2019 TOYOTA PRIUS
The Toyota Prius is Toyota’s ever-popular hybrid vehicle, bagging the title of being the 3rd best-selling car line in the world. The Prius was launched in the Philippines in 2009, making it the first hybrid vehicle in the country. The market for hybrid vehicles in the country isn’t all that huge, due to Filipinos mostly sticking to well-known vehicles like the Toyota Vios. But in reality, the Vios is less fuel efficient, consuming around 23 km/L as opposed to the Prius’ 27 km/L.
The Toyota Prius is available in one variant, a 1.8-liter Hybrid Synergy Drive VVT-i Four-Cylinder engine that makes around 72 hp and has 142 Nm of torque. It’s mated to an Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and starts at around P2,249,000, with a P 15,000 extra if you opt for the White Pearl body color.
The styling of the Prius has been controversial ever since it was first released. The unique edges of the headlight and the split-window on the rear hatch may take some getting used to, especially if you’re used to seeing conventional sedan-type vehicles on the road. The Prius measures 4,480 mm long, 1,745 mm wide, and 1,480 mm high.
The interior of the Prius is stylish and futuristic, featuring white and black colors to make the cabin look sophisticated. The Prius comes with a leather-lined three-spoke steering wheel with easy-access audio buttons, a multimedia LCD screen, and a fully-digital gauge cluster screen. The seats are wrapped in leather, and the front seats offer lumbar support.
The safety tech features of the Prius include dual front, curtain, and driver knee airbags. There’s also a great parking assist feature called the Intelligent Clearance Sonar which scans stationary objects in your surroundings, as well as the Intelligent Parking Assist which automatically guides your vehicle into a vacant parking space.
The Toyota Prius is powered by a 1.8-liter Hybrid Synergy Drive, Variable Valve Timing – Intelligent, Four-Cylinder In line DOHC, 16-Valve engine that makes 72 hp and 142 Nm of torque. It comes with an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT) with ECO and EV Mode Settings.
The Toyota Prius is available in five exterior colors: (1) Silver Metallic, (2) Super White, (3) Emotional Red, (4) Dark Blue Mica Metallic, and (5) White Pearl.
