With four models available for the 2017 model year, car shoppers interested in the Toyota Prius model lineup have more options than ever. With the expansion of the lineup, some car shoppers have become confused with the differences between each hybrid vehicle offered. Let’s break down the differences between the 2017 Toyota Prius vs Prius Prime vs Prius v vs Prius c below.
The 2017 Toyota Prius is the most up-to-date version of the Toyota hybrid we all know and love. It is joined by the Prius Prime which is the plug-in version of the Prius. When fully charged the 2017 Prius Prime can support around 25 miles of electric-only driving. The Prius Prime also runs like a traditional Prius if not charged. The Prius v is a Prius model designed for people who need more cargo space availability. Toyota has extended the back of the traditional Prius to offer owners approximately 10 cubic feet more of cargo space in the 2017 Prius v. The Prius c is designed for anyone who needs a car with a smaller footprint. At 19 inched shorter than the traditional Prius the 2017 Prius c makes city driving, and especially city parking, a breeze.
