Expert's Rating

Not Available

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.

What you must know before buying the Toyota Prius

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - October 4, 2019
  • 2020 Prius is here
  • Rebate: Up to $2,000 off
  • Finance: 1.9% APR
  • Lease: From $249/mo.

Model year overlap:

The 2019 Toyota Prius is in stock with some big updates. The first update is the elimination of the Prius' numbered trim levels and replacing them with L Eco, LE, XLE, and Limited grades. The 2019 Prius has updated styling that tones down its wild looks and available electronic all-wheel drive.

The carryover 2020 Toyota Prius is in showrooms now, but there are no offers enticing buyers to choose it over the 2019 Prius.

The Prius has been a slow seller for a variety of reasons, but one culprit has been its outrageously expensive promotional lease that ranked as one of the worst values for a hybrid. Toyota has shifted its offers in recent months, but nothing has made a big impact.

All-wheel drive is available on the LE and XLE models for just $1,400 and $1,000 premiums, respectively. These premiums put the 2019 Prius LE AWD-e and XLE AWD-e models' pricing at $27,300 and $29,740 (destination fees included), respectively.

Toyota's deals are regional and expire on November 4, 2019. All deals mentioned here are for Southern California.

Cash incentive remains:

Toyota has bumped its cash rebate on the 2019 Prius to $2,000 in September to help spur its lagging sales, and it remains in October. Buyers cannot combine this with the low APR offers below.

There are no special cash incentives on the 2020 Toyota Prius.

Expecting to graduate soon? Be sure to ask about the Toyota College Graduate Finance Program. When financing through Toyota, new grads are eligible for a $750 rebate.

APR deal for 2020 Prius:

The 2019 Prius continues with its 60-month financing at 1.9% APR. Need more time? Get 2.9% financing for 72 months on the 2019 Prius.

The 2020 Prius debuts with 2.9% APR for up to 60 months.

Lease from $249/mo.:

The 2019 Toyota Prius L's 36-month lease offer runs $249 per month with $1,999 due at signing (12,000 miles per year).

With a $305 effective monthly cost, this is not a good value relative to its MSRP.

2020 Toyota Prius: Preview & Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 24, 2019

Model Preview

For 2019, the Toyota Prius went through a significant refresh that brought in more toned-down front and rear ends to help tame its polarizing looks and addition tech features inside. While these changes were welcome, the big news was the all-new Prius AWD-e model with all-wheel drive. With these changes still fresh, we expect no big changes to the 2020 Toyota Prius.

The Toyota Prius went through a huge redesign in 2016, but its wild looks arrived to modest reviews at best. In 2019, Toyota revealed an updated Prius with revised taillights and headlights that lacked the dramatic swoops that accentuated the already over-the-top looks. With this new, more toned-down design still fresh and receiving warmer reviews, we expect no changes to the 2020 Toyota Prius’ appearance.

Inside, the Prius’ 2016 redesign included gloss-white accents around the steering wheel and center console that were scratch magnets, but the cabin was otherwise a good design. In 2019, Toyota ditched the white accents in favor of more scratch-resistant piano-black accents. This refresh also brought in two more 2.1-amp USB chargers, a larger wireless charging pad, and a heated steering wheel on XLE and higher trims. We expect all these changes to remain the same in the 2020 Toyota Prius.

Under its hood, we expect the 2020 Toyota Prius to retain the same powertrain options as the 2019 model. This will include a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that will combine for 121 horsepower. In the standard Prius models, all the power will head to the front wheels, but the AWD-e model will boast a rear-axle-mounted 7-hp electric motor that will deliver extra traction from 0 to 6 mph. This system can also chime in at speeds up to 43 mph for as-needed traction.

2019 Toyota Prius

Safety has been a focus for Toyota lately, and the current Prius is no exception with its standard Toyota Safety Sense P, which includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, and more. We’re still waiting on crash test data on the 2019 Prius, but the 2018 model was an IIHS Top Safety Pick, and we expect the same for the 2020 Toyota Prius.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 Toyota Prius, but we expect production to kick off in August 2019, leading to an October release.

With no changes expected, we anticipate the 2020 Toyota Prius’ pricing to remain similar to the 2019 model’s MSRP range of $24,700 to $29,750 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Toyota Prius will compete with the Honda Insight, Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid and Kia Niro.
