The next generation of the Toyota Prius is about to hit dealerships. So far, only the regular Prius has been shown, but things could change shortly: at the New York Auto Show, Toyota will bring a new version of its most popular hybrid vehicle.
The only information we have so far is the above image: in it, we can see that the rear end will be very different. Instead of the vertical taillights of the 2016 Prius, this upcoming car will have two C-shaped lights joined by a center LED strip.
So what could this car be? The most obvious choice would be either the subcompact Prius c or the Prius v (which Toyota calls a crossover), since both these models are still riding on the last-generation’s platform. We also expect the plug-in variant to be launched, but it would be surprising if this version would feature a different rear end.
There is a fourth option: the image makes us think that this car could actually be a sedan. Would a four-door Prius sell well?
We will know more on March 23.
