Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide variety of options, so you can pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Toyota Prius. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2020 Toyota Prius is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to choose from.
As has been the case for some time, you can get the 2020 Toyota Prius with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a stronger V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Toyota Prius Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Toyota Prius is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Toyota Prius also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Toyota Prius with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Toyota Prius offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you go with one of the upper trim levels. There are many of options to pick from across the way.
The 2020 Toyota Prius is really as competent because they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content makes it supremely easy to drive. If you’re searching for something with a little more class and space than the usual small sedan, the 2020 Toyota Prius might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Toyota Prius is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Toyota Prius Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features found on the upper trim levels may be put into the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Toyota Prius stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is straightforward to fold down to fit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Toyota Prius has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so the front seat do not need to be scooted completely forward.
