Totally Trendy: The 2021 Toyota Prius


With the Prius in 1997, Toyota was the very first manufacturer to design a type of vehicle that is now popular and appreciated: the hybrid car. Twenty-four years later, the 2021 Toyota Prius continues to please with its fuel-efficiency, advanced technologies and exemplary safety. Still a leader in its class, the Prius is available in two distinct models, either the standard hybrid or the Prius Prime, a plug-in hybrid car. 

Sherbrooke Toyota in the heart of the Estrie region, near Lennoxville and Forestville, presents the various models of the 2021 Toyota Prius by showing you their main features. Your dealership has a vast inventory of Toyota vehicles for sale, hybrid or gas-powered, from the 2018 Toyota Camry hybrid for sale to the most recently available. 

The Prius, a Car Ahead of Its Time!

At first glance, you can immediately recognize the Prius with its triangular and incisive shapes that catch the eye and exude sportiness. The Prius Prime is just as cut, although having a more rounded and flexible shape. Plus, in both cases, vibrant colours that make you stand out! 

The original Prius is available in 4 versions, categorized by drive, including the Prius Technology. The Prime, on the other hand, includes 2 versions, the Prime and Prime Upgrade. Either way, it’s a 1.8-liter fuel engine paired with a synergistic hybrid system developing 120 horsepower that drives the Toyota forward. In addition, two Prius models are equipped with the AWD-e electronic all-wheel drive system for exceptional, stable and responsive handling. 

The main strength of the vehicle is, of course, its fuel consumption, the best in its class according to Natural Resources Canada. Depending on the model and drive, the combined average fuel consumption is between 4.3 L/100 km and 4.7 L/100 km, a figure that can also be optimized. 

In fact, in the original Prius, the Eco Drive Monitor allows you to adjust your driving habits so you can reduce your consumption as much as possible. On the Prime, the vehicle can travel a distance of around 40 km in 100% electric mode, which can make a big difference in consumption! Charged and with a full tank, its total range goes up to 1,035 km; it only takes 5.5 hours to fully charge with a standard outlet at home

The Japanese manufacturer, true to its reputation, still doesn’t compromise on safety by integrating the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 package as standard. Lane departure alert, maintenance support, steering assist and the pre-collision system with pedestrian detection are all included. The automatic emergency braking will help you avoid the disaster by applying the brakes when necessary: peace of mind; this is what awaits you with the Prius. 

Other standard safety features are included such as the rearview camera as well as automatic high beams and LED daytime running lights. The Prius Technology or Prime Upgrade versions come with the additional blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. 

A modern and innovative vehicle like the Prius must, of course, be trendy and equipped with a state-of the-art infotainment system, and that is the case! The basic versions have a 7-inch touchscreen including compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth and voice commands. Those equipped with Prius Technology push it even further, with a screen of 11.2 inches available, integrated navigation and wireless charging. 

In summary, the Toyota Prius was and continues to be a pioneer in its field, being the most fuelefficient in its class and always being connected!
