2017 Toyota Prius vs 2017 Chevy Volt

Modern technology has paved the way for some remarkable upgrades to the cars we drive. When the first Toyota Prius rolled onto American lots seventeen years ago, people lined up to test drive and fall in love with the Prius' impressive fuel economy, low MSRP, and quiet engine. Today the Toyota Prius has a handful of competitors from multiple manufacturers, including Chevrolet, a well-loved American brand. Chevy's 2017 Volt runs parallel to the 2017 Toyota Prius, but as with all competing vehicles they have important differences. Examining these vehicles side by side allows us to see where they are similar and where they are different, making for an easier decision when it's time to buy.

The hullaballoo surrounding the 2017 Chevy Volt centers on its ability to run on electricity only. While this is undeniably a neat feature, its practical usefulness isn't as significant as it's made out to be. Since the Volt requires special charging adaptions, distance driving and traveling away from major metropolitan areas that might supply these adaptations would very quickly make the electrical aspect of the Volt moot. Once that's out the window, the 2017 Chevy Volt begins to lag behind the 2017 Toyota Prius.

Sporting a combined MPG of 52 and a modest MSRP, the 2017 Toyota Prius offers a neatly packaged hybrid sedan with a refreshing touch of modern design. In addition to its affordability and the savings the 2017 Prius offers, it boasts the benefit of being a Toyota—by design, it has excellent safety features that come standard with every Toyota. If you're looking for a commute car, a family car, or a car for distance travel, the 2017 Prius can get you where you need to go on a remarkably small amount of gas and with a relaxed state of mind.
