Infotainment System

For real time information on your battery and fuel levels, the Toyota Prius Prime features a 4.2-inch Multi-Information Display on top of the dashboard. In the center console, you'll find a user-friendly infotainment system. A sleek 7-inch touchscreen comes standard, but an 11.6-inch touchscreen is also available. Both options give your dashboard a futuristic feel, while the larger screen looks like a tablet has been placed in the middle of your vehicle.

There's lots of smartphone compatibility on both screens. Bluetooth® comes standard, so you'll be able to stream music and safely make hands free calls. For even more entertainment, both SiriusXM® and HD Radio® are available. You can also access your favorite apps through Apple CarPlay®.

Voice recognition comes standard and gives you the freedom to switch between apps, make a call, or change what you're listening too without taking your eyes off the road. Plus, the Toyota Prius Prime is compatible with Amazon Alexa. That means you can check the weather, get updates on the news, and control your home's smart devices while you're on the road.
