Not only will you have an exceptional selection of new Toyota hybrids in Orlando to explore, you’ll also have two locations at which to do it!

Is the new Toyota Prius in Orlando right for your hybrid needs?

So many different types of hybrid cars are available on the market right now; it can seem a little daunting to narrow all of those choices down to just one. That’s why we’re here to help! We’re taking one of our best-selling vehicles – the 2014 Toyota Prius in Orlando – and stacking it up against competitors to see how it fares in comparison. It IS the best-selling hybrid on the planet, but we’re still putting the facts in front of you to show you why that title is so well-deserved! 

One of the biggest reasons why drivers buy new hybrid cars is because of the amazing savings that come available in terms of fuel. Hybrid cars utilize an electric motor in addition to a gasoline engine, which means the amount of gas needed to get from point A to point B is reduced by quite a bit. 


Orlando Toyota Prius excels in fuel efficiency and interior space 

  • However, some hybrids perform better than others! The 2014 Toyota Prius is endowed with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive System, and it’s a parallel hybrid. That means it can switch easily back and forth between the electric motor and the gasoline engine, saving you big when it’s time to fill up at the pump. To be exact, you’ll get 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway. The Honda Insight, on the other hand, utilizes a mild hybrid system – it relies more on the gasoline engine for power. It only allots 41 mpg in the city and 44 mpg on the highway! 
  • Performance is also better in terms of power when it comes to the 2014 Toyota Prius in Orlando. It offers 98 horsepower, which is a jump from the 88 horsepower at which the Honda Insight maxes out. 
  • Let’s say space is on your must-have list when it comes to a new Toyota hybrid in Orlando. The 2014 Toyota Prius is much more spacious than the Honda Insight; in fact, it has 94 cubic feet of space on its interior and is classified as a Midsize Car! The Honda Insight falls short with just 85 cubic feet of space and its Compact Car classification. 

In short, the new Toyota Prius in Orlando is the world’s best-selling hybrid for a reason. If you want the best of the best when it comes to performance, technology, safety, and comfort, you just found it!
