2009 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Toyota Prius

The name Prius has become a byword for planet-friendly motoring since its debut 12 years ago but for all its merits and ideals, the car has had its critics.

Many of them should be silenced when this third generation of the world’s most famous hybrid power car reaches British showrooms this summer.

Toyota promise improved fuel economy, performance and emissions from the larger 1.8-litre petrol-powered engine, as well as sharper styling and greater comfort.

Like its predecessors the new Prius can run on its engine or electric motor, or on a combination of the two.

MM verdict: like the ads said, the car in front is a Toyota.
