Toyota manufactures reliable cars with high gas mileage and affordable prices. The new Toyota lineup maintains the quality they’re known for, and the new features they’re adding may make it worth taking the leap into a new model.


The Yaris is a compact vehicle that’s perfect for anyone’s first car. It has a low starting MSRP of $15,250 for the 3-Door L model and gets high gas mileage at 30 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

It also comes with technology features such as Bluetooth connectivity, HD Radio technology, USB ports, and steering wheel-mounted controls.


If you’re in the market for a family vehicle, you can pick up the 2017 Toyota Sienna for a starting MSRP of $32,540 for the LE model. It features an all-new powertrain that improves horsepower, acceleration, and fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
