2021 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 seven models starting with the L Eco and moving through the well-equipped Limited . The 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 Apple CarPlay and Android Auto3 compatibility to Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 active safety features every Prius comes with technology that keeps you connected and protected. 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.
The Toyota Prius has all the technology you need. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility brings your smartphone to a seven- or 11.6-inch touchscreen display. Bluetooth adds advanced voice control and audio streaming or go old-school with the three USB ports. Enable the Alexa function and you can start your Prius from your living room by saying “Alexa start my car.” Available Integrated Navigation tells you the best way to get where you’re going and available Wireless Charging keeps your devices powered up. The Toyota Prius. It’s the high-tech hybrid.
The Toyota Prius brings safety to the hybrid world. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 uses cameras and radar to scan the road ahead behind and to the side. Standard features include Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist Full-Speed-Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Automatic High Beams. Available Blind-Spot Monitor lets you know who’s beside you and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps you avoid collisions when you’re backing out of parking spots and driveways. The Toyota Prius. High-tech hybrid. High-tech safety.
The Toyota Prius is a genuine automotive icon. And how do you get to be an icon? Easy—change the world. Combine a 1.8-liter gas engine with an electric motor and call it Toyota Hybrid System II. Make it efficient so it gets up to 58 miles per gallon. Give the hybrid battery a 10-year/150 000-mile warranty. Then make sure it’s fun to drive. Put the battery under the seats for a low center of gravity. Add a second electric motor that powers the rear wheels for available Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive. The Toyota Prius. It’s an icon because it’s fun.
