2024 Toyota Prius Review: Specs and Pricing


2024 Toyota Prius

Overview


The Toyota Prius has gotten a makeover! Not only is it still super fuel-efficient (up to 56 mpg on the highway!), but it also finally looks good and is quite fun to drive. This new Prius is available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and it comes with a surprising amount of power (194 horsepower for front-wheel drive, 196 for all-wheel drive). This is a big change for the Prius, which was never known for being stylish or exciting to drive. This move puts the Prius ahead of its competitors, many of which are just now adding hybrid options (like the Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Corolla) with a Honda Civic hybrid on the way.


What has Changed For 2024?


The Toyota Prius has gotten a major makeover for the 2023 model year, and those good looks and fun driving experience carry over unchanged for 2024.


2024 Toyota Prius: Engine and Performance


The redesigned 2024 Toyota Prius carries over its stylish looks and fun driving experience from 2023. It remains super fuel-efficient (up to 56 mpg highway!) and offers two powertrain options. The standard setup is a 194-horsepower hybrid system that combines a 2.0-liter gasoline engine from the Corolla Cross with an electric motor and a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available with a boost to 196 horsepower thanks to an extra electric motor on the rear axle. This new powertrain makes the Prius much quicker, reaching 60 mph in just 7.1 seconds (compared to 10.5 seconds for the previous model) and stopping from 70 mph in a shorter distance too. This puts the Prius ahead of competitors like the Camry Hybrid and Elantra Hybrid in terms of both performance and efficiency.



2024 Toyota Prius: Interior and Comfort


The inside of the new Prius isn't quite as stylish as the outside. Unlike the previous model, the gauges are now behind the steering wheel, but you might have to tilt the wheel down a bit to see them. The roofline is also lower, which means a little less headroom in the back seat. Base models come with a fake leather steering wheel, but if you upgrade to a more expensive trim you'll get heated seats in the front and back, and more cup holders for folks in the back seat.


2024 Toyota Prius: Connectivity


The new Prius comes with bigger and better screens than ever before. The base LE and XLE trims get an 8-inch touchscreen, while the Limited trim gets a whopping 12.3-inch touchscreen (which is also optional on the XLE). This fancy system understands your voice commands and is updated thanks to wireless updates. It also comes with Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and can be equipped with Wi-Fi.


2024 Toyota Prius: Pricing


The 2024 Prius starts at $29,045 and goes up to $36,060 depending on the trim and options you choose.


Which one to Purchase?


The Toyota Prius lives up to its reputation for being super eco-friendly, with amazing gas mileage. It's also packed with safety features, so you can feel confident on the road. Even the base model comes with some nice extras, including 17-inch wheels, blind-spot monitoring to help you see what's next to you, and a surprisingly affordable starting price.
