The all- Toyota Prius C is like the Prius, only cuter. It has the same powerful Hybrid Synergy Drive as its older namesake, but it is considerably smaller, easier to handle, and less expensive. In other words, the Prius C is for you! It may be Toyota's most affordable hybrid model, but it's still a Toyota! New for 2016 is the Toyota Safety Sense-C system, as well as fresh eye-popping colors and a Prius C Special Edition Persona Series limited to 1,500 cars. Remember, the Prius C is not just another variation of the world-famous Prius, it's a completely new compact roadster with a surprisingly roomy interior and an EPA rating of an astonishing 53 MPG in the city. It looks more like a high-end European sports car than a green vehicle, and you have to drive one to experience its unbelievable get-up-and-go. Here at Venice Toyota, 900 US HWY 41 Bypass S in Venice, FL, we just received a large selection of 2016 Prius Cs, and you should drop in early for the best choice of trim packages and dramatic accessories. We invite all our neighbors in Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, North Port, and Port Charlotte, FL, to come to Toyota of Venice for a sneak peek at the newest member of the revered Prius family and the C.
You will quickly forget about the Prius C's tiny carbon footprint and life-affirming Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) certification as it zips you around the city. The C in Prius C stands for city, and no other compact in the world can claim such fuel economy and park on a dime. It really is ideal for the city, with a minuscule turning radius and powerful acceleration, but it's so economical to drive you'll want to make it your road-trip buddy. Don't worry, you can take the Prius C out of the city and way out of the city! The heart of the Prius C's fuel efficiency is the intelligent combination of two dynamic power sources, a 1.5L gasoline engine and a 60 hp electric motor. Together they produce 99 hp of pure energy to take your Prius C to new heights, while emitting virtually no smog-producing chemicals. To further reduce your fuel consumption, the 2016 Prius C gives you a choice of two different driving modes: ECO mode (the default setting) for optimum gas and electric power synergy, or the EV (electric vehicle) mode for short bursts of battery-only electric cruising. A test drive in the new Prius C will be the most fuel-efficient excursion you have ever taken.
Here's a fun trick to play on your friends. Tell them the C in the nameplate stands for Custom and they will think you paid a bundle for a deluxe Prius. They will never guess the Prius C is actually a budget model. If you buy your adorable Prius C at Venice Toyota, you will save even more money and enough to spring for some of these tasty options:
The great news for car buyers this years is that every Prius C is equipped with Toyota's groundbreaking Safety Sense C System (TSS-C) which wraps the occupants in a bubble of protection. A few short years ago, such life-saving technology was a very expensive option on high-end luxury sedans. Today it comes standard in the humble Prius C. It combines Lane Departure Alert, Auto High Beams, and a Pre-Collision System to minimize the chance of having an accident, and it makes the new Prius C one of the safest small cars on the market. Even the nine standard airbags deploy in stages, to avoid airbag injuries. As far as safety goes, the Prius C has you covered from all angles.
