It looks pretty good, which probably means Akio didn't have a helping hand when it came to the exterior design lol. The current gen is just plain awful. CEOs really need to leave car design to car designers.

Kirk K was previewing the upcoming powetrains, and it looks like there will be a 2.0L hybrid version with a bit north of 200hp/230tq..... If it keeps the typical Prius lightness, that could be a decently mild hatchback....

Its a step in the right direction. It looks closer to current Corolla models. I’m shocked to say it myself: it does look pretty good.

Watch, Toyota will increase the price $5k, across the board.

If they're able to keep the pricing closer to current Prius, I think this would make an excellent daily.

I don't think it looks like a Tesla, I actually think it looks better. Real buttons on the interior and accent lighting? Way nicer than the austere Tesla interiors

Looks like a tesla nice
Agreed from the side view especially, looks kind of like a Tesla model. But I don't care for the lower rocker arm "angle thing", at least not from this front-side view:
