Toyota recently launched the fourth-gen Prius hybrid for the Indian market at a price of Rs 38.96 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This new generation model was globally introduced last year and was also exhibited by the Japanese carmaker at the 2016 Auto Expo in India. The car is now on sale through Toyota dealerships across the country. Take a look at the details of the car through these pictures.
This is the latest edition of the Prius that will be available only in the top-end Z8 trim level. It is brought to our country through the CBU route.
This fully imported model is based on the carmaker's TNGA (Toyota New Generation Architecture) platform and gets sharper design cues.
The fascia boasts of edgy headlights and fog lights, both of which get LED illumination. The front makes for a very aggressive look.
Then coming on to the sides, the sloping roofline is carried over from the earlier model, while the rear sports vertically oriented LED tail lamps.
The cabin of the Prius features leather upholstery, heated front seats, heads-up display and dual-zone climate control.
For a customer's infotainment needs, a touchscreen system mated to a 10-speaker JBL audio setup does the duty.
Toyota is known for giving top priority to safety in their cars. So, the Prius is packed with seven airbags, ABS, stability control and traction control.
The new Toyota Prius Hybrid is powered by a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol mill, which works in tandem with an electric motor.
The system's combined power output is 120bhp, while the hybrid powertrain boasts of a company-claimed fuel efficiency of 26.27kmpl.
