New spy photos have revealed the upcoming 2016 Toyota Prius.
Toyota’s redesigned hybrid has all-new radical style for 2016, moving away from its boring image and closer to the new looks of the Toyota Mirai. While details on the car remain in the dark, the Prius is expected to be more powerful and fun to drive than previous models.
Fuel economy is rumored to be boosted up to about 54 MPG combined thanks in part to considerable weight loss. That is mostly due to the Prius’ new platform, Toyota’s TNGA modular architecture, which will eventually underpin many of the automaker’s vehicles.
A previous set of interior spy photos revealed the car’s new large touchscreen in the center stack along with a new layout for the HVAC controls.
The new 2016 Toyota Prius is expected to be officially unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in October of this year. It will probably make its US debut at the LA auto show one month later.
