TOYOTA Prius+ review

NGC verdict 03.07.2012

For our road conditions the Prius+ is an acquired taste and effort is needed to obtain good fuel figures. With a huge share of the Japanese market, where Toyota sells 25,000 Priuses a month (about 10,000 are the Prius+), and worldwide Prius sales of 2.6 million since 1997, it's rather a surprise it has taken so long for an MPV version.

However, because it's only slightly bigger than the normal car it's best thought of as a more spacious five-seater with a larger boot that has occasional rear kiddy seats when the boot space isn't required. Interior ambience is disappointing considering the car's price. The Prius remains a car that is a 'white goods' item for transport, rather than an enjoyable drive.
