Marietta Drivers: 2019 Toyota Prius is Getting All-Wheel Drive!

If you know Toyota Prius, then you know it as a mid-size car that's a many-times-proven distance traveler. You likely know it's got excellent safety ratings, it's loaded with creature comforts, savvy when it comes to tech, and above all, highly affordable. But did you know that, now, you can get the benefits of AWD, and with the exceptional mileage for which the hybrid hatchback has come to be known?

It's true: 2019 Prius is getting all-wheel-drive-equipped LE AWD-e and XLE AWD-e trims, and they're soon to appear at Toyota dealerships like ours here in Marietta, OH. The new tech, an electronic on-demand compact all-wheel-drive system, is designed to work at speeds of up to 43 mph, meaning you'll have a low center of gravity, dependable balance, and a firm grip on the road at your service in iffy conditions. Better yet, paired with an Electronically controlled, continuously variable transmission or eCVT, Prius still gets great miles per gallon: up to 52 mpg city and 48 mpg highway by initial estimates.

Just think of what this is going to mean for the fact that Prius comes with both the passive Star Safety System suite and active Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) driver-aid tech. The former delivers a smooth ride that makes the most of traction while providing reliable stopping power. The latter helps you stay on course, light your way with other drivers in mind, maintain safe distances in heavy traffic, and avoid accidents. We think you'll agree: together, they'll take the comprehensive protection and ultimate peace of mind for which Toyota is known to the next level.

Stay tuned with us here at C&C Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Toyota for further updates in advance of the big arrival. Until then, you're welcome to get the 2019 Toyota Prius experience for yourself. Call our showroom here at 1305 Pike Street in Marietta or drop in for a visit today -- we'll be happy to show you around behind the wheel!
