The ability to achieve 50 miles per gallon or better is nothing new for the Toyota Prius. However, in the nearly 20 years since the first-generation hatchback was produced, customer tastes have shifted toward connectivity being a top priority. All trim grades of the 2020 Prius coming to the Colonial Toyota showroom will have a 7-inch touchscreen that is compatible with both Apple CarPlay® and Amazon Alexa. This means that drivers and passengers alike will be able to connect their compatible iPhone to the hybrid vehicle’s infotainment system and expand the native capabilities of both pieces of technology. Amazon Alexa will expand the capabilities of the digital home assistant to the car, offering most, if not all of the same conveniences. Additionally, the 2020 Prius can be equipped with all-wheel-drive – a feature that was introduced last year.
All versions of the 2020 Toyota Prius will use the same powertrain. Under the hood of the latest Prius is a naturally aspirated 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that is attached to an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. When the gasoline- and electrically powered systems are working together, the 2020 Prius will make up to 121 horsepower.
While each trim grade of the 2020 Toyota Prius uses the same engine, there are some disparities in fuel economy scores in its lineup. The L Eco model can post up to 58 miles per gallon in the city and 53 miles per gallon on the highway. Colonial Toyota customers choosing any other model will see 54 miles per gallon in the city and 50 miles per gallon on the highway.
The 2020 Toyota Prius can comfortably seat up to five passengers. All of them will have plenty of headroom and legroom to be comfortable on even the longest trips. Its hatchback design allows Prius owners to take advantage of the unique geometry to be among the more practical hybrid vehicles on the market. The 2020 Prius can hold up to 27.4 cubic-feet of cargo.
