2017 Prius

Environmentalism and a solid ride don't have to be at odds with each other in Amarillo. Not every car has to guzzle gas on the daily commute, but not every environmentally conscious vehicle has to be impractical either. How do we know? Because we have the 2017 Toyota Prius, recently named the 2017 Eco-Friendly Car of the Year by Cars.com.

The Prius impresses in multiple area. First, obviously, in terms of gas mileage and eco-consciousness. The Prius Two Eco gets up to 58 mpg city, which helps save gas… and your bank account from the gas pump. It's also been estimated that the Prius family of vehicles has reduced the amount of CO2 emissions from being released by almost 12 million tons over a nearly two decade legacy.

But, again, let's not forget practicality. The Prius has 27.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 60/40 rear seats, but fold them down and you get 65.6 cubic feet. That's as much as some SUVs. Throw in wireless smartphone charging, and Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, and this is just about the perfect car.

Do your part for the environment by getting behind the wheel of the 2017 Toyota Prius. Browse our new Toyota inventory, arrange for a test drive at Street Toyota!
