The 2018 Toyota Prius is one of the most fuel-efficient in its class, achieving up to an EPA-estimated 58 city/53 highway MPG.*
There are many factors that contribute to this high fuel economy. For instance, the vehicle is equipped with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, two electric motors, and a continuously variable transmission.
It also has different modes to tailor your driving experience. ECO Mode will help maximize fuel economy. EV Mode will operate solely on battery power for up to one-half of a mile. POWER Mode will increase throttle response to give a more spirited drive.
Overall, the Prius offers a good steering feel, along with a quiet and comfortable ride. This makes it easy to drive it around town, as well as longer trips on the highway.
Interior Space & Amenities
The 2018 Prius may be a compact car, but it offers lots of space for five passengers. It has 42.3 inches of front legroom, 33.4 inches of rear legroom, and 93.1 cubic feet of passenger volume. Plus, with 24.6 cubic feet of cargo space, you can fit all the items you need for a trip to the beach, the mountains, or anywhere else.
The vehicle's amenities will help keep you nice and comfortable. An 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat is available to get in that perfect position behind the wheel. Heated front seats are also available, so you can warm up on particularly frigid mornings.
Furthermore, you're sure to stay connected and entertained through the available Entune™ Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite. The navigation system will help you easily get from Point A to Point B. With the App Suite, you can listen to music on iHeartRadio, read reviews on Yelp®, or make dinner reservations on OpenTable®.
Advanced Safety Features
The Toyota Prius doesn't hold back on its safety features. In fact, it comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), an intelligent suite of driver-assisting technologies. TSS-P was designed to help alert you to things you might miss while driving.
Some of the features included in this suite are:
- Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: This system will adjust your speed so that you maintain a safe following distance from the car in front of you. It can even apply the brakes for you, if it determines that you need to slow your car down more.
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: Uses a camera and radar to help detect a person or vehicle in front of you. If a frontal collision is likely, you'll get audio and visual alerts. If you don't react in time, it can automatically apply the brakes to reduce your speed.
- Lane Departure Alert: Detects lane departure on roads with clear markings. If it senses that you're unintentionally drifting, it can make small corrective steering inputs to get you back to your lane center.
These are just some of the many ways that the Toyota Prius gives you total peace of mind.
