Fourth Prius became Japan’s first-born, was trying on a new modular platform 2018-2019 Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). The new truck has given hybrid vehicle sporty character, complex security systems 2018-2019 Toyota Safety Sense (TSS). The hybrid propulsion system has become more powerful and more economical, high-tech technical stuffing has become more compact and lightweight, the car got the bright body design and stylish interior. In short, the Japanese engineers, constructors, designers and layouts created a car capable of surprise not only for its technology but also the appearance. And the new Prius looks really bright, original sports and even photos and video, especially the new colored enamel Emotional Red (bright red with a deep gloss).
Not knowing that this is a hybrid can easily adopt a new model of 2018-2019 Toyota Motor Corporation for the sports car. Chief designer of the fourth-generation 2018-2019 Toyota Prius Koudzi Toёsima assures that the external similarity of hybrid news from sports-car deliberately created, and eccentric design Japanese news did not stop, and gave a new generation Prius though not polished, but more bright handling than its predecessor.
Let’s all innovations in order, starting with the appearance, but rather point out:
- external dimensions of the body 2018-2019 Toyota Prius 4th generation year – 4540 mm long, 1760 mm wide, 1470 mm height 2700 mm wheelbase.
The front end of the new compact hybrid with the original full LED lighting fixtures, futuristic bumper with a huge mouth lower air intake and aerodynamic plumage bright, compact engine cover with characteristic vyshtampovki and ribs. All items form the look of the predatory, aggressive and powerful car.
Profile of a body devoid of aggressive attraction, but endowed with Flawless aerodynamic lines and curves. It works to achieve the minimum resistance to air flow: the plane tilted forward hood strongly littered back windshield frame, domed roof, window-sill line rising smoothly and even deep vyshtampovki rear wings.
Feed hybrid sports, it is so eager to call the new Prius, this design masterpiece. Starting from a fantastically stylish, sophisticated and simply beautiful vertical position lamps LED with a complex filling, ending with the original spoiler and tailgate.
So phenomenal stylish and original design of a body the fourth Prius is able to eclipse even the hydrogen car is the 2018-2019 Toyota Mirai .
Interior decoration of the new generation 2018-2019 Toyota Prius, of course, as futuristic and fantastic, like the appearance of the hybrid. At the top in the center of the dashboard mounted digital multi-function instrument panel provides the driver with all the necessary information on the wide center console color touch screen multimedia system, just below the climate control unit installation and activation keys providing support functions.
Original and stylish (the material visually similar to bone china) designers drew up a vehicle transmission control zone with a vertical area to accommodate the four-way choice of direction button parking brake and buttons Drive Mode and EV Mode, as well as space on a floor tunnel which carried out the induction charging smartphones (just put your phone and charge it).
Seats for driver and front passenger convenient and comfortable, but in spite of his brave form (anatomical backrest profile, pronounced side bolsters support) do not provide adequate support when cornering. It is gratifying that the seats in the first row is enough for people with growth under 190 cm. Interestingly, sitting in the backseat passengers will be high not complain about the lack of legroom, but the crown will have to prop up the ceiling. All because of the roof dome, a beginner is the rapid decline of the rear seats.

Suspension is fully independent, front MacPherson strut and rear are now installed double wishbones (the previous generation of the back present a simple, semi-dependent suspension with beam). The brakes on a circle with a disk mechanism, the electric power steering.
As we said above, the new modular platform has improved rigidity compared with the previous generation models by as much as 60%, and lower the center of gravity of the car, and designers to reduce the size and weight of components, assemblies, and lithium-ion batteries. Add to all to increase the capacity of the hybrid propulsion system, fully independent suspension and sharp steering … with the result that we get? Perfectly balanced in all respects a hybrid car with a sporty character, like … the Lexus the CT 200h .
