2018 Toyota Prius c New Features and Review

The new 2018 Prius c has arrived as if it was plucked from the future and placed on our lot for all to witness. 

This forward thinking beauty is wrapped in an enhanced compact package, and yet packs in so much tech that it makes driving as seamless as operating your smartphone or tablet. Whether you're looking to upgrade your Prius or joining the community for the first-time, the moment you've been waiting for has arrived.

Everything You Need to Know About the New 2018 Prius c

Big Things Come in Small Packages

2018 Prius c New Features Review Red

The new design has delivered the smallest member of the Prius line, providing a lower center of gravity and a 9.6 meter turning circle that allows more responsive handling and maneuverability in even the most densified urban oasis. The compact refresh also equates a sleeker, more sporty aesthetic that the millennial generation demands.

However, the Prius is still surprisingly space-efficient. The 5-door access with 60/40 split rear seats allows you to load and unload cargo (and passengers) in a flash and with over 17 cubic feet of cargo space (behind the rear seats) you can take an extended road trip without having to leave your favorite gear at home. Things will feel even more spacious and freeing when you opt for the available power moonroof.

Technological Advancements

2018 Prius c New Features Review - Tech

The Prius has led the automotive industry in user-centric technology for years, and yet Toyota has found a way to upgrade the tech suite further for 2018. What's included? Here are a few highlights:

  • 6.1" Touch Panel Display Audio System - conduct your own symphony with easy to manage visual cues.
  • Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone Connectivity
  • USB Input Port
  • Auxiliary Input Jack
  • Multi-Information Display w/ECO Monitor - optimize your driving and fuel economy in real time with a few taps of your fingertips.
  • Available Touch Tracer Display - make sure you're pressing the right button on the steering mounted switches with a feature that displays a duplicate image on a 3.5'' LCD screen.
  • Backup Camera
  • Smart Key System
  • Available Integrated Navigation

Lower Cost of Ownership

The buy-in beginning at just $24,960 CAD (at press) is impressive in itself when you consider what the market value could be for any 2018 hybrid in this class, but it's the overall operating cost that makes the new Prius so fiscally lucrative. 

The combined fuel efficiency rating is 5.1 L/100 km, which means you'll see a significant return-on-investment when you compared what the fuel payout would be if you opted for any other vehicle in the class. The hybrid vehicle's EV Mode capacitates electric driving for up to a km when driving below 40 km/hr while the updated ECO Mode adjusts both climate control and throttle to help optimize your Prius c's fuel economy. Want to know exactly what you're saving while in charge of your driving experience? The new Prius c delivers up to date fuel cost and savings information right on your monitor. All you need to do is enter the current cost of fuel at the moment of refueling and a complete accounting of cost information will be provided to you on the spot and on the road ahead. When it comes to fuel savings, you use the same monitor to enter a prior mileage amount and you will be presented with information on current savings.

The cost savings of owning this new Prius c is reason enough alone to get on board.

Safety First

For all of the enhanced aesthetics, upgraded technology, and optimized economy, the Prius c can be best categorized as the safest vehicle in its class. Outfitted with a modern suite of advanced safety features manufactured to help protect drivers, passengers, and pedestrians, Toyota Safety Sense P is the see-all be-all in road safety. Features include Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams. The 2018 Prius c also includes the most up to date version of Toyota's Star Safety System, which offers Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology.
