Save money with low fuel emissions cars

Looking for a little economy from your car's miles per gallon, but also don't mind doing your bit for Mother Nature? Ladies and Gentleman, let me introduce you to the car that is slowly saving the earth - the Toyota Prius.

The Toyota Prius was the original hybrid car. A hybrid uses both conventional petrol and electric power to power the engine, resulting in lower fuel consumption, lower emissions, and perhaps best, lower costs at the fuel pump.

The engine on the Prius is whisper quiet thanks the the ultra efficient hybrid engine. It's now on its fourth generation of vehicle, testament to the ever increasing demand from savvy consumers who are looking for a bargain. It's literally the perfect family car, bringing with it the legendary Toyota reliability.

All models come with a 98bhp 1.8-litre petrol engine backed up by an ultra efficient electric motor. Across the range, you'll also get a warranty that covers the car for an impressive five years/100,000 miles.

There are some minor criticisms of the Prius though. The interior plastic is a little drab, and feels cheap considering the car will be setting you back £20,000 pounds. Rear visibility can also be an issue for smaller drivers. £20,000 is what you'll pay for the base model, with more expensive options including alloy wheels available.

However, we feel the positives far outweigh the negatives when it comes to the Prius, so it's well worth checking out today, do your bit for the environment!
