The Toyota Prius is taking a step forward in the hybrid driving experience with the introduction of an intelligent, electric all-wheel drive system. Optionally available on the new 2019 Prius, AWD-i is a compact and lightweight system that operates automatically to support the driver in common scenarios where extra grip is needed.
