Unveiling the Updated 2025 Toyota Prius

The Prius has become famous as one of the first hybrid cars in the world. He gained popularity because of his low price and gas mileage, which were never seen before. But in the last few years, sales numbers have failed, and Toyota needs to do something to increase the popularity of the Prius. So they fully redesigned the Prius for the 2023 model year, and he got a new exterior and interior. It also comes with a much stronger engine option. For a 2025 Toyota Prius, we also expect a few big changes, including a new info-intertainment system. A new, more luxurious interior with better-quality materials.
But probably the biggest change that we expected for a new generation of Prius is a new truck-ready model that will get a GR nameplate. Also, a lot of rumors are spreading around that the Prius will be offered in a redesigned electric package. That can be a step in the right direction for Toyota because the market is demanding electric cars.

2025 Toyota Prius GR

The 2025 Toyota Prius GR will be the ultimate truck-ready Prius. With the improved engine, suspension, and aerodynamics, it will bring the Prius to a never-before-seen-before habitat for this model.

The engine that Toyota will use will be the same 2.0-liter engine as a standard model, but it will be tuned for 330 horsepower. And it will receive a bigger electric motor instead of the small, economical one that is used in the regular model. The improved powertrain will not be the only reason for improved performance. The whole car will be a lot lighter thanks to composite materials that will be used in the body and improved race suspension. Also, the aerodynamics of the car will be improved, and we can expect the car to look as sporty as ever before. This model will probably be produced in a limited series, and the price is at this moment unknown.

Specifications

The upcoming 2025 model of the Prius will have a more potent engine than previous years’ models. It will remain the well-known gasoline 2.0 engine with a small electric motor, but the power will bump from 220 horsepower to 235 thanks to ECU modifications. The thing that will stay the same is impressive gas mileage (up to 58 MPG in combined driving).

Also, this 2025 model will get a small bump in electric range thanks to the bigger batteries used. From the previous 40-mile range, a 2025 model will have 55 miles. The car will also have the same front-wheel drive with an option for all-wheel drive. Also, the acceleration from 0 to 60 will be improved to 6.9 seconds.

Toyota Prius EV

The most interesting change for the 2025 Toyota Prius will be the introduction of a fully electric model. There is no official news from Toyota about this. However the car market is moving in that direction, and it is expected that Toyota will fully electrify its vehicles by 2030.
This model will have a lot of differences from a regular Prius. Starting from the exterior, we expect a more futuristic design with redesigned headlights and daily lights. The engine and powertrain will be different, and we expect a dual-motor setup that will produce up to 400 horsepower. This will give a Prius a new dimension and newer, never-before-seen power. The electric variant will have a range of up to 350 miles and all-wheel drive. Also, it will support quick charging, which will allow the car to, after 25 minutes of charging. Get up to 60 miles of range.

2025 Toyota Prius Changes

The changes for the upcoming 2025 Toyota Prius will not be many. We expect some minor interior and exterior changes, but the biggest will be the info-intertainment system. The new info-intertainment system will get a bigger 12-inch touchscreen and new software. The new software will be easier to use and take more initiative. Also, the graphic will be more responsive, and loading will be faster.

The 2025 model will keep some of the organizational safety features that are a surprise for a car of this price, but the interesting innovation will be updated with new safety software (Toyota Sense 3.0).

Price and Release Date

The release date of the new 2025 Toyota Prius should be in Q2 of 2024. With a starting price of around $28.000 for a base LE trim, that will go up to $35.000 for a premium trim.

The new model of the Prius brings interesting changes, but will it help him keep up with other interesting cars on the market?
The competitors will be the hybrid SUVs in the same price range as the Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, and Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid.
