Celebrating 15 Years of Excellence – The 2016 Toyota Prius


For 15 years, Toyota has been active and effective in their attempt to change the way people look at personal transportation. In the Prius, Toyota materialized their initiative to achieve comfortable and efficient transportation without significantly damaging the earth.

The hybrid engine was a stunning success, and the Prius has been a staple in the American automotive market ever since its release in 2000. It started as an environmentally conscious alternative to the standard gas guzzling, high emission vehicles, but over its 15-year lifespan, the Prius has grown into much more than just a fuel saver.


The hybrid took on a life of its own, improving every year, converting doubters into believers and evolving into one of the most practical, trend-setting vehicles on the road. We here at Village Toyota, your local dealer of new Toyota’s in Homosassa, Florida, are proud to present to you the all-new 2016 Toyota Prius.

Beautifully Efficient

By now, most people know about the nearly unmatchable fuel-efficiency and the dramatically lowered CO2 emissions. The Prius earns an incredible 54 city miles per gallon, and according to, the Prius has contributed to the prevention of almost 12,000,000 tons of CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere thanks to its cleaner energy engine. What most people do not realize about the Prius are the attractive, intuitive design features and the surprisingly energetic drive.

The exterior has been totally redone with a new dynamic form. Distinctively shaped headlights give the Prius an attitude all its own, the low, sleek body shape decreases wind resistance and creates a more athletic drive, and the available LED taillights ensure that all eyes are on your Prius whether you’re coming or going. The 2016 Prius changes the game by adding a level of high style to its superior driving mechanics, creating one of the most sensible vehicle options on the market today.


The exterior is just the beginning of the innovation on the 2016 Prius. The new double-wishbone rear suspension helps to improve an already impressively smooth ride and decrease cabin noise to an all-time low. Upgrade to the Touring models and enjoy a more thrilling, playful driving style with athletically tuned suspension.

If you’re more into new and innovative technology, the Prius brings the goods to excite. With a futuristic, color heads-up display that can give navigation and hybrid system information, an ultra-convenient smart key system that allows your Prius to sense the key in your pocket, unlock doors with just a touch and start the car with the push of a button, and the attractive 7-inch touchscreen display that features an Entune premium audio system and a host of useful audio, navigation and social media applications, what more could you want from your vehicle?

The interior is as spacious and stylish as it is technologically advanced. The center console has been compressed to make more space for passengers, but has also been updated with a Qi-compatible wireless charging station for your smartphone. The 60/40 fold-flat rear seats allow drivers to fit all essentials in the 65.5 cubic feet of cargo space, and the heated front seats gives passengers a level of comfort that is difficult to match.


With all of these amazing features and stunning design, you will want to protect your Prius as much as possible, and with the Toyota Safety Sense P combined with an impressive list of standard safety features, keeping your baby safe has never been easier. Collision prevention systems like lane departure alert with steering assist, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control and pre-collision system with pedestrian detection are just a few of the ways that your Prius actively keeps you out of harm’s way.
