Toyota Prius + gets refresh in UK, is it coming here?

Filed under: Hybrid , Minivan/Van , Toyota , UK , Design/Style Toyota has unveiled a mid-cycle refresh of its seven-passenger, UK-market Prius +, known here in the US as the five-passenger Prius V . The revised hybrid MPV now boasts looks inspired by Toyota’s more aggressive compact stylings as seen on its new Yaris and Aygo – particularly in the redone front fascia. The new LED headlights are the most obvious change, sporting a sharper style, while the vertical slats that bookend front fascia are much larger and deeper, and are now home to LED running lights. The lower grille is also newly enlarged and trimmed in black plastic. Changes out back are far less noticeable, with the biggest tweak being a new diffuser that’s been integrated into the rear bumper. The interior gets a light freshening, too, with fresh trimmings around the switchgear, as well as a new 4.2-inch TFT display in the center mounted instrument cluster. The latter includes a new “Eco Judge” function designed to help owners drive more efficiently through a point-based reward system. Cosmetics aside, Toyota has also tweaked the suspension damping, added additional sound deadening and adjusted the powertrain to comply with Euro6 emission standards. Now, what’s all this mean for our Toyota Prius V? Will we see a similar refresh to our US market vehicle?
