The 2015 Toyota Prius c has been introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show and will go on sale in the near future. Compared to the previous model year, the model now comes with standard low & high beam LED headlights, a slightly revised grille, updated taillights, shark-fin antenna and three exterior colors called Sparkling Sea Metallic, Tangerine Splash Pearl and Electric Lime Metallic. On the inside, Toyota says they have installed “premium materials” while the NVH levels have been diminished. In addition, the model has received more technological goodies but exact details are not available at this point.
Motivation of the 2015 Toyota Prius c is provided just like before from the same naturally-aspirated four-cylinder 1.5-liter gasoline engine rated at 73 bhp (54 kW) and 111 Nm (82 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the on-board electric motor, the vehicle has a combined output of 99 bhp (74 kW) and according to EPA it returns 53 mpg in the city, 46 mpg on the highway and 50 mpg in the combined cycle, with the nickel-metal 144-volt battery pack placed under the rear passenger seats.
There’s no word about pricing but most likely the 2014MY price tag will be retained so expect the revised variant to kick off from $19,080.
