More than just incredible efficiency

It probably won’t surprise too many people to learn that the 2022 Toyota Prius remains one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles you can buy for driving around Stanleytown, Danville, Rocky Mount, and Greensboro. However, this original icon of hybrid technology has continued to evolve, and it can even be a good vehicle in the snow these days with all-wheel-drive now available. It might be time to look again if you think you know everything about the Prius and assume that this hybrid legend might have lost its edge in today’s market.

Trim levels

If you think a Prius is a Prius, and that’s all there is to it, then think again. The 2022 Toyota Prius is available in no fewer than eight different trim levels, and that’s without even considering the Prius Prime plug-in variants. There’s even a genuinely cool version of the Prius in the shape of a Nightshade edition that boasts blacked-out wheels, door handles and badges, black interior and exterior trim accents, a heated steering wheel, and heated black synthetic leather seats.

The 2022 lineup starts with the entry-level Prius L Eco, and then we have the LE, LE AWD-e, XLE, Nightshade, XLE AWD-e, Nightshade AWD-e, and the top-of-the-range Limited trim level.

Powertrains and fuel economy

2022 Toyota Prius powertrains and performance

Even though the Prius has been around longer than other hybrids, the powertrains and the fuel economy ratings still grab the headlines, and rightly so. Along with still being one of the most fuel-efficient cars you can buy, the latest 2022 Toyota Prius can also be fun and exciting to drive. The powertrain is a 95-horsepower 1.8-liter inline-four gas engine complemented by a 53-kW electric motor system and a 0.75-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that delivers 121 horsepower. AWD-e models get an additional motor at the rear wheels and a larger 1.2-kWh nickel-metal hydride battery pack. The rear motor system is small, but it does deliver extra grip for a smooth start on slick surfaces and slightly improves acceleration on dry surfaces.

The L Eco trim is the fuel-efficiency champion of the current lineup, with EPA ratings of 58 mpg in the city, 53 mpg on the highway, and 56 mpg combined. Other front-drive models get EPA ratings of 54/50/52 mpg, while AWD models are a little more thirsty at 51/47/49 mpg.

Features and equipment

The most affordable versions of the 2022 Toyota Prius are great value for money, and higher-spec models can begin to infringe upon luxury car territory. With so many different models these days, there will be a Prius to suit the most environmentally-conscious drivers or just those who want excellent fuel economy and great value for money. Even the base model comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility, three USB ports, and Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity.

Even the range-topping 2022 Prius Limited looks like excellent value for money. Along with a competitive MSRP, standard features include a head-up display, keyless entry, a power driver’s seat, a heated synthetic leather steering wheel and front seats, an eight-way power driver’s seat, an 11.6-inch infotainment touchscreen, and a premium JBL premium audio system with ten speakers.
