2019 Toyota Prius Review

The Toyota Prius was leading the revolution before there was a revolution. So today while everybody else plays catch-up the Prius just keeps building on its legacy cementing its place as the go-to hybrid. Choose from six models starting with the LE Eco and moving through the well-equipped Limited. Every Prius is engineered to get great gas mileage—like up to 58 miles per gallon. Available Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive uses a dedicated electric motor to power the rear wheels. Your Prius slips through the air almost undetected. Underbody panels and active grille shutters combine for an ultra-low coefficient of drag. Why should you care? Because every mile you drive your wallet gets fatter. And from the Entune audio system to the Toyota Safety Sense P suite of driver-assist features every Prius comes standard with technology that connects and protects. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Toyota Accessories and build a Prius that’s all yours. The Toyota Prius. The revolution is on.
