Which used Toyota Prius hatchback should I buy?
Although the on-paper economy of the plug-in Prius is deeply impressive, as mentioned before, you’re unlikely to come anywhere near those figures in real-world motoring – unless it fits into your lifestyle exactly, your journeys are short and you have a charging point at each end of it. On top of that, the plug-in model doesn’t drive as well as the regular car and costs a lot more – even used. For those reasons, we’d seek out the standard Prius. Meanwhile, we think Active trim is the best, taking into account possible purchase costs.
