Overview

What's New in the 2019 Toyota Prius C?

The Prius c gets new trim levels for 2019. There are now only two and they've been renamed, with the new L and LE corresponding with the former Two and Three trims, respectively. This results in extra standard equipment and a slightly higher base price, as well as the discontinuation of certain higher-end features like a sunroof, simulated leather upholstery and heated seats. A number of paint and interior colors have also been discontinued.

Which Prius C is the Best?

The Prius c LE is definitely the best deal. For less than $23,000, you get keyless access with push-button starting, a navigation system and Toyota's Entune infotainment system. Like every Prius c, you also get standard accident-avoidance tech that is rarely included at this price point.

Competition

2019 Toyota Prius C vs the competition

2019 Honda Insight -- The base model Honda Insight LX costs a bit less than the Prius c LE, yet it's a bigger and far more refined car that also gets superior fuel economy.

2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid -- Hyundai is trying to beat Toyota at the game it invented. The Ioniq offers superior fuel economy to the Prius c at a similar price. The Ioniq is also available in plug-in and electric variants.

2019 Honda Fit -- True, it isn't a hybrid and can't match the Prius c fuel economy. However, the Fit is still very efficient, plus it's quicker, far more spacious and generally more refined. Oh, and much cheaper.

Used Chevrolet Volt -- The Volt is a plug-in hybrid -- and that means regular access to a charging station is important. If you have that, you might want to consider a used Volt, which offers impressive fuel economy and a range-extending gasoline engine that kicks in once the electric motor is out of juice.

Used Toyota Prius -- If the Prius c doesn't seem like enough, keep in mind that the regular Prius starts under $25,000 and comes well-equipped. Used models are even less expensive, so you might be able to get a 1- or 2-year-old Prius for about the same money as a new Prius c.
