Why Buy a Toyota

With so many automakers in the market, it can be hard to choose the right car for you. Friends and family likely have their own suggestions while reviewers and top magazines have different picks. Here at Glen Toyota, we can answer the most important question of all: why buy a Toyota?

  1. Resale Value – In addition to offering affordable new models, Toyotas tend to have higher resale values as well. The brand typically dominates Kelley Blue Book resale values. In fact, both Toyota and Lexus won the “Best Resale Value Award” at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
  2. Lifespan – As long as you keep up with regular maintenance, there’s no reason your Toyota won’t be on the road for many years to come. Known for quality and reliability, a whopping 80% of vehicles sold 20 years ago are still on the road today. There isn’t any other automaker who can say that.
  3. Safety – Toyota models generally earn top safety scores from both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). As a matter of fact, the 2016 Toyota Camry earned five stars overall from the NHTSA and the IIHS named the Camry a “Top Safety Pick+.”

Why Take Road Trips in a Toyota

There are plenty of vehicles to take road trips in and while many choose the average sedan or crossover, that can get expensive. If you plan on heading across the country, a more fuel efficient car will save you a good amount of money. That’s where Toyota comes in. Here’s why you should take road trips in a Toyota:

  • Money – Fun fact: you can travel the entire United States in a Toyota Prius for about $500. That’s cheap for any vacation, let alone traveling the entirety of the United States of America.
  • Space – Believe it or not, the Toyota Prius features an absolutely incredible amount of space. With enough room to fit a small mattress with the rear seats down, there are few vehicles that can compete in sheer amount of space.
  • Comfort – With the sheer amount the Prius has to offer, avoiding hotels is easy. You won’t be too hot or cold either. Thanks to the hybrid system, climate control can run all night without using much gas at all. Climate control will run off the battery and the engine will turn on in order to charge ever so often. Even better, the engine is so quiet that you won’t even notice it’s on.
