Toyota Prius+ MPV 1.8 VVT-i Review
Toyota Prius+ MPV 1.8 VVT-i Review. The Prius + uses the same essence as the Prius engine, but it has a Lithium-ion battery which is more effective. Adequate on paper, but poor performance during shipping - you will find reaching for the button of power mode that sharpens the throttle response, but kill the fuel economy. The car is the best in the mode of the EV around the city where this could lead to approximately one mile in near silence, but the gasoline engine must work very hard to produce something more than a simple measure of the speed at other locations.
Ride & Handling
The Prius + copes well with life in the city, thanks to a slight steering and manoeuvring easy and it only consists in the open road, with surprisingly little roll and safe handling, right. The suspension uses a new system to modulate the throttle when the car hits a bump or swim to help keep the same ground clearance, but the trip could be better: it has a taste too strong when cars meet the uneven surfaces
As long as you are not a car that works too hard, it usually is a luxurious place: wind and road noise are effectively isolated. However, when you ask for something more than the simple acceleration, CVT transmission - which allows machine down on a constant and high towers when choosing a speed-make sure that the Prius + is not quiet cars to drive; and when you reach the toll of constant cruising speed, there is too much wind noise
The Prius + is a very expensive in its category option, even though this will be offset by tax reductions and exemptions granted by a bit of CO2. The driver of the automakers in particular will appreciate, because that no matter what minivan with emissions at the level of the diesel engine and therefore will be subject to a surcharge of 3% on the responsibility of BIK.

Quality & reliability
If this section covered only quality, we will fall another star. Dashboard can be sustainable, but with a large gray plastic and sometimes cheaper - looking for more details, it is just not quite chic in a car that costs so much. On the other hand, it is a Toyota, then we have no reason to doubt the integrity of the construction or long-term reliability.

He certainly has a good base to work, because the hatchback Prius has achieved a five-star note of Euro NCAP crash test. There are many security and safety kit, too.
Behind the wheel
The Interior of the Toyota Prius + is not Citroen C4 grand Picasso, but it's close. It has an excellent position of driving, with great visibility, and a careful control is positioned and label. Boring Infotainment touch ™, however, because the menu complex and icons tiny and difficult to hit a peek.
Space & practicality
Two roof can sit happily in the front center of line and would take three at selesa. Each of the three seats it slides, tilt and folds individually, too. Most of the seven-seat minivans offer more space for passengers in the rear seats, however, and then the boot is a decent size and the wheelarches intrude, limiting the width of
There are only two versions of the Prius +, but both have the right equipment high level given the price of the car. T4 'basics' alloy wheels, panoramic roof glass, Bluetooth, touch screen multimedia system, reverse camera and a head-up display; and, if you pay extra a few thousand T spirit, add you seats in leather, sat - nav and stereo upgrades.
