“Prius is the world’s most recognized name for advanced and efficient motoring, and the Prius c combines Toyota’s proven hybrid technology with a small footprint to produce a nimble compact hatch, perfect for life in a modern city. For 2018, we’ve made Prius c even more stylish and safe – giving [customers] even more reasons to welcome this forward-thinking hybrid into their lives.”

What’s new in the Prius c?
The most noticeable changes come to the exterior, which you can see as soon as you set eyes on it. Both the front and rear fascia styles have been enhanced quite a bit, most notably featuring redesigned headlights and taillamps.
If you pop open the door and peer inside, you’ll notice even more aesthetically pleasing updates. Many different aspects of the interior have been upgraded, including the instrument panel which sports a completely new design – as do the air conditioning controls and even the steering wheel.
Finally, as with just about every vehicle every year lately it seems, the Prius c will offer superior safety. Namely, every trim level will come with a standard backup camera, and many trims will feature great safety features like blind spot detection and a suite of airbags.
