As it was known earlier, Prius C are preparing to discontinue. It will happen next year. Meanwhile, it became known which model is designed to replace the hybrid. Some buyers are expected to be directed toward the Corolla Hybrid, whose fuel consumption is almost the same. However, the main replacement will be a hybrid version of the Toyota Yaris.

The most budget car of the company will be significantly reworked. The current version is almost 9 years old, so the new generation is not far off. It should be noted that although sales of the Toyota Yaris have slowed, it remains in the top three in its segment. However, the company was not in a hurry to upgrade, since the cost of upgrading is very high, and the profitability of urban Yaris-type cars is low.

Toyota dealers have already been informed that the next generation Yaris, which will go on sale in the first half of next year, will be available with a choice of a gasoline engine and a hybrid system. He will receive an expanded set of safety technologies and driver assistance, including emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and a traffic sign recognition system. This will significantly affect the price. So, now the model is available at a price of 15,990 US dollars, and the new Yaris is expected to cost from 20,000 US dollars.
