Introduction

 

In the last few years, people have become more concerned about driving environmentally friendly cars. Therefore, if you are a looking for something eco-friendly yet efficient, the Toyota Prius 2018 model, is your go-to vehicle. The efficiency that this hybrid provides you almost rivals that of a plugin. The 2018 Prius is still largely similar to its predecessors, albeit the larger touchscreen. Here are the specifications of the car;

 

Engine


The new model Prius is slightly different from the older models, given that is has a longer and lower body. This modification has lowered its center of gravity making it more stable on the road. Its engine, however, has not been changed. The car still boasts a 1.8 liter in liner 4 engine. This provides a 121 hp output when you combine the 93 hsp with the 53-kW electric motor.

Unlike the older models, the 2018 cars give the driver a choice between a 1.2-kWh nickel-metal-hydride battery pack, which has already been seen in other Prius models and a 0.75-kWh lithium-ion pack. The former is only found in the Prius Two Eco, while the latter comes in the other models of the car. The lithium-ion pack is considered to use its charge more effectively and is lighter. Toyota put in a more rigid frame on this model, which when coupled with the low sitting of the vehicle makes it stable.

 

Exterior and interior

One way to describe a Prius is that the body looks a bit egg shaped. However, the newer model has a lower and sleeker front bumper, which makes the car look less oval. The manufacturer also put in some optical illusions and slashes along the side of the car, making it look sleeker and more streamlined. This feature also draws your attention away from the slab-like doors. Now the rear end of the car is a confusing sight with differing concepts. The rear end is similar to the previous model with the chevron shaped backlights, which now have additional tails. Even though having tails on rear light is ridiculous, it also draws attention to the height of the rear.

The interior of the car is a mix of soft materials and plastics. A feature that technology enthusiasts will truly appreciate in this car is the 11.6-inch touchscreen, mounted into the dashboard between the driver and co-driver seats. High gloss plastics have been used around the gear and to make the cup holder, but from our experience, these will not look so good after a couple of years.

The 2018 Prius can be considered spacious, considering that the back seat boasting 33.7 cm of leg room. Officially, the car can seat three people or two in the case of a Prius Prime. The sloped roofline, although not very attractive give this vehicle 27 cubic ft of cargo room.  The only problem brought about by this feature, and the liftback design, is that the sloped roofline eats into the headspace. Meaning that taller passengers may need to hunch a bit, or slide down, during the drive to stay comfortable.

 

The takeaway

The Toyota Prius has always been known for its fuel economy and efficiency, and in this category, it remains on top. However, some work still needs to be done its appearance.
