2016 Nissan 370Z vs. 2015 Toyota Prius Plug-in Review

Comparison Review

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

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 Plug-in, 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 Plug-in have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan 370Z is much wider than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, 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 Plug-in.

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 Plug-in.

Handling
The Nissan 370Z has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, 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 Plug-in. 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 Plug-in.

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