The Toyota Prius hybrid has turned street-sharp with front, rear and side skirts, 17 inch smoked-finish alloys and dark-tinted privacy glass. The new look belongs to a special edition model that celebrates the hybrid’s first 10 years in the UK.
The new Prius 10th Anniversary is still every bit as fuel-frugal and tax-friendly as its more sober-suited stable mates, with 70.6mpg combined cycle consumption and 92g/km CO2 emissions.
Prius’s birthday makeover extends to the car’s interior, too, with high-quality black leather upholstery, embossed with the 10th anniversary logo.
In other respects, Prius 10th Anniversary shares the same equipment specification as the top-of-the-range T Spirit model, so comes equipped with HDD satellite navigation (with integrated sound library), rear parking monitor, Bluetooth, Intelligent Park Assist, cruise control, smart entry and start, rain-sensing wipers and head-up display.
Only 1,000 examples will be built, making this the most exclusive production Prius yet. White Pearl or Astral Black exterior paint finishes are available, and the on-the-road price is £26,150, Orders are being taken now, with first deliveries to customers over the winter.
