If you think that it’s time to get a new car, whether as your first new purchase or as a replacement for a car you bought years ago, now is a good time. Automotive technology has continued to advance, and the commitment to both environmental friendliness and fuel efficiency means that Goderich Toyota has a line of new hybrid Toyota vehicles ready to meet your needs.
A hybrid vehicle is a relatively recent development in automobiles. It’s a car that combines two or more different power sources, switching from one or the other, or even working together, as the situation requires. By doing so, the car has lower emissions, which is good for the environment and uses less fuel, which is good for your wallet! This is one of the reasons why new cars with hybrid functionality are an excellent choice for drivers who want the best of both worlds, being more eco-friendly and lowering their gasoline budget.
Toyota has always been at the forefront of the hybrid technology movement, and for 2019, there’s a range of new cars to meet every driving style and need.
The Camry has always been a popular choice for people who want a good all-around sedan, but the 2019 Camry Hybrid comes in with some new features added to increase fuel efficiency and convenience. This is a car that takes advantage of the “Internet of Things” revolution, with Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility as standard in every car.
The Camry Hybrid also impresses by having a full, no-compromise trunk space equal to that of the non-hybrid model; no battery eats up precious storage space here. And for people who want more convenience in their interior, the cabin is both comfortable and has an array of pull out trays and anchor points designed to make it very accommodating to child safety seats. With LE, SE, and XLE models for different budgets, you have a lot of choices here.
SUVs continue to be a popular choice for many, and the RAV4 Hybrid is one of the best choices for Toyota vehicles in this configuration. One of the big watchwords for the RAV4 is safety. As an SUV, it comes packed with an impressive array of safety features as a standard, which consumers would often have to pay more for in other models to get comparable performance.
The RAV4 Hybrid is a compact SUV that comes complete with a full redesign that includes Apple CarPlay standard for all models, as well as Safety Sense Suite 2.0, with features like adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, pedestrian detection, and forward collision mitigation. A spacious cabin means adult passengers will have a lot of room.
If you’re looking for one of the best mid-size SUVs in North America, the Highlander Hybrid is it for 2019’s new cars. Unlike the RAV4, the Highlander hasn’t had an all-new, ground up, major redesign, but it hasn’t needed to.
All-wheel drive is standard in this model, and it's paired with a hybrid 3.5L V6 engine and three electric motors that get a big boost in fuel efficiency, especially for city driving, moving at lower speeds with more frequent braking and acceleration.
The Prius line of Toyota vehicles practically defined the concept of a hybrid, and the Prius C is the perfect answer for drivers who are looking for a smaller, more compact, urban car to get around in major metropolitan areas. The “C” in Prius C, stands for “city,” and that’s what this car is all about.
Along with the famous Prius fuel efficiency, all models for 2019 come standard with keyless entry, rear-view cameras, LED head and tail lights, and a touchscreen that accepts voice commands. This is a fantastic car at this price point for people who need something to get them through the streets without taking a big bite out of the wallet for gasoline.
The 2019 Prius has gotten a little bit of a redesign in the front and rear, to change the look that past models were noted for. However, the most interesting addition to this year’s Prius is that it borrows from other Toyota vehicles, namely the RAV4, and offers an option for All-Wheel Drive. This doesn’t mean that the Prius AWD-e model is ready to go off-road for Canadian wilderness adventures, but it does mean similar handling and performance to RAV4, without having to own an SUV or pay an SUV’s prices. The standard Safety Sense Suite package is still included, making this a great all-around car choice.
2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid
Customers who love the Corolla must check out Toyota Corolla’s first-ever hybrid model. It’s an impressively quiet vehicle that makes zero compromise on passenger and luggage space or the safety and technology features inside. The 2020 Corolla Hybrid has three drive modes: Normal, Eco, and Sport. There’s also an EV mode that allows electric operations over short distances. All in all, it’s a hybrid model that will give tough competition to the existing options in the market.
The prime retains its overall design from 2017, but since that was a recent design refresh, it still looks contemporary and modern. Of course, the biggest appeal among this line of 2019 cars is that the Prime is the “plug-in” hybrid.
This means that can you plug the vehicle in and let the electric battery charge. On its own, the car can travel about 40 km on electricity alone. As a hybrid model, this means an impressive boost in fuel efficiency, especially for city driving, and if you commute less than 40 km, you may find yourself rarely needing to fill up on gas!
The 2019 new cars from Toyota all have something to offer to different drivers with different needs and budgets. However, one thing they all have in common is a big boost in fuel efficiency thanks to their hybrid engines.
