The Toyota Mirai fuel-cell car may be the freshest model at Toyota’s booth at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show, but the automaker paid some attention to its other eco-friendly offerings. Specifically, it’s the 2015 Toyota Prius C and Prius V that now feature slight styling tweaks and new tech.

The 2015 Prius V, for example, gets revised front and rear styling with redesigned headlights that feature a new lighting accent on the upper edge of the housing. An all-LED headlight system is available. Inside, an eight-way power driver’s seat is now optional, as is a bigger 4.2-inch touchscreen. For model-year 2015, the Advanced Technology Package has been upgraded to include lane departure warning and automatic high beams on top of forward-collision assist and adaptive cruise control. 2015 Toyota Prius V© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Toyota Prius V

No changes were made to the Prius V’s hybrid powertrain, which returns an EPA-estimated 44/40 mpg city/highway rating.

Meanwhile, the 2015 Prius C also gets styling tweaks. The front grille is larger, while the headlight units are sharper and now house the new standard LED low- and high-beam lamps. Toyota says the hatchback should be quieter, while three new colors have been added to the paint palette: Electric Lime Metallic, Tangerine Splash Pearl, and Sparkling Sea Metallic. The interior has also been revised, with better materials throughout. 2015 Toyota Prius C© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Toyota Prius C

Like the Prius V, no changes were made to the Prius C’s powertrain. The automaker says it should return an EPA-estimated 53/46 mpg city/highway.
