Monday, 03 August 2009

Savvy drivers who make sure they always secure the cheapest online car insurance may find a new addition to Toyota's line-up can help them make savings in other areas as well.

Capable of 72.4 mpg, the latest version of the Prius might help motorists reduce the amount they spend at the pump.

The manufacturer pointed out the vehicle's fuel economy is the best offered by any production petrol engine in the world.

It also represents a ten per cent improvement on the capabilities of the model's predecessor.

As well as possibly being able to save money at the pump, owners of the auto will also be exempt from paying road tax as the vehicle boasts CO2 emissions of 89 g/km.

In addition, company car drivers opting for the model will find they qualify for the lowest benefit-in-kind statutory charge rate.

Meanwhile, all vehicle owners keen to cut costs may find they can make significant savings by searching online for budget motor insurance.
