    The Toyota Prius is involved in 111 crashes for every 10,000 Priuses on the road; Vauxhall is the most accident-prone brand
    The Toyota Prius has been named the UK’s most accident-prone car, being involved in 111 crashes for every 10,000 examples of the model on the road.

    Data from GoCompare shows there were around 71,000 Priuses registered in the UK in 2016, with 787 accidents in the same year involving the model.

    Second place went to the Citroen Saxo, which had an accident rate of 106 out of every 10,000 examples. The BMW 330d was third with 102 out of every 10,000 being involved in a crash.

    Bit odd to report on statistics from 3 years ago, surely they would have 2017, if not 2018 figures by now.

    Surprise for me was the Saxo in 2nd – is there that many Saxo’s out on the road LOL

    When i lived in Portland, nr Weymouth JP, taxi’s were mainly Pirus’s, Astra estate’s, or Insignia’s

    Biggest buyer of Prius are taxi drivers(not in london)

    Citroen Saxo, 106 per 10,000? stopped selling the Saxo in 2004 and only 15,000 left registered on the roads in the uk!

    Yes Mike, one of the best in the south (excluding south-west) spent most of my time on the chesil beach fishing, only when we had visitors would go the sandy bay.
