Big news for fans of the Toyota Prius.
New technology features such as a bigger touchscreen and Apple CarPlay integration will come standard across all trim levels, making the 2020 edition the most desirable upgrade in recent memory.
While the 2019 Prius had some nice changes like optional All-Wheel Drive and revamped styling, car-buyers have been waiting patiently for the technology suite of the Prius to get a facelift. Before customers can officially declare that all of their prayers have been answered, here’s a look at what will come standard in the 2020 model:
- Noticeably bigger touchscreen at 7.0″ compared to the former 6.1″ screen
- Updated Infotainment system
- Apple CarPlay connectivity but no Android Auto support
- Toyota Safety Connect System
The addition of these helpful features means that the base price will rise, but that will only come at a minimal cost of $175-$430, depending on the trim level.
When an auto manufacturer announces that significant upgrades will come standard, that usually means that customers must be willing to dig into their pockets a little deeper. This is not the case for the 2020 Toyota Prius, so new car-buyers will be taking notice when the car hits dealerships in the coming weeks.
