2019 Toyota Prius (facelift) to look similar to Toyota Prius PHV
12 April 2018 - IndianAutosBlog
The fourth-generation Toyota Prius introduced in 2015 will go under the chisel this year.
To address the criticism towards the latest Toyota Prius' design, the Japanese designers will give it a drastic makeover with the facelift, as per the report. The facelifted Toyota Prius is expected with a design similar to that of current Toyota Prius PHV. Toyota will, however, need to take care that both cars don't look identical as that would disappoint the plug-in hybrid variant's customers again.
The facelifted Toyota Prius is expected to gain an improved powertrain incorporating TNGA technology. Sure, the fourth-generation model is underpinned by the TNGA platform, but it carries over its predecessor's powertrain with some refinements. Its 122 PS hybrid system consists of the 97.89 PS 2ZR-FXE 1.8L petrol engine and a 72 PS electric motor.
The 2019 Toyota Prius is expected to touch down in December 2018.
