    I'll try live-posting some interesting tidbits throughout the reveal.
    • The standard Prius has 65.5 cu ft of cargo space, but the AWD-e loses almost 3 cu ft for some reason, down to 62.7.
    • AWD-e model will be offered in LE and XLE grades and will debut a new two-tone 15-inch alloy wheel (with cover).

    Nope, no mention. I'd expect that we get something around the December 12th.

    Since it is in the Gen 4 forum, yes.
    The Prime / Plugins have their own area.

    I woke up this morning thinking about the concept: 4th gen Prius with All Wheel Drive: this minimal ground clearance, plastic-clad, chandelier-fragile sculpture of a car, with exterior sensors that crust-up with salt spray and snow (leaving your glossy-black Darth Vader display awash with warnings), plastic under-panels that catch and tear off, just getting out of snowy parking spots. Of all the cars I can picture for rugged/snowy conditions, the Prius? I don't know.

    our daughter just picked up an impreza for upstate new york winter driving. 26/36 mpg, it will be interesting to hear how their i-sight system works in that weather.

    I didn't see it in the North American press releases but the AWD-e version of the Prius has the same ground clearance as the Gen 3 in Japan.

    Also, it appears that non-SUVs are starting to get AWD as an option. The next gen Nissan Altima will get an AWD option and that's coming out soon (if it isn't already in dealership lots).

    It uses two cameras at the top of the windshield so it's less exposed to the elements. The thing that could potentially throw it off is the exhaust from the cars in front that will obscure the view and thus the cameras can't see the shapes of cars due to the water vapour from the exhaust. (It is listed in the owner's manual as part of the "situations where Eye-Sight may not work properly")

    The new Hybrid Corolla sounds great But I do like a hatchback. Wow, some good choices to mull over. My wife has a 2018 Prius and I love it. I will be traded my 2010 if a few years.

    Perhaps by then there will be a Hybrid Corolla Hatchback. We have the gas Hatchback now.

    I keep thinking: Toyota will resist Corolla hybrid, it's too close to Prius?

    They have the HYBRID Corolla here, I believe in all 3 models. But - before you think of one, check the boot (trunk) - it's tiny. I reckon my old KE10B had a bigger boot (though it was a sedan). It's also down considerably in l/100km (only 4.2 compared with 3.4) - that's 20% better for PRIUS.

    Of course the anti-PRIUS press reckon the COROLLA is the better buy - they reckon because it looks odd. Plus it's $4500 cheaper. But the PRIUS has better interior space and better economy.
