Dropped from the sky onto the stage, the groundbreaking hybrid’s entrance caused a flurry amongst automotive journalists, who swarmed the car, each armed with a 5D and a point of view.

The new Prius is a lower, longer automobile than its predecessors. With a design inspired by “a runner in the starting blocks,” the sporty nose of the car could take off your kneecaps as it sprints down city blocks.

Showing off an all-new Toyota hue, “Hypersonic Red,” the 2016 Prius definitely has some character. Expect the car to catch your eye on the road sometime next year.
