Efficient Design

The 2018 Prius comes as a refreshing change from its predecessors with a bold and sleek design and dramatic aerodynamic styling that promises to impress. This hybrid vehicle features a low and wide stance which adds to its athletic appearance. Moreover, with top-notch 17-inch alloy wheels, the 2018 Prius guarantees improved agility and efficiency.

The car features Bi-LED headlights and taillights, which give a clear view of the road and surroundings. To add to this, the integrated fog and accent lights make the front and back end lighting even more dramatic.

Other features that stand out in its exterior are an active grille shutter, heated side-view mirrors to get rid of fog and snow easily, and color-keyed door handles.

Comfortable Interiors

The Toyota 2018 Prius features a spacious interior no matter which trim you choose and is all about delivering a smooth and comfortable drive. While the base trims feature cloth upholstery, the upper ones come with leatherette. The front seats have deep side bolsters, offering double the comfort. The car also has an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support which enables people to settle into the perfect driving position. When it gets chilly, you can also activate the heated front seats with a click of a button.

Temperature plays an important role in ensuring comfort indoors. The 2018 Prius enables this with the smart-flow climate system, ensuring the interior is neither too hot nor too cold. It also comes with noise-insulation systems, which keeps all the unwanted noise outside.

The 2018 Prius doesn’t disappoint when it comes to cargo space. It offers 27.4 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear and if you ever need more space to store your belongings, the 60/40 split fold-down function of the rear seats makes space for more.

Improved Performance

The Toyota 2018 Prius is extremely fuel efficient and being equipped with the new 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine it proves to be one of the most powerful hybrid vehicles. It delivers 121 horsepower and goes up to 54 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on highways. The gas tank has a fuel capacity of 11.3 gallons.

The Prius is equipped with two different battery packs. The Prius Two runs on a 1.2-kwh nickel-metal-hydride battery and other Prius trims use a 0.75-kwh lithium-ion pack, which is even lighter and more efficient.

Convenient Features
