Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2018 Toyota Prius OVERVIEW

The Toyota Prius wasn't the first hybrid in the world, but it's arguably been the most popular, emphasizing its eco-friendliness with an advanced powertrain and aerodynamic styling. Roughly 20 years later, the Prius competes in a crowded segment, but manages to stand out with its spacious interior and fuel economy figures, while its dramatic styling ensures the Prius is still an easily recognizable car on the road.

What's New for 2018

Changes for the 2018 Toyota Prius are minimal. The large 11.6-inch HD Multimedia Display is now standard on the range-topping Prius Four and Prius Four Touring trims.

Choosing Your Toyota Prius

Power for the Prius continues to come from a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 95 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. Two electric motors and a lithium-ion battery pack are on hand, boosting output to a combined 121 hp. Power is put down through the front wheels via an electric continuously variable automatic transmission.

The Prius has always put fuel efficiency first, and the 2018 model doesn’t disappoint. The Prius lineup is capable of netting 54 miles per gallon in the city and 50 mpg on the highway, which results in a combined rating of 52 mpg. The Prius Two Eco is even more fuel efficient thanks to a few upgrades.

The Two Eco benefits from the lithium-ion battery pack from higher-trim levels instead of a Nickel-Metal Hydride unit and a tire-inflator kit that replaces the spare tire. These changes result in a weight savings of 65 pounds over the regular Prius Two. The Two Eco also gets special Dunlop low-rolling-resistance tires. The changes may not sound revolutionary, but they allow the trim to get 58 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway, resulting in a combined rating of 56 mpg. Those figures make the Prius one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the road, only trailing behind the Hyundai Ioniq.

The Prius’ design is definitely an interesting one, but the liftback blueprint results in an ample amount trunk, with a cargo volume of 24.6 cubic feet. The low rear bumper and large opening also make loading cargo into the vehicle a breeze.

There are seven Prius trims to choose from:

One

The Prius One costs $24,370 (including an $895 destination charge). Standard exterior features include LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights, heated exterior mirrors, and 15-inch wheel covers. The interior of the hybrid comes with a smart-flow climate control system, an integrated backup camera, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Siri Eyes Free (although not Apple CarPlay or Android Auto), fabric upholstery, push-button start, a Smart Key System, and power windows and door locks.

There are no available packages for the Prius One.

Two

The Prius Two carries a price tag of $25,580 and adds two-tone wheel covers, a rear window wiper, fabric-trimmed front seats with seatback pockets as standard. The only available package for the Two trim is the Safety Plus Package with options, which is a no-cost addition. The Package adds blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as parking sensors.

Two Eco

The Prius Two Eco is the most fuel-efficient model out of the Prius lineup and starts at $26,060. The trim adds auto on/off headlights and remote illuminated entry over lower trims. There are no available packages for the Two Eco trim.

Three

The Prius Three starts at $27,630 and comes with a seven-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, navigation, Entune App Suite, a faux leather-trimmed steering wheel, a black center console, a tonneau cover for the cargo area, and a Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charge pad as standard.

Available packages for the trim include the Safety Plus Package and the Advanced Technology Package with options ($1,350). The latter brings a color head-up display and a power moonroof to the vehicle.

Three Touring

The Prius Three Touring brings some more exteriors features to the hybrid and costs $29,010. The trim comes with integrated fog lights with LED accent lights, 17-inch five-spoke wheels, a unique rear bumper treatment, and SofTex-trimmed seats as standard.

The Three Touring trim adds the Appearance Package with options ($1,540), which outfits the Prius in gunmetal wheel inserts and two-tone front and rear bumpers. It joins the Safety Plus Package, which is still a no-cost feature.

Four

The Prius Four costs $30,580 adds rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated front seats, and a blind spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert as standard. As previously mentioned, it also adds an 11.6-inch display, as well as Toyota's Entune infotainment suite with navigation.

Two versions of the Advanced Technology Package are available, with the first starting at $1,350 and including a color head-up display and a power moonroof. The second option is priced at $2,555 and brings all of the features from the cheaper package, but adds Toyota Safety Connect – a safety-focused telematics suite that can alert emergency services in the event of a wreck or track a vehicle if it's stolen – and a JBL audio system.

Four Touring

The Prius Four Touring is the range-topping trim and has a price tag of $31,460. The main difference between this and the standard Prius Four are its extra available packages and its different rear bumper treatment.

The Premium Convenience Package with options costs $1,205 and essentially takes the place of the Advanced Technology Package, adding Toyota Safety Connect and a JBL audio system. The Appearance Package with options ($2,745) includes the appearance package, the complimentary safety plus package 2, and the premium convenience package.

CarsDirect Tip

With the addition of active-safety features to the Prius’ list of standard features last year, going with lower-end trims is more attractive than ever. The Prius Two Eco is the most fuel-efficient of the bunch and is just $480 more than the standard Two, making it the trim to opt for. Consumers wanting some more tech features can opt for the higher trims, which brings the ability to add interesting external design cues as part of packages.
