There are a lot of folks out there that like the odd style of the Toyota Prius and buy the hybrid for its fuel efficiency. There are some folks in cold weather states that won’t even look at a car that lacks all-wheel-drive. To target those AWD fans, Toyota announced the 2019 Prius with an AWD-e option.
Pricing on the car has now been announced, and the cheapest AWD Prius will start at $27,300 with the destination charge. The cheapest Prius model all around is the Prius L Eco FWD that starts at $24,690, the next step up is the LE at $25,900, and the XLR at $28,740.
The high-end model is the Limited starting at $33,120. AWD versions can be had on LE at $27,300, XLE AWD versions start at $29,740. If you are wondering the AWD-e cars have another electric motor that powered the rear wheels and AWD isn’t on all the time. It activates between 0 and 6 mph or when needed at speeds up to 43mph.
