Bridgestone Ecopia EP20 review
What is it?
The Bridgestone Ecopia EP20 all season tire is the original equipment tire of the third generation (2010+) Toyota Prius. As part of the Bridgestone Ecopia line of tires, the Ecopia EP-20 possesses minimal rolling resistance, and therefore high efficiency and fuel economy.
Strengths and weaknesses?
When Bridgestone aims for fuel economy and efficiency it typically hits the mark, and there's nothing to suggest that the Ecopia EP-20 is any different. It also delivers a civilized ride and minimal road noise.
But it's arguably an all season tire with winter performance that's highly questionable. Some also report limited treadlife. We think they might be too heavy on the gas though (is that still what you call it in the Prius?).
How does it compare?
If the priority is fuel economy, the Ecopia EP-20 will compare favorably against the competition. On pure performance grounds it will be merely average, and if you try to use through the winter you might learn to hate them... It comes down to your priorities.
- Treadlife Warranty: None
- Uniformity Warranty: First 1/32" of wear
Anything else to know?
Limited 15" sizes means application is limited to the Prius and maybe a few others.
