TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2016 Toyota Prius

2016 Toyota Prius Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2016 The new Toyota Prius's EPA ratings are the best of any car without a plug: 54 mpg city, 50 mpg highway. Well, almost. That honor specifically goes to the Prius Two Eco, the variant I tested. With more battery-powered range, some aerodynamic enhancements, and a slightly lower curb weight, the Prius Two Eco scores 58/53. The Ford C-MAX's EPA ratings aren't in the same league: 42/37. When running on gasoline, the Chevrolet Volt doesn't test as well as the Prius: 42/43. But you can plug in the Volt for about 50 miles of electric-only range. The new Honda Civic, among the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid compacts, manages 31/41. In my real-world driving the Prius Two Eco easily beat its EPA ratings, at least in temperate weather. Driven with a very light foot on my standard suburban route, it twice averaged 93 mpg, easily the best in my testing of any car without a plug. When the air temperature dropped into the 40s, though, I couldn't quite manage 60 mpg. On a 70-mph highway in mild weather the Prius averaged just over 60 mpg. Overall for the week it averaged 65 mpg, nearly double the C-MAX and more than double the Civic. My efforts were aided by some of the most thorough driving style feedback you'll find in a car. The Prius scores how you acclerate, cruise, and brake, and provides tips for improvement. It also stores your average mpg daily for a month, then monthly over a long time period. see full Toyota Prius review
