    Understanding the Prius Prime Plug In Hybrid System

    The Prius LE vs. the Honda Insight

    • As hybrid cars, both the Insight and the Prius earn a nice 52 mpg combined on the highways and byways around Hampton, NH and Dover, NH. However, the Prius has a greater range, taking you further between fill ups than the Honda Insight. Holding up to 11.3 gallons of gas, the Prius averages around 610 miles in the city and 565 miles on the highway, while the Honda, with a 10.6-gallon capacity, averages just 583 miles in the city and 519 miles on the highway per tank of gas.
    • Take more of the things you need with you when you leave the house in a Prius. Our useful hybrid has a rear cargo hold that can accommodate up to 24.6 cubic feet with the seats in place, and more than 50 cubic feet with the seats folded flat. As a compact sedan, the Honda Insight cargo hold can't compete with the Prius, and has a trunk space that comes in at just 15.1 cubic feet.
    • Take a closer look at the exterior of both the Prius LE and the Honda Insight. At first glance, you'll notice that both offer compact hybrid car dimensions that are easy to park and maneuver. But look a little closer, and you'll see that the Toyota Prius measures a little taller and longer than the Insight. For you and your passengers inside the car, this translates to more comfy space to stretch out in, especially when it comes to headroom, which the Prius has more of all around.
    • When it comes to the tech and creature comforts Portsmouth and Exeter drivers want, the Prius delivers. Every Toyota Prius car comes with such features as standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the Honda Insight only makes them available as options on upper trims.

    The Prius Prime Plug-In Hybrid vs. Other Brand Plug-In Models

    The original Prius hybrid has been the go-to source for Portsmouth and Dover, NH drivers looking for a hybrid and efficient car since 1997. After two decades as the industry leader in hybrid technology with the beloved Toyota Prius, our favorite carmaker introduced a new version of our old friend in 2016, when they gave us the plug-in, rechargeable model - the Toyota Prius Prime. Other carmakers have since released plug-in hybrid cars that compete with the Prius Prime, but they can't match the original for smooth ride and genuine Toyota reliability and quality.

    • Compared next to other plug-in models, the Prius Prime has the best fuel economy ratings than the competition. Our Prius Prime is rated for 55 mpg in the city, 53 mpg on the highway, and a combined 54 mpg. Meanwhile, looking at just a handful of competitors, for example, the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In averages just 52 mpg combined, the Kia Niro Plug-In gets 46 mpg combined, and the Volvo S60 plug-in T8 gets 30 mpg combined.
    • While Prius Prime, Kia Niro, Hyundai Ioniq, and Volvo S60 are all compact cars that seat five people, the Prius model gives you, and your passengers, more space to stretch out. In fact, our Toyota model gives Hampton, NH drivers more legroom in the front seat than all three competing models that we looked at, and more headroom than most.
    • Have cargo you want to take with you when you hit the road in Exeter? The Prius Prime can help. It has a flexible, hatchback-style cargo hold that is useful and accommodating. It's also more spacious than the competing plug-in hybrids, especially the Volvo S60, whose trunk holds just 11.6 cubic feet, while the Prius Prime can hold more than 19 cubic feet.
