By G. Chambers Williams III, Autos Correspondent - Thursday Jul 6, 2017
Toyota completely redesigned the regular Prius hybrid model for 2016, bringing the fourth generation of the trendsetting gasoline-electric vehicle.For this report, we tested the Advanced model, which came fully equipped except for two port-added items - paint protection film for an extra $395 and carpeted floor mats and a cargo mat for $224, bringing the total sticker price, including freight, to $34,604.Exclusive tech features different from the regular Prius include the available vertically oriented 11.6-inch multimedia touch screen and color head-up display.Safety features include Toyota Safety Sense, which consists of a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and automatic braking; lane departure alert with steering assist; full-speed dynamic radar cruise control with full-stop technology and automatic high beams.The Prime also has an exclusive "dual wave" rear window, as well as a full-width LED rear combination light panel following the contour of the spoiler and the double-wave window.The Prime is available in four regular exterior colors - Classic Silver Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Titanium Glow and Blue Magnetism (available only on Prius Prime); and two premium colors, Blizzard Pearl and Hypersonic Red.EV Auto Mode automatically chooses all-electric driving as much as possible, while the Hybrid mode turns the car into virtually the same configuration as the regular Prius, running primarily on the gasoline engine with boost from the electric motor.The standard Prius hybrid and the Prius Prime come with the same Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain, using a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine combined with an electric motor, connected to a continuously variable transmission.Besides the Prime and the regular Prius Liftback, Toyota offers a smaller hatchback version called the Prius C, whose prices for 2017 range from $20,150-$24,965; and the larger Prius V hatchback crossover, whose 2017 prices go from $26,675-$30,935.Midsize, five-door, five-passenger, four-cylinder, front-wheel drive, gasoline-electric/battery powered, plug-in hybrid hatchbackENGINES: 1.8-liter inline Atkinson cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine combined with an electric motor
