Hyundai Prius is about to have some serious competiton. And since talk is no fun recently spy pictures of the car that promises to steal some of the market that Hyundai Prius has carefully earned have made their way on the internet. Actually the special model has been caught testing in Northern Europe.
As far as aspect goes we must first state that the car was heavily camoufaged. This is however no reason for worries as plenty of information regarding it are available. Impress arsenal is quite large for the model and counts a serious list.
A sloping roof, a new rear end, sweptback headlights, boomerang-shaped daytime running lights and an upward sweeping beltline are all present to give the much awaited for car a special flavour.
If satisfied with the exterior of the car then we can move inside where things look just as good. Under the hood of the new Hyundai will be present a hybridized 1.6-liter petrol engine, an electric motor and a small lithium-ion battery.
As far as size goes nothing is yet official, but most likely the car will run on the same platform as the next-generation Elantra. And if things go good and sales rocket a plug-in hybrid variant is also expected.
