2015 Nissan 370Z vs. 2015 Toyota Prius Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan 370Z and the Toyota Prius in the front seats.

Convenience
The Toyota Prius requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Nissan 370Z, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Nissan 370Z will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Prius, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan 370Z and the Toyota Prius have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan 370Z is much wider than the Toyota Prius, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Nissan 370Z, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Prius.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan 370Z does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius.

Handling
The Nissan 370Z has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Prius, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan 370Z has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Nissan 370Z seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Prius.

Warranty
The Nissan 370Z comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius.
