Toyota Prius Wins New Best Value Car Title

As far as durability, reliability and performance are concerned, the Toyota Prius is the best bargain a man can strike with an auto dealer. On the other hand, the Nissan Armada doesn’t fare too well in this department. It therefore does not end up on the wish list of car aficionados. 

The Toyota Prius offers the best mileage in the form of a cost price amounting to merely 47 cents per mile. The Honda Fit had held the #1 position for the past four years but last year the Toyota Prius gained ground and therefore surpassed it to reach the topmost spot. 

The fuel economy of this car is superb. And it is a bargain worth its weight in gold. Although not exactly an inexpensive car, it gives you the coolest driving experience that money can buy. Meanwhile, its poor cousin, the Armada costs $1.20 per mile. That is not quite what the consumers are looking for in economical terms. 

The Toyota Lexus too ranked among the top three slots in the list of best cars. And Subaru and Mazda also happened to be high-ranking vehicles in the roster of the means of transportation. Over 200 cars were gauged by the Consumer Reports and the results speak for themselves.

Lexus CT200h: Hatch goes for mpg over mph, and that’s OK (Video)

I like the CT200h, a hybrid hatchback that puts the Lexus spin on Toyota’s popular Prius. There is a spoiler, however, if you read or listen to too many car jockeys: The CT is one sporty-looking compact, especially in the fiery red that graced my tester. Once you get behind the wheel, though, its performance doesn’t match that look. That observation noted, let’s put it to rest. I wasn’t annoyed by the CT’s leisurely acceleration. This is about fuel efficiency, not sprinting pas ...

Hybrid Highway: Two into one

The first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, the Toyota Prius, went on sale in 1997, but it was nearly a century earlier that the first hybrid automobile was developed. In 1897, German carmaker Henri Pieper unveiled his petro-electric automobile, and a year later his countryman Ferdinand Porsche also developed a gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle. When put up against that first generation Prius, those two early hybrids appear crude compa ...
