Toyota Prius Awards

2017 Toyota Prius named “Best Car for the Money”, 
“Safest car” and “Car of the Year”


There are so many hybrids to choose from now you may find it hard to pick the one for you. Toyota was the first one to introduce Hybrid and is still dominating the green car sales. Their history of excellence is part of the reason, but the 2017 Prius is holding its own in the hybrid car competition.

The new Toyota Prius has enjoyed great success in the annual awards season, amassing seven trophies and titles during its first few months on sale. Notably, the honours are not limited to environmental performance but reflect the fourth-generation Prius’s all-round excellence.

The 2017 Prius has recently received the U.S. News & World Report Autos “Best Cars for the Money” top spot. U.S. News mentioned,

“The Toyota Prius is the Best Hybrid Car for the Money, and with fuel economy that outpaces other hybrids, it’s not hard to see why. Still, there’s no sense in buying a hybrid if you’re not going to enjoy owning it, and there the Prius performs well too. The Prius’ ride is smooth and composed, and there’s plenty of space for your family in its roomy interior.”

Old and new Prius fans will appreciate the ultra-modern design and multiple trim options. If the base 2017 Toyota Prius is not luxurious enough for you, step up to one of the higher trim levels. While on the road, a wireless charging pad enables you to keep your phone full of juice. The available heated seats are a must for the drivers who commute during the wintertime. Meanwhile, a head-up display assists drivers in keeping their eyes above the steering wheel.

For Carbuyer, the hybrid hatchback saw off everyone else in its search for the Best Economical Car, while What Car? considered the Toyota Prius to be the safest model among the market’s large family cars.

The Prius 2017 models come standard with Toyota Safety Sense and are loaded with technology. These additions help to explain why the 2017 Toyota Prius has taken all these top awards – what a great outcome!
