The New All-Wheel-Drive 2019 Toyota Prius is Here in Waterford, MI!

You probably know Toyota Prius as a distance traveler that's proven itself in the mid-size car segment many times over. You're likely familiar with its excellent safety ratings, many creature comforts, and forward-thinking tech savvy. Above all, we're sure you know how affordable it is for a busy Michigan driver with places to go in Bloomfield, people to see, and things to do over in Rochester. But did you also know that, now, you can get all the benefits of AWD with the sky-high fuel economy the hybrid hatchback has come to be known for?

It's true: 2019 Prius is getting two new, all-wheel-drive-equipped trims, LE AWD-e and XLE AWD-e. The good news: they're already here at our Toyota dealership in Waterford. So, what's so exciting about the new tech?

It's characterized as a compact, electronic on-demand all-wheel-drive system, designed to work at up to 43 mph. That means having a lower center of gravity, reliable balance, and grippy traction at your disposal in rough or weather-beaten road conditions. Factor in that the engine's still paired with an eCVT, and you can count on Prius to get that great mileage per gallon we were talking about: up to 52 mpg around cities like Detroit and 48 mpg across the highway to spots like Farmington by initial estimates.

Just think of what this means for Prius also coming with both the passive Star Safety security system and the active driver-aid suite, Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). We'll help: you can add a smooth ride, improved situational awareness, safe distancing from traffic, easy course management, and dependable stopping power to the mix. We think you'll agree that, together, all three features take the safety commitment for which Toyota is known to another level.

Eager to check out what else the new AWD Toyota Prius has going on under the hood? Call our showroom here at 4178 Highland Road in Waterford or drop in for a visit -- we'll be glad to take you for a test drive to show you around!
