Performance and Efficiency Info 

Toyota hasn’t released the official performance output figures for the 2021 Toyota Prius. However, we do know that the 2021 Prius will be built on the automaker’s Toyota New Global Architecture. Drivers will have more than enough performance to work with while also taking full advantage of the hybrid hatchback’s city and highway combined fuel economy rating of 52 miles per gallon. Additionally, Toyota will be equipped more 2021 Prius trims with the ability to make short trips without using a drop of gasoline by activating its electric-only driving mode

Updated Safety Technology 

The 2021 Toyota Prius will be equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. This system has been available with several Toyota models recently. One of the system’s additions that piques the interest of new buyers is Road Sign Assist. The exterior array of cameras will look for certain relevant road signs and display them on the multifunction display behind the steering wheel. This will come in very handy when traveling on unfamiliar highways.
