2016 Toyota Prius vs. 2016 Chevrolet Volt
The 2016 Toyota Prius and the 2016 Chevrolet Volt are both examples of just how far hybrid cars have come.

The 2016 Toyota Prius is available now at Earl Stewart Toyota. Find out how it compares to the Volt before you visit us from West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, or Jupiter.
The huge difference in price between these two cars should be a big factor in which you pick.
- 2016 Toyota Prius Two: MSRP from $24,200*
- 2016 Chevrolet Volt LT: MSRP starting at $33,170
These are both considered gas/electric hybrids, but they use their powertrains in very different ways. The 2016 Toyota Prius generates its own electric power and requires nothing more than occasional gas fills. When running on gas and electric power together, fuel efficiency is rated at 54 mpg city and 50 mpg highway. Meanwhile, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt requires gas trips, as well, but it also must be plugged into an outlet for up to 13 hours to charge the electric batteries. When running on gas and electric power together, fuel efficiency is rated at only 43 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.
The appeal of a hatchback is that it gives you plenty of cargo room without forcing you to drive a big, bulky vehicle. The dedicated cargo area in the 2016 Toyota Prius holds 24.6 cubic feet, while the 2016 Chevrolet Volt’s trunk measures just 10.6 cubic feet.
The comfort, safety, technology, and convenience features that come with your car are what really define the quality of the traveling experience. With the 2016 Toyota Prius, you can choose from six different trim levels to be sure you get the features you want and aren’t paying for the ones you don’t. Features exclusive to the 2016 Toyota Prius include full-speed adaptive cruise control, standard navigation on higher trims, a power driver’s seat, a sunroof, and a 10-speaker stereo.
With only two trims to choose from on the 2016 Chevrolet Volt, you’re forced to either stretch your budget or settle. There are a few features exclusive to the Volt, but none that elevates the luxury, utility, or security of the vehicle beyond the Prius.
