In third generation guise, Toyota's Prius finally made real world sense. As a used proposition, it's a car you can justify buying, even if you're not trying to make some kind of environmental statement. True, it isn't cheap but it's decent value for what you get, especially if you compare prices to high-efficiency diesel rivals with technology that by comparison, dates back to the Ark.
With reasonable driving dynamics, a roomy cabin and user-friendly design, this third generation model deals with all the drawbacks which used to be part and parcel of Prius ownership, creating a car that's increasingly difficult to ignore in the gloomy times we live in. Toyota's hybrid revolution continues to gather pace.
