Last week we argued that the Toyota Prius C was channeling the Ford Fiesta ST with it’s refreshed, over-sized grill. If looking like another car brand isn’t bad enough Toyota decided to give the Prius V a refreshed bumper that looks like a bulldog. It makes more sense to make a small hatchback like the Prius C appear sportier, but to make a hybrid, van-like people mover appear uncharacteristically aggressive seems unnecessary. The new grill shares similarities with the new Toyota Camry, which is surprising since the Prius family is suppose to differentiate itself from the rest of Toyota. Regardless, the only important question is, will people buy a bulldog-looking hybrid family car?

The refreshed 2016 Toyota Prius V was shown at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Other than the new grill nothing major was changed about the largest member of the Prius family.
