New and Improved 2016 Toyota Prius Design
You simply can’t replace an icon and when it comes to the automotive industry, the Toyota Prius sets the gold standard for hybrid vehicles. Designed and built from the ground up to achieve unrivaled fuel economy ratings, the current 2015 Toyota Prius edition is a favorite here at Allan Nott Toyota. While all of those elements have made the Prius a flagship of the Toyota brand, the revamped 2016 Toyota Prius is ready to take the hybrid design to the next level. Take a look at the new and improved 2016 Toyota Prius design here at Allan Nott Toyota to see how the iconic hybrid will improve.
With improved efficiency as a focus of the Toyota brand with the release of the all-new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, it stands to reason that the next-generation Toyota Prius will improve on its own fuel economy ratings. Official numbers have not yet been released, but brand officials point to a 10-percent increase in mpg for all base Toyota Prius models. Higher fuel economy numbers will be achieved through a combination of lighter hybrid components, a new high-energy battery pack and a more efficient gas engine. These elements and a new Toyota Prius Eco trim promise best-in-class fuel economy of any car without a plug.
Instantly recognizable with its aerodynamic wedge shape, the Toyota Prius is always a head turner for those not accustomed to its unique style. A longer, lighter and more eye-catching design are the highlights of the new 2016 Toyota Prius and the platform will add 2.4 inches in length, 0.6 inches in width and will be 0.8 inches lower. These new dimensions will also improve interior passenger and cargo space. Ride quality will improve as well with the addition of a new sport-tuned suspension that can currently be found in the Scion FR-S.
Where the current Toyota Prius employs an iconic style, the 2016 Toyota Prius possesses a more athletic demeanor than its predecessor. Longer and sleeker to emulate a runner in the starting blocks, the new Prius will feature a lower hood, higher roof peak, bold sweeping lines and more pronounced backend punctuated by sharp-looking LED taillights. An all-new Hypersonic Red exterior shade will be added to the Toyota Prius color palette as well.
When you climb into the 2016 Toyota Prius cabin, you will discover an interior that makes you the focus. A new wrap-around dashboard design puts all controls within easy reach and improves the style of the new Prius hybrid. New premium style elements will be a highlight of the next-generation Prius interior as well with an available premium white accent package, adding an eye-catching white section to the dash. Safety is another new focus of the new and improved 2016 Toyota Prius design, which will also add the Toyota Safety Sense package to its veritable arsenal of innovative technology features.
We expect the 2016 Toyota Prius to arrive at Allan Nott Toyota this fall and provide Lima-area residents with a new, eye-catching and more efficient Toyota hybrid. Keep an eye on the Allan Nott Toyota inventory for its arrival and schedule a test drive. You won’t be disappointed!
