Default 7 All New Things You Should Know About the 2016 Toyota Prius


Quote:
The 2016 Toyota Prius was unveiled earlier last month and now more details on the hybridís technology has been released. Hereís what you need to know:

Although the new Toyota Prius retains the 1.8-liter VVT-i gasoline engine found in the current model, the powerplant has been entirely re-engineered, according to Toyota, resulting in better performance, fuel economy and reductions to size and weight. Although fuel economy figures still havenít been revealed, the Japanese automaker expects the car to see a 10-percent improvement in EPA estimated MPG on the core models, while the Prius Eco will see even greater improvements.

As Toyota mentioned at the modelís debut, the new engine has a maximum thermal efficiency of 40 percent thanks to a large-volume exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system and improvements in combustion efficiency. There is also a redesigned air intake port that improves airflow inside the combustion chamber, while Toyota also redesigned the coolant passages to optimize internal engine temperature.
