2016 Prius Release date

Toyota took to the city that all but invented buzz and excitement, Las Vegas, to show off its latest achievement, the 2016 Toyota Prius. In the lead up to the presentation, Toyota promised a new, sleeker version of the Prius and promising a wider appeal for one of the world’s bestselling hybrid vehicles. Toyota of Naperville expects the 2016 Prius release date to fall sometime this winter. Not only did Toyota make the exterior of the 2016 Prius more exciting with a brand new shape, but this is also the first Toyota vehicle to use Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA).

TNGA is the first step in the company’s concerted effort to have more commonality of components between vehicles, with the goal being to increase reliability and performance while reducing cost across the board. Basically, the Toyota roster will be broken up into groups and each group of vehicles will be able to share parts and components.

One of the biggest pieces of news that came out of the presentation showing off the 2016 Prius is the new stance the hybrid car has on the road. Before the 2016 Prius release date, customers of Toyota of Naperville, will learn more about the changes made to the car. This includes its dimensions. For 2016, the Prius is 2.4 inches longer, .6 inches wider and .8 inches lower to the ground. These changes have accomplished two goals, not only does the new 2016 Prius offer more room for passengers but its lowered stance gives the driver more feel on the road and improves the responsiveness of the new 2016 Prius.

As it applies to the new design of the 2016 Prius, the Toyota badge on the vehicle’s nose essentially marks its center of gravity. The badge of the Toyota Prius is at the same height of the impressive Scion FR-S sports coupe. This shows how serious Toyota designers were about improving the handling of the new vehicle.
