Toyota Shows Latest Prius and C-HR @ Tokyo Motor Show 2015

Toyota brought a number of important vehicles to the Tokyo Motor Show this year, but the two that really stood out were the C-HR Concept and the all-new Prius. The Prius is important for a number of reasons. Increased range and improved all-electric modes are key to making it competitive in a market where hybrids are facing competition from other alternative fuel vehicles.

Prius-4

From the sample shown, it can be said that the new Prius is going for a more conservative look. We remember the previous Prius models being a lot more polarising on the inside. This one is still futuristic and plastic-clad, but has a toned down look about it.

Prius-5

Boot space is generous and the Prius retains its hatch/lift back  form but takes the exterior to interesting places with this generation.

Prius-3 Prius-1

The front end takes obvious cues from its hydrogen powered sibling, the Mirai yet manages to maintain the Prius’ signature look.

Design-wise however, Toyota really stretched its legs with the C-HR. The crossover apparently is a four-door with hidden rear door handles to give it the look of a coupe. We really like this one and hope to see a production version soon to inject some competition in the market.
