The 2019 Prius vs Competition

When someone mentions a hybrid vehicle, the first car that usually comes to mind is the Toyota Prius. The Prius really changed the way people looked at hybrid vehicles and kick started the wave of alternative fuels for vehicles. With a rechargeable battery pack that can be used to fuel the battery while still utilizing gasoline, the Prius saw unheard of fuel mileage in the 50+ miles per gallon range

Over the years, Toyota has continued to improve on this design, making the Prius more advanced and more feature packed to attract more buyers. With the addition of these features came more competitors as other manufacturers looked for more fuel efficient options for their vehicles.

The 2019 Toyota Prius has a long list of competitors as the hybrid engine becomes more popular. Today we are going to look at three of its biggest competitors and see exactly how the Prius stacks up against them.

Toyota Prius Vs Chevrolet Volt

Adequately named, the Volt was Chevrolet’s breakthrough in the Hybrid vehicle industry. Utilizing a similar setup as the Prius, Chevrolet made the Volt very attractive to users through design, technology, and safety. However, Toyota already had a head start and was able to make their Prius better and better each year. The 2019 variants of each of these vehicles were great competition for each other, but as you can see below, the Prius was a clear winner in multiple categories.

  • Better Combined Fuel Mileage (52 Miles Per Gallon Vs 45 Miles Per Gallon)
  • More Torque ( 105 ft-lbs Vs 103 ft-lbs)
  • Larger Fuel Tank Capacity (11.3 Gallons Vs 8.9 Gallons)

Toyota Prius Vs Ford Fusion Hybrid

Ford has always been one to bring forward the latest technology through their vehicles and a hybrid vehicle was one of Ford’s biggest accomplishments. Working this engine into several of their lineups, Ford has been able to offer many of its same vehicles that everyone has grown to love, with all of the same features but with a hybrid engine upgrade. The 2019 Ford Fusion is a perfect example as it is one of the Prius’ competitors. As you can see below, the Prius has some very sharp advantages when comparing some popular aspects of each vehicle.

  • Better Combined Fuel Mileage (52 Miles Per Gallon Vs 42 Miles Per Gallon)
  • Lighter Curb Weight (3,075 lbs Vs 3,668 lbs)
  • Large Maximum Luggage Volume (62.7 Cubic Feet Vs 12.0 Cubic Feet)

Toyota Prius Vs Honda Accord Hybrid

Continuing their ongoing rivalry, Toyota and Honda go head to head again with the Prius and the Accord. These vehicles, while looking very different, compete in the same hybrid space. Surprisingly, the Prius beats out the Accord in many places we would not expect it to which leads us to believe that Toyota is starting to improve the Prius more than anticipated.

  • Better Combined Fuel Mileage (52 Miles Per Gallon Vs 48 Miles Per Gallon)
  • Lighter Curb Weight (3,075 lbs Vs 3,327lbs)
  • Large Maximum Luggage Volume (62.7 Cubic Feet Vs 16.7 Cubic Feet)
