The Prime isn’t just Toyota’s best Prius—it’s the best hybrid car, period.

When it comes to fuel economy, the 2020 Toyota Prius Prime is a supercar. Despite Cliff Atiyeh’s heavy foot, he wasn’t able to completely drain the Prime’s fuel tank, covering more than 600 miles in the course of a week. The EPA rates the Prius Prime at 55 mpg city, 53 highway, 54 combined once its battery pack has been depleted. Add in that 8.8-kilowatt-hour battery, and the Prius Prime returns 133 MPGe.

That efficiency comes at the price of power, as the Prius Prime’s 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine and electric motors pair for 121 horsepower. Charging the battery takes 6 hours with a 120-volt household outlet or two hours with a 240-volt system.

Toyota aimed to impress with its 11.6-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen. Unfortunately, the graphics feel old, the controls are overly simplistic, and the maps are both crude and fussy. Luckily, Apple CarPlay is offered, as are multiple USB ports.

Pricing for the Prius Prime starts at $27,750. Cliff’s Limited-trim test model stickered for $35,425, and CarGurus recommends the midgrade XLE for $29,650.
