with titanium finishing add more beauty to their looks and last but not least the power tilting moon roof enlightens the cabin more brightly.
