The world's favourite hybrid
With the space and refinement of a large family car and the fuel economy of a supermini, there's no car quite like the Toyota Prius. It's all down to the award-winning Hybrid Synergy Drive® system.
Two engines – one petrol, one electric – work in perfect harmony to recycle the energy normally lost when you slow down or brake, giving you great fuel economy in all traffic conditions. The hybrid system means ultra-low carbon emissions, too – and if you drive in electric mode, you'll produce virtually no emissions at all. With Toyota's pioneering hybrid technology, two engines are better than one.
Prius is a conventional automatic, the transmission makes driving relaxing and rewarding. Just like a diesel, the hybrid system delivers low fuel consumption. But with the Prius, the experience is better than either a conventional automatic or a diesel: it's smooth, almost silent and delivers outstanding fuel economy – and with no sacrifice in performance.
Lead from the front
There's much more to the Prius than fuel economy and refinement, though. Inside, you'll find a range of advanced technologies that make driving utterly satisfying and trouble-free.
For example, the head-up display projects key information such as sat nav instructions and your current speed onto the base of the windscreen, so you can keep your eyes on the road. There’s also a rear camera for safer reversing and touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel.
Best of all, the Prius now features the new Toyota Touch multimedia system as standard. Upgrade to Touch & Go Plus (standard on the Prius T Spirit) and there’s Google Local Search®, as well as a smart sat nav with the latest traffic info.
The best driving experience
Noise, gear changes, the wasted energy of stopping and starting in traffic. They're aspects of driving that we've become so accustomed to that we barely notice them any more.
But drive the Prius for a few miles and things seem very different. It's smooth – incredibly so. And quiet. Quieter than you could think possible. Best of all, it saves the energy wasted when you stop for traffic to give you greater fuel economy later on. And yet it still has the full power and performance of a conventional family car.
But enough talk. The only way to experience it for yourself is to take a test drive... are you curious?Book a test drive in the Prius
You can rely on me
With more than 3 million sales across the globe, and 15 years of expertise the Prius has won award after award, and saved tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere.
What's more, as a Toyota, it's covered by our 5 year warranty as standard, and the hybrid battery itself is guaranteed for eight years.
Peace of mind is built into every part of this car… because we wouldn't have it any other way.
