It was weird. When I rounded the corner, a guy walking down the street stopped suddenly, whipped out his phone, and started acting like a paparazzo, taking pictures of my test car like it was a super star. Add this incident to the to the number of thumbs-up signs my test car scored, and you’d suspect I was driving something rare and exotic. But I wasn’t. I was driving a 2023 Toyota Prius…something decidedly un-exotic.
Revealed at a private event in advance of the 2022 Los Angeles Auto Show, Toyota officially unveiled the next version of its Prius gas/electric and Prius Prime plug-in hybrids. These fifth-generation hatchbacks get a sleek new look, a revised battery pack, and up-to-date safety and connectivity tech. The company also claims that the standard Prius hybrid will achieve 57 mpg in combined city/highway driving.
Class: Subcompact Car
Miles Driven: 357
Fuel Used: 9.1 gallons
It would seem more fitting for the Chicago or Detroit Auto Show, but Toyota chose the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show to introduce a Prius with more “snow” appeal.
