The Japanese based automaker Toyota has launched the new Prius C in Australia, where the model has been priced at AUD23,990.

After the car manufacturer has introduced the new Toyota Prius C, or Aqua as it is also being known, on several markets until now, including the United States or Malaysia, time has come for the model to be launched in Australia too, where it just became the cheapest hybrid, even if its starting price is “different” than the one in the United States of America (18,950 USD). Toyota says that the entry-level Prius C is coming with features like the Bluetooth, USB, iPod connectivity, rear view camera, CD player, 3.5 inch display, cruise control, fog lights, keyless entry and engine start and 15-inch alloy wheels.

The upper grade, Prius C i-Tech, is adding, besides the features mentioned above, stuff like the LED headlights, satellite navigation system, rear spoiler, electrically retractable side mirrors and 15-inch alloy wheels. The Toyota Prius C is being offered with a single powertrain, made out of the 1.5 liter four-cylinder engine(74 HP) and an electric motor (45 kW), which are developing a total output of 100 horsepower, sent to the front wheels with the help of a standard CT transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph)acceleration takes 10,7 seconds.
