2014 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid Gets Facelift–In Japan

Often cars are updated first in their home market; here’s a good example.

The 2014 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid is getting a few upgrades, but–so far–only in Japan.

The biggest visual difference between the facelifted model and previous Prius Plug-Ins is the new two-tone paint scheme.

Two-tone treatments were popular on tail-finned 1950s American cars, and it had a resurgence in the 1980s; Toyota apparently thinks the time is ripe for the style to return on its only plug-in hybrid.

Other exterior visual changes include new aluminum alloy wheels and both “PHV” and “Hybrid Synergy Drive” badges illuminated by LEDs.

On the inside, Toyota has added a padded compartment in the center console for storing a smartphone, and some dark wood-grain inserts to give the interior a more luxurious feel.
