Toyota Prius Persona Series

Japanese carmaker Toyota does not have a moment of peace. Despite the tragic natural disasters and all, they keep on going and with their head up. It seems that the specialists have in plan to offer the new Toyota Prius Persona Series on the North American market. The ones interested in the model are actually people who are looking for a car with style. We will find it in an exclusive Black Cherry Pearl paint, but another two, Black and Blizzard Pearl, will also be available. To send the output to the wheels, the engineers have provided 17-inch alloy wheels. To improve the interior, the designers have offered black SofTex seats and red contrast stitching. The gear shift ring, the doors and steering wheel have dark chrome trim. Under the hood, the new Toyota Prius Persona Series will feature a hybridized 1.8-liter 4-cylinder unit capable of generating 134 horsepower. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 9.8 seconds and to reach a top speed of 112 mph.

The Japanese carmaker has established a starting price of $27.130 for the Toyota Prius Persona Series. Actually, the retail price suggested by the manufacturer has been increased by $200 on each of the five Prius equipment levels. The Prius V has really small pricing increases over 2012 pricing ranging from $100 to $155. The Prius V Two has increased to $26.650, up from $26.550. The price of the Prius V Three has increased to $27.415 from $27.315. The Toyota Prius V Five has the most equipment and its price has increased to $30.295 from $30.140. When it comes to the 2013 Prius Plug-in, the carmaker did not announce any modifications price-related or any modifications when it comes to the equipment.
