“If fuel economy is a priority when you’re shopping for a new car, you can’t do much better than the 2017 Toyota Prius. It delivers some of the best mileage of any car on the road.”

The Toyota Prius has always been fuel-efficient, but its efficiency has recently been taken to a higher level. The 1.8L four-cylinder engine and dual electric motor hybrid powertrain produces a capable 121 hp while still offering drivers an EPA-estimated 54 mpg city and 50 mpg highway on most models, not mention 58 mpg city and 53 mpg highway with the LE Eco!

“The Prius has more cargo space than nearly every compact car competitor.”

Don’t forget that the 2017 Toyota Prius also remains an incredibly practical option for individuals and families alike thanks to the versatile passenger and cargo setup. You can seat up to five passengers inside and enjoy 27.4 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space in back. Meanwhile, the 60/40-split folding rear seat opens up a lot more room for storage in a jiffy, giving you maximum flexibility without any of the hassle.
