2016 Toyota Prius vs Camry Hybrid vs RAV4 Hybrid vs Highlander Hybrid
Hybrids are weak, toothless, too expensive to drive - all lies. And we're here to prove those statements are all myths by showcasing the mighty 2016 Toyota Hybrid class, featuring the 2016 Toyota Prius vs. 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs. 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid vs. 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. And what you'll learn may just astonish you, because hybrids are to traditional gas vehicles as using a DVR to record shows is to recording using a VCR – they both work, but the newer method is less wasteful, and better for the environment.
All Toyota hybrid vehicles have a combo gas / electric powertrain that reduces the emissions that gas-only vehicles give off, and all of these vehicles come with an amazing eight-year/100,000-mile Hybrid-related Component Coverage, which will make you more secure knowing your unique hybrid parts can be replaced easily.
Take, for example, the 2016 Toyota Prius. It withstands the scrutiny of those myths thanks to its class-leading 54 mpg city, 50 mpg highway, which will save you plenty over the lifetime of the vehicle, as well as its surprising space for an eco-friendly compact at 93.1 cubic feet. Plus, it has a fun design that stands out from the pack – once you see a Prius, you're not likely to forget its playful, pleasing exterior.
The 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is a midsize sedan with more space and weight than the 2016 Prius. It also comes with additional power yet a slight reduction in fuel economy: 43 mpg city, 39 mpg highway and a mighty 200 net horsepower between its gas engine and electric motor combined. It comes in several color variations and its design is a lot sportier than the Prius, so hop on in and rev it up – the best part is, Hybrid vehicles have a quieter engine than gas-only ones.

The 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is gaining in popularity, thanks to its swift handling, nice fuel economy and added toughness that you find in small SUVs. It can fit 70.6 cubic feet of cargo, roughly the equal of any non-hybrid gas-guzzler in its class, but it can also tow 1,750 pounds, which is a better number than you'll find in many gas-only small SUVs. But the kicker is that none of those less environmentally-friendly vehicles get such nice gas mileage at 34 mpg city and 31 mpg highway like the RAV4 Hybrid does.
Last but not least is the thumper of this group, the 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, a midsize SUV that is so powerful you would have no idea it's a hybrid unless you checked underneath the hood. With 280 net HP and enough passenger room for a large group at 141.1 cubic feet, plus an enormous cargo area with 83.2 cubic feet to fit your bags and items, this is the hybrid you want if you're taking a large group or you want to enjoy the most power, including the ability to tow 3,500 pounds.
When you're choosing a hybrid, it all comes down to what kind of lifestyle you have on the road – if you have a small family or you're single, the 2016 Prius is a real sleek money-saver; if you crave premium performance or you have a couple children, the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is nice; if you like versatility for any situation, then the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is your ride; if you want raw power and size, then the 2016 Toyota Highlander is ideal.
