For The Toyota Prius+ T4 has lots of standard equipment, decent versatility and, above all, exceptionally low CO2 emissions, making it very attractive to business users.

Against There’s no guarantee the promised fuel economy will materialise in the real world, and the car looks dear next to similarly sized MPVs.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Toyota Prius+ is far more than a Prius with a bit more space. Not only does it use a completely different (and more efficient) battery system, Toyota has also tuned the car specifically to take into account its extra size and weight. It has a new set-up for its suspension, a fresh calibration for its electric power steering and overall gearing reduced by 13% to help provide a little more performance.

As for its packaging, perhaps the most instructive comparison is to the Avensis estate. The Prius+ is substantially shorter and narrower, yet – despite packing seven seats instead of five – offers almost as much luggage space when the rearmost seats are folded.

It’s sold with two extremely well equipped trim levels, but even so it looks dear next to similarly sized rivals. However, with CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km (on the cheaper model), it will certainly appeal to company car users.
