Car Pro Jerry Reynolds Puts the 2016 Toyota Prius Through Its Paces

With improved ride and handling, great styling, more trunk space, and other upgrades, fourth-generation Prius serves as a new benchmark for hybrids, Car Pro reports

The Car Pro released a brand-new 2016 Toyota Prius Review, finding the updated car an especially successful addition to a popular lineage. In an extensive video test drive and written review, Car Pro Jerry Reynolds finds the fourth-generation Prius a pleasure to drive, with ride refinement and improved handling standing particularly, concluding that the car is a "benchmark" for other hybrid vehicles to be judged against. Whether online at or through nationally broadcast weekly radio shows, the Car Pro is a highly trusted source of new car reviews, news updates, and other automotive information.

"Even with the great success of the early Prius models, Toyota was never content with standing still," Reynolds said, "That fact shines through clearly in the 2016 Prius, with a wide range of improvements making an excellent hybrid even better. With more room in the trunk and up front, the fourth-generation Prius is also a pleasure to drive and ride in. This is also the best-looking Prius ever, and we turned plenty of heads as we put it through its paces on local roads. For the first time, we think even those who are normally not interested in hybrid vehicles are going to be swayed by this car's styling, performance, and overall value."

After several years spent tweaking the very first Prius hybrid vehicle in its home market of Japan, Toyota rolled out the improved first-generation model worldwide in 2000. The distinctive-looking car made an immediate impression, quickly becoming the first hybrid vehicle to achieve true mass-market success.

Almost twenty years since the very first Prius went on sale to Japanese buyers, Toyota last year introduced the fourth generation of what is now a thriving family of cars. As an automotive authority with more than 35 years of experience in the industry, Car Pro Jerry Reynolds recently took the centerpiece of the new generation, the sedan-style Prius, out for an extensive test drive and review.

Reynolds was impressed with just about everything regarding the 2016 Prius, from the way that a slightly stretched wheelbase provides more interior and trunk room to how markedly improved ride and handling address two former weaknesses of the line. The Prius 4 Touring trim with Premium Convenience package that Reynolds reviewed also represents a surprising value at its price point, being better equipped even than many cars that lack fuel-saving hybrid technology.

Reynolds' new review of the 2016 Prius is available now at the Car Pro website, a top destination for all who care about cars. Visitors to the site will find many more of the Car Pro's famously helpful reviews, along with listings of select new car dealers where they can arrange a test drive of their own.
