While there was a time when drivers had only one option for Toyota quality in an affordable hybrid. Enter the Toyota Prius c. As the smaller sibling of the original Toyota Prius, the c line was designed as a more affordable option with the tighter streets of downtowns in mind. Explore below the full range of differences in this Envision Motors guide of the Toyota Prius vs. Toyota Prius c, then explore our new and pre-owned inventory for a closer look.

Compare the Performance of the Toyota Prius vs. Toyota Prius c

While both the Prius and Prius c offer impressive fuel efficiency, there are some notable differences that create unique driving experiences on all of your commutes. See below how these two stack up:

  • A double -wishbone style multi-link rear suspension system improves handling and a body rigidity that improves your braking performance in the traditional Prius. Combine that with touring-tuned suspension, and a stylish, efficient rear spoiler to bring performance and panache to all your trips. With the 2020 model, a 1.8L 4-cylinder hybrid engine achieves an impressive 54 / 50 / 52 (mpg city / highway / combined).
  • Compared to the Prius, the Prius c line provides a substantial and highly efficient 73 hp 1.5L 4-cylinder hybrid engine that achieves 48 / 43 / 46 (mpg city / highway / combined). This eco-size footprint offers a light environmental impact with the ability to maneuver through tight spaces and get you to where you need to go.

Interior and Safety Features & Technology

Over the years, the Toyota Prius has managed to turn interior comfort green with an advanced cabin and a small carbon footprint. Both the Toyota Prius and Toyota Prius c give you innovation that doesn’t take your last penny, like available 11.6-in touchscreen displays, Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging systems, and in the original Prius, front bucket seats. In the Prius c, you’ll have Bluetooth® connectivity and an Integrated Navigation and App suite, as well as plenty of genuine parts and accessories available for a personal touch, whether you want weather proofing tools or a Prius battery replacement. When it comes to safety, in both the Prius and the Prius line, you’ll have all the latest safety technology to keep you and your family secure, while the rest of the cabin keeps you at the height of comfort, including: standard pre-collision systems with Pedestrian Detection, standard Lane Departure Alert, and in the traditional Prius, the highly innovative Dynamic Cruise Control allows you to set not just your speed, but also your distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, gently accelerating back up to speed or decelerating as need arises.

Eco Tech in the Toyota Prius vs. Toyota Prius c

Thanks to an aerodynamic exterior, the Prius shows off on any street or highway. And with the Hybrid Synergy Drive®, and CO2-saving innovations, you’ll be able to help protect the environment and reap the benefits of tremendous fuel economy gains that few hybrids on the road are capable of matching. In a very similar line of design, the stylish and petite Prius c offers additional advanced eco technologies, including EV/ECO mode that enables electric driving for up to one-half mile, as well as a SULEV rating (Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle), and an energy monitor that works in real-time to save you money.
