2020 Toyota Prius Prime Review
Years ago, Toyota changed the automotive world when they first introduced the iconic Prius. Fast forward to the present, they continue to be at the forefront of innovation, especially when it comes to making eco-friendly vehicles to drive in San Diego, and around Chula Vista and El Cajon.
This is evident with their 2020 Toyota Prius Prime , the plug-in version of their popular Toyota hybrid. Check out how efficient and fun your drive will be in this car with our Norm Reeves Toyota San Diego review of the 2020 Prius Prime below.
How the Prius Prime Is Powered
What makes the Toyota Prius Prime go when you push your foot on the accelerator? Under the hood is a dual-motor drive system of both a battery for electrical power and a gas engine.
This combination is used to give you extremely efficient driving and the strength needed to quickly get up to highway speed. The 2020 Prius Prime can also automatically switch between the two power sources based on driving conditions.
Helping the Environment and Your Wallet
Thanks to its powertrain, the Toyota Prius Prime is able to get the most out of each tank of gas you use. It gets an EPA-estimated 55 city/53 highway MPG. 1
You’ll even be able to switch to EV Mode and drive just off electric power for up to 25 miles, allowing you to conserve fuel even more. 2 With an EPA-estimated total driving range of 640 miles, frequent stops to the gas station will be a thing of the past! 3
More Innovation Inside the Prius Prime
The advancements aren’t just added to the powertrain of this Toyota hybrid. Inside, the 2020 Toyota Prius Prime also has the latest technology features. The center of all the action is a 7-inch touchscreen display that houses the Audio Plus multimedia system.
With this system, you can connect to your smartphone and play music through the 6-speaker sound system. You’ll even be able to make phone calls with just your voice, so you can remain focused on the road ahead.
Also use your voice and ask Amazon Alexa to play a certain band, give you a weather update, or even turn off any of your smart-home devices you accidently left on in your house. You can also upgrade the display to a large, 11.6-inch touchscreen for an even clearer view and more user-friendly control of the various settings of the multimedia system.
A Safe Commute in the Toyota Prius Prime
While cruising around in the Prius Prime, you’ll also have the peace of mind that the car will be ready to help you when the extra assistance is needed. That’s because it comes equipped with the safety features of Toyota Safety Sense™ P.
With this, the 2020 Prius Prime can help you quickly stop to avoid an accident, keep you within the center of your lane, and automatically turn your high beams on when needed.
