It looks like we are about to see some big changes for the 2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover. The “versatile” derivate of the iconic hybrid family is about to come completely new next year. This redesign will include various kinds of changes and some of them will be pretty radical. Moreover, we can say that the new version will be a completely new car.
To remind you, the original model came in 2011. It is basically a minivan, although some consider it a hatchback. On the other side, a test mule of the new generation has been a spotter and we can clearly see big turnarounds. The new generation will come as a crossover. Besides completely new body style, we are about to see various other changes. Those will include things like new architecture, interior design, powertrain and many other things.
2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover redesign
This redesign will bring much more changes that we could expect. The new 2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover will come with a completely new body style, besides all other interesting changes. First of all, it is important to mention that the new model will ride on the company’s new TNGA platform. This architecture will provide many benefits. Besides usual things like weight savings, it comes with a completely independent rear suspension. This is something that we haven’t see in earlier Prius models. Among other benefits, this will provide better handling, especially in corners. This architecture is already in use, so we can presume that the 2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover will come with all those benefits as other models from the Prius family. This includes things like noise reduction and smoother overall ride. Besides new platform, we are about to see a completely new styling, as well as cabin design.
2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover exterior and interior design
Naturally, the most notable changes for all redesigns are in terms of styling. The 2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover will not be an exception. Moreover, we are about to see a completely new body style, since the new generation will be a crossover. The new model will feature a classic crossover appearance. Compared to the outgoing model, we will see a much higher ground clearance, squared roofline and plenty of other new details. Of course, the new 2019 Prius V Crossover will adopt the new design language of Prius family. The additional dose of attractiveness will be provided with the new sloping-rear end design.
When it comes to the interior, we expect that the new crossover will feature a familiar cabin design, something that we can see on other new models from this iconic family of hybrid cars.
2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover powertrain
Exact details about powertrain are still unclear. There are two possibilities for the new crossover. The first one is a familiar combination of 1.8-liter gasoline engine and electric motor, which gives a total output of 121 horsepower. However, we presume that the company will go for some power potent variant. So, the new 2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover could use the same powertrain as Camry Hybrid.
This sedan features a 2.5-liter gasoline engine in a combination with an electric motor. This powertrain features a max output of 208 horses, which sounds much better. Also, there are reports that suggest new crossover could come in the all-electric version as well. However, those are just rumors at the moment.
2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover release date and price
The 2019 Toyota Prius V Crossover will come already next year. We still don’t know the exact price, but some reports suggest that the base model will go around 27.500 dollars.
