The 2015 Toyota Prius is the car everyone thinks of when they think hybrid, and now there is a roomier Prius V that has more cargo space in the back too. Plaza Toyota in Brooklyn can take care of all your hybrid needs, whether they be a Prius, a Prius V, or the smaller Prius C, and we're easy to get to from most places in New York City.

The 2015 Chevy Volt is certainly an attractive entry in the hybrid market, but its advantages are just too limited to justify the price for most buyers.

Prius Price vs. Volt Price

The Chevrolet Volt has a starting price of $35,170, including destination charges, compared to the standard Prius which starts at just $25,025. The Prius C is even less expensive at just $20,365 while the Prius V is still affordable at $27,500. Even checking every option box on the Prius only gives it a list price of $30,830.

Prius Space vs. Volt Space

In order to provide its ability to go about 40 miles on a single charge, the Volt eats up a lot of cargo space with batteries. The Prius has more than 21 cubic feet of cargo space under its hatch, and the Prius V 34, compared to the 10.6 Volt has in its trunk. You can also fit 5 passengers in a Prius, unlike the strictly 2+2 seating in the Chevy Volt. Those rear seat passengers have more legroom and headroom in the Prius too.

Prius Fuel Economy vs. Volt Fuel Economy

The Volt uses no gas to travel about 40 miles if you can charge it every night, or while you are at work. If you are running the Volt with its onboard motor/generator, you will only be getting about 37 mpg. The standard Prius doesn't need to be plugged in, just push the button, and its powertrain delivers 51 mpg city and 48 highway, according to the EPA.

For a reliable, 5-passenger car that gets phenomenal mileage with no effort from you, just buy a 2015 Toyota Prius in any of its varieties. Plaza Toyota in Brooklyn, NY, has the whole Prius family ready for immediate delivery, and we're just a short trip from Queens.
