If you’re on the lookout for an unbeatable hybrid car, check out a used 2016 Toyota Prius II.
The 1.8-liter four cylinder under the hood works in tandem with the magnet AC electric motor to produce a combined 121 hp and 120 pound-feet of torque. Car and Driver says that the 2016 model comes with an upgraded engine, which now includes a cooled exhaust-gas-recirculation system, along with increased combustion.
Consumers will expect a stellar EPA rating from the Prius and that’s exactly what they’ll get. With a fuel economy of 54 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on the highway, you may forget the location of your neighborhood gas station.
Once you get behind the wheel, the first thing you’ll notice is the excellent visibility provided by the Prius II. This, partnered with the responsive steering, gives you the confidence you need to maneuver through high-speed or congested traffic. Also noteworthy is the rear suspension, which significantly improves handling, allowing more distinct turns.
