What's New For the 2020 Toyota Prius?

For the 2020 model year, the Toyota Prius gets some advancements and improvements in the areas of safety and technology. The latest Prius has some notable differences from the 2019 model year, but it also retains some of its fan-favorite features. This year, Toyota extends its advanced safety technology to the lower-level Prius trims as well. Now, all trims proudly sport the Safety Connect system and Toyota's comprehensive Safety Sense cluster of driver-assist tools.

Even with the base trim, you'll get advanced safety features, including forward-collision avoidance, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, and automatic emergency braking. The upper-level trims get more standard safety features as well, including advanced parking assist sensors with sonar control. Technology also gets a refreshment this year with the inclusion of a larger and more capable infotainment system.

Now, every Prius gets a standard seven-inch infotainment display center with a number of standard amenities that include Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. All-wheel-drive, a recent option for the Prius's drivetrain, is standard on select trim levels this year. All trims are offered in a variety of appealing colors. In 2020, the Toyota Prius retains its exceptional fuel economy ratings and its quiet, smooth ride quality. The Prius still uses a hybrid mechanical system.
