    We've heard European rumours from our European members.

    • Apple CarPlay
    • 2 Rear USB Ports
    • Base model gets Scout GPS (3-year subscription included)
    • Safety Connect (3-year subscription included)
    • Midnight Black Metallic will be an option
    • Supersonic Red replaces Hypersonic Red
    • Moonstone Interior will be slightly modified

    OK, so far even if the rumor materializes, none of them seems to be an improvement for me, ;)

    lol. Supersonic Red is on the new 2019 Prius. It's a brighter, redder red than Hypersonic. (It'll also show up on the 2020 Camry and Avalon TRD models)

    They're not rumours :)

    5 seats? Does this mean the back can now seat 3 passengers?

    Did they find a use for that half a spare tire well? Sit on the battery and have a place for your feet.

    Give it some time and any red will be deemed offensive altogether and replaced with Safe Space Blue...

    Fixed that for you. Blues & grays are the worst colors to see at a distance. White is one of the best for distant visibility.

    Do you guys think Toyota will ever release an AWD Prime? That would be the ultimate vehicle for me. Seems like there would be battery packaging problems with that setup though. (y)

    I suspect that if the AWD needs the NiMH for the cold weather as Toyota states, that will be a deal-breaker to put it in the Prime. You would have to change the battery in the Prime to something will less density.

    Yes, like a regular Prius. It'll have the same seat design as the regular Prius. I like the Prime's design because it mimics the front seat's design and thus look like two bucket seats.

    No. Not with this generation. I already asked the assistant chief engineer in 2016.
