The idea of the average car driver keeps changing, and the vehicles Toyota is producing continue to evolve to meet those changing needs. In addition to the number of current favorites in the selection of Toyota North Hollywood used cars, there are also some new and improved models in the selection of new vehicles for 2017. The selection meets the needs and desires of drivers of every age and lifestyle.
It’s not surprising that Toyota continues to make the first hybrid even better for drivers and the environment. The Prime model comes with a significant increase in battery capacity that equals an increase in electric driving range. The 4.4 kWh battery of the previous Prius plug-in has been upgraded to an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion pack which gives drivers about 22 miles of driving with all-electric before transitioning to gas-electric power.
It’s hard to believe that the Corolla has been a regular fixture on the lots of Los Angeles car dealerships for fifty years! To celebrate, Toyota is making the 2017 model with an update to the bumpers, headlights, taillights, and grille. Some of the features, like the 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine stay the same, making the model the perfect choice for new drivers or those who have been committed to driving the model but who still like the idea of something a little different.
The Corolla iM includes the sporty features that younger drivers prefer. It is made with an aggressive aero kit that gives a new look to the front fascia, rear bumper, and side skirts. The car has a honeycomb grille, and a spoiler and chrome-tipped exhaust that make this car a good-looking choice for any driver, but it doesn’t stop there.
The interior is even more impressive, with an upscale dashboard, 7-inch touchscreen, sport gauge cluster, audio with navigation, and a whole lot more. Eight standard airbags and a Pre-Collision system bring a new level of safety to the drive by helping to prevent collisions or to reduce the impact.
Lovers of the SUV know that the overall design doesn’t usually change, and the same can be expected with the 2017 model. What you can expect is a redesigned chrome-plated grille, new bumpers, modified fenders, highly effective air exhausters, and new, more effective LED headlights.
The midsize SUV has a loyal following that has grown broader with the introduction of the hybrid version in 2006, five years after the release of the original Highlander version. The 2017 models of each version include some changes, with the non-hybrid model being upgraded from a six-speed to an eight-speed.
The hybrid version gets more extensive changes that include the bumpers, taillights, and headlights. Additionally, the SE trim level comes with sports suspension and special trim and wheels. Both models gain the Toyota Safety Sense bundle as standard safety equipment.
The Sienna minivan trades in its 3.5-liter V-6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission for the newest 3.5-liter V-6 with direct injection, and the eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the six-speed as standard on every model. The new version will offer improved acceleration and better fuel economy.
