Features

Good Gas Mileage

This car can go 58 MPG in the city, and 53 MPG on the highway. This is important to me because it will allow me to save money on gas. I would rather invest more in a car with good gas mileage that will cost me less money on gas, than a cheaper car that I will constantly need to be filled up.

Environmentally Friendly

This car is very environmentally friendly. Not only does it use LED lights, it also uses hybrid technology to keep the emissions, as well as the gasoline usage low. It also has EV and ECO modes that can be used while driving that save gas and release less emissions. This feature is very important to me as I feel very strongly about the environment and I would like to have a smaller carbon foot print, which can be supported through this car.

Aesthetic Options

When buying the car new, you can choose the exterior color and the enterior color for no additional cost. You can also add additional packages, such as the paint protection film that covers the car and prevents scratches and chips in the paint for an additional fee. You can also buy other accessories such as different wheel spokes, body side molding, and roof racks.

Safety features

This is probably the most important thing to look for in a car. All new vehicles produced by Toyota have this Star Safety System built in at no additional cost. This system includes advanced air bag systems, brake assistance, traction control and much more. This is very important because I would like to know that I as well as my passengers will be safe while traveling in this car.

Price and Payments

The Prius Two Eco costs $25,090 according to Toyotas MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price).

Payments

With the total cost being $25,090, I can take out a loan from the First Citizens Bank in Asheville for 2.19% APR over 48 months. This means I could pay off the car in 4 years. With this, I would be paying $546.41 every month. After the 48 months, I will have not only paid the price of the car, but I will also have paid $1,137.86 in interest on the loan, making the total price of the car $26,227.86
