For those drivers looking for a vehicle that represents the pinnacle of efficiency and technology, the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime is a great option for you! It comes equipped with the Toyota brand’s most efficient hybrid powertrain, industry leading fuel economy, and class-leading safety technology. Here at our Toyota dealership serving Kearny Mesa, CA, we’re excited about this new Toyota hybrid and can’t wait to show Southern California drivers everything that it has to offer!

The four-door 2017 Toyota Prius Prime comes powered by both a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and an 8.8 kWh battery pack that almost doubles the all-electric range of the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime compared to the previous Toyota Plug-In. It offers a combined output of 121 horsepower and comes paired to a continuously variable transmission. The combination of the electric motor, which should have a battery powered range of 22 miles before the gas engine powers on, and the CVT offers a spunky and responsive driving experience. On the highway, when driving in battery mode, it offers a smooth and quiet ride thanks to its sound-insulating laminated windshield and front-door glass, comprehensive sound measures, and the aerodynamic shaping that is optimized to minimize sound.

In keeping with the Toyota brand’s pledge to safety, the 2017 Toyota Prius Prime offers a number of active and passive driver assistance features such as the standard Toyota Safety Sense P system, which features pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and automatic braking, lane departure alert with steering assist, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control with full stop technology and automatic high beams, and more!
