Vehicle manufacturers are rolling out their 2020 models and Toyota is no exception. Already at the top of its game, Toyota thrills hybrid owners even more with some amazing additions to its 2020 Prius Hybrid. This vehicle is sure to impress even the hardest hybrid skeptics, and we here at Luscious Garage cannot wait to maintain these amazing automobiles. Here’s what’s in store for 2020 Prius purchasers.
Toyota understood early on that hybrids would not penetrate the American market if they weren’t affordable. The 2020 Prius Hybrid comes with a $27,600 sticker price for the base model and a $33,500 sticker price for a hybrid filled with luxury features. You don’t have to drop over $33 grand to get a fantastic vehicle, however, which will likely make the 2020 Toyota Prius Hybrid a top-seller.
The newer hybrid is called the Toyota Prius Prime and Toyota engineers designed interior space to allow for a fifth passenger. This makes the car perfect for families, carpool drivers, and those who love to shuttle the whole gang on friends night out. Gone are the days of no space inside a hybrid vehicle. The spacious interior of the Prius Prime keeps passengers comfortable throughout their ride.
Passengers can enjoy an awesome entertainment system in the 2020 Toyota Prius Hybrid, too. Toyota added its patented Entune™ “infotainment” touchscreen system to all 2020 Prius Prime models. The base model has a 7-inch screen, but drivers can upgrade to an 11.6-inch display if they choose to do so. Included in the entertainment system are access to Amazon Alexa and Apple CarPlay.
As people become more attached to their gadgets, the need for additional USB ports inside a vehicle increases and Toyota has met the call. Its engineers included an additional two USB ports for backseat passengers, so everyone can charge their devices while on the road. This may or may not be a good thing for moms and dads who want their kids to put down their screens.
Aesthetic Perks and Under-the-Hood Enhancements
Some 2020 models feature interior accents in black and a new center-console layout to give drivers and passengers a sleek and modern ride. Toyota also improved the Prius Hybrid under the hood. The 2020 models offer drivers 121 horses running off a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine driven by Toyota’s high-tech Hybrid Synergy Drive.
It gets better! When you couple this with Toyota’s Continuously Variable Transmission, the 2020 Prius Hybrid boasts a 640-mile driving range at 54 miles-per-gallon and 25 miles when in electric mode. When it’s time for a recharge, the vehicle will be up and running in five-and-a-half hours when plugged into a standard outlet and in two hours when plugged into a 240-volt outlet.
