Powertrain and Safety of the 2017 Toyota Prius

The new Prius comes with Toyota’s 1.8 liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, and it works like a traditional hybrid in the sense that it joins up with electric motors that also act as generators. All told, you benefit from 121hp, and a continuously variable transmission sends power to the front wheels. Of note is that when you apply the brakes, it helps to restore your battery power via one of the electric motor/generators. EPA fuel economy estimates are—as expected—outstanding. All trims turn in numbers of 54/50 miles per gallon, city/highway. You will also be pleased to learn that the Two Eco trim gets you figures of 58/53 mpg.

Safety features are great in number, as Toyota has always placed a premium on protective inclusions. Standard on all trims are the Star Safety System®, and with it you get enhanced vehicle stability control, airbags, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, and a fuel-saving smart/stop feature.

Impressive hybrid capability and economy are available in the 2017 Toyota Prius.

Additional Features and Model Details of the 2017 Toyota Prius

The 2017 Toyota Prius Model Information also highlights that you receive a tire pressure monitoring system, emergency braking assist, rear door child safety locks, and a handy vehicle proximity notification system. The latter feature is useful given the fact that hybrids at low speeds don’t make much noise, but you will be notified if another car is around you and the driver doesn’t see you.

The current generation of Prius vehicles follows suit with the older ones in that the trim levels are numerical in nomenclature. Starting with the One, the standard features include LED daytime running lights, air conditioning, heated outside mirrors, 15-inch wheels, and a six-speaker audio system with a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack and a CD player.

Choosing the Two variant will get you much of the same, but a rear window wiper is standard on this trim. Other features of note for both include a tilt & telescoping steering wheel, upper door trim with chrome accents, a hybrid-specific digital instrumentation panel, and full power accessories (locks, windows, etc).

Moving up to the Two Eco will get you a few extras that are designed to further enhance the already exceptional fuel economy of the Prius. Highlights include special low-resistance tires, a lighter battery, and a tire inflation kit. The latter helps to reduce the weight that would be an issue with a full-size spare tire.

Upper Trim Features of the 2017 Toyota Prius

The Three trim provides upgraded upholstery to go along with navigation, HD radio, satellite radio, and a convenient wireless phone charging pad. Four trims will get you a few extra safety features like blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, and you also get a few extra convenience items. Highlights include unique, trim-specific upholstery, heated front seats, a rear cargo cover, and additional storage compartments.

There is a Touring variant available when you choose the Three or Four trims with the 2017 Toyota Prius Model Information, and they come with larger alloy wheels, fog lights, LED clearance lights, and special exterior design elements.  When it comes to options, you have a few, depending on the trim level. For instance, you can go with the Advanced Technology Package if you choose the Three or Four trim. Included are features such as a sunroof and a head-up display. The latter feature is great for monitoring your vehicle speed and functionality without taking your eyes off the road.
