Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius Prime than the Toyota 86, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Prius Prime will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota 86.

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). Whether you pick the Toyota 86 or the Toyota Prius Prime, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Toyota 86 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Prius Prime.

Dimensions
The Toyota 86 is about the same width as the Toyota Prius Prime. If you go with the Toyota 86, 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 Toyota 86 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius Prime.

Handling
The Toyota 86 has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius Prime, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Warranty
The Toyota 86 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius Prime.
