The 2016 Prius is anticipating fuel economy ratings of 54 MPG city / 50 MPG Highway / 52 MPG combined (Final EPA figures pending.). That’s better than any mass- produced passenger vehicle available without a plug. And, as before, the Prius sips regular-grade gasoline. A new Eco grade model is expecting ratings of 58 MPG city / 53 MPG Highway / 56 MPG combined
