2021 Toyota Prius: The Ultimate Hybrid Smart Buy

The Toyota Prius, largely known as the first hybrid car to be sold commercially in the United States, has released a new model for 2021. In the nearly 20 years since its initial release in the US and with two million sales in the model’s history, the Prius has become a household name. The 2021 Toyota Prius is sure to sell with the same overwhelming success as its predecessors. It is a well-designed vehicle, with manufacturing focused on comfort as well as safety for its many owners. Truly, the 2021 Toyota Prius is exactly what modern drivers need, a hybrid for the ages.

No longer is this hybrid vehicle only thought of as a car driven by nature-lovers. The 2021 Toyota Prius is more practical than only serving as a simple status symbol for those focused on helping improve the environment. Rather, the car’s hybrid nature has become an accepted fact and additional reason to own one, where it was once the primary reason most would assume might be motivating Prius owners to open their garages. The 2021 Toyota Prius is the perfect fit for nearly anyone, environmental benefits aside. It fits well in so many American homes with its combination of low cost, fuel economy, and reliability.

Low Cost and Economy

With an MSRP of $24,525, the 2021 Toyota Prius remains one of the more affordable hybrids on the automotive market today. Toyota also offers financing for hopeful Prius buyers that have a FICO score of at least 610, among other considerations, including no history of late payments (more than 90 days) and the names of three references. The Prius is a model built to last, so the 2021 model should be seen on the roads and highways for years to come. It also boasts a high resale value. Most Prius engines last for upwards of 300,000 miles. The newest model may well boost that statistic even further, and its battery is meant to last for the life of the vehicle, an improvement over older models that needed occasional battery replacements through the life of the car.

The 2021 Toyota Prius has an EPA estimated 56 MPG average, which ensures that drivers can get to any destination without spending too much of their hard-earned money on fuel. This statistic is helped even more by the Prius’s nature as a hybrid car. The vehicle will switch soundlessly between running off of fuel and the battery as needed during a drive. The battery is capable of self-charging while the car runs. It can also charge through an at-home outlet in an average of five and a half hours or public charging stations in two hours and forty minutes.

Safe Driving Guaranteed

The 2021 Toyota Prius is equipped with all-wheel drive, giving four-wheel traction up to 43 MPH. It comes with fog lights and accent lights to illuminate any road ahead. An 11.6-inch multimedia display syncs with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to connect to either brand of phone, as well as offering a three-month trial of SiriusXM and access to Amazon Alexa for easy hands-free control of music or climate from the driver’s seat. Black chrome accents and brushed aluminum gives the interior a sleek, modern look while the seats and extra legroom guarantee plenty of comfort. The flat-laying back seats have a 60-40 split, allowing space for cargo or passengers, as needed.

More of the 2021 Toyota Prius safety features have become standard, even expected, in most vehicles. With intelligent parking assist and an integrated backup camera, drivers can stay safe in parking lots or on-street parking. The camera and well-placed mirrors grant near 360-degree views around the vehicle with blind-spot monitor alerts on the side mirrors. Pedestrian detection further ensures safety in front of the vehicle. Ten airbags round out the safety features to keep the driver and passengers protected in the event of a collision.

More for Modern Drivers

As if these benefits are not enough, the 2021 Toyota Prius has introduced new features, including a head-up display on the windshield, right in front of the driver, without fully obstructing their view. This display will contain important information that may otherwise escape a distracted driver, such as the car’s current speed, turn by turn directions, or posted speed limit signs one might pass. This ensures less distraction, as it keeps drivers watching the road in front of them. The 2021 Toyota Prius also comes with a pre-collision system that will automatically brake if the driver fails to do so in any situation that could otherwise become dangerous. Vehicle to vehicle distance control works in conjunction with the 2021 Prius’s cruise control to keep a safe distance between cars. Lane tracing assist keeps the vehicle in one lane.

The 2021 model has been further enhanced through the addition of extra legroom, flat-laying back seats to accommodate 50.7 cubic feet of extra cargo, and multiple cup holders to help you get through your morning commute. As the newest to come off of Toyota’s manufacturing line, the 2021 Prius has all the bells and whistles that modern drivers have come to consider as standard. Three USB ports are available in the vehicle. The one in the front seat syncs to the car’s media. Two more, accessible from the backseat, ensure plenty of charging ports to go around.
