5 reasons to buy the 2014 Toyota Prius

1. Hybrid performance

If you're looking for a hybrid vehicle, it's probably safe to say that you're a planet-conscious person who's looking to reap the benefits of an additional electric motor. The main advantage of that is great mileage. In the case of the 2014 Toyota Prius, the base 1.8L four-cylinder engine model achieves an EPA-estimated 48 combined mpg, taking the edge off power-hungry city driving and making commuting easier than ever.

 The hybrid nature of the 2014 Toyota Prius also impacts its emissions; it creates an EPA-estimated 186 grams of CO2 per mile.

2. Smart use of power

Linked to fuel economy, the 2014 Toyota Prius is designed to smartly favor electricity over gas whenever it can. From moving off to traveling at low speeds, the Prius uses its electric motor alongside the internal combustion engine. When acceleration is at its maximum, the gas engine takes over while the electric motor gathers more power. This then kicks in during deceleration to store more energy in the hybrid battery. When the vehicle comes to a stop, the gas engine switches off entirely to reduce emissions. It's this clever use of energy that really makes the 2014 Toyota Prius stand out in its class.

3. Plenty of space

Despite its sleek outward appearance, the 2014 Toyota Prius boasts plenty of space inside the cabin for family trips and carpooling alike. As well as a generous 21.6 cu-ft of cargo room—more than enough for serious shopping trips or weekends away—there's ample space for children and adults alike in this five-seat vehicle. There are 38.6 inches of headroom and 42.5 inches of legroom in the front, and 37.6 inches of headroom and 36 inches of legroom in the back, making it suitable for most passengers.

4. Remote A/C

Comfort is a priority in the 2014 Toyota Prius, and one particularly enjoyable element of this is the remote air conditioning. When within 30 yards of the vehicle, the key fob can be used to activate the remote A/C system, which is powered solely by the energy stored in the hybrid battery. This allows you to achieve a pre-set temperature of your choosing before the engine is switched on to ensure a more pleasant ride.

5. Aerodynamic design

The design of the Prius is iconic, but it's not just for looks. Toyota worked hard to make it as aerodynamic as possible and invested in huge amounts of testing to achieve a 0.25 drag coefficient in the 2014 model. This has been balanced with a roomy and comfortable interior, which is why there's a peak in the center of the roofline—that central apex exists to optimize headroom. Not only that, but the front and rear bumpers are designed to lower wind resistance, which also adds to the appeal of the 2014 Toyota Prius.
