2016 Toyota Prius presented officially


The Japanese company finally unveiled its new 2016 Toyota Prius hybrid, which will go on sale later this year.


The design of the novelty is not a surprise, since earlier in the network appeared her spy photos. We note many similarities with the concept of Mirai. The fourth generation Toyota Prius is based on the new architecture of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which adds a lot of changes. For example, the chassis is 60% more rigid, while the center of gravity is lower. In size, the novelty has become 60 mm longer, 15 mm wider and 20 mm lower, while the interior has increased.


There is no full list of specifications, but the Japanese promise a 10% improvement in fuel economy, and a 40% increase in thermal efficiency. The help and security systems were updated, and the most up-to-date infotainment system was not without it.


Toyota plans to release a new Prius first at home in Japan, and then the car debuts in other markets.
