Toyota Prius Review

June 25, 2015

It’s Thursday again – and if, like us, you’re already getting excited about the weekend, we’ve got a Toyota Prius review to help you count down the hours. This hot hatch is fighting for its place on the hybrid market and the Toyota Prius – for sale right now from £21,995 – is guaranteed to impress. If you want to get behind the wheel of your own hybrid but don’t have the funds to make the purchase, we offer Toyota Prius finance to suit any budget.

Design

As we become more concerned with the environment, drivers are seeking a greener approach to fuel efficiency and the Toyota Prius hybrid offers just that. The 5 seater hatchback benefits from sleek styling and a practical interior, as well as being kind to the planet (not to mention your pocket). This reliable runner comes with ample space for your essential items, including a large storage box between the front seats, handy cubbies and a two tier glove box. While the electric motor and batteries take up a lot of the Prius’ space, the boot still manages to offer a generous 446 litres of storage space – which extends to 1,120 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.

Performance & Handling

Impressive mpg coupled with rock bottom CO2 emissions are just two of the reasons the Toyota Prius is such a popular car. While it might not be the cheapest hybrid on the market, thanks to its low running costs and high resale value, it gives cars like the Honda Insight a run for their money. The 1.8 litre Hybrid Synergy Drive couples a 98bhp petrol engine with a 36bhp electric motor, delivering 134bhp combined and making it from 0-62mph in 10.2 seconds. If you’re looking for the best fuel economy, opt for the Toyota Prius Plug-In – which boasts CO2 emissions of only 46g/km and returns an impressive 134.5mpg.

Features

When it comes to kit, the basic-spec T3 trim comes with electric windows, air-conditioning and alloy wheels – as well as a head-up display. Moving through the range, the T4 model adds Bluetooth connection, cruise control and keyless entry – while T-Spirit and Plug-In models both include a reversing camera and Sat Nav system.
