2017 Toyota Prius

As gasoline prices keep increasing and the environment keeps getting more and more polluted, drivers near Indianapolis, IN are looking for alternatives to gasoline. Green cars are far from a new concept, but they’re slowly but surely gaining in popularity, largely thanks to the efforts from the Toyota brand. The automaker is one of the originators when it comes to green car technology, as the Toyota Prius was one of the first hybrid cars and continues to be a leader in the segment. Here at Toyota of Muncie, we understand that green cars can be confusing, so we’re happy to answer any questions about them.

 

What is a Green Car?

 

A broad definition of a green car is that it is a car that is more environmentally friendly than a conventional car. Instead of using environmentally-unfriendly and inefficient fossil fuels and combustion engines, green cars use alternative means to power their engines. They often use less petroleum than conventional cars or use renewable energy sources to fuel their engines. There are a few different types of green cars, including electric cars, hybrid cars, hydrogen cars, and solar cars, all of which use slightly different ways to move forward.

 

What Types of Green Cars Do We Sell?

 

One of the best-selling Toyota cars of all-time, the Toyota Prius, is a hybrid green car. The new 2017 Toyota Prius is now available at our dealership, and this plug-in hybrid is the most efficient iteration of the four-door sedan to date. If you’re shopping for a green SUV, check out the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, which is new for 2017 and actually features slightly faster acceleration than the gasoline version of the Toyota RAV4.

2017 Kia Sedona

Here at Kia of Muncie, we know that buying a new car isn’t just one big decision. You have to make a few different choices before you make your purchase, and one of the most important things you need to choose is your drivetrain. Whether you want an efficient sedan or a reliable crossover that can comfortably seat your entire family, you want to be sure that your vehicle has all of the capabilities that you need.

 

We offer a wide variety of new Kia cars on our lot and a number of drivetrain options. One of the most common choices is front-wheel drive. You’ll commonly find this option in sedans and crossovers. There are many reasons that this option is so popular. First of all, the components needed for a front-wheel drive system take up less space, which means that your new ride is roomier. You’ll also find that front-wheel drive cars offer dependable performance in winter conditions and better fuel economy.

 

One front-wheel drive car we offer on our lot is the 2017 Kia Sorento, but that’s not the only choice that you have when it comes to this unique crossover. You can equip your Kia Sorento with an all-wheel drive system, which doesn’t need to be turned on manually like a four-wheel drive option. An all-wheel drive model can handle a wide range of road conditions because it sends the right amount of power to each wheel.

 

There’s also the rear-wheel drive option, which will be offered on the upcoming 2018 Kia Stinger. Cars like this sporty coupe give drivers better traction as acceleration increases. They also tend to be balanced for top performance and better cornering capabilities.

 

And if you still need help figuring out which drivetrain or model works for you, visit our Kia dealership near Marion, IN. We’ll make it easy to find a car that you’ll love. We hope to see you soon for a test drive!
