The 2020 Toyota Prius: Saving Fuel and Creating Fans

For many drivers — especially Toyota enthusiasts — the Prius defines the hybrid concept. By providing an extraordinarily efficient, affordable alternative to gas-only models, the Prius has almost single-handedly turned fuel economy into an art form, easily delivering EPA fuel estimates in the mid-to-high 50s. And when you factor in the Prius’ incredibly budget-friendly price, it’s not hard to see why this vehicle has such devoted fans.

At Rivertown Toyota, we love showing our customers all the exceptional features in the new 2020 Prius. Our award-winning dealership in Columbus, GA is proud to offer an award-worthy car-shopping experience: stop by anytime for a test drive and see for yourself.

The Latest Technology in the Newest Model

As is customary for the Prius, its technology gets an upgrade for 2020, starting with standard Apple CarPlay® on all models. You can find out where you’re going, handle important calls and keep up with messages via your compatible iPhone® while still keeping all your attention on the road. Speaking of using your smartphone: add the Toyota+Alexa app to a connected device and Alexa is at your instant voice command. Turn on some tunes, find the latest forecast, get a news update or check your home’s smart security system simply by speaking: it just doesn’t get any easier.

Well, actually, it does. The color head-up display — available in the 2020 Prius — takes its cues from the technology used in aircraft to display key details — like your current speed, turn-by-turn directions and your vehicle’s Hybrid System Info — directly onto your windshield. The display is easily visible and yet not distracting, so it keeps you safe and informed at the same time.

Power Ports and Sound Streaming

The 2020 Prius not only offers device-enabled technology, but it also ensures those devices stay ready to go with two rear USB 2.1A ports for on-the-go charging. Or you can take advantage of the available and convenient Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging capability: with no messy cords to sort out, powering up your Qi-compatible device is as simple as placing it on the readily accessible non-slip pad.

The connectivity doesn’t stop there — whether you’re en route to work or out on the town, your playlist streaming via Bluetooth® wireless technology will make every minute more enjoyable. Even better, the sound clarity is further enhanced with six standard or ten available JBL® speakers.

Safety in Motion

In the 2020 Toyota Prius, keeping you safe through technology is an even bigger priority than keeping you connected. One example: the available Intelligence Clearance Sonar (ICS) with Intelligent Parking Assist (IPA). When you park, ICS is on the lookout for fixed objects such as signposts, walls or other vehicles. If something is detected, the system delivers both audible and visible alerts while also decreasing your car’s engine output. ICS even engages your brakes if necessary to help avoid a collision.

As you’ll see, technology is at the forefront of the new 2020 Toyota Prius. Come by our car dealership in Columbus, GA, and check all the latest features with a test drive.
