Five reasons to make Prius your next vehicle

Posted Monday, Jan 06, 2014 by nhtwpprod

High gas prices and a struggling economy are just two reasons that hybrids have been gaining in sales. Another reason is the improvements that have been made in technology over the last decade that allow drivers to drive longer distances and at higher speeds. The Toyota Prius is a popular choice in Los Angeles car sales for a number of reasons. These are the top 5:

An estimated 50mpg city and highway combined. That’s great news for your wallet and for the environment.

The 2014 Toyota Prius was given a 4-Star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), based on a measurement of frontal, side and rollover crashworthiness.

Cruise control is one of the features that drivers consider a priority when looking for a new vehicle. With Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, the 2014 Prius automatically adjusts the speed of the vehicle to maintain the preset following distance between you and the vehicle directly to the front of you.

Unlike traditional hybrids, the Prius has a lot of room for the driver and the passengers. It also has an abundance of cargo space in the hatchback design, making it extremely versatile.

Affordability always matters, and the Toyota Prius is one of the most affordable hybrids on the market. Ranked #11 in Affordable Midsize Cars, buyers can get even lower prices on a certified 2013 used Toyota Prius.

If you shop for Toyota cars online, you will find that there are 4 different models of Prius to choose from to meet a range of needs. The original Prius that started it all — the city-friendly Prius C, which is super compact and the most affordable of the group; Prius V, with the most cargo space; and the Prius Plug-In, which works in plug-in mode or EV Mode, for greater fuel savings and driving flexibility.
