What the Critics Say

Buyers prioritizing fuel economy above all else are wise to put the 2020 Toyota Prius on the top of their list of vehicles to consider. As with all iterations of the Prius, it returns 50 miles per gallon combined or better, while its functional cabin and versatile hatchback design add to the efficiency theme.” — Autotrader
But some buyers want versatility and practicality without having to buy a crossover. Those buyers will definitely appreciate the addition of all-wheel drive to the Prius’ lineup, because it only sweetens the deal on a car that’s already pretty darn good.” — Roadshow by CNET
