It’s an automotive industry truism: With every redesign, a car gets a little bigger and more powerful, and gains some safety features and creature comforts, while also seeing an incremental improvement in fuel economy.

And then there's the redesigned 2016 Toyota Prius. It not only easily tops its previous-generation's fuel economy, but also goes farther on a gallon of gasoline than any vehicle Consumer Reports has ever tested. By our measurements, it chalked up 52 mpg overall. That figure tops the previous-generation Prius' 44 mpg, and bests the original Honda Insight’s 51 mpg from way back in 2000.
