Toyota Prius

The Toyota Prius is the 800-pound gorilla of the hybrid world, and it looks like Toyota wants to keep it that way by holding the line on prices for the world's most popular hybrid. The Japanese automaker is leaving the price of all five trim lines of its standard hatchback Prius unchanged for the 2014, meaning that the price will once again range from $23,215 to $30,005, not including delivery and handling fees.

The Japanese automaker didn't break out 2014 pricing for the Prius C, V or Plug-In Hybrid versions, but was kind enough to leave the price of two of its three Avalon Hybrid versions unchanged as well. The Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Touring will get a $500 price hike to $37,250.

The Toyota Prius liftback has mostly been having a solid sales year in the US. Until August, sales were up 1.7 percent. In September, though, sales fell 16 percent from a year earlier. That gives the model year-to-date sales of 117,251 units, or seven shy of 2012 numbers. The 2014 Prius will start appearing in Toyota showrooms next month.

Toyota Announces Pricing for 2014 Avalon and Prius Liftback
Stunning 2014 Avalon remains a tremendous value in premium mid-size sedan segment with only minor price increase to base model
Prius Liftback will have no pricing increase for 2014

Torrance, Calif., Oct. 18, 2013 -- Toyota's flagship sedan, Avalon, will see a price increase of $350 dollars made to its base model (Avalon XLE) while 2014 pricing remains consistent with the 2013 model. In addition, the popular Prius liftback will keep its pricing consistent with the 2013 model year. Given their high level of feature content, both vehicles represent a tremendous value to consumers.

As Toyota's flagship sedan, the 2014 Avalon offers stunning design, dynamic performance, a high level of refinement, and a spacious, inviting interior equipped with outstanding convenience technologies. For 2014, a back-up monitor is now standard equipment on all Avalon models. The back-up monitor is the feature added to the base XLE grade which is the only Avalon that shows a price increase for 2014. The Avalon XLE Premium and Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium add Display Audio with Navigation and Entune App suite. For 2014, the Avalon XLE Touring model will be equipped with 18" anthracite-painted alloy wheels instead of silver finish. The Blind Spot Monitor is now optional equipment on the Avalon XLE Touring and Avalon Hybrid XLE Touring models.

Production of the 2014 Avalon and 2014 Prius begins early in October with both models first appearing in showrooms in November.
