Toyota Prius Facelift
Toyota Prius Facelift PreviewThe Toyota Prius had set a new benchmark in the hybrid car segment with a blend of luxury and high performance parameters. Toyota India is all set to introduce the facelift version of Prius with upgraded exterior styling, and improved luxury and utility features. The Toyota Prius Facelift 2017 will have a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor with a Nickel-Metal hydride (NiMH) battery. An advanced safety system, including eight airbags, vehicle stability control system, ABS with EBD and vehicle proximity notification system, can be expected.
The Toyota Prius Facelift exteriors will feature Bi-LED projector headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED tail lamps. The aerodynamic design of the body with sleek styling of bonnet and front bumpers, followed by smooth flow contours on the body panels and glossy paint options are expected to give it a dynamic and elegant stance. The power-operated heated and foldable ORVMs with blind spot monitor alert system and the stylish 17” 5-spoke alloy wheels would be featured in this model.
The Toyota Prius Facelift interiors will feature a digital instrument cluster with display of key information on the status of the vehicle, including shift-position and EV/ECO/POWER mode indicators. The dashboard will have a centrally-mounted 4.2” multi-information display with energy monitoring, hybrid system indicator, driver support system, and a steering wheel with control buttons for comfort and convenience of usage. The seats matrix will have 6-way adjustable driver and co-passenger seats, and a rear seat with 60:40 split and fold for extending the boot space.
Expected Engine & Transmission
The Toyota Prius Facelift specifications will have a 4-cylinder 1.8 L engine DOHC with Variable Valve Timing-intelligent technology, delivering a power output of 97 PS at 5200 rpm and torque of 142 Nm at 3600 rpm. The drive train is connected with the hybrid technology featuring a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor with power output of 71 PS and 163 Nm torque. The electronically-controlled variable transmission is used for varying the speed and torques, and the drive is given to all wheels.
The Toyota Prius Facelift mileage figures are expected to range at 13 to 15 kmpl in standard driving conditions with the engine as the power source. The hybrid mode can extend the fuel efficiency depending upon the driving mode selected and driving conditions.
Expected Braking and Safety
The Toyota Prius Facelift 2017 braking system will have power-assisted ventilated disc brakes at the front and solid disc brakes at the rear. The integrated regenerative braking system would include Brake Assist for efficient braking operation. The safety features will include surround protection with eight airbags, including front and rear curtain shield airbags, and ABS with EBD.
Expected Performance and Handling
The Toyota Prius Facelift features would include an electric power steering with power-assisted rack and pinion, and cruise control for comfort and convenience on long drives. The hybrid system would be supported with various mode selection options, such as EV/ECO/POWER for getting an ideal combination of power and fuel efficiency. The driving dynamics in this version have been upgraded with vehicle stability control and traction control system with adaptability according to the drive mode selection.
What do we think about
The Toyota Prius Facelift 2017 will be an upgraded version of the Prius with improved performance, and premium quality luxury features and equipment.
The main competition for the Toyota Prius Facelift 2017 would be from the sibling model Toyota Camry Hybrid. However, the upgraded performance parameters and advanced technical equipment on offer would give the Prius Facelift an edge over other models.
