Chances are good you already know the Prius name. It’s often what comes to mind first when you see the phrase “hybrid car,” and it continues to push what is possible with hybrid powertrains and high fuel efficiency. The 2021 Toyota Prius in San Francisco, CA is an ideal car for families and single drivers alike.
Whether you are driving to work or to class, your bank account will appreciate the maximum 58 city and 53 highway miles per gallon in the base L Eco model, and the comparable fuel economy numbers throughout the rest of the trims: LE, LE AWD-e, XLE, XLE AWD-e, 2020 Edition, and Limited. To clarify, the 2020 Edition is in fact a 2021 model, however, it is named as such to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Prius. And your eyes do not deceive you—you can get all-wheel drive variants of the 2021 Prius; that kind of drivetrain isn’t just for trucks, SUVs, and race cars anymore!
Given that the Prius is known for helping to revolutionize the automotive industry at the turn of the century, it makes sense that it also happens to be loaded with the kinds of technology features that people hadn’t even imagined possible until recently.
A standard seven-inch touchscreen puts such features as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, among others, at your fingertips. If you opt for the Limited trim, however, you’ll get the impressive 11.6-inch touchscreen with a split-screen display and navigation, plus 10 JBL® speakers with an amplifier to make your tunes sound crisper. Amazon Alexa functionality comes standard, so you can sync up your Amazon account and take advantage of certain Alexa features while driving the Prius.
Safety is another priority, and the 2021 Toyota Prius comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0. This suite of smart driver-assistance technology includes the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, Automatic High Beams, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Road Sign Assist.
