2020 Toyota Prius c: Preview & Release Date

, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 22, 2019

Model Preview

The Toyota Prius c is expected to see no major changes for 2020. Toyota hasn't released official specs or pricing yet, but fleet ordering guides reveal the car is due to begin production in July 2019 with a release date sometime in September. As before, we expect the car to remain the most affordable hybrid car in America.

Due in part to low gas prices and a shift in consumer tastes away from fuel-efficient small cars, one might argue that the Prius c struggles to justify its existence in today's Toyota lineup. Although it boasts a low MSRP just over $22,000, newer entrants like the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid offer more space and excellent fuel economy for around $23,000.

Most recently, Toyota cut the number of Prius c variations you could buy in half and raised prices by $900. To make matters worse for buyers, dealers rarely stock the car due to poor demand. Despite enjoying lackluster sales, discounts on the Prius c tend to be unimpressive, especially when it comes to leasing.

With the Corolla set to receive a redesign and a highly fuel-efficient hybrid variant, it's clear that Toyota hasn't given up on cars. However, we'd argue that the future of the Prius c could be in doubt. For now, the car will continue to appeal to buyers looking for an affordable hybrid that's easy to drive in city settings.

This page will be updated as info becomes available.
