Welcoming back a 2012 Toyota Prius C



This is a local, one owner Prius C which was just traded in for a new Toyota Tacoma 4X4.

We sold this car new to a local Squamish couple and we have a full Toyota service history on file. It is accident-free and looks extremely good both inside and out.  The pride of ownership is evident.

The Prius C is the most efficient compact car we offer, delivering an astonishing 3.5/4.0 L/100km or 81/76 MPG. There are few very few vehicles in the world which cost less to drive than a Prius C.

It is a fun car to drive, very easy to park yet it feels secure on a winding road.


This car comes equipped with Bluetooth capability, USB and AUX audio inputs, it has air conditioning, power windows, power heated mirrors, power door locks with keyless entry and cruise control.

The cargo area is spacious and goods are easily hidden under the luggage area cover. The rear seat backs are 60/40 split and can fold forward to create an impressively large storage space.

A check of the CarProof Vehicle History Report identifies this car as both a one owner and accident-free.

We have comprehensively inspected, serviced and detailed this Prius. Four new all season tires were just installed.

This is a Toyota Certified Used Vehicle with Toyota power train warranty coverage is in place to 100,000 kilometres or until April 19, 2018.

Odometer reading: 51,125 kilometres. Offered at $15,800 with financing available at 2.9%.


Thoughts on the new RAV4 Hybrid

DJREVCBB0070 (23)

Toyota introduced a Hybrid version of the RAV4 to Canada in December.  Since our first one arrived (a Limited model ordered by a local Toyota Highlander owner) on December 4th, six more have found new homes in our community.

Traditionally the Hybrid models represented a rather considerable step up in price but with the RAV4 XLE AWD, the step is modest at $2815.  In the case of the Limited, the hybrid carries a $3440 premium though it adds features not offered in the non-hybrid.

The Hybrid has more power than the regular RAV4 yet it uses significantly less fuel.  It has greater performance, better handling, a 250 lb higher (now 1750lb) towing capacity and a hybrid system warranty that stretches to 8 years or 160,000km.

How much more efficient is the Hybrid?  Combined fuel economy of 7.2L/100 km (39 MPG) vs 9.4 (30 MPG).  The city fuel savings are even more dramatic: 6.9 (41 MPG) vs 10.6 (27 MPG).  Assuming one drove 20,000km per year using fuel costing $1.09 per litre, the RAV4 will consume $2071 worth of fuel, the Hybrid $1570.

Toyota Canada has allocated us quite a number of RAV4 Hybrids to arrive over the coming months so waiting times are quite tolerable.  Please drop by for an evaluation drive.
