2021 Toyota Prius is a trendy car made in Toyota and a continuation of one of the most popular electric vehicle on the market nowadays. They have not replaced the name “electric” from their name, and this time it is even more attractive and modern in design.
- The model has a handy and practical engine.
- There is a cozy and comfortable cabin.
- The car is still ugly for average buyers.
- There are no changes in the strength and speed of the engine.
There are no significant changes in the design of 2021 Toyota Prius from the last year. The lower front end could be high for driving in every weather circumstances, but still suitable for city driving. Although they have dropped the famous egg-like shape and design, they even have not changed the almost ugly design of the car.
It especially is visible on the sides, where are few unexplained lines and curves. However, it has retained the design of the small, but attractive car, with useful additions and details. This time it has almost the lines as Honda Insight, especially looking from the front end.
The cabin in 2021 Toyota Prius is large enough for five passengers and a little cargo, so maybe it is not the right choice for the families. However, the cabin is very friendly and cozy, with quality plastic and good seats and a lot of space for the legs.
The manufacturer has not saved effort to make elegant and well-equipped interior, with high devices and technology. When it comes to technology, they have placed a sizeable 7-inch touchscreen and numerous commands and tools.
2021 Toyota Prius Engine
There are no changes or surprises with the engine that 2021 Toyota Prius will use. It is a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder paired with the CVT transmission. We used an electric motor in Prius, and they will use the best in class this time with 56 mpg combined. However, they have another version, called Prime, with the electric engine as a combination for driving 25 miles on electric battery only.
However, the strength of the engine is only 95 horsepower, while the Prime version has 121 horsepower. So, do not expect a much stronger city model from Toyota in the future, especially with the increase in weight for 150 pounds. On the other hand, the model is mostly made for city driving and everyday usage. Thanks to the small size, it is handy and very good controlled in driving.
