How Green are you?
Can you break free from your habits & Win a week in the new 2012 Toyota Prius?
Welcome to the 2012 Toyota Prius Challenge. A challenge where we ask you a simple question, how fuel efficient a driver are you? We will put you in the car, guide you around our course, and pit your eco score against those of other test drivers.
The all new 2012 Toyota Prius C offers the whole package - not only is it part of the the greenest car family there is, but it is also very affordable, and very easy to drive.
One of the differences with this car is the driver feedback you get from the car. There are a couple of new features here which will actually change your driving habits. It is these new features which immediately impressed us and got us thinking about how best to let you all know about it - and the 2012 Toyota Prius Challenge was born!
Local couple George & Irma Whittington were the lucky winners of $2500 cash in Honda NZ's March Honda Civic draw.
All they had to do was to come along to the dealership at the corner of Hardy and Rutherford Street and take the new 2012 Honda Civic for a test drive. Their names were then entered into a nationwide draw, which they won.
Not only did they get to experience the motoring masterpiece that is the 9th generation Honda Civic, they also got rewarded handsomely for doing so.
Bowater Honda salesman Nick D'evereux was on hand to present them with the cheque from Honda, which they were very excited to be receiving.
It is always fantastic to be able to share in these such events, and great to see big prizes going to local people!
