    Here's the reveal video:

    52 MPG on the AWD-e version.
    Available in January 2019.
    Price probably coming middle of next month.

    Wonder how the exterior lights look when on in person, would be interesting if the reverse and turn signals are LED now..

    I think the cosmetic changes are good, and AWD is a nice option for some (and I would welcome it, but not critical). HOWEVER, how can they still not include CarPlay on their “tech flagship”? Almost every other model has it for 2019....? Even the new Corolla they announced at the same time. I have to think that Corolla Hybrid is going to take some sales from Prius, since some of the tech is even better.

    Also, interesting there is no mention of Prime. I realize it is a year behind in the mid-cycle refresh, but is it possible they will add CarPlay to the Prime as a differentiator (along with the 5th seat)? One can hope.... :whistle:;)

    I agree. They left off the obnoxious big black grille.

    My 2017 Prius Two begs to differ... ;) So does many of the current Camry Hybrids.

    Oops. You're correct. Perhaps a typo??

    Where is that mentioned?

    It was mentioned in the video earlier for the Corolla. I would expect it on the Prius too.

    In Canada, AWD-e will be available as a fully loaded model (unlike the US).

    Base, Technology and Technology with Advance Package for AWD trims. Tech w/ Adv will feature the 11.6” HD screen.

    The AWD trim is projected to account for 65% of Canadian Prius sales.

    Mine hasn't got knobs - I think they put them in USA only. GRRRRR.:(:(:(:(

    Maybe in USA which is only market to get the huge ugly screen - see picture on my post #10 - we've still got the white, thankfully.

    I'll be surprised if Australia gets AWD-e - we don't really need it. I'd just like knobs!! And better seats.

    Mine is a 2016 model so I won't be in the market for some time. It is nice to see they got rid of the sharp lines on the front. I do like my Z tail lights.

    Only thing wrong with the Z tail lights - you have to get out of the car to see them :cool:.
