New looks, updated cabin for Toyota Prius c

The Toyota Prius c has been given a fresh new look for 2015 with prices also dropping a thousand dollars thanks to the new Free Trade Agreement with Japan.

Unveiled today, and arriving in dealerships now, the 2015 Toyota Prius c boasts a more aggressive look with a new hexagonal grille and redesigned front bumper.

Look closely and you might also notice new wheel covers on the entry-level model, updated LED taillights and three vibrant new paint colours.

While, inside, the Prius c gets a new darker look with new upholstery and a redesigned centre stack now with larger switches and a multi-purpose climate-control dial.

But the changes aren’t all cosmetic; Toyota has also tweaked the Prius c suspension for better handling, steering and ride.

The hybrid drive-train, that produces 74kW and up to 169Nm remains the same, and the Prius c retains its frugal 3.9/100kms combined fuel consumption rating.

Priced from just $22,990 for the base-model and $25,990 for the top-spec i-Tech, Toyota’s executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said the latest Prius c improvements add to the appeal of Australia’s most affordable hybrid.

“Prius c is a smaller and lighter sibling to the Prius hatch yet it still provides ample space for five adults thanks to Toyota’s clever solutions,”

“A great example is the placement of the hybrid battery and fuel tank under the rear seat, which means there is also room for plenty of luggage and a full-size spare wheel.”
