The hybrid is a vehicle that is simply powered using electric and conventional internal combustion engines.
It comfortable seats five passengers, with unusually good room at the back for the rear passengers.
The ride is comfortable and the driving balanced, however, be careful when driving over potholes as the suspension struggles to hide the thumps.
The Prius comes with a 1.8-litre engine and combined bhp of 134.
The full Hybrid system used for the Prius is the Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive System similar to that used on Lexus Hybrid models and which also ensures the car can drive around town on electric power – therefore saving fuel. This gives the car pain-free acceleration which is remarkably quiet whilst still returning Toyota’s renowned fuel efficiency and low emissions.
