It’s no accident that the Toyota Prius has dominated the hybrid segment for the last fifteen years, and it’s no wonder that the 2015 Toyota Prius is doing the same here in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Jupiter. From its accessible pricing and groundbreaking fuel economy to its abundant safety features and adaptable trim levels, the Prius continues to impress. Of course, the Prius is no longer the sole competitor in this segment, and some buyers may be looking to the 2015 Ford C-Max Hybrid. When we take a closer look, though, the 2015 Toyota Prius continues to prove itself as the bedrock of the hybrid segment.

Fuel Economy

When you’re in the market for a hybrid, it seems more than reasonable that you’d put fuel economy at the top of your list. In this area, the 2015 Toyota Prius blows the 2015 Ford C-Max Hybrid out of the water. Using a combination of a traditional combustion 1.8L inline-four and a pair of electric motors, the Prius is able to get a very impressive EPA-estimated 51 mpg highway and 48 mpg city.

The C-Max Hybrid and its 2.0L four-cylinder engine and single electric motor only gets a disappointing EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway and 37 mpg city. That could cost you thousands more in fuel than the Prius over the course of several years.

Safety Features

Both of these models come generously equipped with a number of safety features, including standard antilock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, and a number of airbags including front knee airbags for added safety. However, the 2015 Toyota Prius offers up more standard and advanced safety tech. Every version of the Prius gets a standard rearview camera, while the Advanced Technology package includes a frontal-collision warning and lane-departure warning. The Ford C-Max Hybrid doesn’t come standard with a rearview camera, and a frontal-collision warning and lane-departure warning isn’t even available.
