2016 Toyota Prius 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 Toyota Prius, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, the Toyota Prius may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota Prius will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Toyota Prius and the Toyota Prius Plug-in have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Toyota Prius is about the same width as the Toyota Prius Plug-in. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Prius takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Prius Plug-in.

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

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

Performance
The Toyota Prius has less horsepower than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

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