AllAboutPrius thinks the new hybrid will be getting some companions, but not necessarily in the Toyota showroom. For sure, Lexus is plotting a new stand-alone hybrid--and it could be that the Lexus HS 250h coming to January's Detroit show will actually be a four-door derived from the new Prius. There's also a new coupe on the front burner, to take on Honda's CR-Z hybrid--and wouldn't it be perfect it if was the replacement for the aging Scion tC?
There's more meat on the 2010 Prius' bones, too, according to AllAboutPrius.com. The new car has a more upscale, conservative interior than the second-generation car--which could make it easier to transform into a Lexus. And the 2010 Prius is expected to grow a bit, too, so that rear-seat legroom is improved.
The final word on the new Prius comes as Toyota opens the 2009 Detroit Auto Show--or maybe before that, if the embargo dam breaks as has become the custom. We'll be here to fill you in as soon as more Prius pics and information surface. In the meantime, check out ABP's writeup on the Prius and see more pics over at our 2010 Toyota Prius page.
