2017 Toyota Prius Introduction

After a redesign for the 2016 model year, including a new engine and styling, the 2017 Toyota Prius comes with more standard equipment.

Even the base model includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and active lane control. It all comes in a package called Toyota Safety Sense-P.

The powerplant remains an efficient 1.8-liter four cylinder mated to an electric motor and making a combined 121 horsepower.

The standard battery pack is an older-tech nickel-metal hydride. Upper models use a lithium-ion battery pack.

The Prius runs the board with Good scores from the IIHS, earning the Top Safety Pick+ designation.

It’s the most efficient vehicle on the road without an electric plug, getting an EPA-rated 50/54 mpg City/Highway, 52 mpg Combined. The Two Eco model gets even more, with 53/58/56 mpg. That’s a 10 percent improvement over the previous generation. And there’s a Prius that’s more efficient, a plug-in called Prius Prime that can go 22 miles on all-electric power. We review it separately.
