2017 Toyota Prius Test Drive Review

After 20 years in production, the Toyota Prius has become a global icon for hybrid electric vehicles, but last year’s introduction of the four-generation Prius gave this fuel-sipping hatchback major improvements to style and handling.

2016 Toyota Avalon Limited Hybrid Test Drive Review

What you are looking at here is, in my opinion, the most underrated car in Toyota’s fleet. It’s the 2016 Avalon Limited Hybrid and it’s one of the most enjoyable and well-appointed full size hybrids on the market today. While other cars in this segment rely on gimmicks and options, the Avalon Hybrid simply goes about the business of getting up to 40-mpg and leaving drivers free of fatigue after a long day on the road. 2016 Toyota Avalon Limited Hybrid Exterior: By utilizing an organic design approach, the Avalon…
