Spotted: The all-new 2016 Toyota Prius was caught recently undisguised

Hey, guess what treehuggers and hippies, a new Toyota Prius is coming and recently, the Prius Club of Malaysia recently was able to snag some pictures of the new 2016 Toyota Prius, uncovered, during transit in the hull of some cargo plane.

Due for a reveal sometime next week, the new 2016 Prius is destined to enter an entirely new generation, and that’s clearly visible with it’s redesigned exterior, modeled clearly after the latest Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell car.

For one thing, the Prius no longer looks like a blob of anonymity and features much more dramatic and eye-catching styling, which is perfectly OK. One of the constant criticisms we’ve had for the Prius is that it was never entertaining to look at and was rather bland, featureless, and uninteresting. This isn’t to say the new 2016 Prius is a total looker, but for once, it actually looks like something.

Previous reports in the past have suggested the new Prius will get a major boost in fuel economy with the plug-in variant gaining the capability to run up to 30-35 miles on a single charge in pure EV mode.

Otherwise, for the standard model, expect the traditional use of a Atkinson-cycle four-banger mated to a CVT and an electric motor to provide propulsion.

    I recently went into Carmax with the intention of buying a Prius. I test drove one. And… honestly, I didn’t like it. It lacked the excitement of a new car to me. So, I went with a Fiesta. ha.
