The all new sharp-edged styled Toyota Prius. Looks better at the front and has futuristic  lines and angles at the back. This New model engineering has to be admired. Everything has been analysed and improved for greater efficiency. Even those polarising looks are designed to smooth airflow for more mpg and lower CO2.

The engine, gearbox, battery and electric motor have all been revised. And the car sits on a brand, spanking new platform that will underpin a whole host of new Toyota models.

The new model feels more connected to the road than before – not in a hot hatch sort of way, but it doesn’t hop over surfaces like the old one. The ride isn’t perfect, but it’s way better than before. The steering is improved, too; again, don’t expect it to wow you with feedback from the front wheels, but it’s light, direct and secure.

The Prius will pull away silently in electric mode, and go a bit further on battery power than it used to. But when the engine kicks in, you’ll barely notice it. And if you’re listening to the radio, you probably won’t hear it, either. You’ll also be surprised how often this new car switches to driving on battery power.

There’s still a CVT auto box – again further optimised for efficiency – but unless you use the throttle like a switch, you really won’t notice the engine’s revs rise and gently fall.

Even the brakes have a well engineered feel to them. There’s none of the grabbiness many hybrids have as the brakes harvest energy to send back to the battery. The Prius does that, of course, but perhaps because Toyota has been making hybrids for so long, it’s managed to make the brakes work more progressively. So there’s no excuse for cabbies not to do super-smooth stops.

All the controls have been engineered for ease of use and longevity rather than a quality feel, but that adds to the relaxed nature of the car. Of course, there’s the obligatory touchscreen for the multimedia system, plus the traditional centrally mounted high-up display for speed and efficiency data. The new platform means more room in the back and boot, although headroom isn’t too generous and there’s a step when you fold the rear seats.
