2016 Toyota Prius C Janesville WI
The Toyota Prius family has grown to include three members, the smallest of which is the Prius c—a compact hybrid hatchback. Compared to the Prius V, the c is categorized as sub-compact while the Prius V is midsize and can be thought of more along the lines of a hybrid station wagon.
Just this past year, the Prius c design was revisited, improving upon the front and rear stylings of this attractive little hatchback. In total, there are four trim levels which are easy to keep track of because they are named One through Four. The Prius c is the perfect pick for drivers who are looking for something eco-friendly and easy-to-handle. Parallel parking will be a breeze and you won’t have to white-knuckle down skinny streets with closely parked cars.
Drivers in urban settings who are faced with congested traffic or the difficulty of navigating narrow city streets will greatly appreciate the size of the Prius c. Agile with excellent roadside manners, the Prius c is able to switch between EV and ECO models. When in EV mode, the Prius c strictly runs on battery power for up to one half mile, while ECO mode is designed to adjust throttle response and operation of climate control in order to maximize fuel economy.
