What's New For the 2019 Toyota Prius?

When shopping for a new vehicle, a lot of us favor something practical and functional over a more high-end, luxury model. Toyota is a brand that the average person knows they can trust in terms of performance and endurance, and the new Prius is no exception. While a hybrid car may not be the first vehicle we think of when weathering elements such as drastic heat, rain, or snow, the new Prius model is looking to change that. This vehicle prides itself on its ability to perform on a variety of terrain, as well as drastic climate changes. With a new exterior design and a number of technical specs added to the interior, this car promises to be a new favorite for the avid traveler.


2019 Toyota Prius Interior

2019 Prius Trims & Features

The design of this new Prius is drastically different in comparison to the previous models. Toyota decided to do away with an angular design this time around, opting for a smoother, more organic feel in the design of the front end and the headlights. The tail lights feature a more compact, horizontal design that makes the shape of the car a little less clunky. People are sure to be pleased with the Prius's new interior as it does away with the stark white plastic in favor of a sleeker, glossy black. A noticeable difference with this model is the use of space. Many of the buttons have been repositioned for better access and more USB ports have been added, something that was a common complaint from previous Toyota fans. The trim types for the new Prius will now be L-Eco, LE, XLE, and Limited. All-wheel drive will be offered on the LE and XLE models, but not on the more expensive trims. This model offers a reasonable amount of technical specs without being excessive, such as a Navigation System, Automatic Temperature Control, a Rear Camera, and a split folding rear seat. This is a great practical design that is simplistic yet multi-functional.

Anyone who may be feeling underwhelmed by the design choices for this new model surely cannot argue that the efficiency and speed offered in this car more than make up for the visuals.
