A sporty hybrid like the Toyota Prius offers a sleek, streamlined design, as well as excellent fuel economy. So, how efficient is this model, and what does it have to offer drivers in Ithaca, Elmira, and Binghamton?

Maguire Toyota finds out what it can do for you in this 2020 Toyota Prius review.

2020 Toyota Prius Fuel Economy

The 2020 Toyota Prius runs on an efficient hybrid powertrain that can get up to an EPA-estimated 58 MPG city and 53 MPG highway.[i] This system can also give you a sporty and capable performance with 121 total horsepower.

It starts with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i). To manage this engine, you'll have an Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT). Then there's a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor and a 207.2-volt lithium-ion battery that work alongside the engine.

Front-wheel drive is standard on the Toyota Prius. However, Electronic On-Demand Compact All-Wheel Drive is available on select trim levels.

Passenger & Cargo Room

Inside the 2020 Toyota Prius, you'll find comfortable seating for up to five people. There's 93.1 cubic feet of passenger space, as well as stylish fabric or SofTex® seats to relax in. Overall, there's plenty of room to stretch out, whether you're behind the wheel or sitting in the back row.

It's also easy to open up the cabin. An available power tilt and sliding moonroof can let lots of light in, while a sliding sunshade lets you brighten things up without getting too hot.

Feel free to pack lots of bags or boxes into your hybrid too. There's 27.4 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk, while the standard 60/40 split fold-down rear seats can help you make up to 65.5 cubic feet of space behind the front seats.

Infotainment System

In addition to all the technology that goes into making your hybrid efficient, there's also lots of tech to enjoy on your dashboard.

For instance, a 7-inch touchscreen is standard for your infotainment system, while an 11.6-inch multimedia display is available.

Both options feature a user-friendly infotainment system that's Bluetooth®-compatible and has standard Apple CarPlay®. You'll also be able to switch songs, take calls, and access apps without taking your eyes off the road, thanks to advanced voice recognition and Siri® Eyes Free.

It can even keep you connected to home with Amazon Alexa capability. Whether you're far from home or just around the corner, Wi-Fi Connect Powered by Verizon lets you stay connected, so you can use your favorite music streaming service and your passengers can check their email and social media.
