The second of only two trims available with AWD, the XLE is the most luxurious AWD Prius available. Like the LE AWD-e, the XLE version gets a nickel-metal hydride battery pack and an electric motor on the rear axle, but doesn’t see an increase in power and sees a decrease in efficiency. However, the battery construction makes it better suited to cold-weather states. It does get an assortment of luxuries, however, with leatherette seating, heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and onboard navigation.
