TORONTO, ON: Combine the fuel efficiency and low emissions of an electrified powertrain with the style and driving fun of a sporty liftback, then add in a generous mix of in-demand advanced technology and safety features. That’s the recipe for success that has made the Toyota Prius the world ambassador for hybrid vehicles and the future of the automobile.
Built on the Toyota New Global Architecture, every model features the Toyota Hybrid Drive system – the world’s most popular and proven advanced powertrain. In the Prius, a 1.8L Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine combined with high-torque electric motors deliver 120 system horsepower while also recording impressive efficiency numbers: 4.4L / 100km for front-wheel-drive models and 4.7L / 100km for those equipped with all-wheel-drive (city/highway combined).
For year-round driving confidence, the Prius is available in three all-wheel-drive configurations. Designed specifically for compact hybrid vehicles, the Prius AWD-e system uses electric motors to provide instant torque to the rear wheels whenever more traction is required. At all other times, Prius AWD-e models operate in front wheel drive mode to maximize fuel efficiency and minimize emissions.
