What’s special about it?

imagined the 2010 Toyota with cutting-edge lithium-ion and plug-in capability, and now the real is here at the 2009 Detroit Show. And although the production of the 2010 Toyota Prius radically different from the Prius, it should bring significant upgrades when it on sale in late spring

The most obvious of these is the of a larger-displacement, 1.8-liter inline-4 with variable valve (intake valves only). on the Atkinson cycle, the engine 98 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 105 pound-feet of — a big increase from the 76 hp and 82 lb-ft by the second-generation car’s 1.5-liter The 1.8-liter uses cooled gas recirculation to enhance fuel (reintroducing cooled gas back the intake manifold reduces losses), and an electrically driven pump eliminates the need for a serpentine belt.

Toyota says total power for the 2010 Toyota is 134 hp, meaning that an additional 36 hp is from the car’s nickel-metal battery pack. The 2009 had a battery pack rated for 28 hp.

The transaxle that houses the electric motors and planetary variable transmission is lighter year, and Toyota says reduces torque losses by up to 20 An improved cooling system for the allowed Toyota’s engineers to it smaller and lighter, too.

The of all this is that the 2010 Prius will now hit 60 mph in 9.8 seconds, to Toyota. That’s a half-second than the 2009 Prius and a second quicker than the Honda Insight. The third-generation is also more fuel-efficient, as predicts a 50-mpg combined EPA versus the 2009 model’s combined rating.

By comparison, the 2009 Insight has a combined rating. Power, Eco and EV modes will let 2010 owners prioritize getting to on time or saving the planet by 5 mph under the speed limit.

as significant to us is the all-new chassis the 2010 Toyota Prius. The isn’t any longer, but we suspect the is a bit wider, given that the is 0.8 inch wider across the Toyota says its engineers caster and revised the front bar and bushings to improve straight-line — never a strong point for the car.

Fifteen-inch wheels standard, but the tires are wider — instead of P185/65R15. Optional wheels and P215/45R17 tires are an appearance upgrade rather a dynamic one. Braking be improved with either package, as every 2010 Prius gets four-wheel brakes.

There’s also a new regenerative system, which provides more regeneration than says Toyota.

Toyota has not curb weight, but the company that aluminum is used for the rear hatch, front arms and brake calipers, the rocker panels, center and roof reinforcement are made of steel. Those measures help keep weight in but bear in mind that also more sound to reduce road noise.

a bit more space in the cabin of the Toyota Prius, which is 0.6 longer than its predecessor. A front-seat design provides rear legroom, though has not disclosed how much. Also, a battery pack layout has in a cargo area that’s 2.2 wider and 0.4 inch longer.

As expected, the 2010 Toyota is available with all sorts of gadgets that your systems analyst won’t be to resist. For starters, there’s the Tracer system, which touch sensors on the steering controls to bring up corresponding on the instrument panel and ultimately the amount of time you spend away from the road.

is also promising a simplified of the self-parking system already in the Lexus LS 460 and on European- and Japanese-spec of the second-generation Prius.

There’s an optional moonroof with panels that power a ventilation system. The all-electric maintains a steady cabin while your Prius is in the sun to minimize the use of air-conditioning when you to the car.

Other new options a radar-based dynamic cruise system with an integrated departure warning system, the system from the Lexus and Safety Connect, the new Toyota of OnStar. Dual knee for front-seat passengers are new to the standard list for 2010.

Dismal sales figures led Toyota to take desperate With a 36% drop in December sales Toyota is hoping incentives for customers and dealers help improve sales. reports Toyota is dropping on the popular Camry and Corolla.

It also offer cash on the Prius for the first time.

The savings?

* Toyota Prius: in dealer cash

* Toyota $1,000 in customer rebates and in dealer cash.

* Toyota $1,250 to $1,500 depending on the level.

* …

* Toyota Tundra: customer cash for a 2008. for a 2009.

With the 2010 Prius just around the a report by makes me how cheap the current Prius go.
