Aerodynamically speaking, Prius c is pretty refined. Those bumps on the taillights? Those are vortex generators. They help improve straight-line control and overall efficiency by dictating airflow behavior around the vehicle. And we’ve taken great sound-absorbing measures to keep outside noises outside, adding extra comfort and quietness to Prius c’s cabin.
Prius c is rated as a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV), a designation indicating it produces fewer smog-forming emissions than an average gasoline-powered new vehicle.
