These days, when it comes to fuel economy cars are lucky to get over 30 mpg, and getting near 40 can sometimes seem like a pipe dream. But the kind of fuel economy cars like the Toyota Prius can get leaves most other models in the dust. In fact, in Consumer Reports 2013 rating of the most fuel efficient cars, the Prius occupied four of the top ten spots. Probably why Toyota dealerships have a hard time keeping them in stock.
But even if you can’t get your hands on a Prius, Toyota offers a number of reliable, fuel efficient vehicles. Since they released their first passenger car back in 1933 (the AA), Toyota has been at the forefront of the modern automotive industry, becoming the largest manufacturer in the year 2012.
What does that mean for you as a driver? It means that Toyota is always moving forward. Toyota vehicles are consistently rated near the top of their respective classes for safety, dependability, and customer satisfaction. That kind of high-performing service comes from decades of diligence, and a commitment to quality.
The Corolla, for example, has been a top-selling vehicle around the world since its introduction in 1966. By 2014 it’s estimated that Corolla sales will exceed 40 million. Those numbers don’t happen by accident. Corolla owners know they have a car they can depend on, made by a company that stands by their work.
When talking about safety, reliability, and fuel economy cars today all make pretty intriguing claims. If you have a hard time deciphering the maze of marketing and onslaught of advertising, just remember: numbers don’t lie. Toyota has been building quality, affordable vehicles since the 1930s, and is still at the top of their game. That should tell you something about the cars they build.
