2020 Toyota Prius vs. Its Competition

2020 Toyota Prius
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Hyundai Ioniq feels almost like a Toyota Prius clone, albeit one with a low price tag and better driving dynamics.

It’s not as spacious, though, and its tech features aren’t as swanky.

The Kia Niro has crossover-like looks that may appeal to many buyers, and its fuel economy ratings almost match the Toyota.

The Honda Insight has sedan-like looks and a comfortable interior, though its engine can drone.

Toyota’s showrooms may offer the most compelling reasons not to buy a Prius, however.

The new Corolla Hybrid is a miserly choice that nearly matches the Prius, while the RAV4 Hybrid is remarkably thrifty given its extra utility and performance.
