Why the 2009 Toyota Prius?

Fuel economy

Using less fossil fuel with this Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle makes it the cleanest vehicle available in South Africa.

Safety & braking

The Prius has a 5 star EURO NCAP rating since 2004 and all the advanced vehicle stability features like Vehicle Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Skid control, Brake assist and Electronically Controlled Brake are standard.

Reliability & durability

The car did not give any problems and still looks and performs like new.

Warranty, maintenance cost

There is no other car that comes with a 8 year service plan and 6 year manufacturer warranty.

Powertrain performance

Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 10 seconds and no gear changes with the Continuously-Variable Transmission up to 180 km/h is pure bliss.

Why Not the 2009 Toyota Prius?

Cargo capacity

The Prius is not to be used for towing as recommended by Toyota.
