Thanks to its EPA-estimated 53 mpg in the city, 15 Prius c makes sure the fun goes farther. And besides, gas stations always look better when you’re driving past them.
Know what’s cooler than one power source? Two of them. With our Hybrid Synergy Drive® you get a more efficient, more reliable combination of a gasoline engine and an electric motor. They work either independently or simultaneously, to move you in the most efficient way possible.
Gas or electric is up to you. With Prius c, you can select the driving mode you want. Under certain conditions, in EV Mode, Prius c runs solely on battery power. ECO Mode helps maximize fuel economy by limiting the operation of the climate control and adjusting the throttle response.
Prius c is rated as a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV), a designation indicating it produces fewer smog-forming emissions than an average gasoline-powered new vehicle.
Prius c was designed with the big city, and small parking spots, in mind. As the smallest and most affordable member of the Prius family, Prius c makes fitting into the city easier, and more fun, than ever.
Aerodynamically speaking, Prius c is pretty refined. Those bumps on the taillights? Those are vortex generators. They help improve straight-line control and overall efficiency by dictating airflow behavior around the vehicle.
Besides looking good, the rear spoiler on Prius c improves airflow dynamics around the back of the vehicle. It also adds another essential design element: awesomeness.
Get the information you need to maximize fuel economy. With the Multi-Information Display (MID), a color screen shows a variety of data – including cruising range, fuel economy, EV Driving Ratio, trip timer and outside temperature.
To help boost fuel economy, Prius c has an ECO Score display that rates how efficiently you are driving in three different categories—starting, cruising and stopping—and then gives you a score up to 100.
With four passenger doors and a rear liftgate, Prius c is an easy car to get into. The large rear liftgate to the cargo area makes it easy to take what you need along for the ride.
Trying to set a hypermiling record? You’ll want your eyes on the road. This available feature puts a duplicate image of steering wheel-mounted controls on the Multi-Information Display, so you know if you’re pressing the button you want.
Fumbling with keys is never a good look. When you're within a few feet of your Prius c with the available Smart Key, simply grasp the door handle to unlock the door. Plus, the engine starts with the push of a button.
