The Toyota Prii family will be growing later this year with the Toyota Prius V and the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid. Following those two models the Prii family will be joined by the compact Toyota Prius C, due in spring 2012. But thanks to the way the Internet works a leaked brochure of the Toyota Prius C has allegedly been leaked.
A leaked Japanese market brochure shows that the Toyota Prius C will be available in three trim levels including G, S and L. The Prius C will measure 157.3 inches long, 66.7 inches wide and 56.9 inches tall.
The brochure goes on to state that the Prius C will be powered by a 1.4 liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine making 74-hp at 4,800 rpm with a maximum torque of 81.9 lb-ft at 4,800 rpm. The electric-motor will make 61-hp and 125 lb-ft with a CVT. Together, the hybrid system will produce a combine output of 100-hp.

Fuel-economy on the Japanese JC08 driving cycle will come in at 35.4 km/lt (or 83.3 mpg US). Of course, in U.S. terms that will be somewhere close to 50 mpg.
