2020 Toyota Prius Overview
The Toyota Prius is iconic for having brought hybrid technology to the masses, and it continues to represent that technology today. The 2020 model comes with new infotainment and safety technology.
As before, Toyota offers the Prius in L Eco, LE, XLE, and Limited trims. The basic L Eco comes with 15-inch steel wheels and wheel covers, bi-LED projector low- and high-beam lights, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster LCD, partial keyless access and keyless start, 6-speaker audio, and satellite radio. A 7-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa is new for 2020, as are rear USB charging ports. Other trims come with a 60/40 split-folding seat, leatherette upholstery, alloy wheels, Qi wireless charging, power seats, navigation, an 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and adaptive headlights.
Every standard Prius comes with a 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder, two electric motors, a battery, and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Together, these produce 121 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard, but you can add Toyota’s electronic all-wheel-drive (AWD-e) setup to LE and XLE models. That gives you an additional electric motor to power the rear axle in low-traction scenarios. Fuel economy is spectacular across the range. The FWD L Eco is the thriftiest, at 58 mpg city, 53 highway, and 56 combined. Other models, with and without FWD, still manage 54, 50, and 52. There is also now a separate plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) version of the Prius, called the Prius Prime.
Like most Toyota models, the Prius gets the Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) suite standard. It bundles forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and a reversing camera. Rain-sensing wipers, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and parking sensors come with LE and above trims. The Limited even comes with a color heads-up display. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Prius a 2019 Top Safety Pick designation.
