The previous-gen Mirai was different just for the sake of being different. From the front, it looked fine, but everything from the B-pillar to the rear was a mess. Toyota's latest fuel cell offering is a significant departure but in a good way. It has a sharp, angular front end, a coupe-like side profile, and a sporty rear end with a subtle spoiler and beautifully integrated taillights. Both models have standard LED exterior lights, including daytime running lights and a satin black front grille. The base XLE has 19-inch alloys, while the top-spec Limited adds 20-inch alloy wheels and a dual fixed panoramic view moonroof.
The second-gen Mirai has grown significantly in dimensions and is now roughly the size of an executive sedan like the BMW 5 Series. It's 195.8 inches long, 74.2 inches wide, and is 57.9 inches in height. The wheelbase is a full 114.9 inches, which is good for interior space. To make the most of the new RWD platform, Toyota also increased the front and rear track to 63.3 and 63.1 inches, respectively. A long wheelbase with a wide track is already a step in the right direction.
On the downside, new Mirai models are a little portlier at 4,255 and 3,335 pounds, respectively.

The Mirai will be built in minimal quantities, so it should be no surprise that Toyota doesn't offer an extensive color palette; it would simply add more complexity to the building process, which is already tough. The only no-cost option for the Toyota Mirai is the basic non-metallic black. For $425, you can add Supersonic Red, Oxygen White, and Heavy Metal. Limited trims can also be ordered in the model-specific Hydro Blue for $425.
