2019 Toyota Prius V Exterior
What It Is: The next-generation version of Toyota’s Prius V hatchback caught testing at the last location you’d suspect to find a Prius: Germany’s Nürburgring circuit. Location aside, the new V is a substantial departure from today’s model, which is a homely, slightly bulbous wagonlet that looks almost vanlike. The V is sold alongside the Prius’s traditional five-door liftback and compact-hatch Cforms, and this new version ditches the old V’s dowdy duds for a taller ride height and a more SUV-like shape.
Why It Matters: Toyota has set the pace among hybrids since the Prius first landed in the United States in 2000, but this new V indicates that maybe the company has begun to follow. Specifically, the V’s newly crossover-like stance and shape seem similar in concept to Kia’s current Niro. Kia, for its part, calls the front-wheel-drive Niro a crossover. Lifting the wagonoid V and squaring it off should amp up its popularity while bestowing on it the coveted “crossover” label.
Platform: Just as the latest Prius liftback switched to the fresh Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), so, too, will this V. The lighter, more sophisticated underpinnings should elevate refinement, reducing road, wind, and tire noise and providing a smoother ride thanks to its new-to-Prius independent rear suspension. Today’s V, C, and pre-TNGA Prius made do with a torsion-beam rear axle.
