2018 Toyota Prius: Still the Granddaddy

Published on June 29 2018

It’s truly incredible to think that this fuel-efficient hybrid vehicle first appeared on roads over 20 years ago. There’s no denying that in that time, the Toyota Prius has become and will forever be the granddaddy of all hybrids and EVs. And despite its “advanced” age, the latest generation of Prius is far from long in the tooth.

This current version of the Toyota Prius appeared just a few short years ago, and when it did, it shocked the car world with its modern edgy design, both inside and out. The 2018 Toyota Prius sports a unique, somewhat polarizing, look that definitely gets attention on the road. Sporting elongated headlights with sharp edges and lines, the overall exterior look of the Prius ensures its look is one that creates a buzz, in all the right ways. In the back, the dual-pane rear hatch design remains, but has been updated to provide better visibility out the rear for the driver.

Inside the 2018 Toyota Prius, you’ll find a comfortable and efficient interior. Heated seats are available, and there’s a standard 6.1” colour touchscreen (optional 7” available) to control all infotainment and navigation. Just as in previous models, you won’t find a gauge cluster behind the steering wheel. Instead, all driver information is stored in the centre stack just above the main screen.

No matter which 2018 Toyota Prius model you choose, beneath the newly sculpted hood you’ll find a 1.8L 4-cylinder with a Hybrid Synergy Drive Atkinson Cycle 60kWh battery that allows for full EV mode (for short ranges and at lower speeds), and has a net power rating of 121 horsepower. If you ‘re looking for more EV drive time, you’ll want to opt for the Prius Prime that boasts a larger battery and about 40km of full-battery range. However, the non-Prime version will see fuel efficiency ratings in the 4L/100km range, which is equally.
