Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The interior of the Prius+ is a fairly reserved and grown-up place to be. The materials used feel hard-wearing and there’s no ominous rattling or poorly fitting trim. The strange-looking gear selector is perfectly placed for easy use, while there’s a foot-operated parking brake to keep the car stationary. The seats are comfortable and supportive. You’ll not have to stretch for any of the driving controls, everything you need can be easily reached from the driver’s seat.

Toyota Prius+ comfort levels are surprisingly high. The interior is a refined and relaxed place to be primarily because road and wind noise are nearly completely suppressed thanks to excellent aerodynamic properties. The seats are comfortable; the ride is cossetting and the powertrain smooth in operation.
