2021 Toyota Prius

Enjoy the Fuel Economy of the Future with the 2021 Toyota Prius

The 2021 Toyota Prius is carrying on the tradition set forth by its namesake. As perhaps the best selling and most well-known hybrid car on the road, many won't expect the 2021 to boast such a roomy cabin and versatile capabilities. But, as always, the Prius is committed to surprising us year after year. If you want to know more about the features of the Prius, we'll outline them below.

Cargo Space

The Toyota Prius has taken a commanding lead on the list of hybrid and electric cars with the largest cargo capacity. While the LE trims and all-wheel-drive models boast 0.69 cubic meters of cargo space, the hatchback offers you 0.77 cubic meters of storage. Of course, this space can be expanded dramatically by folding down the two rear seats.

Seating and Interior

Despite its small frame, the Prius seats five people comfortably. Not just comfortably, however, but with plenty of headroom and legroom to spare. Even taller folks won't complain about riding in the back seat, and the driver will love their new and improved 360-degree visibility.

The interior is stylish, spacious, and designed for maximum comfort. Though there are numerous styles available from Toyota's custom shop, even the most basic cabin is driver-friendly and highly intuitive. The touch-screen dashboard controls the infotainment system, including all six speakers, messaging, phone, navigation options, and music.

The 2021 Prius is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa, and Sirius XM. It also has two USB charge ports to keep your devices powered up.

Prius Engine and Fuel Economy

The 2021 Prius comes equipped with a 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor. Together, the two put out 121 horsepower. While not capable of "sports car" bursts of speed, this is certainly enough power to handle most driving situations. As with previous models, the 2021 also comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) standard.

Of course, when you talk about the Prius, car buyers want to know about the fuel economy. As usual, you can expect the mileage to be above average, even for hybrid vehicles. For instance, the Prius L Eco uses 4.05 L/100km in the city and 4.43 on the highway. This is the highest rating you'll find in the Class of 2021, with other trims netting around 4.35 L/100km city and 4.70 L/100km highway for front-wheel drive and 4.61 / 5.00 for all-wheel-drive models.

Prius Ride and Handling

The Prius isn't designed to offer a thrilling driving experience, but you're sure to enjoy the ride anyway. Whisper-quiet, smooth, and efficient, the Independent MacPherson strut front suspension will help you take corners with ease. At the same time, the electric power steering will make maneuvering the Prius easy as pie.

The Prius also comes with three driving modes, all of which have their best uses. One of the best-reviewed improvements for 2021 is the more powerful Eco mode, which maximizes fuel efficiency while providing improved acceleration.

The Toyota Warranty

Toyota has paired the new 2021 Prius with a three-year/36,000 -mile basic warranty.  Meanwhile, the powertrain comes with a five-year-60,000 warranty, and hybrid components come with a five-year/60,000-mile warranty. The battery also has an outstanding warranty of 10 years or 150,000 miles. No matter where and how you drive, you can rest assured you'll be protected.
 
Conclusion
The Prius remains one of the best cars on the road for environmentally-conscious drivers or simply those looking to maximize their fuel-efficiency. With the 2021 model, you get more space, a bit more power, and loads more add-on options.
