Though the Toyota Prius has been in existence for two decades, only the fourth generation (latest) has made it to our shores. The Prius globally is renowned as an efficient and practical car for the environmentally conscious. Unique looking, cutting-edge, and futuristic is what comes to mind when one sets eyes upon the Prius. Somehow this does not look like a very harmonious design, and all those lines and creases make the design look too busy.
The interiors though are certainly space-age, and look smart and futuristic and there are no physical dials in here, it is all digital and really modern. The use of white glossy plastic and piano black finish accentuate the simple yet elegant interior design theme.
The Prius is not a plug-in hybrid and hence does not require to be charged every time before taking it for a spin. The engine charges the batteries while on the run, and the batteries power the electric motor to minimize fuel consumption and emissions. There is a 4-cylinder 1.8L VVT-i which puts out a measly 97HP and 142NM of torque. But there is also an electric motor that is rated at 71HP and 163NM. Don’t get too excited though, as even under full throttle, the combined power generated by the gasoline engine and the motor together is capped at 121HP. A smooth CVT does transmission duties on the Prius to keep with the calm and composed eco-conscious nature of the Prius – until you put your right foot down. With full throttle, the CVT makes the engine sound thrashed and near its limit.
The Prius comes in two variants – Eco and Iconic, both of which come with impressive safety features as standard. Dual front airbags, along with side, curtain and driver knee airbags, ABS with EBD and braking assist, ESP, blind spot monitoring, ISO-fix for child seats, rear parking sensors with camera, tire pressure warning and cruise control are all standard. Even convenience features like the Auto AC, smart keyless entry with push start, LED DRLs and headlamps, 6-speaker JBL powered audio system with navigation are all standard. What the Iconic model offers in addition are few luxury features like leather seats, head-up display and wireless charger.
