Why Buy the 2018 Toyota Prius

February 12th, 2018 by

When three of 2018’s 10 best hybrid and electric cars (as assessed by U.S. News & World Report) are from the Toyota Prius family, you know the Toyota brand has something special going. The Toyota Prius Prime and Toyota Prius v are exceptional cars that we’ll spotlight in a future blog. But today, we’re focusing on the family’s highest-ranked member: the inimitable 2018 Toyota Prius.

Full disclosure: there are a few plug-in hybrid vehicles that earn a little bit better mileage than a 2018 Toyota Prius. But if you don’t have the time to consistently charge a vehicle, or you lack access to a charging port, then for our money there’s no better pure hybrid than the 2018 Toyota Prius. Sure, it’s capable of delivering 50 mpg, and that’s a big deal–but what sets this car apart from the competition is just how well-rounded it is. It’s fun to drive, offers terrific visibility from inside a quiet, comfortable cabin, and comes with an extensive list of standard safety equipment that leaves other hybrid cars in the dust.

Our Toyota dealers near Fayetteville, GA love the fact that all seven 2018 Toyota Prius trims come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ package. We also love the magic under every trim’s hood: a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, capable of 121 horsepower and paired with two electric motors/generators and a smooth-shifting continuously variable transmission (CVT). Technology® is also a huge selling point for the 2018 Toyota Prius, with every trim integrating Bluetooth phone/audio, a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, Siri® Eyes Free, and a six-speaker sound system. Higher-end trims add even more advanced tech, including Toyota Entune™ streaming apps, satellite/HD radio, and wireless phone charging.

In the big city or in the wild blue yonder, nothing beats a 2018 Toyota Prius!
