One of the more peculiar happenings at the 2016 New York Auto Show wasn't the debut of milquetoast Subaru Impreza. It was actually the debut of an all-new Toyota Prius.

Called the Prius Prime, it's just a plug-in hybrid version of the standard Prius.

So, what's all the fuss about, right? Well, there's a lot, actually. That's because Toyota decided to really differentiate the Prius Prime from the standard car. It did so the best way it knows how. Through design.

Not only did the Prius Prime get all-new sheetmetal that makes for an all-new front facade and all-new ass end, it also received a revised interior. That's where the huge infotainment screen resides.

This begs the question: Does the Prius Prime COMPLETELY IMPROVE upon the standard Prius from a design perspective? Or, are you NOT impressed with the Prime's updated look?

What say you, Spies?
