Toyota has revealed new images and details for the upcoming Prius C light car, ahead of its global unveiling at next month's Tokyo Motor Show. An Australian debut has been confirmed for next year.

The images offer the first confirmed look at Toyota's latest hybrid-driven hatch, loosely based on the Prius C concept that appeared at the Australian International Motor Show earlier this year.

Few technical details have been revealed, although Toyota has confirmed that its hybrid drivetrain will feature a 1.5 litre petrol engine and a "high output" electric motor.

Power figures and driving range remain a secret for now, but fuel economy figures are confirmed to be between 2.5 and 2.8 l/100km.

Figures for the Australian-delivered model will likely be higher, due to the differences between Japanese fuel economy tests and the European test cycle adopted for locally sold cars.

The Prius C measures 3995mm long, making it 110mm longer than the Yaris light car, although both cars share a width of 1695mm.

Height is 1445mm and the wheelbase is 2550mm (Yaris: 1500mm, 2510mm).

Toyota says the Prius C's engine and hybrid components have been positioned for a low centre of gravity, "contributing to spirited driving." Ample luggage space is also promised.

 

Australia

The Prius C will make its Japanese-market debut next month, where it will be sold as the Aqua.

When it hits Australia in the first half of next year, the Prius C will join the Prius V wagon in the growing Prius line-up.
