2017 Toyota Prius Leaked by Taiwanese Auto Publication, Is It Real? - Video ... - autoevolution

tw - the 2017 Toyota Prius is the vehicle you can admire in the first four pics of the photo gallery, in normal and plug-in hybrid iteration. Compared to what we’ve seen until today via spy photos and videos, the shape of the prototypes seems to mirror what we can admire in the Taiwanese motoring publication’s images. And what’s with those sculpted lines all over the front bumper, hood and front fenders. All of these questions are the recipe for a headache, so we’ll stop at this and highlight this: the green car at the top is a normal 2017 Toyota Prius, while the stylistically different blue-painted car at the bottom is the 2017 Toyota Prius... Everything else, including the curvature of the roofline, character line, side mirrors, fender flares, and the side skirts, is carried over. Mind you, the 2017 Toyota Prius PHV appears more car-like thanks to a proper front grille, horizontal bars of LED DRLs, and a pair of headlamps inspired by Acura’s Jewel Eye units. It’s a weird car, but we have to admit that it’s also an interesting car at the same time. To measure 4550 x 1770 × 1490 mm, that translates to a fourth-gen Prius that’s longer and wider than its predecessor, all while retaining the height of the outgoing eco-friendly model.
