Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Nissan 370Z, drivers may find the Toyota Prius Prime 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 Nissan 370Z will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Prius Prime, 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. In this case, the Nissan 370Z will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Prius Prime.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan 370Z is much wider than the Toyota Prius Prime, 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 Prime.

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 Prime.

Handling
The Nissan 370Z has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Prius Prime, allowing equal maneuverability 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 Prime. 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 Prime.

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