SPIED! Toyota Prius MPV

2010-11-12 04:58
Our spies spotted Toyota’s Prius in MPV guise during testing in the US.

Taking on the overall size and shape of the Mazda 5, the Prius MPV looks likely to have a five or possibly seven seater configuration. Though the later may involve jump seats in the rear.

Though disguised, the Prius appears larger and seems to have gained in overall length. So far, it’s hard to say if the MPV will sport sliding doors or a traditional five-door setup.

Under the hood the power is set to come from a new 2.5-litre four cylinder engine, which will be mated to a next generation version of Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive. A lithium-ion battery pack should be ready in time for the launch of the MPV.
