The HSD platform hosts the same type on Atkinson petrol engine, 1.8 liters and 98 horsepower, aided by a 80 horse power unit. The combined power sums 134 horsepower, enough for a model that size.

The low aerodynamic coefficient (0.29) makes the consumption values to be within narrow limits. V Prius consumes 5.6 liters of gasoline in urban agglomerations, 6.2 liters and 5.9 liters on the highway in mixed traffic conditions.

Inside, the audience gets a new multimedia system, named Entune, which allows the use of mobile phone applications and Bing Internet utility to obtain traffic information, fuel prices, weather or the latest sports results.

With the unveiling of the new MPV, Toyota officials have confirmed that the new lineup of hybrids will take the name of the pioneer Prius, as previously anticipated.
