Back in 2001 the Toyota Prius, the world’s first mass-produced hybrid vehicle arrived in dealerships. Over the next two decades, Toyota would go on to sell more than six million Prius vehicles around the world and more than 200,000 hybrid models (including Lexus) in Canada. To honour the 20th anniversary, the 2021 Toyota Prius offers Canadian drivers the latest in safety and multimedia connectivity.
The 2021 Prius comes equipped with the latest version of Toyota Safety Sense (TSS-P) standard which includes:
• Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
• Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
• Lane Departure Alert with Lane Tracing Assist
• Automatic High Beams
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection is designed to offer automatic braking capability, under certain conditions, should the driver not react in time in an emergency situation. Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Intelligent Clearance Sonar with Intelligent Parking Assist are also standard.
Also for 2021, all models but the Prius AWD Technology offer Android Auto compatibility™. Apple CarPlay compatibility was already standard on 2020 Prius models.
The Prius is one of nine Toyota hybrid models available for 2021 in Canada. Others include the first-ever Corolla Hybrid, Camry Hybrid, RAV4 Hybrid, Highlander Hybrid, RAV4 Prime and Prius Prime.
