Born Leader

THE 2017 PRIUS LIFTBACK CONTINUES TO FORGE A PATH TO A SMARTER, SAFER FUTURE.

Why should you buy a 2017 Toyota Prius from Toyota of Gladstone?

Revolutionary exterior design. Upgraded interior features. Reliable hybrid system. Advanced convenience features and technology. Top-of-the-line drive dynamics. Standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). These phrases only begin to describe the numerous enhancements made to the 2017 Prius.

Defying Convention

As the first vehicle on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) designed to enhance product appeal through an integrated approach to powertrain components and vehicle platforms, the 4th generation Prius receives a new double wishbone rear suspension and lower center of gravity height, which both contribute to the enhanced handling, stability and driving dynamics of the next generation Prius.

Fun Fact - the Toyota emblem on the 2017 Prius is the same height from the ground as the Toyota emblem on the 86.

Anything but Expected

Prius Two receives a Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery while the remaining 5 models receive a Lithium-Ion Battery. EPA estimated fuel economy for Prius Two Eco is 58 city/53 highway/56 combined and the other 5 models have an EPA estimated fuel economy of 54 city/50 highway/52 combined. Prius delivers the highest mileage of any vehicle without a plug-in on the road today.

Cargo capacity in the 2017 Prius increased from 21.6 cubic feet to 24.6 cubic feet on models with a spare tire and to 27.4 cubic feet on Prius models receiving a tire repair kit.

Still Ahead of Its Time

Standard on all Prius trims, Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. A Toyota First, Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is currently only available on the MY17 Prius under TSS-P. Additionally, Lane Departure Alert on the MY17 Prius includes Steering Assist.

While Dynamic Radar Cruise Control disengages under 25 miles per hour, Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control under certain circumstances is designed to operate between 0 to 110 miles per hour. Once the vehicle directly in front of the Prius moves forward, the Prius driver needs only to press down on the accelerator pedal and Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control will resume. Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control may enable low speed following, speed matching, stopping, and acceleration/deceleration to a preceding vehicle.

Lane Departure Alert on the 4th generation Prius also comes with Steering Assist. When Steering Assist is enabled, if the system determines that the vehicle is on a path to unintentionally depart from a lane with visible white and yellow lane markers, the system will provide small corrective steering inputs to the steering wheel for a short period of time to help keep the vehicle in its lane.

Available Intelligent Parking Assist with Intelligent Clearance Sonar, standard backup camera, available Qi wireless charging, Standard Siri® Eyes Free and available Entune Premium JBL Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite with 10 JBL GreenEdge speakers in six locations are just some of the enhanced technology features available on the 2017 Prius.
