The 2016 Toyota Prius is one of the most fuel-efficient sedans in the world that doesn't have a plug. If you want better efficiency, you will have to buy a horse - but then you will be down to one horsepower, and the upkeep will eat you out of house and home. So stick with the ecologically-conscious Prius because it's looking sportier than ever. We are Toyota of Southern Maryland, and we've been in the Prius business for almost two decades. We can honestly say we've never met a Prius we didn't like. Toyota didn't stop to rest on its laurels when the Prius hit the number one position in the hybrid market; it continues to forge ahead with improved performance and advanced styling, making the 2016 model the most impressive to date. See it for yourself when you visit our new car showroom, located at 22500 Three Notch Road in Lexington Park, MD. We serve Mechanicsville, Prince Frederick and all of Southern Maryland, so come and see us just as soon as you can.
2016 brings a complete makeover to the iconic car that spurred a hybrid revolution, starting with the revolutionary ultra-lightweight TNGA body, which improves aerodynamic efficiency, but also looks very futuristic. The Prius nose has been lowered, the tailbone raised, and a distinctive spoiler has been added. As well, the 2016 Toyota Prius is 2.4 inches longer, half an inch wider, and an inch lower than previous years. As a result, the Prius looks sleeker.
It's the thoughtful little touches that make the Prius irresistible, and 2016 has them, in abundance. For starters (literally), the Smart Key fob now does everything but shine your shoes. It can start your car and turn on the air conditioner or heater from 30 yards away. It unlocks your driver's door, turns on your interior lights, and readies the push-button ignition, all from inside your pocket or purse. And we're working on the shoe-shining app. The new HUD system projects all the info you need onto the windshield directly in front of you, and you will never have to take your eyes off the road again. Part of the HUD display is your Hybrid System Indicator, which keeps track of your driving habits and scores your Eco progress. For highway driving, the 2016 Prius incorporates an ingenious Dynamic Radar Cruise Control feature that uses microwave radar to automatically adjust your cruise control setting to the flow of traffic, and then brings you back up to cruising speed when the coast is clear. Is that a safety factor or a convenience feature? Both. Find out more about the new Prius' interior comforts and features from the sales professionals at Toyota of Southern Maryland.
Everyone knows that Toyota wrote the book on hybrid technology, but did you know that the first hybrid automobile, i.e. powered by both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, was invented by Henri Pieper in 1899? However, the technology was useless until the advent of the regenerative brake, which came about 75 years later. Regenerative brakes re-direct the tremendous power needed to stop the car back into the energy source, rather than just burn it off like common friction brakes, and they were the missing link in hybrid technology. Yesterday, hybrid power. Today, regenerative brakes. Tomorrow, perpetual motion cars? Woohoo! The 2016 Prius delivers an industry-busting 52 mpg* EPA combined highway and city rating, which is not good news for gas station owners. When you consider that 95 percent of all Prius sedans sold in the U.S. in the last decade are still on the road, it adds up to a lot of Priuses, but not a lot of pit stops. The famous Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive® has just earned the Prius another accolade. It's been certified as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emission Vehicle, one of the first in the world. Wherever you take the Prius, it's always on the cusp. In the 2016 Prius, you can switch between EV, ECO, or POWER modes for increased battery power, hybrid power or muscle power, respectively.
