What's New For the 2020 Toyota Prius?

The 2020 Toyota Prius arrives on the auto scene this year with more standard safety technology and interior amenities than before. Now, the Toyota Prius gets more driver-assist safety aids through the Toyota Safety Sense package of amenities. This comprehensive package includes forward-collision warning, lane-keep assist, and lane departure warning at a minimum. Additional advanced driver-assist aids, including blind-spot monitoring, are standard or available at the higher-level trims.

For the first time, all trim levels of the Prius now also get a standard seven-inch infotainment system that has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Amazon Alexa is included for the first time, too. The Prius also carries over many notable features from the previous model year. This consists of a hushed cabin that keeps noise from even the busiest roads at bay. The Prius also has oversized windows and a large windshield that provide exceptional outward visibility. The Toyota Prius still has an impressive class-leading fuel economy as well.
