If we can rely on the latest reports, the 2020 Toyota Prius is about to receive a facelift. The iconic hybrid cars will definitely continue to deliver amazing overall quality. Despite being just a regular hybrid car, this is still the best choice among electrified cars.
Excellent fuel economy, amazing reliability and legendary reputation are just some of many reasons why the Prius is the undisputed leader of the segment. The current generation is on the market since 2015. The facelifted model has already been introduced in Japan and then we expect to see it in North America soon, as the 2020 Toyota Prius.
The upcoming redesign is about to bring some nice novelties. We are about to see changes on both ends of the car. The front end will come with revisions on parts like front fascia and bumper. On the other side, the rear end is about to come with new headlights and a few more modification on the tailgate.
Still, the overall design will remain the same. This also refers to mechanics and technical specifications. The 2020 Toyota Prius will keep identical size and continue to ride on, now already famous, TNGA platform, which has brought significant improvements in terms of driving dynamics and overall ride quality.
The interior probably won’t suffer too much with this update. We are about to see the same cabin layout which, compared to some previous generations, features mostly hi-quality soft-touch materials. The whole cabin is very comfortable, though some rivals, like Chevy Volt or Hyundai Ioniq, offer a little bit more space in the second row. On the other side, the Prius offers pretty generous cargo area, a capacity of around 25 cubic feet, which are pretty much class-leading numbers.
Finally, there is an impressive list of standard safety features, which includes things like automatic high beams, rearview camera and Toyota Safety Sense, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection etc.
2020 Toyota Prius Interior Engine
If you prefer a dynamic ride, the 2020 Toyota Prius definitely won’t be a choice for you. This model comes with a four-cylinder-based hybrid system that delivers around 121 horsepower. Such amount of power is more than enough for city ride, but you may find some struggle on a highway. On the other side, you can count on spectacular fuel economy, which goes around 54 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on the highway, which are class-leading numbers.
2020 Toyota Prius Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2020 Toyota Prius sometime in the second half of the year. The price should remain the same, which would mean around $23,000 for the base model.
