2022 Toyota Prius Exterior and Dimensions

Toyota Prius Exterior Design Rating

2022 Prius Exterior

The exterior of the Prius has evolved over the years to feature things like bi-LED headlights and LED taillights, but the overall shape has remained mostly unchanged in order to maximize aerodynamic efficiency. Thus, you get a pretty smooth front end with only a few small grilles. 15-inch alloy wheels with full covers are standard but you can have 17-inch alloys on some trims, with a power sunroof also available. The hatchback rear of the Prius is still ghastly to look at, but a plastic bumper accent where you'd normally find a diffuser helps it look semi-decent. On the Nightshade Special Edition, gloss black accents and darkened headlight shrouds add a touch of sporty style, along with the blacked-out exterior trim.

Exterior Colors

Unlike with some manufacturers, Toyota gives you access to a number of colors as standard, with Electric Storm Blue, Classic Silver Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Midnight Black Metallic, and Sea Glass Pearl all available at no cost. Also available are Supersonic Red and Wind Chill Pearl at $425 each. Certain interior colors will reduce the available paint options; for example, the LE and XLE can't be painted in Classic Silver or Magnetic Gray when the Harvest Beige interior is chosen. The Prius Nightshade Special Edition, however, does differ from the rest in that it can only be painted in no-cost Classic Silver, White, and Midnight Black.
