2016 Toyota Prius Interior
The interior of the 2016 Toyota Prius will be changed to get a smoother more appealing but sporty look. Safety will be catered for through multiple airbags and every functional button will be closer for easy operation.
2016 Prius Exterior
Toyota is using the Toyota New-Global-Architecture which is aimed at lowering the center of gravity for the new 2016 Prius. The exterior will also be smoothened to improve on aerodynamics and the structure will be lighter for cheaper production. According to the information available, the 2016 Toyota Prius will resemble the new Corolla especially on the front. The overall look will also lose the Prius look that we are used to and this will give way to a sportier Prius.
2016 Toyota Prius Engine
Toyota will probably fit the new 2016 Prius with its new Hybrid Synergy drive which is expected to be the back borne of the popular hybrid drivetrain. The vehicle will be lighter and have a lowercost which will reduce the overall CO2 emissions. The 2016 Toyota Prius will still feature the 1.8L petro engine, a more power than the previous vehicle but with a better battery pack. The engine-power and the power coming from the battery will be separated at both the front and back wheels. The vehicle will therefore have an all wheel drive feature. The new engine is expected to manage an increase of up to 10% in fuel economy which makes it another fuel efficiency success story from Toyota.
