Prius Bags Consumer Guide Editors’ Choice Best Buy Award

Toyota’s Prius family was awarded for a second year in a row the Consumer Guide Editors’ Choice Best Buy.

Among its annual Best Buys, Consumer Guide Automotive picks a vehicle that stands out above the rest—regardless of class—with its Editors’ Choice Best Buy award; its editors chose the Prius family once again.

The publication explained the choice of the whole family rather than a particular Prius model by stating “it is because of the Prius that “hybrid” is now a household word. It is also because of the Prius that most car shoppers today recognize hybrid technology as safe, reliable, and effective.”

Editors of Consumer Guide stated “the absence of hybrid compromise, the real-world 50-mpg fuel economy, and reasonable starting prices that define the Prius ownership experience” to justify the award.

The publication concluded its statement by saying “There is no way to overstate the impact Toyota’s Prius has had on the new-car marketplace. Fortunately for consumers, the Prius family of vehicles has evolved into completely contemporary family and commuter vehicles that ask little in exchange for the stellar fuel economy they return. For that reason—and for the second year in a row—the Prius model range is the worthy recipient of our annual Editors’ Choice Best Buy award.”
