Cars like the 2018 Toyota Prius C Hatchback might not be able to give you the direct benefits one might expect from its hybrid powertrain. However, its use must not be overlooked. The Prius C uses its 1.5L inline-4 hybrid and 12-Volt hybrid system battery to produce 99 horsepower and 82 lb-ft of torque. This gives the Prius C a 0-60 of 10.8 seconds. The hybrid engine here is to support the gasoline engine to boost performance and offer slightly better fuel economy than what a single gasoline engine would be capable of. That said, the 2018 Prius C achieves a combined fuel economy of 46 MPG. As part of the compact hatchback class, the Prius C competes with the Ford C-Max hybrid, and the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.
