On the plus side the Toyota Prius offers up 55mpg combined and this takes some beating, it also drives like a charm. The downside however is that the vehicle has looks that is ugly.
We have recently seen promotion videos and ads showing the smoking tires of the 2018 Toyota Prius and to be honest this isn’t too far from what the hybrid version is able to do. It offers up a sporty ride and this has managed to surprise people that were sceptical about the vehicle.
The Toyota Prius gets its ability from the TNGA platform that it was built on. The next version is going to take the architecture that was seen on the 2017 Toyota C-HR crossover hybrid.
We expect the next gen Toyota Camry to offer up the TNGA platform by the time it arrives in 2018 and while it will offer a ride that is plush and serene, it isn’t going to be the most thrilling of rides. So it looks like it is going to take some lessons from the Toyota Prius.
This is going to go down well for the redesign but whether Toyota can pull punches against the 2018 Honda Accord remains to be seen.
