From the tip of its striking front end to the end of its spacious body, the 2017 Toyota Prius delivers the efficient car experience Atlanta area drivers deserve. Though the Prius does boast a stylish exterior, it’s more than a pretty face; under its hood rests a marvel of hybrid technology, and it continues to earn attention for its incredible fuel efficiency. Compare the Prius side-by-side with its competitor, the 2016 Nissan Leaf, and see for yourself how impressive the all-new Toyota Prius is when you try it at Marietta Toyota.


The new 2017 Toyota Prius delivers 121 net horsepower with its 1.8L 4-cylinder 16-valve DOHC hybrid engine. This puts it at a significant advantage over the 2016 Nissan Leaf, which can only reach 107 horsepower with its 80 kW AC synchronous motor. The Leaf tries to make up for its shortcomings with an overall city range of 126 miles, but it cannot begin to compare to the 655 mile city range of the hybrid Prius. Both vehicles, however, do feature identical 106.3-inch wheelbases, which means that both are sized to offer tight and precise turning. Though, only the Toyota Prius features a double-wishbone rear suspension, making it more equipped to offer drivers an intuitive and responsive ride.

What’s more, the Prius comes equipped with an incredible number of active safety features — including a pre-collision system, lane departure alert, and dynamic radar cruise control — which the Leaf does not possess. This means that the Prius also promises drivers the safer ride of the two vehicles.
