Perhaps the most iconic vehicle on the Toyota lineup – a lineup that is, admittedly, rife with icons – the Toyota Prius celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. We’re absolutely stoked about the 2021 Toyota Prius here in Lima OH. Although it’s only a few years removed from its mid-generation facelift, therefore not in need of many changes, the Prius is always an exciting release each year. And despite the fact that it won’t be getting enhanced or upgraded in any major way, Toyota has announced it will be creating a special edition model to celebrate its anniversary!
Since its initial model year back in 2001, the Toyota Prius has sold more than 1.9 million models in the United States alone. We’re sure the 2021 model will push it over that 2 million mark, especially with the exciting new Special 20th Anniversary Addition. The brand will be building 2,020 units of this special model, called the 2020 Edition.
The 2020 Edition will be built onto the 2021 Prius XLE FWD trim level, available in either the Supersonic Red or Wind Chill Pearl exterior color options. It will be outfitted with a host of black exterior accents and unique features, such as a color-keyed rear spoiler, black inserts for the 17” alloy wheels, blackout headlight components, black B-pillars and black mirror housings. On the inside, the floor mats will feature a special 2020 insignia, as will the key fob, while the shift knob, A-pillar trim and smoked HVAC vents will be black.
Also, there will be one new feature for the entire lineup of 2021 Toyota Prius models – the introduction of Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. It replaces the previous TSS-P package, includes the Pre-Collision System with Low-Light Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Bicyclist Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams and Road Sign Assist as standard features.
