The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Toyota Prius C remains the least expensive hybrid and retains a 50-mpg rating; it's happier in crowded cities than for long-distance highway travel. The 2016 Toyota Yaris is Toyota's least expensive model, but it doesn't stand out in any particular category.
