The future is here! We have been informed that Toyota is preparing the second generation of its hydrogen fuel cell cars which will be less expensive and totally eco-friendly. The new 2019 Toyota Mirai, where Mirai stands for ‘future’ in Japanese, is primarily being planned for the 2020 opening ceremony at the Olympics in Tokyo, but it will also appear in the market.

The new 2019 Toyota Mirai will perhaps not have a classy and elegant design, but it will certainly be unique and interesting. It will be smaller than its predecessor with its top fascia standing a bit ahead. It will have aerodynamic styling which will additionally benefit its performance and efficiency. In the front fascia, this sedan will get the LED headlights with high-beam features. The wide angle fog lamps can also be noticed and it will be standing on 17-inch alloy wheels. In the back, this model will get triangular taillights. It will also be equipped with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. The current model is available in salsa red pearl, atmospheric blue metallic, nautical blue metallic, crystal white, elemental silver and celestial black, so we think that the same paint colors will be offered for the 2019 model as well. The entire vehicle appears sharp and edgy, with no curves and round features.

Interior

Inside the 2019 Toyota Mirai, you will find the modern and well-equipped cabin. It will provide a heated telescoping steering wheel with multifunction controls and heated leather seats in the front that will be adjustable in at least eight ways. Also, the front part of the vehicle will get an acoustic noise-reducing glass for the windshield. The interior will probably be available in two-tone colors – deep ocean blue and warm white. It will be comfortable and spacious enough to accommodate five passengers. The latest hi-tech features will not be left out either. You will get the Entune infotainment system and App Suite as well as the options such as premium audio system and JBL, climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi and numerous safety and driver assist options. Some of them include eight airbags, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert, pre-collision system and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
