The Toyota Aqua, also known as Toyota Prius C in some markets has come up with a newer look. The all new Toyota Aqua 2018 is Toyota’s smallest hybrid, the Toyota Aqua has adopted a more SUV look.
The new Aqua have a tough and sporty look, the changes are fairly prominent with a new front and a modified hood.
Let’s take a detailed look of the Toyota Aqua 2018 model:
The new Aqua is significantly bigger in size from its predecessor. Its design lives up to its SUV-look.
A sportier look has been created, the hood has been reshaped and a large hexagonal grille has been introduced.
The rear of the vehicle has been ramped up by narrow taillights and bumper, which is slightly more squared than the previous one.
According to the official announcements improvements have been made since the vehicle is now considered spacious and more comfortable.
Previously, it was argued that Toyota models from 2018 and onward will either have CarPlay or Android Auto connectivity feature, but that is not the case. Toyota is still keen on introducing its own proprietary infotainment system instead.
The lightly revised interior includes a refreshed center stack and an updated steering wheel.
The gasoline-electric powertrain is left unchanged. All Prius C models once again utilize a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and two AC motor/generators that produce a combined 99 horsepower.
The larger motor/generator is geared directly to the final-drive differential to provide propulsion and to generate electricity during deceleration.
The smaller AC unit collaborates with the combustion engine through a planetary gearset to power the wheels with electronically controlled drive ratios, often called an electronic CVT.
The car also has an ECO mode for even greater efficiency, as well as the ability to travel solely on electric power for about a mile at speeds under 25 mph.
