Pricing and trim levels for the new 2015 Toyota Prius+ have now been released by Toyota UK, which will be made available in the UK in January. Prices start from £26,995 for this new seven-seater hybrid that looks remarkably like other models from the range up front.
2015 Toyota Prius+ price list with three trim levels – The first trim is the Icon with an OTR starting price of £26,995. Next is the Excel with its starting price set for £29,245. The top-of-the range model is the Excel Plus that has an on-the-road price of £31.245.
All three make use of the same 1.8-liter engine and electric motor that is no different to previous models, which to us seem a bit lazy considering there have been enhancements with this technology. All Toyota has done has made a few tweaks in order for the powertrain to comply with new Euro 6 emission regulations.
Fuel-figures – The new Prius+ for 2015 should be able to achieve an average of 68.9 mpg with 16-inch wheels, although this drops to 64.2 miles per gallon when the 17-inch wheels are fitted to the higher-range models, which is something to take into consideration.
The entry-level model, the Icon, does come with a decent array of features, such as Bluetooth, keyless entry, 16-inch alloys, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control and much more. The Excel adds those larger wheels, park assist, and pre-crash safety system, with the top-of-the range coming with leather seats, and twin DVD players with separate displays for passengers sitting in the rear.
More details can be seen on the Toyota Blog, along with a lost of the optional extras above.
