Prius vs. the Competition -- How Toyota Sets the Bar for the Hybrid Hatchback

You can't beat the winning combination of efficiency, versatility, and affordability -- which is why you can't beat the Toyota Prius.

This hybrid hatchback sets the standard for its segment with remarkable fuel economy, industry-leading reliability, and a uniquely spacious design. Did you know that 95 percent of all Prius models sold since 2005 are still on the road today? And that the 2017 Prius earned an NHTSA five-star overall safety rating? Add to those accolades standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) driver assistance technologies and the ToyotaCare no-cost maintenance plan, and the Prius really has you covered in a way that other hybrid hatchbacks don't.

The mid-range Prius Three is the sweet spot between the just essentials and lavish accoutrements. It comes well-equipped with premium features like a wireless charging pad and touchscreen infotainment with navigation and smartphone app integration. You can how Chevrolet Volt, Hyundai Sonata, and Ford C-MAX rivals fare against the well-rounded Prius Three via the comparison below:
