"It's just a normal car, a lot of people don't understand this - it just puts out much less carbon than any other car. It's just so easy to live with, and at the end of the day I just love it."
2nd generation Prius owner
"I'm currently driving my 3rd Prius. I guess some people might describe me as a "Greenie". But that's not the only reason I drive a Prius. I love its gadgets. I can no longer live without smart entry and start. Or Sat Nav , Bluetooth , a Reversing Camera or climate control air conditioning. I love the fact that in my current Prius I can turn on the air conditioning before I get to my car (and put my son in). Most of all, I love that even though it drives like a normal car (once you get over the fact that the engine stops when you stop at the lights) I only have to visit the petrol station once every three weeks. And that's not normal. But it is cool."
"I currently drive a Hybrid Camry after many years of driving an Aurion. With great petrol savings resulting in a little extra cash in the wallet, comfort and no loss of get up and go, I am one proud and very happy Hybrid driver."
"I first got to drive a Prius when I selected it as my company car. I was an account manager so spent a bit of time on the road. I loved the fact it was a good mid size car and ultra quiet. But what I did love most was the fuel efficiency and obviously the associated environmental benefits. I only filled up every couple of weeks which was great. The Prius is easy to drive and park and had a really comfy interior so a pleasure to drive."
