2017 Toyota Prius vs 2017 Nissan LEAF

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the Toyota Prius has long-since been a trail-blazer for everything hybrid. For 2017, the Prius is back on the scene with even more available updated technology like Intelligent Clearance Sonar for parking support, Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, and a color Head-Up Display that projects important information on the windshield.

When comparing the 2017 Toyota Prius to the 2017 Nissan LEAF, you have to take into consideration the difference in their power consumption. The new Prius runs off of hybrid technology that uses a gas-powered motor paired with a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor that charges as the vehicle goes, while the Nissan LEAF uses a 100% electric drive system powered by a rechargeable battery.

Test Drive the 2017 Toyota Prius in Yuma, AZ

Good fuel economy is perhaps one of the most important traits that car buyers look for when buying a vehicle. As you can see from the chart, the 2017 Prius gets up to 54 miles per gallon in the city thanks to its hybrid technology that allows the electric motor to power the vehicle until fuel is needed. On the flip side, the new Nissan LEAF can go up to 107 miles on a full charge. The downside to the all-electric LEAF is that you once your 107 miles are up, you will need to find a charging station and wait for your vehicle to reach a drivable charge again. In the new Prius, the mixture of electric and gas power allows you to go up to 600 miles on a full tank of gas.
