Hi all ex Prius and Auris (current) Hybrid owner here. Ordered 1.2 Dynamic today in Metal Stream with Black roof.
First manual and non-hybrid since 2004!!
We were fed up with the Hybrids being totally useless when it snows!

Take delivery in about ten days, exciting times.

Cheers
Jim and Lyn

Thank you painted lady!
Karmalakas, the Prius we've had (Gen2 and 3), and both Auris Hybrids have refused to provide drive up the hill where I live in snowy, slippery conditions. Rather than even wheelspin the drive was not even provided to the drive wheels leaving me stranded. Hence useless.

Had snow down here this year, at least 5 inches and mine was stable and great driving in it, what was your issue?

Our town is built on hills. Very badly maintained, never gritted hills. Our road is a hill downwards where it emerges halfway down a hill (or halfway up.) It then turns into an uphill road. None of these are gritted. They are full of potholes. There is no traction to be had in any direction, we have been trying for 14 years to get them gritted and enough is enough.
