2019 Toyota Prius Plus – Adopting a Sportier Look

The 2019 Toyota Prius Plus is set to undergo a drastic transformation as far as the exterior is concerned to give it a significantly different appearance compared to the previous model. While the current Prius Plus has a typical compact MPV outward look, the 2019 version is poised to assume a crossover SUV shape. The vertical height of the vehicle will be raised, presumably to make the cabin more spacious and comfortable. However, the model Prius Plus will also have increased ground clearance, with an extended wheelbase and larger wheels. Although this new Prius will be larger than its predecessor, it is expected to retain its wedge-shaped profile to ensure optimum aerodynamics.

In the Toyota Prius Plus Hybrid there are now more headroom and legroom. This is a result of the vehicle’s upward and horizontal size adjustments. The interior cabin will feature heated leather seats, accommodating between five to seven passengers.

The car will be fitted with the new Toyota Entune multimedia system. This system comes with integrated GPS navigation, satellite radio, multimedia connectivity and a high-end audio system. Through this system, users will also be able to receive weather updates, financial stock market reports and sports news.

The Toyota is expected to improve on the drive system to increase the vehicle’s power to up to 121 horsepower. However, the new 2019 Toyota Prius Plus could also come with a four-wheel drive option.

Safety Features

The car will also have a Vehicle Proximity Notification System. This is a safety feature that emits a sound to warn pedestrians whenever the vehicle is approaching at low speeds. This is a crucial feature since the Prius is known to have a very quiet engine. And on many occasions, pedestrians are caught unawares when the vehicle is approaching. It will also be able to easily tackle the more rugged terrain.
