2011 Toyota Prius Overview

The top-selling hybrid on the market by a landslide has been the Toyota Prius, and the new 2011 Toyota Prius looks to keep that streak going by offering advanced technology and unparalleled fuel economy.

Power comes from a hybrid drivetrain that includes a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor powered by a Ni-MH battery pack, combining to output 134-horsepower.  The Prius incorporates many high-tech tricks into its engine, including an electric water pump, exhaust gas recovery, and regenerative braking, all in the name of efficiency.  The only available transmission is a 2-speed CVT with overdrive.

Where the rubber meets the road in the 2011 Prius, is of course its impressive fuel economy.  Many factors contribute to the Prius’ remarkable mpg numbers, even down to its distinct shape which is designed to be as aerodynamic as possible.  It clocks in at a whopping 51 mpg in the city, and 48 mpg on the highway, which dwarfs the numbers from its only real competitor, the Honda Insight.  The Prius can be engaged in three driving modes: EV, which operates only on battery power as much as possible, Eco, and Power.

On the outside, the Prius keeps the same visual cues that make it stand out on the road, such as the split rear window, wedge-shaped body, and blue tinted badges that allude to its hybrid nature.  15-inch wheels are standard, and larger 17-inch cogs are optional.  The rear LED taillamps are standard and use less energy than conventional lamps.

Inside, the Prius offers surprisingly roomy seating for up to five passengers.  The floating dash has a futuristic look and feel to it, missing a traditional gear lever and opting for a digital gear system instead.  The instrument panel has been moved to the top of the dashboard, and displays vital information like speed, battery charge amount, and fuel economy.

Standard features include premium amenities such as automatic climate control, Bluetooth®, auxiliary audio jack, and push button start.  Additional technology upgrades are optional and include a voice-activated, touch-screen navigation system, dynamic radar cruise control, and intelligent park assist which will guide your car into a space eliminating parallel parking hassles.

The Prius also includes a host of safety technologies, including seven airbags, all-disc antilock brakes, traction control, and an electronic stability system all standard. 

For unmatched fuel economy and a host of premium technical features, the 2011 Toyota Prius stands above the pack.
