Even if we can’t yet provide a definitive 2020 Toyota Prius release date, we expect production for this perennially popular hybrid vehicle to start during summer 2019 for a long-awaited release sometime during the middle of fall. With the latest Prius iteration so close at hand, eco-conscious drivers have been clamoring for the latest news.

That’s why we put together this convenient overview of anticipated:

  • 2020 Toyota Prius Styling
  • 2020 Toyota Prius Performance and Efficiency
  • 2020 Toyota Prius Technology

2020 Toyota Prius Styling

The Toyota Prius just went through an extensive refresh for the 2019 model, so we expect the same standout looks to be turning heads while you cruise between West Hollywood and Los Angeles or zip through North Hollywood when the 2020 model comes out.

The latest generation offers revised taillights and headlights, a lower, wider stance, and sharper lines. One the inside, gloss white accents were replaced by piano black to create a more upscale aesthetic.

2020 Toyota Prius Performance and Efficiency

Drivers are naturally curious about how the upcoming Toyota Prius will drive. We expect it to retain the current powertrain, which combines a 1.8L four-cylinder engine with an electric motor to deliver:

  • Up to 121 hp combined
  • Up to an EPA-esteemed 58 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway.

The available AWD-e model boasts traction and low-speed acceleration.

2020 Toyota Prius Technology

The current 2019 Toyota Prius delivered several feature upgrades, including two additional 2.1-amp USB chargers, a larger wireless charging pad, and an available heated steering wheel on the XLE trim and higher. It also features the following Toyota Safety Sense™ features as standard:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)
  • Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

Automotive insiders expect the 2020 Toyota Prius to continue with that feature setup and possibly provide a few feature upgrades of its own.
