2021 Toyota Prius Efficiency and Capability

We all know by now that the Prius is an efficient car, and the 2021 model is no different. It can get up to an EPA-estimated 58 city/53 highway MPG when properly equipped.1

It gets this kind of mileage by running on a powertrain that's been built and refined over time for maximum efficiency. The engine is a 1.8L 4-cylinder that produces 96 horsepower. It pairs with a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor that generates 71 horsepower.

The 2021 Prius also makes the Electronic On-Demand Compact All-Wheel Drive (AWD-e) system available. As Maryland drivers ourselves, we know how valuable it is to have a hybrid vehicle that you can drive confidently throughout all four seasons. That's what you get with the AWD-system in this Toyota Hybrid, which is designed to give you 4-wheel traction up to 43 MPH.

Toyota Prius Interior Specs

As a liftback, you can expect the 2021 Prius to offer plenty of cargo space inside the cabin. In fact, it has up to 50.7 cubic feet of total cargo volume. Take a look at the interior dimensions below:

  • Cargo volume with rear seats down: 50.7 cubic feet
  • Cargo volume with rear seats up: 27.4 cubic feet
  • Seating capacity: 5 passengers
  • Passenger volume: 93.1 cubic feet

If you decide to keep your rear seats upright, you'll have enough trunk space for 27.4 cubic feet of cargo while carrying a full car of passengers. As you drive, use the available Premium Audio system with Integrated Navigation to listen to your favorite tunes.

The available Premium Audio system with Integrated Navigation places an 11.6-inch touchscreen in the center stack and is compatible with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity. A 7-inch touchscreen comes standard.

Safety Technology in the 2021 Toyota Prius

For modern drivers, safety is a top concern. As a modern car, the 2021 Toyota Prius takes this seriously, too. That's why it comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) suite of smart safety systems.

TSS 2.0 includes driver-assistive features like:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Road Sign Assist

It also comes standard with Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. This smart cruise control system is highly convenient for anyone who spends a lot of time driving on the highway. It allows you to set a preferred speed and following distance. If you approach slower-moving vehicles on the road, it'll automatically adjust your cruise control speed to go with the flow of traffic.
