Toyota has led the way in bringing hybrid technology and increased efficiency to UK vehicles. The manufacturer’s hybrid range now includes six vehicles, bringing you more variety as well as the economy and low-emissions running you expect.
There are plenty of advantages to owning a Toyota hybrid. The manufacturer’s Hybrid Synergy Drive technology makes driving simpler and more enjoyable. The battery in each car recharges automatically without needing to keep the vehicle plugged in overnight. Toyota has optimised every model for smooth, quiet handling, without compromises on trademark safety and advanced in-car infotainment systems. The integrated Stop & Start system also cuts power at a standstill, reducing energy usage even further.
The Yaris Hybrid brings clever engineering to urban motoring. It’s a hatchback that feels confident and ready for adventure, kitted out with LED daytime running lights, front fog lights, dusk-sensing headlights and rain-sensing wipers.
Alongside the Yaris, the Auris Hybrid is sleek and sporty with plenty of intelligence. It feels dynamic on the outside and practical on the inside, perfect for families and frequent drivers. The Auris is one of Toyota’s most advanced cars when it comes to infotainment, keeping everyone happy and relaxed on the move.
A more athletic version can be found in the form of the Auris Touring Sports. Classed as a compact estate car, it’s topped with subtly built-in roof bars and claims a deceptively cavernous load space. This can be increased to as much as 1,658 litres by smoothly folding down the rear seats.
The original hybrid is the Prius, and it’s still part of the new Toyota range. The iconic car is a mid-sized hatchback with plenty of enthusiasm. Smart entry and keyless start get you on the road in no time. For very short journeys of less than two miles, the Prius runs solely on electric power at speeds of up to 50mph.
With the Prius Plug-In Hybrid, if you need to top up the energy at a power point it’s always quick and simple. It builds on the appeal and versatility of the original hybrid with an added electric recharging port, discreetly tucked away under the fuel cap.
Drivers who want to balance efficient running with people carrier capability can choose the 7-Seat Prius+ Hybrid. The power system works hard to transport families and crews without a huge impact on energy consumption. As a larger car, the MPV is also packed with convenient features such as cruise control and the Toyota Touch 2 infotainment system.
