The next Toyota Prius is smoother and quieter, cleaner and more fuel efficient. It is a solid practical family car that looks as good as it feels to drive.

With £2000 scrappage savings you can enjoy space, dynamism and power when you buy the third generation Hybrid Synergy Drive Toyota Prius for just £17,504. The offer is available until the end of February or until the government funding runs out.

The Hybrid Synergy Drive was comprehensively re-engineered for inclusion in the latest Toyota Prius. Where once there was a 1.5-litre 77bhp petrol engine whirring away behind the scenes, there’s now a 98bhp 1.8-litre. The Toyota Prius is a parallel hybrid which means that it’s able to run purely on its batteries for a limited period. Other measures to boost economy include the headlights using LEDS when on dipped beam to save power, the air-conditioning system is the first on any car to run exclusively on electric power independently of the engine, the water pump is also electric and exhaust gases are recirculated to help the engine reach optimum operating temperatures more quickly. Buyers can even specify their Toyota Prius with a roof covered in solar panels which recharge the nickel-metal hydride batteries while the car is parked.
