As the subcompact member of the Prius family, the 2019 Toyota Prius C measures only 68 inches in width and 162 inches in length. The car’s meager size its greatest asset: It results in excellent fuel economy, a tight turning radius, and an affordable price.
Under the hood of the 2019 Prius c is a tight, well-oiled 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Benefitting from the intuitive regulation of Variable Valve Timing with intelligence and the electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission, the 2019 Prius c engine musters an incredibly efficient 48 mpg in city driving and 43 mpg on highway travels.*
Further bolstering the budget- and eco-friendliness of the Prius c are its EV Mode, which allows the car to drive completely on electricity for a short distance, and its ECO Mode, which reduces climate control operations to conserve even more fuel. That’s how the Prius c earned the status of a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle.
The 2019 Prius c flaunts a big personality for such a small body. It dazzles with bold paint colors like Tide Pool Pearl, Absolutely Red, Blue Streak Metallic, and Blizzard Pearl. Its prominent plastic cladding surrounding the wheel arches and lower intake give the car an adventurous, outdoorsy demeanor—as do the bold 15-inch eight-spoke machined alloy wheels with dark-gray-painted accents, LED taillights, and black roof rails.
Being a hatchback with 40/60 folding rear seats, the 2019 Prius c can either seat four passengers or expand your storage space. While the raised rear end and fifth door already provides a generous 17.1 cubic feed of storage in the cargo area, that can be expanded to include the whole rear row, too.
