2016 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2015 Toyota Prius Plug-in Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius Plug-in than the Chevrolet Volt, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt, drivers may find the Toyota Prius Plug-in a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Volt is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius Plug-in. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Volt and the Toyota Prius Plug-in have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Volt is much wider than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Volt, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Prius Plug-in.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Volt and the Toyota Prius Plug-in do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chevrolet Volt and the Toyota Prius Plug-in.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Volt and the Toyota Prius Plug-in.
