2018 Toyota Prius Prime vs. 2018 Chevrolet Volt

Investing in a new car requires thorough analysis of the car model and its features. Car buyers in Milford Connecticut face a difficult time, when choosing between the 2018 Chevrolet Volt and the 2018 Toyota Prius Prime. Both of them are desirable choices, but on comparing the two, you will find out why Toyota Prius Prime emerges as the clear winner. 

Design & Style

When we talk about the exterior, both the models have a lot to offer. They are almost similar from the outside, but the interiors make all the difference. The 2018 Chevrolet Volt is less upmarket than its rivals, with a lot of hard plastic. But the design is attractive and modern with a quiet cabin, especially when the car runs on electric power.

When it comes to the 2018 Toyota Prius Prime, you would simply love its readable small stereo screen. It comes with an inventive double-bubble rear window, which is first of its kinds.

Technology & Safety

Safety and technology play an important role, when you are considering to buy a new car. Standard features in the 2018 Chevrolet Volt include the MyLink infotainment system with an 8 inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi Hot spot, an audio system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, two USB ports, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Volt also comes standard with a Teen Driver and a rearview camera, where former can be used to set volume and speed limits for the car, when others drive it. Standard safety features include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and automatic parking assist.

In terms of safety and technology, the 2018 Toyota Prius Prime takes a step ahead with a better stereo system, and plenty of desirable features. It is also equipped with driver assistance to outclass its peers. Standard safety features are included in the base model, and you don’t have to shell out extra cash to get one.


Performance assessment is necessary to judge the credibility of a vehicle. The Volt features an electric motor with 4-cylinder 1.5 liter engine combining to produce 149 HP. On the other hand, the 2018 Toyota Prius Prime is a preferred choice with a fully charged battery rated at 133 miles per gallon. It has a 4-cylinder 1.8 liter engine, and does a good job of transitioning between electric and gas power.

The Bottom Line

Given the comparison above, you would simply love the features of the Toyota Prius Prime, and there’s no reason why you won’t be choosing it as your next car. Although 2018 Chevrolet Volt is a great pick as well, the Prius Prime is offered as a total package.
