Already 20 years have gone by since the United States first saw the Toyota Prius on its roads. It was a rough start for the awkward little hybrid hatchback, but it eventually came into its own. As hybrids have become more popular, so has the Prius, to the point where the 2021 model year marks the 20th anniversary celebration of the best-selling hybrid in the world.
The 2021 version of the Toyota Prius isn’t remarkably different from the last few model years, but it has undergone yearly tweaking until is has essentially become the perfect Toyota hybrid. Fuel efficiency, interior technology, and safety technology all do their part to help make the current generation of the Toyota Prius what it is. The chart that follows lists some of the most important highlights in these categories.
The 2021 Toyota Prius isn’t a one-trick pony. Although its main appeal is its fuel efficiency, there are plenty of things to enjoy inside, especially with the 2020 Edition and Limited trim levels. Even if you only choose the L Eco trim, you still get the best looking generation of the Prius ever, plenty of cargo space, stellar fuel economy, and smartphone connectivity over Bluetooth® and USB.
