If you love driving down the open highways of Lowell, Dracut, and Tewksbury, then you need a car that can go the distance. The Toyota Prius is one such car, and we’re here to tell you all about it.
In this 2018 Toyota Prius review, we’ll go over the performance, interior, and safety features that are found in this automobile. Learn all about the car below, and contact us at Ira Toyota of Tewksbury if you have any questions.
The 2018 Toyota Prius is known for being highly fuel-efficient. In fact, it can achieve up to an EPA-estimated 58 city/53 highway MPG.* This is when the vehicle is equipped with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, permanent magnet AC synchronous motor, and lithium-ion battery.
Plus, the car’s design improves its performance. For instance, it has a double-wishbone style multi-link rear suspension that gives the Prius a smooth ride and responsive handling. It also has a strong-rigid chassis that makes the ride more comfortable, along with enhancing handling and braking performance. Also, the rear spoiler helps cut out turbulent winds, making for a quieter and more efficient drive.
The Toyota Prius has a refined and modern interior, with soft-touch surfaces and a solid fit and finish. The front bucket seats have deep side bolsters to add comfort on long drives. Plus, with the available 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, it’s easy to get in that perfect position behind the wheel.
The smartly designed interior gives five people plenty of room to stretch out. It has 42.3 inches of front legroom, 33.4 inches of rear legroom, and 93.1 cubic feet of passenger volume.
There’s also lots of space for shopping bags, camping gear, and other personal belongings. You get 27.4 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. Fold one side of the 60/40 split rear seats down, and you can fit more items while still leaving room for a backseat passenger. Fold both sides down, and the cargo space expands to 65.5 cubic feet.
Advanced Safety Features
The 2018 Toyota Prius comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) to help keep you safe on the road. This suite of driver-assisting technologies was designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving.
One of the features included in TSS-P is the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. This uses an in-vehicle camera and radar to spot a car or person in front of you. If it detects a frontal collision, it’ll send visual and audible alerts. If you don’t react in time, the system can automatically apply the brakes for you.
The Prius also has an available Blind Spot Monitor. If a vehicle is coming up in your blind spot, an icon will light up on the appropriate side mirror. This will help you determine when it’s safe to switch lanes.
