The all new car does 72.4 MPG, a record for a petrol engine, and up to 714 miles on a full tank. It is also exempt from the London Congestion Charge, exempt from VED ( road tax ) and is in the lowest rate of company car tax at just 10%. It even qualifies for a 100% write down allowance for company purchasers. So if your company is making a profit you can offset a lot of corporation tax and make the car much cheaper to buy.
Not only that, but it is a roomy, spacious family car that is comfortable and practical. Toyota have legendary reliability, and the Prius is no exception. The car came first in the JD Power reliability surveys for both 2007 and 2008, and sports a 5 year ‘hybrid’ warranty.
According to the manufacturer website, the car costs up to £4400 less to run than an equivalent Ford Mondeo as a company car over 3 years, and £45 more than its rival, the Honda Insight IMA SE.
Toyota retailers now have all models available for sale, and our opinion is that with the class leading warranty and reliability, good looks plus fantastic value driving, the Prius is a tough one to beat.
