About Toyota Prius c
Toyota's 2016 Prius C is the company's smallest and least expensive hybrid car. In return for sacrificing some room and power, the Prius C rewards its owner with a price tag starting under $21,000 and EPA estimates of 53 mpg in the city and 46 mpg highway. The Prius C can cruise for short distances solely on electric power and offers room for five. With VW's Golf TDI temporarily off the market, the only cars that come close to the Prius C's highway fuel economy are the sporty little Ford Fiesta SFE, Mitsubishi Mirage and Toyota Corolla LE. Of course, none of these cars offer a hybrid powertrain, and none come close to the Prius C's impressive city fuel economy.
