Toyota Prius 1.8 HSD Lounge

The Prius + is the version of family best selling hybrid increased both in length and but also has 7 seats and a luggage which if necessary can accommodate liters of cargo. To create the hybrid families Toyota have developed with lithium batteries that 34 kg and steal just a little between the two front seats. All the is dedicated to the load and the habitability for 5 expandable to 6 or 7 passengers in case of Curiosity about this type of wagon electrified led us to try out the and equipped, the Toyota Prius + 1.8 HSD which has a list price of euro basis. It was a test a ‘longer than average, engaged for almost 2,500 km, but to understand the spirit of this really need to drive it.


It is often said the first impression is what in the case of the Prius + it is probably more true. We must say it is difficult to fall in love edgy design of the Toyota and a first look tends to indifferent fans of nice but this is not its main purpose. Its is indeed in other eyes, of those seeking spacious car for the ecological and low power consumption. In the hybrid style is modern with the front and gritty that echoes the design of the new and Auris. The complex headlights LED daytime running lights and vertical taillights go along blued details typical of hybrid and contribute to a good design is complete, in the case of the car, the rims 17 ten-spoke. the rear looks a bit ‘unbalanced and out of the design language, but overall the elongated hatchback are original.


The is also evident in the original, for the less accustomed to the hybrid can be almost futuristic. In the face of the panel to the raised center of the and a lever of the automatic transmission can bring a smile to their and color blue, but there is the quality of the materials that we used the Japanese. The Toyota 1.8 HSD + Lounge is in fact equipped various plastic finish and who tend to do more of their to satisfy the senses of the passengers. panels, dashboard, seats and sky are made and sturdy, but those for frills elegant finishes or here is confused. Space on is wide and the height for the head abundant, and to give further passenger thinks twice roof made of plastic. The has at its disposal a steering wheel unconvincing and a series of more 50 buttons that can be confusing. Too bad the driving position is well and comfortable, although the seats a bit ‘hard. The seats are uncomfortable and but those reserved for the occupants of the row, they have seats also widely backrest inclination,

but thin and slightly padded. The compartment accessible from the hatch is large and well in setting up 5 places, but if you are traveling in 7 is to a small room where to put and handbags.

The futuristic aspect of the however, is just a taste of very special way of driving requires the Prius +. Only who go to Toyota or Lexus hybrid can understand what it means to to the style of driving a car instead of their own way of doing. The structure is balanced and secure the steering is braking is powerful, but it all comes to the in a filtered, remote-controlled, as you were in of a ship rather than the wheel of a car. The driving of the Prius +, just like the sister, delete any ambition and sends a feedback really what is the state of the asphalt, the speed or the triggering of an almost roll. Traveling the Toyota + 1.8 HSD Lounge appears almost with a soft structure by a steering equally soft, but little feeling and well from any idea of #8203;#8203;sportsmanship. It is distance from any emotion may be for some the most difficult hurdle to overcome, but for those calm and pace risparmiosa is to find better. As for energy the Toyota Prius HSD + 1.8 Lounge is a first class, making the lack of emotion with satisfaction at the gas pump. In the course of our test on a mixed route, the + has scored an average consumption of 4.8 km in Eco mode, very good the 7 seats available and the tonnage of the car exceeds 1,500 kg. Applicandoci in driving style economy run in locations than a hundred we got a minimum consumption of 3.6 l/100 km, driving with no particular about traffic is difficult to more

than 6.0 l/100 km. Always the distance in purely electric EV, rarely more than 1 km. therefore, the Toyota Prius + 1.8 HSD we tested is a perfect family spacious and comfortable, with fuel efficiency as a diesel, but not for drivers who love the most sports driving. You can tell in the ascents or as soon as you try to beat on the accelerator when the car seems to and point out with a sound that this is not the right way to it.

34,100 EURO, full

The Toyota Prius 1.8 HSD Lounge has a based on 32,200 euro, automatic climate control (not dual-zone), four windows, automatic, dual cruise control, automatic 7 seats, reversing camera, monochrome display and multimedia Toyota Touch screen 6.1 , USB and Aux and steering wheel controls. The car we was more Silver metallic (500 €), alloy wheels 17 tires 215/50 R17 which another 450 euro and a navigation integrated into the central Box Plus (950 euro). The has thus risen to 34,100 which is not low at all, but still for a hybrid for large loads. a quick comparison with the rivals on the market, which is the diesel + electric (Peugeot 508 and Citroen DS5 HYbrid4), to understand the figure of 34,100 euro is not out of world and the technology of this looking to the future you pay for.
