What’s the next plan for 2024 Toyota Prius? When the 2012 Prius was launched, it was designed as the ‘cheaper version’ of Prius, having a tag price from $21,500 to $23,000 within subcompact hybrid section. Two trims are offered, with four cylinder unit of 1.5 liter capacity is paired with one electric motor to generate 99 hp and 83 Nm of torque. This alone is satisfying enough for city cruise as you can explore the road safely and comfortably. The 2024 Toyota Prius model is said to come with more compact design and more features, making it super ideal for city commute that won’t hurt your wallet.
For 25 years, the Toyota Prius has been unmistakable in terms of design. Its peculiarity makes it instantly recognizable, and it’s more aerodynamic than comparable mass-market compact cars. The Japanese report suggests that the new-generation Prius would be a sporty coupe to improve its desirability instead of a plain-jane family car. We speculate that Toyota might target a drag coefficient of 0.24 or lower. Best car also reported that the interior of the 2024 Toyota Prius would be its highlight without offering details.

The Exterior Redesigned Work
There won’t be any major changes happening to the 2024 Toyota Prius model although some smaller changes can be expected. For a starter, the upcoming 2024 Toyota Prius model comes with LED (high and low beam) headlights, along with daytime running lights and LED taillights. There would be wheel arch moldings, protective sheathing (with silver accents), and roof rail accents for the new model. Expect a shark fin antenna (with different hue) to create a dynamic and modern look. Plus, you can also expect the rear spoiler with body color and also 15-inches of wheels (from alloy) with 8-spoke design.
The 2024 Toyota Prius would be smaller when compared to its rivals, but its wheelbase is around 100.4 inches. If you compare the Prius with Honda Fit, they are almost similar in dimensions. But when compared to Chevy Bolt EV, the Bolt is an inch taller.
The Interior Redesigned Work
Many have stated that the 2024 Toyota Prius lacks of premium vibe for the cabin although it is better (and more superior) than the others. With two trim level, you can expect improved ambiance for convenient drive. The upholstery is covered in high-quality cloth and the entrance seats are spacious enough. However, the back area is pretty cramped, especially for taller passengers.
Although the new Prius is said to accommodate five people, it’s actually more ideal for four people – or you can take two adults on the front and three kids at the back. For a small hatchback, this one offers quite roomy legroom and headroom when compared to the others.
Powertrain and Performance
The upcoming 2024 Toyota Prius would be running with four cylinder 1.5 liter unit that is paired with one electric motor and CVT to deliver hybrid performance. Although the output is ‘only’ 99 hp, it should be enough as a solid (and eco-friendly) city ride. This may not be the sporty or fast rice, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t look good in it!
Release Date, Trims, and Price
The base Prius is set at around $21,500, excluding $930 for destination charge. Expect to pay around $22,500 for the total. The LE model comes with $23,000 tag, still excluding the destination charge. If you have to compare the Prius with other rivals, Honda Fit may cost less of $5000 when compared to Prius, but Fit is the non-hybrid type. The Chevy Bolt hybrid even costs $37,500 – even far greater than Prius. Naturally, the 2024 Toyota Prius comes with the proper tag price that is worth the performance.
