2016 Toyota Prius to Debut in November with a More Shimmering Profile than its Predecessor

Meanwhile, a Taiwanese website has just posted plenty of diagrammatic images of what could possibly be the 2016 Toyota Prius.

The images show a car that’s a clear evolution of the familiar Prius lozenge-shape, updated with a design vocabulary seen in the Mirai and some of Toyota’s latest concept cars.

The drawings of the 2016 Toyota Prius on the website feature a bolder look, less anonymous, with lots of crisp origami-ish angles and creases. It also sports dramatically-shaped boomerang lights that Toyota has been tinkering with for quite some time.

The images also suggest that the 2016 Toyota Prius comes in two basic versions which are the reen and blue colors.

The supposed 2016 Toyota Prius is lighter as it now weighs only 2,821 pounds which can be attributed to the replacement of one of the glass panels in the tailgate with acrylic. But the engine is still the same from previous reports and rumors about the hybrid vehicle. It still has the 105-horsepower 1.8-liter DOHC VVT-i Atkinson-cycle engine under the hood.

In addition to being a little bigger, the 2016 Toyota Prius has reportedly been given better driving dynamics by the Japanese carmaker, a feature which enables the upcoming model to overwhelm the present variant of the hybrid vehicle.

  1. One reason the Prius V may be getting big discounts is that the U.S. version is a dinosaur, not sold anywhere else except North America. The Europeans and Japanese get the 21st Century technology in their Prius V with lithium-ion batteries. They’re less bulky and enable those nations the ability to have a 3 row Prius V which the U.S. gets the two-row. Eventually, the U.S. will get the modern battery setup.
