A high-quality hybrid vehicle can save you money on gas, and there are more options to choose from these days, though a couple of models continue to offer more for the money. The 2016 Toyota Prius has been fully redesigned this year, bringing more standard and available features alongside better fuel economy and performance. The 2016 Ford C-MAX Hybrid is another alternative energy vehicle that some shoppers in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, and Apopka have been considering. After seeing how these models compare, check out the all-new 2016 Toyota Prius at Earl Stewart Toyota in Lake Park, FL.

Fuel Economy

One of the primary reasons that people shop for a hybrid is because they’re looking to save money at the gas tank while partaking in a more sustainable transportation system. The 2016 Toyota Prius is quite a bit more fuel-efficient than the 2016 Ford C-MAX Hybrid. The 1.8L four-cylinder engine and dual electric motors on the Prius achieve up to an EPA-estimated 54 mpg city and 50 mpg highway with a standard setup, or up to 58 mpg city and 53 mpg city with the help of the Prius Two Eco’s ultralow-rolling-resistance tires, lighter hybrid battery pack, and lightweight inflation kit.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Ford C-MAX Hybrid’s 2.0L four-cylinder engine and electric motor combine to get significantly lower fuel economy, reaching 42 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, according to EPA estimates.


Whether you decide to go with the 2016 Toyota Prius or the 2016 Ford C-MAX Hybrid, you can look forward to standard Bluetooth, cruise control, an auxiliary input for your smartphone, and alloy wheels. Unlike the Ford model, though, the 2016 Toyota Prius also gets a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, a rearview camera, a smart key system, and a heated exterior mirror.


The standard configuration for the 2016 Toyota Prius is a small hatchback, but you can also purchase it as a subcompact hatchback or a large wagon. The 2016 Ford C-MAX Hybrid is only offered as a wagon, giving you fewer options.
