What's the Best Toyota for a Long Commute?


If you live in the Cheboygan and northern Michigan area, you know that traffic and long commutes can put a huge dent in your pocketbook due to the high cost of gas. While smaller vehicles may be more fuel efficient, if you're going to be in your automobile for long periods of time as you travel to and from work, you don't want to feel cramped. Toyota is well known for their fuel-efficient vehicles, and the Toyota Prius c and Toyota Highlander Hybrid are particularly excellent choices for you if you drive more than 40 miles a day.

Toyota Prius c Hybrid

No discussion about fuel-efficient vehicles is complete unless it includes the Prius. It’s long been the most popular hybrid vehicle on the market, and it's no surprise why. Along with an incredible 53 mpg fuel economy for highway driving, the Prius is also roomy and has a number of technological bells and whistles. Unlike many other fuel-efficient offerings, the Prius c has a commendable 87.4 cubic feet of room, and rear fold-down seats give you plenty of additional cargo space.

The Prius c is no slouch when it comes to the latest tech either. Even the standard trim includes remote keyless entry, climate control and a suite of safety features. Bluetooth and wireless technology are also included, which are perfect for keeping you comfortable during a long drive.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid

If you need more room for cargo space, car pooling or want to be able to take family vacations in a roomy vehicle without breaking the bank at the gas station, the Highlander Hybrid is the perfect SUV for you. Thanks to Toyota's hybrid technology, this SUV gets an impressive 25 mpg for highway driving while still providing seating for eight. The Highlander Hybrid manages to provide a great deal of foot room, head room and cargo space, and it’s an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus, so you can be sure that you and your passengers are well protected.

Backup cameras, Bluetooth connectivity and a touch screen on your dash are standard with the Highlander, making driving enjoyable and long commutes fly by.
