2020 Toyota Prius

2020 Prius Photos
The 2020 Toyota Prius hybrid offers a nice shape, impressive fuel economy, a reasonable price, and a lot of standard active safety equipment.

The 2020 Prius uses a 1.8-liter inline-4 engine and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), mated to an electric motor with a battery pack. The Prius Prime plug-in hybrid uses a larger battery pack that allows it to run about 25 miles on electricity alone. There is also an all-wheel-drive version that includes an extra electric motor to power the rear wheels at city speeds.

A new 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment this year adds Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa (but no Android Auto) compatibility, and includes USB ports and Bluetooth. The top Prius models include a Tesla-like 11.6-inch vertical touchscreen.

Safety technology includes adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking, while blind-spot monitors come on all but the entry-level Prius.
The Prius L Eco with special tires earns the best EPA ratings, with 58 mpg city, 53 highway, 56 combined. Other front-wheel-drive models earn 54/50/52 mpg. With all-wheel drive the numbers drop to 48/43/46 mpg. The Prius Prime gets 54 mpg combined and can run up to 25 miles on electric power alone, making it compelling for small-town driving and short commutes.

The NHTSA gave the 2020 Prius five stars overall in its crash tests, with four stars for frontal impact and four in the calculated rollover measurement. The 2020 Prius hasn't been crash tested by the IIHS.
