Product Overview

Toyota Prius Prime Mk2 (chassis code XW50) is a mid-size hatchback in production from 2017. It is powered by a single plugin-hybrid drivetrain with an inline-4 Atkinson engine that displaced 1.8 liters.
The plug-in hybrid drivetrain can help the owner save on fuel and car tax, though those who plan on keeping the car after warranty should be mindful of the complexity.
In other aspects, the car is just a standard Mk4 Prius with some extra weight.
Another plus is the small 10.2m (33.5ft) turning circle.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following***:
The Prius Prime's 8.8-kilowatt-hour battery pack allows for an EPA-rated 25 miles of electric only driving, at speeds up to 84 mph. That's no match for the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid's 48-mile range, but the Toyota offers greater efficiency. The car's 121 hp may not seem like much, but it's more than enough in real-world conditions. A full recharge from a 240-volt Level 2 AC source takes two hours and 10 minutes.

Pros
  • Excellent electric range
  • Excellent all-wheel drive
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • Alternatives offer more efficiency
  • No DC fast charging

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The Prius Prime sticks with its rear hatch heritage. The interior is roomy but utilitarian, with the instrument cluster in the center of the dash. The 11.6-inch vertically mounted touch-screen infotainment interface is impressive in form, but not in function. Toyota was slow to adopt Apple CarPlay, which is standard on the Prime.

Pros
  • Fun, torque-y acceleration
  • Good fuel economy
  • Competitively priced
Cons
  • Lack of Android Auto
  • Alternatives offer better range
