Toyota Prius Named a Best Family Car of 2018

As your local Toyota dealers, it thrills us to share information about our most award-winning models, especially when they’re being recognized for family friendliness. The stunning Toyota Prius was chosen as one of the 10 Best Family Cars of 2018 according to Parents Magazine and Edmunds.

Just when we thought the Toyota Prius had seen its fair share of awards, yet another has been added to the list. These top picks were chosen for safety, family friendliness, performance, comfort, and value.

This list, which was just released for the 11th consecutive year, is based on the evaluation of more than 300 models. All the winners this year have received a five out of five safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as well. The top 20 finalists were evaluated with a car seat installation test and considered for other perks for parents.

“The family car is one of the most important purchases parents will make, and it’s no longer simply for getting from point A to point B—it’s everything from mom’s me-time to kids’ entertainment,” said Liz Vaccariello, Editor-in-Chief of Parents. “We spend hours of precious time in our cars—making grocery store trips, doing school drop-off, and meeting for playdates. This year’s top picks highlight features that are important to today’s parents, such as having plenty of room for multiple car seats and trunk space.” 

The new Toyota Prius was the only hybrid that make the final cut, and we can’t stop raving about the 52 mpg efficiency and self-charging electric motor.
