These days, there are even more hybrid vehicles to choose from, opening up possibilities for those who want to save money on gas. Still, the Toyota Prius remains one of the most popular, fuel-efficient, and accessible models on the market, and the 2016 Toyota Prius has been fully redesigned.

If you’re looking for an alternative, you might check out a model like the 2016 Honda CR-Z. Upon closer inspection, though, you’ll see the CR-Z has its strong points but fails to live up to the high standards of the latest Prius. See how they compare before making your way to Earl Stewart Toyota.

Fuel Economy

Most people looking for a hybrid vehicle want to save more money on gas. Here, the 2016 Toyota Prius obviously beats out the competition. The Prius comes standard with a 1.8L inline-four mated to a pair of electric motors and a hybrid battery pack. On normal versions, this system achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 54 mpg city and 50 mpg highway, while the increased focus on efficiency helps the Prius Two Eco achieve an astounding EPA-estimated 58 mpg city and 53 mpg highway.

The 2016 Honda CR-Z comes with a 1.5L four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and a hybrid battery pack. Its fuel economy numbers don’t come close to the Prius, though, at only 31 mpg city and 38 mpg highway with a six-speed manual or 36 mpg city and 39 mpg highway with a continuously variable transmission.

Passenger and Cargo Space

If you need more room for your friends and family, or if you want extra room to haul your gear, then the 2016 Toyota Prius will be a better choice. The Prius is a four-door compact hatchback with seating for up to five passengers. Total interior volume for the Toyota Prius hybrid measures at a sizable 117.7 cubic feet. You’ll also have 24.6 cubic feet to work with in back, as well as the ability to fold down the rear seats to open up even more room for storage.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Honda CR-Z is a small tow-door coupe that can only seat two people. In fact, the interior only measures 74.2 cubic feet. Behind the seats, there’s 25.1 cubic feet for, but you won’t have the option for more room because there are no rear seats in the Honda CR-Z.
