(They still sold over 120 000 of the "old" model last year)
No specs from Toyota yet (And why???)
But it is expected to get about 10% better fuel economy. Which is not really a game changer after over 6 years of the current model.
But that doesn't matter, since tons of people are waiting to buy this car.
As far as I am concerned, I do not hate the Prius like so many people do.
I wouldn't buy one. (Because maximum fuel economy isn't my only priority). But I understand people who do.
I actually think the current one looks better.
This new one might be getting too weird. More modern does not mean weirder.
(Something Toyota/Lexus has a hard time to understand in general)
The interior doesn't seem to be an improvement either. Just a bit weirder.
And the "shifter" seems to be in the strangest position ever. Why???
Plus... No more sunroof?
I think this might have a tough time against the much more attractive new Volt.
And the small shifter sticking out like that, what the hell???
Now... What do YOU think?
