Expert Rating

2.6 (Fair)
48 City / 43 Highway

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.

2019 Toyota Prius c OVERVIEW

The Toyota Prius c continues to offer energy-conscious consumers a good bang for their e-buck. The 2019 Toyota Prius c arrives at dealerships with two trim options for consumers to configure. Not known for its record-setting acceleration, this fuel-sipper continues to be an exceptional choice for commuters or those looking to stretch their driving dollar.

What's New for 2019

Choosing Your Toyota Prius c

While its hybrid powerplant is a technologically complex, the Prius c is one of the easiest vehicles to configure. Toyota offers the Prius c in two trims: the base L or upgraded LE. Power for each is derived from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline-powered engine combined with an electric motor. Together, this hybrid powerplant produces 99 horsepower that applies power to the front wheels via a continuously variable transmission. According to EPA estimates, the Prius c returns a stellar 48 miles per gallon in the city, 43 mpg on the highway, and 46 combined.


The base 2019 Toyota Prius c is the L which starts at $22,450 (all prices include the $920 destination charge). Like most Prius models, the key is its fuel-efficient powertrain. However, it’s packed with a Toyota Safety Sense suite of active safety features. Toyota Safety Sense brings forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.

An integrated backup camera is displayed on a 3.5-inch infotainment screen, which also acts as a multi-information display. The L also includes automatic climate control, 15-inch alloy-wheels, Toyota's Entune Audio system, and is available in seven exterior colors, though only one interior pattern is available. There are no package upgrades available with 2019 Toyota Prius c, but there's a slew of dealer available accessories.


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.

CarsDirect Tip

There really isn’t much we can add here. If you’re in the market for an affordable daily-driver without a ton of flair, the 2019 Toyota Prius c is a great option. The extra $1,425 for the LE is money well spent.
