Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Toyota Prius hatchback?

The Hyundai Ioniq is available as a regular hybrid, a plug-in hybrid or a fully electric car. It’s one of our favourite hybrids, being more practical, better equipped, and smarter inside than the Prius. It’s good to drive and its running costs should be minimal.

The BMW i3 looks like nothing else on the roads and it's a premium product, too. Performance is strong; it's got an upmarket interior, a decent electric range (which can be even better if you shop for range-extender variants or a revised example with a bigger battery pack), and a superb infotainment system.

Overview

The Toyota Prius wears its iconic status lightly. It’s good to drive and economical, even if it probably won’t save the world

  • Excellent fuel economy
  • Refinement around town
  • Comfortable ride
  • Not the quickest thing
  • Grabby brakes
  • Poor rear head room
