Toyota Gives 2015 Prius C Hybrid Hatch a Light Makeover

Toyota’s smallest and most fuel-efficient hybrid model, the Prius C hatchback, has received a mild facelift for the 2015MY at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

It gets a reworked front end with standard single LED projector low- and high-beam headlights, new grille and re-sculpted bumper with taller lamps, along with a pair of better- (and less aftermarket-) looking tail lamps, a shark-fin roof antenna, and three new exterior colors named Electric Lime Metallic, Tangerine Splash Pearl and Sparkling Sea Metallic.

On the inside, Toyota says the cabin was upgraded with “premium materials” and new available technology features.

The Prius C’s Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive with a 1.5-liter four-pot gasoline engine and an electric motor that produce a combined 99hp returning 53 MPG city, 50 MPG combined and 46-MPG highway fuel economy remain unchanged.
