2018 Prius Exterior

The Prius has garnered a reputation for its unique and angular styling, with bi-LED head and taillights and daytime running lights making up the majority of its striking look. Folding exterior mirrors and color-coded door handles, together with a shark-fin antenna, add to the sleek profile. Entry-level models have standard 15-inch wheels, which have a two-tone insert on mid-range options. The top-tier variants are equipped with 17-inch alloys and offer a moonroof as optional. The two Touring models are equipped with integrated fog lights and clearance lights, as well as a unique front and rear bumper. Piano-black side skirt rocker panels can be equipped additionally.

At the more spacious end of the compact car segment, the Prius has a length of 178.7 inches, a width of 69.3 inches, and it stands 58.1 inches tall. Although longer than most rivals, it sits somewhere in the middle in terms of other dimensions; it is also heavier than the Hyundai Ioniq and the Honda Fit, but lighter than the Ford C-Max Hybrid, weighing in at 3,010 lbs for the lightest Two Eco trim and 3,080 for the fully loaded Four Touring model. A wheelbase of 106.3 inches is substantially longer than other competitors, no doubt assisting with the smooth ride and well-spaced interior. Sitting low to the road, the Prius offers ground clearance of 5.1 inches.
