The Toyota Prius is arguably the best hybrid vehicle on the planet and should be enjoyed by buyers regardless of credit score. Toyota has invested years of research and money into making sure the Prius gets the best gas mileage with little impact to the environment, making it a fantastic commuter vehicle. They’ve done this at a low price to the consumer without sacrificing ride comfort, vehicle features, or ride performance. Today the Prius has evolved from a single model to an entire family of vehicles. Here are some Prius models to choose from if you are interested in buying a Prius with poor credit.
Can You Find An Early Model Prius for Sale?
The first Prius models for sale went on the market in the late 1990s, however many of those are becoming harder to find on the market. If you are looking for an older used Prius for sale you are going to have better luck finding a second generation (2003-2009) or third generation (2009-2015) model for sale unless you want a very high mileage vehicle. The second generation Prius includes the hatchback version you have become so used to seeing on the road. Believe it or not, there was a 4-door Prius with a trunk before the hatchback! The nice thing about the design change was that it allowed for a large amount of storage space and versatility since the backseats are made to fold down in the newer Prius’. During the 2000’s the Prius became a wildly popular vehicle with hundreds of thousands of them sold in the United States alone. This is great for used car buyers because there are now many used Prius cars on the market. We frequently have a used Prius (2003-2009 model) at Washington Auto Credit for purchase, if you are interested in an early model check out our inventory or call us if you don’t see what you are looking for.
What are the Different Types of Prius for Sale?
In the year 2011, Toyota made some drastic changes to the Prius. They announced that not only would consumers have the option to purchase the normal Prius that they have grown to love, but that additional models would become available to the public. With this news, the Prius C, Prius V, and Prius Plug in we’re born. Here’s what you need to know about them…
The Prius C is a fun and agile Prius model is perfect for the commuter or city driver. It looks small on the the outside, but don’t let that fool you, the Prius C has impressive interior space. It averages over 50 miles per gallon in the city, and is offered in a great variety of fun colors.
The Prius V is perfect for families and drivers that need more space. It’s bigger than it’s siblings and offers over 34 cubic feet of cargo space. It might not get as good of gas mileage as the other Prius’ but it is a great alternative to an SUV or station wagon.
Prius Plug-in is great if you don’t like fueling up at all. The Plug in version can plug in at home to charge the battery so you are good to go a good distance without hitting the gas station.
