In this 2018 Toyota Prius review, we’ll break down the characteristics of this impressive automobile. Read through the information below and contact us at Ira Toyota of Manchester if you have any questions.
The 2018 Toyota Prius is a great vehicle for those long road trips, as it achieves up to an EPA-estimated 58 city/53 highway MPG.* This is from a combination of a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, two electric motors, and a continuously variable transmission.
There are three different driving modes that’ll help tailor your driving experience. ECO Mode will help maximize fuel economy. EV Mode will let you drive on battery power alone for up to a half mile under certain conditions. POWER Mode will increase throttle response for a more thrilling and spirited ride.
The 4.2-inch color dual Multi-Information Display screens will also help enhance your performance. They’re customizable, so you can easily keep track of information that’s most important to you. This includes real-time driving data, tips to help improve your ECO savings, and more.
The Toyota Prius has lots of technologies in place that go beyond performance. They also help keep you connected, entertained, and safe.
The vehicle comes standard with an Entune™ Audio infotainment system. This comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, 6-speaker sound system, and Bluetooth® technology to stream audio or make hands-free phone calls.
If you upgrade to a higher trim level, you’ll get an integrated navigation system, as well as the Entune® App Suite. The latter lets you listen to music through iHeartRadio®, read reviews on Yelp®, or make dinner reservations on OpenTable®.
Furthermore, the Prius comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). This suite includes many driver-assisting technologies that can help prevent an accident from occurring, such as the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. If the system determines a likely collision with a car or person, it’ll send audio and visual warnings. If you don’t react in time, the system can automatically apply the brakes for you.
Interior Space & Amenities
The 2018 Prius may be a compact car, but it still has lots of room for five people. With 42.3 inches of front legroom, 33.4 inches of rear legroom, and 93.1 cubic feet of passenger volume, you’ll be able to stretch out and get comfortable.
You’ll also get comfortable with the available heated front seats, especially on really cold days. There’s also the standard smart-flow climate control system that helps keep the cabin at an ideal temperature. Plus, this intelligent system allows you to heat or cool just the front passenger area, helping to increase the overall efficiency of the vehicle.
These amenities will help make sure you’re comfy on a long trip with friends or family. With the spacious cargo area, you can bring lots of your personal belongings along for the ride.
You get 27.4 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. If you need even more space, fold that row down to get up to 65.5 cubic feet to work with. Since the back row consists of 60/40 split fold-down rear seats, you can keep one side up to fit items while still leaving room for a backseat passenger.
