2. Toyota Prius
It’s been a long ride for the Prius, the vehicle that carried Toyota through a recession and became a staple for changing the world. But the world doesn’t love the Prius anymore. The rise of crossovers has pretty much killed the Prius’s sales, not to mention the addition of other hybrids and all-electric vehicles to the market. The Prius has lost its unique ability to sell itself as a vehicle of change. It’s now just another Toyota. The current Prius has been in production for some time now and still features that trademark design.
But for the 2020 model year, the Prius still doesn’t offer anything unique. You’ll see most of the options that have been offered on Priuses of the past. That’s not even mentioning the outdated drivetrain. The Prius is not going to win any races. The exterior is not going to garner praises anymore. With Honda launching its new Insight sedan, the Prius has some stiff competition in the hybrid world. The Prius still only seats five people, and the interior is the same size that it’s been for years.
2020 is going to be another uneventful year for the brand. If you’re in the market for a hybrid vehicle, the Prius is probably one that’s best left avoided. Other options on the market are packed with more features and offer similar gas mileage.
