Prius C

The Prius family of vehicles have been setting standards and breaking barriers for decades, and the 2017 Toyota Prius C is no exception to this rule. The Prius Prime satisfies drivers who want a plug-in vehicle, and the Prius V provides additional space for growing families, but the Prius C is a great starter car for those who don’t need as much space and seek to save a little money. Check out some of the most exciting features of the Prius C and discover your reason to fall in love with this subcompact hybrid vehicle.

The 2017 Toyota Prius C is powered by a hybrid electric powertrain. It combines a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with two AC motor/generators that together can produce 99 horsepower and is paired with a continuous variable transmission. The new 15-inch aluminum alloy wheels paired with the compact shape of the vehicle and ample power make city driving a breeze. Plus with the hatchback body style, you have 17.1 cubic feet of cargo space that can be expanded with 40/60 split-folding rear seats so you can handle anything life throws at you.

From the driver’s seat, you’ll find all your controls within an easy arm’s reach. Maintain a comfortable temperature with automatic climate controls or turn those off and enjoy the night’s breeze with the available moonroof option.  The 6.1-inch high-resolution color display screen offers the Entune infotainment system, Bluetooth, and an available six-speaker audio system so you can create the atmosphere you want in your Prius with a simple touch of a button.

And new to this year’s model, all four trim levels come with added active safety tech features to give you more confidence on the road. The Toyota Safety Sense-C now includes automatic LED headlights for better visibility when you need it, lane departure alert to keep you on track at all times, as well as a Pre-Collision System which includes forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking to help you prevent accidents before they happen. Your safety comes first, Toyota saw to that.
