TOYOTA Prius review

NGC verdict 12.02.2016

Toyota's new, more stylish, fourth generation Prius re-establishes itself as the flagship of Toyota's hybrid range. It delivers an improved hybrid performance with fewer compromises that make it more like a conventional car to drive. From a technical point of view there's a lot to appreciate and around town it feels great knowing you aren't pumping dangerous fumes out of the exhaust much of the time. Taxi drivers are convinced of their reliability too. Toyota won't talk about future models but a Prius+ and Prius plug-in must be on the way.
