No one would ever label the Toyota Prius as “sporty”, but Toyota is attempting to add some “sport” into the Prius with the introduction of the PLUS Performance Package. The Prius PLUS Performance Package features components of the new PLUS hybrid performance line from Toyota Racing Development (TRD).
The PLUS Performance Package will only be available in limited numbers and buyers get to choose between Blizzard Pearl, Classic Silver Metallic, Black and Winter Gray Metallic exterior colors. The package comes with a seven-piece aerodynamic ground effects kit that also includes front and rear bumper spoilers, sleek side skirts and a uniquely styled rear diffuser. 17-inch forged alloy wheels are mated to low profile 215/45R17 tires attempt to make the Prius look sportier and track-tuned lowering springs lower the vehicle 1.1 inches in the front and 1.3 inches in the rear. A rear sway bar has also been added.
The PLUS Perfomance Package adds 3,699 to the price of the Prius Two, Three, and Four models and $2,999 to the Prius Five.
