The Prius Prime Plug-In Hybrid vs Other Brand Plug-In Models

The original Prius hybrid has been the go-to source forPortsmouth, NH drivers looking for a hybrid and efficient car since 1997. After two decades as the industry leader in hybrid technology with the beloved Toyota Prius, our favorite carmaker introduced a new version of our old friend in 2016, when they gave us the plug-in, rechargeable model - the Toyota Prius Prime. Other carmakers have since released plug-in hybrid cars that compete with the Prius Prime, but they can't match the original for smooth ride and genuine Toyota reliability and quality.

Compared next to other plug-in models, the Prius Prime has the best fuel economy ratings than the competition. Our Prius Prime is rated for 55 mpg in the city, 53 mpg on the highway, and a combined 54 mpg. Meanwhile, looking at just a handful of competitors, for example, the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In averages just 52 mpg combined, the Kia Niro Plug-In gets 46 mpg combined, and the Volvo S60 plug-in T8 gets 30 mpg combined.

While Prius Prime, Kia Niro, Hyundai Ioniq, and Volvo S60 are all compact cars that seat five people, the Prius model gives you, and your passengers, more space to stretch out. In fact, our Toyota model gives Hampton, NH drivers more legroom in the front seat than all three competing models that we looked at, and more headroom than most.

Have cargo you want to take with you when you hit the road in Exeter? The Prius Prime can help. It has a flexible, hatchback-style cargo hold that is useful and accommodating. It's also more spacious than the competing plug-in hybrids, especially the Volvo S60, whose trunk holds just 11.6 cubic feet, while the Prius Prime can hold more than 19 cubic feet.
