ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

  • Toyota has officially revealed the next-generation Prius hatchback
  • The hybrid car will offer radical new styling and a 10 percent increase in gas mileage
  • The 2016 Prius will reach dealerships early next year

The all-new 2016 Toyota Prius has officially been unveiled. Toyota recently pulled the cover off the next-generation version of its popular hybrid hatchback, which boasts a totally new look -- and several other key updates -- compared to the current model.

The biggest change between the new Prius and the outgoing model is on the outside. While the latest Prius retains the same general profile as last year's model, it's totally updated in every area -- from the headlights and taillights to the front bumper, rear roofline and character lines down the sides. Simply put, you won't confuse the old Prius with the new one.

So what else is new? According to Toyota, the new Prius is wider and longer than the outgoing model, which will likely mean more interior room. The hatchback's dashboard, center console and center control stacks are also totally revised with a far more futuristic look than what the current model offers. New features include high-tech safety gadgets such as lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and a forward-collision alert system.

But the biggest question most shoppers will have relates to what's under the hood. Although Toyota hasn't announced specifics, the automaker has confirmed a fuel economy increase of 10 percent compared to the outgoing model; gas mileage could reach as high as 56 miles per gallon in the city and 53 mpg on the highway -- big numbers even compared to today's 51 mpg city/48 mpg hwy.

Unfortunately, Toyota hasn't announced many other details about the Prius -- including pricing, engine size or trim levels. But we expect to know more as the car gets closer to reaching dealers, which Toyota says will happen early next year.

What it means to you: Prius lovers everywhere, get ready: The new and improved 2016 Toyota Prius is headed your way.
