Toyota Prius Engine

If you're considering a hybrid car, then you're probably looking for an efficient ride that'll cut down on your visits to the pump. That's exactly what you'll get with the 2020 Prius.

Its powertrain consists of two parts: a motor and engine. The engine is a 1.8L 4-cylinder that generates 96 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. It also has a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor that produces 71 horsepower and 120 lb-ft of torque.

Together, the hybrid powertrain has an output of 121 horsepower.

Toyota Prius Efficiency

The powertrain in the 2020 Prius works with an Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission and a lightweight front-wheel drive system to help boost your fuel efficiency to an EPA-estimated 58 MPG city and 53 MPG highway with the L Eco trim level.1

The vehicle has an available all-wheel drive system, as well, which is a big hit among drivers in our area who commute to work during snowy winters. With that drivetrain, the Prius gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 52 MPG city and 48 MPG highway.2

Prius Interior

Next, let's take a look inside the cabin of this popular hybrid hatchback. As a hatchback, you can expect it to offer plenty of interior space. In fact, when you fold down the second-row seats, you get a total cargo volume of 27.4 cubic feet.

You can keep those seats upright and accommodate five passengers in a total passenger volume of 93.1 cubic feet. This passenger volume includes the following interior dimensions:

  • Headroom (front/rear): 39.4 inches/37.4 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 42.3 inches/33.4 inches

Toyota Prius Technology

While everyone is stretching out and getting comfortable, you can play some tunes through the standard 6-speaker audio system. You'll then be able to change the song via a 7-inch touchscreen display or voice command.

Bluetooth® wireless technology comes standard, as does Apple CarPlay® and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Apple CarPlay® allows you to access optimized apps through your touchscreen display, including navigation, audio books, internet radio streaming, and phone contacts.

If you want even more from your infotainment system, you can go for the available Premium Audio system with Integrated Navigation. This gives you an 11.6-inch touchscreen display with split-screen capability. It also has a built-in navigation system that's fully integrated with your vehicle.

This system improves your road trip sing-alongs, too, with its 10-speaker sound system.
