2020 Toyota Prius Prime for Sale in Smithfield, RI
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word hybrid? If you’re like most Americans, a picture of the Toyota Prius might pop into your head. It is, after all, the icon among all gas-electric vehicles. But as great as the Toyota Prius has been for more than two decades (and still is), the Prius Prime offers another eco-friendly alternative as a plug-in hybrid that gives drivers up to 25 all-electric miles of driving. New for this model year, Toyota has addressed some key issues from the outgoing model, too, like including a rear bench seat to seat five passengers and adding Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2020 Prius Prime is sold in three trim levels: LE, XLE, and Limited. The powertrain system is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine joined to a plug-in hybrid motor and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (ECVT). From full charge, the system delivers a combined 133 MPGe; after the electric charge runs out, the hybrid system still returns outstanding fuel economy of 55 mpg around town and 53 mpg on the highway. To reach full charge, you’ll need to wait about 5.5 hours with a standard outlet, but with a 240-volt outlet (commonly found at public charging stations), it should only take about 2 hours. The EPA estimates the 2020 Prius Prime’s full driving range (that’s a full charge with a full gas tank) at 640 miles.
Comfort and Convenience
The base LE receives LED headlights, heated side mirrors, smart-flow climate control, a rearview camera, 60/40 split fold-down rear seats, a SofTex-trimmed steering wheel, and keyless entry with push-button ignition. The XLE adds a predictive fuel-efficient drive mode selector, SofTex-trimmed heated front seats, remote illuminated entry, and a wireless smartphone charger. At the top of the heap, the Limited provides LED fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, a heated steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a cargo area cover.
Safety and Technology
Every 2020 Prius Prime comes with the Toyota Safety Sense suite of active safety technologies. This includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, and full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control. Also, although the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has yet to test the 2020 Prius Prime for its overall safety, the organization named it a Top Safety Pick in 2019, and the 2020 test should show similar results.
The LE gets a multimedia setup with a 7-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa, two USB data ports, advanced voice recognition, satellite radio, and Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming. The XLE is enhanced with an 11.6-inch touchscreen with integrated navigation, a premium six-speaker audio system, and HD radio. Opt for the Limited and you’ll enjoy a ten-speaker JBL audio system.
