While the 2016 Toyota Prius received a redesign for the model year, one aspect that stays just as impressive as ever is its fuel economy. Because of its striking new look, it’s more aerodynamic than ever with its sleek lines, active grille shutter, and underbody panels all working to give you excellent efficiency. The result? An EPA-estimated 58 MPG city1 from the 1.8L 4-cylinder engine and the pair of electric motors. Not only will you save on fuel, you’ll also be doing your part to lower CO2 emissions.

The inside of the 2016 Toyota Prius for sale near Plainfield, IL, is spacious and full of convenience. Fold down the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats for a 65.5 cubic ft. of cargo space2, or leave them in place for 27.4 cubic ft. behind the rear seats2. Up front, the large center console has a removable utility tray and has been reshaped for more space, and the heated front seats help you beat those harsh Midwest winter months. You and your passengers also won’t be bothered by excess road and wind noise, because the Prius uses sound-deadening techniques to keep these noises from entering your cabin.


There’s technology everywhere you look inside the 2016 Prius. You’ll stay informed with the 4.2-inch high-resolution Multi-Information Display (MID), showing a quick glance of driving data, ECO savings, and more. Just above awaits the new color Head-Up Display (HUD), projecting important information, like available turn-by-turn directions3, onto the windshield so your eyes can stay on the road ahead. On the 6.1-inch or 7-inch touchscreen features the Entune™ Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation3 and App Suite4. You’ll easily stay connected with apps like OpenTable® and Pandora®5, and always find your way back home with turn-by-turn directions and traffic updates. You can also have a cabin free of wires and cords thanks to the available Qi-compatible wireless charging station6 for your smartphone on its own nonslip surface. 

Beyond keeping you connected, the Toyota Prius also has technology to keep you safe. The standard backup camera7 assists when reversing out of parking spaces. The available Blind Spot Monitor8 ensures you’re aware of vehicles around you when changing lanes. The available rain-sensing variable windshield wipers adjust to the amount of rain hitting the windshield, and the speed you’re traveling. And the available Lane Departure Warning9 works to keep you in your desired lane as it lets you know when it senses unintentional drift.

It all started 15 years ago with the release of the first Toyota Prius. Now, with over 1.8 million sold, the 2016 Toyota Prius for sale near Plainfield, IL, is completely restyled and better than ever.
