As the first mass-produced hybrid, the Toyota Prius has always lead the pack. With an all-new model release last year, Toyota introduced a different kind of Prius to revolutionize the market. The 2013 Toyota Prius C is the latest incarnation of that innovation. While the compact C is a top contender, it doesn’t mean it comes without some competition. In the Toyota Prius C vs Honda CR-Z stand-off, who will win?
The Prius C livens up the bland image that comes to mind when some people think of a hybrid. It’s agile and manuevers easily through the streets of Manassas as well as in and out of tight parking spots. While the 2013 Honda CR-Z shoots for the hot-hatch image with a sportier look and quick steering, it falls short in many areas. The CR-Z has a striking lack of interior volume with 74.2 cu. ft* compared to the Prius C’s 87.4 cu. ft. The two-seater loses points for versatility to the more spacious Toyota Prius C.
Even more difficult to overlook is the outstanding efficiency of the Prius C. It’s EPA-estimated mileage of 53 mpg city/46 mpg highway and 50 mpg combined not only surpasses the CR-Z’s 37 mpg combined rating, but it is by far the most economical non-plug-in hybrid on the market.** That SAVES Prius drivers A LOT of money!
Geared towards practicality and versatility, the Prius C’s $19,875 starting MSRP is slightly lower than that of the CR-Z. Add to that it’s stellar fuel efficiency and great interior room, and you have your answer: The 2013 Toyota Prius C reigns supreme.
