Next Prius: Hybrid Dominance Continues

Posted by: David Kiley on October 16, 2008

Don’t expect too much revolution in the next Toyota Prius, due at the Detroit Auto Show in January. From the looks of the exterior, it is very evolutionary. New headlights. A body crease down the side of the car. A more pronounced bulge in the nose. More pronounced foglights the current version.

The new Prius is said to be shorter and wider by a few millimeters. And the four-cylinder engine is said to be larger with more oomph, but with also slightly improved fuel economy.
