To help you choose the best car for your automotive needs, we got the chance to test drive a multitude of recently released models, preferring autos that were packed to the gills with safety features, including collision warning systems, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking, in addition to seat belts and airbags. We also liked models that got plenty of gas mileage, as much as 55 MPG in our top pick with a minimum of 36 MPG. We also preferred cars with attractive designs, industry-standard warranties and modern accoutrements, such as HUD displays and heated seats.
The best car we drove was the recently released 2020 Toyota Prius Prime, a hybrid model that gives you the mileage of an electric, 55 MPG on the highway and 53 MPH in the city, without giving up some of the luxuries found in exclusively gas-powered automobiles. It has plenty of safety features, including adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning system and parking sensors located in the front and rear of the car. It has plenty of leg room, easily accommodating five passengers, and is stuffed with innovative technologies, such as a heads-up display, integrated Bluetooth, automatic parallel parking capabilities and a lane keep assist function. The powerful 121 HP motor also goes from 0-60 in ten seconds, which is great for a hybrid. Keep reading to learn more about the 2020 Toyota Prius Prime and the other models on this list.
