With its accessible and enjoyable handling, and of course its incredible fuel economy, the 2017 Toyota Prius gives the greater Atlanta area a car that is incredibly well-suited to both the highway and the city. Stylish on the outside and smart on the inside, the Prius is not to be missed — regardless of your style. See for yourself how impressive the Prius is at Marietta Toyota, and take a look at this side-by-side comparison with the 2017 Chevrolet Volt

How Each Vehicle Performs

Sitting comfortably on 17-inch wheels and featuring a 106.3-inch wheelbase, the new Toyota Prius balances comfort with precision. Its size allows it to turn tightly and handle with incredible precision. But, it’s still big enough to offer a smooth and graceful ride. Similarly, its 1.8L 4-cylinder DOHC hybrid engine emits a comfortable 121 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of available torque, which makes for an enjoyable and capable ride. It also still delivers unbeatable fuel economy. Its hybrid system gets an estimated 58 mpg city*, which makes it clear why the Prius name has come to represent stunning efficiency.

The 2017 Chevrolet Volt does offer stiff competition, however. Sporting a 1.5L direct-injection engine and Voltec electric drive unit, the Volt offers a fully electric range that makes it perfect for short drives. But with a small engine and fuel tank, the Volt only tops out at 43 mpg city and it has a maximum range of 420 miles. That is quite impressive, but it cannot match the range of the Prius, which exceeds 600 miles. However, the Volt does feature a nearly identical wheelbase and a similar suspension. But while the Volt offers similarly capable handling, it cannot match the Prius’ overall experience.
