Toyota Prius (NHW20). 2004–11 (prod. over 750,000). 5-door sedan. F/F, 1497 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Toyota refines the Prius concept further with second-generation model, with hybrid electric–petrol engine working in unison when extra power needed. Far more popular than its predecessor and boosted by Hollywood celebrities’ endorsements; officially sold in more countries worldwide and even adopted as taxicabs in many. Unconventional one-box styling (Cd of 0,26) marked it out more than its chief rival, the Honda Civic IMA Hybrid, as a “personal statement” vehicle.
