2012 TOYOTA PRIUS

Toyota's third-generation Prius has come in for its first update since it hit the streets in 2009, gaining a number of subtle styling tweaks and a few new tricks.

For 2012, Toyota's penciljacks have sharpened the corners of the Prius' face, sketching out a revised front bumper with a taller bottom grille incorporating relocated foglights.

Flanking the grille are redesigned indicator housings, and LED daytime running lights have been slipped in beneath. The headlights have also gained an LED update.

Changes to the rear are less obvious, although the braking LEDs have been reshaped to the countour of the tail-light lens. There are also power-folding side mirrors and new alloy wheel options.

Venture inside and you'll find a darker space, with the updated Prius dropping its graphite grey for a shot of black (it's the new black). There are also new silver highlights, and new standard trim materials.

The centre stack has been given a gunmetal brushed aluminium look, while the power button gets a hybrid-blue hue.

Toyota has also updated the display, adding a sharp new 'Vacuum Flourescent Display' for a clearer image.

Mechanically, the Prius remains unchanged for 2012. Power is provided by a 73kW 1.8 litre petrol engine paired with a 60kW electric motor, and fuel consumption is listed at 3.9 l/100km.

 

Australia

The updated 2012 Prius is expected to make its Australian debut early next year. Watch this space for more details.

In 2012, Toyota will introduce the larger Prius V to the Australian market. Exact dates have not been confirmed however.
