The Toyota Prius is carried over from the previous model with respect to both styling and powertrain. The first Toyota hybrid underwent a total redesign for 2004, and a new model will appear in 2009. Seat-side and side-curtain airbags have been added as standard safety features. Toyota has also introduced a new Touring trim, which offers more of a sporting demeanor.

Standard features are commensurate with the price. All models include steering wheel audio and climate controls, a six speaker CD sound system, a trip computer, cruise control, power windows, keyless entry, and automatic climate control. The base model can also be equipped with a DVD-based navigation system with voice-activation, Bluetooth, SmartKey, and a nine speaker JBL audio system with an in-dash CD changer.

All Prius models are 4 doors with a hatchback-style trunk. The car was restyled in 2004, perhaps to address the jeers about its awkward looks. The hybrid has also been criticized more its very modest power supply and acceleration. However, most drivers have found its smoothness and efficiency beyond reproach. The Hybrid Synergy Drive system is composed of a 1.5 liter inline four engine, working with two electric motors. The first motor functions as a power generator, for engine startup and battery recharging. The second electric motor drives the front wheels, along with the engine. The total power output is 110 horsepower. This power plant is mated to Toyota's unique continuously variable transmission.

The gasoline engine is almost unnecessary at low speeds and the second electric motor will power the car on its own. The result is higher city gas mileage. The EPA estimate for the Prius is 60/51 mpg.

The Touring Prius is new for 2007. Toyota has added this model to provide a sporty counterpart to their revolutionary hybrid hatchback. Both models add seat-side and side-curtain airbags to the list of standard safety equipment. Drivers can expect 60/51 mpg fuel efficiency, regardless of which Prius they choose.

All models come standard with automatic climate control, steering wheel audio and climate controls, a six speaker CD sound system, a trip computer, cruise control, power windows, and keyless entry. The Touring Prius is differentiated from the base by its 16 inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights and fog lights, a larger rear spoiler, and a special sport-tuned suspension. Either car can receive the navigation system, SmartKey, and leather seating.

While this model have a more performance-oriented presentation, the suspension is the only mechanical change. The Touring houses the same 1.5 liter four cylinder engine, coupled with a pair of electric motors. The inline four produces just 76 horsepower and 82 pound feet of torque by itself, and the electric motor offers a power boost equivalent to 67 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. torque. Because the power power peaks are different, the cumulative output is 110 horsepower. Toyota hybrids use a gear-less and clutch-less continuously variable transmission to distribute power evenly through the speed range.
