2019 Toyota Prius c Hatchback : Urban attitude
November 08 2018,
Like a good partner, the Toyota Prius c is always at the ready to get you going. Affordable, stylish and easy to live with, the smallest member of the Prius family, the Prius c is only compact on the outside so don’t judge it by its size – you wouldn't judge Yoda, now would you?
Efficient to the last
The 2019 Toyota Prius c is not mighty in the conventional sense as it will not set any land-speed records. It will, however, impress with its unbelievable fuel-efficiency. The Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine will cover 100km with no more than 5-litres of fuel. Thanks to its low weight and 99-horsepower, it turns out to be zippy, and quite fun to drive as well.
Compact for the city
The upside to the 2019 Toyota Prius c’s diminutive outer dimensions is that you’ll manage to get around no matter how congested city roads get. Parking spots will be easier to come by, and easier to slide into thanks to the standard rear-view camera. Being a hybrid, the Prius c is able to crawl about on battery power for a short while without ever consuming a drop a fuel.
Spacious for you
Compared to a number of its competitors, the Prius c offers up a larger interior and trunk for all your friends, and your gear. The Prius c will not only carry five but will do it in an entertaining and safe manner.
Safety and technology
All 2019 Prius c feature Toyota Safety Sense as standard. Included elements are Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert and Auto High Beam Assist. The Star Safety System is also integrated and incorporates the likes of Smart Stop Technology, Vehicle Stability Control and more.
Connectivity-wise, the 2019 Prius c throws in a 4.2-inch TFT Multi Information Display, Bluetooth, a 6.1-inch display and advanced voice recognition. Opting for the Technology trim, niceties like Display Audio with Navigation, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Gracenotes are added.
At $22,260, the 2019 Prius c is a small marvel of Toyota engineering. The Technology package Prius c adds, on top of the extra tech, alloy wheels, black side rocker and wheel arch moldings and LED fog lamps for $26,170.
If you live and commute in the city, do it with an urban- and environmentally-friendly attitude: the 2019 Toyota Prius c.
