The Hybrid Car that Won't Back Down: The 2016 Toyota Prius is Sportier and Sleeker than Ever Before
When the first Toyota Prius hit the automotive industry, it was considered by many to be somewhat of an oddity. However, now in its fourth-generation, the 2016 Toyota Prius is sleeker, sportier, and better equipped than ever before.
Perhaps most noticeable when comparing the current Prius with previous models is its modern new aesthetic. Styled to look quite unlike anything else you will see out there on the streets of Annapolis, MD, it is very unlikely that the new Prius will be mistaken for any other kind of car. Its head- and tail-lights are truly idiosyncratic, the lower nose exudes a hunkered down, aggressive road presence, and though it is still a five-door hatchback, the new Prius has a much sharper profile thanks to the back black panel which creates a floating roof effect.
And while its exterior design has taken a far more unconventional turn, with the new Prius, the esteemed Japanese automaker sought to deliver a more traditional and engaging driving dynamic. The Prius is not only more efficient than ever before, but its driving manners are far more akin to that of a solely gas-powered automobile. Prius drivers will notice more confidence when corning, as well as a quieter yet less detached motoring feel.
There is a reason that the Toyota Prius holds its throne as an automotive icon. Visit our showroom here at Koons Annapolis Toyota to see the fourth-gen Prius for yourself and to take it out for an expectation shattering test drive.
