I didn't have any pieces of plywood or large automotive parts to really test the limits of our long-term 2016 Toyota Prius' cargo capacity over the weekend, but that didn't matter. When I opened the hatch to load up my running gear, it was clear to me that the Prius was designed with cargo in mind.

Luggage and suitcases are all well and good. What I want to know about the 2016 Toyota Prius is this, can it haul my Giant extra-large mountain bike with big 29-inch wheels or not?
It's got a hatch, which is a strong start, but its roofline has been drastically lowered for 2016. And it's not a particularly large car to begin with. This was no slam-dunk.

Will the luggage fit? To answer this question we loaded our 2016 Toyota Prius with bags in different configurations and took photos. What constitutes carry-on luggage varies depending upon who you ask. So for the sake of standardization we used the same blue carry-on bag — size (21 x15x10 inches) and red checked bag — size (30x20x13 inches).
Take the jump for photos and more detail...

In this installment of "does the (pick your random object) fit?" I attempt to squeeze a stand-up paddle board into the cabin of our 2016 Toyota Prius. The board measures 9-foot-2 and when stood up on end, exceeds the limits of our blog's photo-cropping requirements.

With gas prices at the lowest levels we've seen in years, it's not surprising that trucks and SUVs are flying off dealer lots, while hybrids have become passé.
Well, most hybrids at least. Even with cheap gas, the Toyota Prius was still one of the most popular cars on the market last year.
The all-new 2016 Toyota Prius is looking to build on that continued momentum with a comprehensive list of upgrades. The most notable of those improvements is a new EPA rating of 52 mpg in combined city and highway driving.
