Aimed at mainstream buyers with open minds, the Prius mixes conventional and radical styling to create a truly unique driving experience.
Snows Toyota pride ourselves in saving tonnes of CO2 emissions with every Prius model sold. To prove it, the new Prius is an award-winning vehicle voted Auto Express' 'Green Car of the year' in 2016.
The Prius is a sporty looking five-door hatchback with a surprising amount of space inside the cabin. The rear of the vehicle features vast tail-lights with vertical, clear-lenses, fashionable chrome fins and detailing inside. A separate, sleek rear window sits under the rear spoiler – a clear nod to Toyota's early design aesthetic. Great for both business users, active drivers or even as a family car. The sleek and attractive 17" Silver Alloy Wheels with 5 spokes makes going out for a spin even more appealing.
With state of the art technology introduced into the new and improved safety features, you can always rely on a secure journey in your new Toyota Prius. Sensors built around the car support the Pre Collision System with Pedestrian Detection system. Always on the look out with Blind Spot Monitoring so you, and your Prius, are fully aware of the surroundings. Advanced features like Lane Departure Alert with Steer Control will keep your positioning in tact and the Adaptive Cruise Control will measure your speed depending on the traffic in front. With no worries you can really relax and enjoy the ride.
The Prius also comes with a range of advanced technologies. For example, the head-up display allows key information such as sat nav instructions and current speed to be projected onto the base of the windscreen – meaning you can always keep your eyes on the road. The Prius also comes packaged with a rear camera that works in conjunction with Toyota Parking Assist to result in perfect maneuvers every time.
Entertainment on any adventure, rear passengers can immerse themselves in the DVD Player system installed in the front seats that also include added features like infrared headphones and an iPad holder for convenience. You can also get lost in the sound with the JBL premium sound speaker system. Convenience is key with the installation of automatic headlights, wipers, fold-able door mirrors and a smart Entry & Push button start.
The Prius is unique because it is powered by a 1.8 litre hybrid e-CVT double engine – one petrol, one electric. Both operate in harmony to re-use energy which is normally lost when the car slows down or brakes. This means that fuel economy remains great in all traffic conditions. The hybrid system also means that emissions are kept as low as possible, at just 70g/km.
This means that the Prius is exempt from the London Congestion Charge. Furthermore, if driven in electric mode, the Prius produces virtually no emissions at all. The Prius is a conventional automatic, making for a highly relaxing and rewarding sensation as you drive.The hybrid system also ensures that fuel consumption is kept to the absolute minimum; noise, gear changes, the wasted energy of stopping and starting in traffic – all are irrelevant with the Prius, which offers a truly unique driving experience with no sacrifice in performance.
