The Toyota Prius was the first hybrid to be prepared for mass marketing in 1997, and so when looking at hybrid cars, it's always a good idea to look at those who did it first. Granted, while ever single manufacturer is trying to add a hybrid to their line-up, you'll want to do the actual research yourself. While thinking about getting a Toyota, here is something to think about while you're wondering about that last piece of Chicken:

1. Toyota Prius - Other than being the butt of Jeff Dunham jokes, this particular vehicle has a starting price of around $21,000 and happens to be one of the most widely known and acclaimed hybrids out in the market now. While the first models of the Prius had a few major kinks to iron out, the vehicle has succeeded and is now moving forward in recognition. The only problem is that the Prius may be able to seat 5, but it is an extremely tight space if not done correctly. The Prius is also incredibly light, so while it would be a great vehicle for driving, it has very little clout as helpful. The actual fuel tank's capacity is around 11.9 gallons, which is fairly decent, and the actual car itself weighs almost three tons. As for actual miles per gallon ratings, the Prius is able to get a combined rating that is around 46 mpg. That makes this particular vehicle one of the top and most fuel-efficient hybrids on the market.

2. Toyota Camry - While the Camry is substantially cheaper than the Prius, starting at only $18,720, the vehicle has merit on its own. The car is only 200 pounds heavier than its typical counterpart and is also hardly able to fit the five people that are supposedly in the seating capacity. The mpg ratings for the vehicle are 33 mpg in the city and 34 mpg in the highway, better than many other hybrids on the road, especially the Toyota Highlander. The fuel tank also has an incredible capacity, and that certainly makes this car much easier to deal with. The drawbacks on this particular vehicle include a 4 foot reduction in storage space from the typical gas-powered Camry. As for the weight, the Camry is around 3,680 pounds, and that is only 200 lbs over the gas-powered Camry, which isn't at all normal.

3. Toyota Highlander - So, the Highlander is an SUV hybrid by Toyota that starts at a jaw-dropping price of $27,300. The car can easily fit up to five people, and possibly more in the vehicle. The towing capacity is pretty hefty, and there is plenty of space to hold luggage, but it's not nearly as strong as perhaps the conventional Highlander. The fuel tank is smaller than the conventional, and the fuel-efficiency is only 9 mpg over its conventional counterpart, which isn't really as much as it nearly could be.

And now you've had a chance to look at the three major Toyota hybrids that are on the market as it is, but it's always up to you, the consumer, to pick the best one for you.
