Product Overview

Toyota Prius Mk4 (chassis code XW50) facelift is a mid-size hatchback in production from 2018. It is available with a single hybrid drivetrain with a inline-4 Atkinson engine that displaced 1.8 liters.
For the first time, the Prius became available in AWD. Still, those seeking to maximize fuel economy and reliability should prefer the FWD model, which is sufficient for all weather conditions.
There is also a plugin-hybrid model of the Mk4 Prius, which is separately marketed as the Prius Prime. That vehicle is good for those who do lots of short trips but is suboptimal for long distances.
Engineers at Toyota clearly made a great effort in aerodynamics, with a class-leading 0.24 coefficient of drag to show for it.
Another plus is the small 10.2m (33.5ft) turning circle.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Toyota Prius Mk4 arrived in 2016, and it's based on Toyota's latest platform that's also used on the C-HR crossover and latest Corolla. Power comes from a 97bhp 1.8 VVT petrol engine combined with a 71bhp electric motor, while a 1.31kWh battery is stowed under the platform to store energy from braking and the electric motor. Prices for the Prius start from around £24,500, and the range comprises Active, Business Edition and Excel trims.

Pros
  • Fastest petrol-electric hybrid

  • Cheap to run
  • No automatic gearbox

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Prius AWD is the first hybrid Toyota outside of its SUV range to come with four driven wheels. The extra drive is supplied by a 5.3kW motor and inverter mounted to the rear axle. It is engaged at all times below 6mph to provide smoother traction when pulling away from a standstill. The powertrain is smooth, the steering light and precise, and the ride comfortable.

Pros
  • Cheap to run

  • Lack of tech
  • Expensive compared to rivals

The new plug-in model adds a significant amount to the purchase price – but in exchange you get three times the fuel economy. Charge the car up fully and you'll get 34 miles of pure-electric range. Shuffle the power around and models on the smallest wheels claim to achieve a staggering 217mpg. Owners also get a choice of three drive modes: Normal, Eco and Power.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine
  • Superb range
  • Good fuel economy
Cons
  • Pricier than standard Prius
  • Alternatives are more fun to drive

Based on how it looks, the Prius' interior was probably designed by aliens. Its dashboard is straight-up bizarre, ostensibly weird for the sake of being weird. Lane-departure alert with steering assist is standard on all 2020 Prius models. The Prius AWD-e comes in two trim levels, LE and XLE.

Pros
  • Excellent fuel economy

Cons
  • Middling infotainment system
  • No Android Auto

The main reason to buy a hybrid is fuel economy, and in this area the Prius lives up to the hype. Most front-wheel drive Prius models are rated at 52 mpg combined. The 2020 Prius comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) It's comfortable, practical and delivers on its promise of excellent gas mileage.

Pros
  • Best gas mileage of any Prius trim level
  • Comfortable front-wheel drive
  • Good fuel economy
Cons

  • Lane departure warning is too sensitive

The 2019 Prius carries on its award-winning reputation as a great commuter car. The Entune system includes AM/FM/CD audio with six speakers, onboard voice recognition, Siri Eyes Free, and Bluetooth for hands-free phone and music streaming. The cruise control interface feels dated and is placed awkwardly on a stalk behind the steering wheel.

Pros
  • Solid all-wheel-drive performance
  • Solid fuel economy
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • No Android Auto or Apple CarPlay
  • No onboard navigation or satellite radio

The 2020 Prius swapped the 2019 model's dated 6.1-inch touch-screen for a 7-inch version. The XLE trim starts at $29,575 and adds bi-LED projector headlights, a heated steering wheel and front seats. While its driving dynamics are dull overall, the latest-generation Prius builds on its reputation as an economical commuter car.
