2022 Toyota Prius review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Toyota Prius?

The five-seat Toyota Prius is the hybrid of choice for shoppers who want a spacious cabin, lots of standard safety features and excellent fuel economy. The hatchback’s gas-electric drivetrain is rated at 121 horsepower, and its EPA-estimated gas mileage is as high as 56 mpg combined. Short of buying an electric car — or choosing the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid — there are few better ways to lower your fuel bill. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available.

Prius competitors include the Honda Insight and Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. The Prius offers 13.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind its backseat, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements.

What’s New on the 2022 Toyota Prius?

A rear-seat reminder feature is now standard, and a new Nightshade Special Edition is available. Nightshade versions have black exterior accents and black alloy wheels.

Should I Buy the 2022 Toyota Prius?

The Toyota Prius is an excellent choice for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money, either at the dealership or corner gas station. The cabin offers plenty of room, front and rear, and decent cargo space. The interior can be noisy at higher speeds, however, and the Prius’ multimedia technology is looking dated.
