Facelifted Toyota Prius to look less futuristic

By Faiming_low on 14 Apr 2018 in New model

Attached Image Rumors of the refreshed Toyota Prius has surfaced and we hear that Toyota wants to make the car less awkward to look at so that sales can improve.

According to an article from CarSensor, the Japanese publication reported that the facelifted Prius will get a mild styling update for 2019, with the changes focused on the front and rear ends. In doing so, the Prius will look more in line with its sibling, the Plug-in Hybrid Prius.

This comes as a surprise as Toyota has been blamed by the media for having designs that are too bland. American Prius sales have dropped and market analysts believe that its futuristic design might be the cause of it.

Along with the design change, the Prius's powertrain could also get a refresh too with gains in its fuel economy numbers.

The new car will debut by end of the year.

This facelift, looks nice from the front but it's the back view with the funny zig-zag lights that was a turnoff for the current Prius so if they correct that, this car can sell I'm sure!

Less futuristic?? You gotta be kidding. The current Prius's front looked like a Kabuki Ko-Omote Mask... This one looks so much better and definitely more futuristic!!
