As more and more manufacturers enter the hybrid game, it may seem difficult to decipher between all of the makes and models, and what all they have to offer. Sure, every vehicle manufacturer claims to be efficient, but there are none quite like the Prius, because Toyota has had plenty of time to perfect its game and up the ante.
Toyota came out with a couple of new model Priuses, the C, the V and the Plug-in Electric. 2015 Toyota Prius C vs 2015 Toyota Prius V shows drivers that Toyota truly values their wants and needs, and works to provide options for every lifestyle.
The 2015 Toyota Prius c was created a bit smaller than the traditional Prius, and the V a bit larger. The 2015 Toyota Prius c was meant for city and urban driving where space and parking may be an issue, and the 2015 Toyota Prius V was meant to provide families with a little more legroom and cargo capacity. Both are still extremely efficient and offer drivers an affordable, efficient way to get around town, but it’s just a matter of how much extra space you want in your hybrid.
