  1. I notice there's now a half-functional new Corolla configurator on the Toyota UK website, but still no full details of specs nor a pukka brochure.
  2. Sorry GC you've lost me, what is the PiP then?Discontinued. PiP production will resume for Europe and Japan, I heard of. Nah.

  4. The irresistible conclusion is that the game is up for the Avensis and this is the last one we'll see. The Prius is Toyota's D segment car now. I'd like to believe you but with Toyota bunging the price up so much, the Prius is just no longer competitive. Might be why they sold less than 3,000 of them last year (including the PIP), the lowest since the gen2 came out in 2004. There are many other cars out there that offer low running costs and/or great fuel economy for much less than a Prius. I was a fan, I sang the praises, but I also no it's time has come and gone. The gen4 (if it ever gets released in the UK) had better be a game changer. Aye, the CT200h Luxury I just ordered is going to cost me less than my Prius, which is just crackers.

  6. My firm's fleet department quote a lead time of 16 weeks on most Toyota and Lexus models, even the ones built here.
  7. It's a very expensive option on the CT200h, and only available on the top of the line Premier variant.
  8. How are you coping without radar cruise? I am dreading giving that up when I come to swap my Prius for a CT-200h.
  9. I will post a comparison when I get it (late August). Things I know I am going to miss from my Prius: reversing camera, radar cruise, the occasionally useful larger boot. Things I won't: the pretty awful navigation (sticking to smartphones from now on), the embarrassingly cheap sound the doors make when closing, the infamously rattly interior. Overall, I have enjoyed the Prius ownership experience, save for the spate of breakdowns the 12V battery issue subjected me to last year. I'd have happily kept it for another year at least if it had been my own rather than a company car.
  10. ...Lexus CT200h. I have to hand the keys to the Prius back in August, and was minded to replace it with an Auris HSD, but the dates don't work for me to order the new one. After much deliberation, I've ordered a CT-200h Luxury instead, which is actually a cheaper car than my fully-spec-ed Prius. The Prius sold me completely on the idea of a hybrid, and I've considered nothing else. But it'll be nice to have one that's better screwed together and doesn't rattle like a tea tray.
  11. I have had a Prius for four years and never used B yet.
  12. Am I the only one who thinks the outgoing model is better looking than the new one?
  13. Hot off the press: dates pulled forward. Build commences in 7 weeks. First cars in showrooms on or before 1 July.
