2017 Toyota Prius launched in India at Rs. 38.96 lakh

Toyota has launched the fourth-gen Prius hybrid in India at a price of Rs. 38,96,040 (ex-showroom, Delhi). In India, the Prius will be available only in the top-end Z8 trim level and will be brought into the country through the CBU route.

Powering the new Prius Hybrid is a 1.8-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that works in tandem with an electric motor. The combined power output of the system is 120 BHP, while the hybrid powertrain has a company-claimed fuel economy figure of 26.27 km/l.

Based on the TNGA (Toyota New Generation Architecture) platform, the fourth-gen Prius gets sharper design cues. The front fascia is characterized by edgy headlamps and fog lights, both of which get LED illumination. The side profile continues to feature a sloping roofline, while the rear gets vertically oriented LED taillights.

Features on offer with the new Prius include leather upholstery, heated front seats, heads-up display and dual-zone climate control. Infotainment duties are handled by a touchscreen system mated to a 10-speaker JBL audio setup. Safety features include seven airbags, ABS, stability control and traction control.
