The Toyota Prius Plug-in is too expensive by half. It works well as a short-range, pseudo-electric vehicle, but not well enough elsewhere

Trim:

Active

Most owners will be satisfied with the generous level of equipment that comes on the cheapest trim level. The kit list includes 15in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control and 7.0in touchscreen with reversing camera, DAB radio and Bluetooth. There is also a host of driving and safety functions such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with brake assist, road sign recognition, lane departure alert and auto high-beam headlights.,

Engine:

1.8 VVTi

The sole drivetrain choice is a 1.8-litre petrol engine that works in union with an electric motor to make a modest combined output of 120bhp. It's possible to drive at up to 36mph using electric power alone, but most of the time the engine is in action, too. The automatic gearbox is a CVT unit that sends revs soaring when you accelerate hard, but it's much quieter than some other Toyota hybrids.
