Yup. The 2010 version is fine to my eye, though at the time it was a little more edgy than it looks now. The current (pre-2023) is just too quirky. I like the new lines of the 2023.

Not sure about the 2 inches lower (read that somewhere), though. I hope they kept the interior headroom somehow--there was barely enough as it is, especially in the back seat, or so my 6'3" son tells me.

Now it looks like every other car whereas the old style was distinctive.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

No, every other car now looks like a Prius.

The lines are basically the 3rd gen. 2010-2015 which is what most Prius owners wanted back. The 2016-present is just plain ugly.

I think the new looks great! Now if I can keep my wife in her 2015, she's drooling over the new one.

My wife's 2015 she picked up last Fall.

Now they just need to bring back the Prius V with a little lift and they can sell them like hotcakes!

That was my thought as well.


Now it looks like every other car whereas the old style was distinctive.

Now every other car isn't better looking than a Prius.


Among its features, good looks has never been a consideration.

Its looks never bothered me, I just never found them an attractive looking car.

In contrast, the Volt started out catching my eye, and get even better looking 'till the end.

It's also about to where the 2012 Volt was for range.

Maybe a double or triple click, or special button (like the trunk button) on the remote, or a button on the driver's door pops one or both of them open.

That would be cool.

Seriously? My first thought was it was an artist rendering or a mock up where they forgot the rear door handles. My second thought was maybe it doesn't actually have rear doors? My never,-ever-in-a-million-years thought was they put the door handles in the windows. dunno smiley

That's going to be "great" for Uber and Lyft; no one will know how to open the rear doors. smiley-laughing001

That's a very nice touch.

Keeps the design very tidy, and helps keep the door's finish pristine.

I dislike seeing the fingernail marks around car door handles.

But— they do buff out.

It's decently quick now, but I can't help but feel annoyed that it's not as fast as the RAV 4 prime. Well, not even close. I wonder how the fake shifting on the CVT is? Does it actually help?

Edit: I forgot to say that they actually already made a better looking Prius, which was the Corolla Hybrid. Pretty much the same car, just normal looking.

Chevy Sonic hatchback and possibly other cars had that type of handle for about 10 years or more

If I'm not mistaken, the Sonic is not an approved vehicle for Uber and Lyft. Too small.

Still under 40 miles/charge, and I bet my 2017 Volt would run circles around the new Prius in terms of acceleration etc.

Believe it or not the Prius is a bit quicker than the volt, not that it makes it any more a “performance car”. The volt feels plenty quick though.
