2018 Toyota Prius


The 2018 Toyota Prius is still the leader of the (hybrid) pack

The Toyota Prius set the standard for hybrid vehicles and it hasn't let its age get to it, nor has it rested on its laurels. Whether it's about the environment or concerns over fuel costs, this hybrid is still a favorite for conscious drivers who want to go the distance. Today we'll look at what the 2018 Toyota Prius brings to the table and why you should drive home in one.

Range & Style

The Toyota Prius has a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with Hybrid Synergy Drive®. Estimates place the mpg ratings at 54 in the city and 50 on the highway, so you'll be flying past gas station after gas station.

The exterior look of the Prius is still familiar, but it's got some sedan-esque vibes these days. We think this balance of futuristic and contemporary styling make it appealing to a wider buyer base, and the more people behind the wheel of the Prius, the better. Regardless if you go with cloth or SofTex® materials for the interior design, you'll get a sophisticated interior that'll surprise passengers who might think the Prius is just a "crunchy" option.

Safety Technology

Toyota takes safety seriously, and they've made that clear by giving all the Prius trims standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). This package of advanced technologies includes: 

  • Lane Departure Alert w/ Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Pre-Collision Alert w/Pedestrian Detection
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Other standout safety technologies you can get with select trims or packages include Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, a heads-up display, and Safety Connect. Even if you're a great driver, it's never had to have some backup, just in case.


Convenience Amenities

The Toyota Prius is available in the following trims: ONE, TWO, TWO Eco, THREE, THREE Touring, FOUR, and FOUR Touring. All trims come standard with LED taillamps, daytime running lights, and Bi-LED low and high beam headlights for better visibility. There's also a backup camera, 6.1-inch touchscreen, smart key with push button start, and 8 airbags.

Amenities as you move up the trim level include a larger touchscreen with navigation, premium speakers, moonroof, SofTex® seats, fog lights, and flashier wheels. Our inventory at our Westminster, MD dealership is constantly changing, but it's safe to say the TWO trim, with its additional advanced safety features and approachable price point, is our most popular choice.
