Eric's Autos: 2022 Toyota Prius
Base price for the Prius Prime is $28,220.
To visually jazz up the Prius a bit, Toyota has added a Nightshade package to the list of available options. It includes black-anodized wheels and trim plus rain-sensing wipers, keyless entry, a heated steering wheel and simulated leather seat covers and door panel surfaces.
Practical -- and affordable.
Hatchback layout provides ample room for carrying large, unwieldy items.
AWD is available; other hybrids in the class such as the Hyundai Ioniq and Kia Niro don't offer it.
What's Not So Good
Center-mounted LCD touchscreen interface is not easy to use while driving.
Lacks the quickness that comes standard with most EVs.
