2020 Toyota Prius Hybrid
These days, the Prius family includes various models, but the classic Hybrid model is still the most popular one, by far. For more than two decades of production, we have seen four generations of it.
The current model is present on the market since 2015. Therefore, a mid-cycle refresh is something that everyone expects to see in the 2020 Toyota Prius Hybrid. Though it is still early to talk about some more precise details, we are pretty sure that a huge majority of changes will be in terms of aesthetics. On the other side, mechanics and powertrain will definitely remain the same until a complete redesign.
- Spectacular fuel economy
- Hi-quality interior
- Lots of standard equipment
- Spacious cargo area
- Tight rear bench
- Infotainment system can be complicated sometimes
The upcoming update should be a classic facelift. Therefore, count on lots of aesthetical improvements. Of course, the focus will be on the front end. It is hard to predict more precise details but count on areas like headlights, grille, front bumper, and complete front fascia to come with revisions. The rear end has been often criticized, so modifications in this area seem likely as well.
Still, the overall shape and look will definitely remain the same. When it comes to mechanics, the Prius was one of the first models to get the company’s new TNGA platform, which brings lots of improvements in terms of driving experiences. Therefore, don’t count on any important change under the skin.
The interior design also shouldn’t suffer too much. The cabin of the current model looks pretty good and there is really no more important thing to complain about. The overall quality is on a high level. Most materials are soft on touch, while the list of standard equipment is pretty long.
Definitely, something that puts Prius above rivals like Kia Soul, Ford C-Max Hybrid, Chevrolet Volt etc. Also, the cargo area is pretty generous for a compact car. The biggest complaint goes to the rear bench, which doesn’t offer plenty of legroom. If you need something more spacious, go for a new Camry, which offers plenty of legroom, along with spectacular fuel economy.

Things under the hood of 2020 Toyota Prius Hybrid will definitely remain the same. The upcoming model will continue with a familiar configuration, which combines a four-cylinder gasoline engine with a couple of electric motors. A total output goes around 121 horsepower.
Such amount of power won’t give you any spectacular performances for sure but on the other side, fuel economy is amazing. It goes around 54 mpg in the city and 50 mpg on the highway.
