2013 Toyota Prius (L) vs Honda Insight (R)

These days everyone seems to be getting on the green bandwagon. So what better way to do so than by purchasing a Limbaugh Toyota Prius? Because when it comes to hybrid vehicles the Toyota Prius sets the standard. With an unprecedented value in cost to purchase, maintain and fill up at the tank the 2013 Toyota Prius C was ranked by Driving.ca.com as the number one fuel efficient hybrid. It only costs a mere $955 a year to keep the tank full. That’s thanks in large part to its 1.5L, four-cylinder, gas and electric motor and CVT engine.

So we all know that the Prius takes the cake in miles per gallon but how well does it stack up against its compact hybrid competition in Birmingham?

Well for starters the 2013 Toyota Prius is stylish, reliable and performance-driven. With all of the fun technology that the Prius features and fuel efficiency it’s crazy not to consider driving one throughout Birmingham or Central Alabama. Not only will you save money up front by purchasing a Prius but it will save you money in the long run on gas and maintenance.

When compared to its direct competitor the Honda Insight, the Prius in Birmingham gets 51 mpg in the city and an incredible 48 mpg on the highway. The Insight only gets 44 city and 41 highway. Bottom line: better miles per gallon mean spending less on filling up your tank and saving money in the bank. Limbaugh Toyota has the Prius you want and need featuring more spacious cabin room, cargo room and more aerodynamics. The Prius in Central Alabama also has three driving modes whereas the Insight only has two. If power is your preference then you’ll want to choose the Prius because it gets 134 horsepower over the Insight’s 98 horsepower.

As if you needed more reasons to drive a Limbaugh Toyota Prius, its safety features are top-of-the-line. With driver knee airbags and Touch Tracer Display the Prius once again comes out on top of the Insight. The Touch Tracer Display is a device that duplicates the image of your steering wheel on your instrument panel allowing you to keep your eyes on the task at hand. The Insight does not have these features. Safety first is our motto at Limbaugh.

You can drive a Limbaugh Toyota Prius today and get peace of mind in safety and value all while enjoying an amazing driving experience!
