The 2016 Toyota Prius c is made for the city -- that's what the 'c' actually stands for. This hybrid hatchback is remarkable on gas, and it has some style to match. We have five reasons to start saving big with the Prius c.

Frugal on Fuel

There's no doubt that saving fuel is a top priority when purchasing a hybrid. Whether you're looking to reduce emissions, save money or both, the Prius c delivers. With an amazing 53 miles per gallon in the city and 46 mpg on the highway, the c definitely does the trick.

City-Friendly Dimensions

We don't know how Toyota did it, but they managed to squeeze a hybrid drivetrain and enough room for five people into a car that's technically classified as a subcompact. This Prius feels much larger than it looks. But where you'll really benefit is parking in tight spaces and zipping through narrow city streets.

Wallet-Friendly Hybrid

In addition to helping you spend way less at the pump, the Prius c is one of the cheapest new hybrids you can buy in the United States. It comes in around $5,000 less than the regular Prius. Depending on how much you drive, this hybrid might save you that same amount again just in total fuel savings.

Toyota Quality

Most of us don't really realize how complex a gasoline-electric hybrid system is, but Toyota has just about perfected it. They also have extremely high reliability ratings and build quality. All in all, the Prius c makes driving worry-free.

All the Right Gear

Even at the base trim level, the Prius c receives LED front and rear lights, USB and Bluetooth music streaming, and a phone link. There's also a 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen, a CD player and even a color-matched rear spoiler, all of which come standard -- talk about generous. Toyota even gave the c nine airbags to ensure safety.

Autotrader Says

Looking to get into a brand-new hybrid? The 2016 Toyota Prius c is probably the most cost-effective way to do it. Get to a Toyota dealer, and take a spin in the Prius c.
