After all these years, the Toyota Prius remains one of the more affordable options for consumers who want to a) spend less at the pump, b) leave a smaller ecological footprint and c) benefit from a reputation for reliability that is still, by and large, unmatched in the industry. This is one resilient model, when you consider that changes happen at lightning-speed in the electric mobility segment these days (just ask the Nissan LEAF).
That said, like any model after a certain number of years, the Prius has started to look its age just a little. For 2020, Toyota decided to dab the Prime version of the model with a little bit of Grecian Formula here and there.
You could actually argue it’s more than just a ‘little bit’. It’s not insignificant, for example, that the second-row seating has been reconfigured so the Prius Prime can accommodate three passengers instead of two. No more leaving your least-loved child at home.
