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.
