Advanced, Exciting, and Sophisticated: the 2016 Prius


These days, it’s hard to imagine a world without the Toyota Prius. Since setting a new Hybrid standard almost 20 years ago, its innovation, efficiency, and cutting-edge attitude have changed the way we think about driving dynamics – for the better. Now in its fourth generation, the 2016 Toyota Prius for sale near Orland Park, IL, is here – and it’s ready to set a standard all its own. Check it out today at Thomas Toyota. 

The Prius’ design has always been focused on aerodynamic sophistication, but the 2016 model takes it up a notch with a reimagined silhouette and enhanced exterior features. Active grille shutters have been added, which combine with 2.4 inches of additional body length and a lower center of gravity to exude athletic aggression at every turn. Striking 17-inch alloy wheels are available, as well as a brand-new Hypersonic Red color profile to help the 2016 Prius get noticed. Further exterior enhancements include sculpted body lines, Bi-LED headlights, a redesigned rear spoiler, and exclusive LED taillights. 

On the inside, the 2016 Toyota Prius for sale near Orland Park, IL, is packed with a number of exciting upgrades, comforts, and conveniences. Its wraparound, easily-accessible instrument panel and dashboard keep everything you need within easy reach, and handy features like push-button start, automatic climate control, and available memory settings help make every drive more intuitive. The overall cabin environment of the 2016 Prius is unlike any other, featuring premium design accents, remarkable craftsmanship, new seats, and an increase in overall spaciousness over the outgoing model. Additional interior upgrades include a new color head-up display, dual 4.2-inch multi-information display screens, and a multi-function center console.


Interior innovations certainly enhance the driving experience in the 2016 Prius, but where it truly excels is under the hood. The all-new Prius is the first global vehicle to utilize Toyota’s New Global Architecture chassis, which improves both aerodynamics and handling. A redesigned and responsive suspension package is also new for 2016, as well as either a nickel-metal hydride battery or lithium-ion battery to deliver power-packed performance. A revised 1.8-liter engine boasts an improved thermal efficiency of 40 percent, and thanks to the Prius’ overall engineering and aerodynamics, the 2016 model achieves a 0.24 coefficient of drag – lower than even the Tesla Model S at 0.27 cd.
