I can see them eventually putting more higher end Toyota and Lexus DNA into the design, such as more spindle grille cues.
Sort of like what the Camry has going on (which I really like)
That's my biggest gripe with the new prius and hydrogen car... besides being but ugly, they barely share anything in common with Toyota's family face, which lets face it is better than it's been in a long time. The Avalon is a pretty good looking car. The camry isn't horrible. The corolla still needs some work. But they just threw all that out the window designing the new prius.
That always used to be one of my personal issues with Chevy's designs, nothing shared a family face! Every car looked different. They've finally fixed that issue now with the release of the new Impala/Cruze/Malibu which all finally share a similar design language.
