Prius SUV vs Mazda CX-3?

In the future we could possibly see a Prius SUV come to market!

Quote:


Through its joint collaboration with Mazda, Toyota is reportedly developing a Prius SUV model, which will likely be a production version of the C-HR concept shown at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

The two automakers have agreed to exchange powertrain technologies that will power all-new models. This now reportedly includes a new compact crossover for Toyota and Mazdaís first EV. It is being reported that Toyota is eyeing Mazdaís 1.5-liter SkyActiv diesel engine for its hybrid models, potentially powering the Prius SUV with a diesel-hybrid powertrain that will offer plenty of torque and great fuel economy.

There is also a possibility that Toyota could implement just the diesel engine into the new crossover model without the electric powertrain, as well as the rest of its lineup to help gain an edge in the European market. Mazda has already confirmed that it will use its relationship with Toyota to manufacture its first electric vehicle in order to meet strict Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) regulations in the state of California.

Considering the growth of the crossover and SUV segment and how Toyota has expanded its Prius lineup with the compact Prius c and the larger Prius v, a Prius SUV isnít entirely out of the question and would help solidify the family as a contender in numerous segments.

I'll stick to what's currently available in the market, thanks. If I wait for another vehicle, there's bound to be yet another superior vehicle in the pipeline. Cars are always becoming more efficient.

The Prius looks nothing like that concept. I could see that concept becoming an SUV EV but I don't think they should call it a Prius unless the styling gets closer to the regular Prius. It just wouldn't make sense otherwise.
