Toyota Corolla Hybrid wins ‘Best Hybrid or Electric Car for the Money’
With stellar fuel economy and increased passenger safety, the Toyota Corolla Hybrid won the ‘2021 Best Hybrid and Electric Car for the Money’ award.
U.S. News gave the Corolla Hybrid a score of 7.7/10 for its long list of standard features and its excellent fuel efficiency. However, the vehicle lost points due to its below-average cargo space and uncomfortable seats.
With a rating of 8.3/10, the Toyota Avalon comes in first for both the ‘2021 Best Large Car for the Money’ and ‘2021 Best Large Car for Families’.
U.S. News brags of the Avalon’s outstanding combination of cargo and passenger space, safety and reliability ratings, positive reviews from automotive journalists, and available family-friendly features. The only downside is the Avalon’s above-average starting price.
The reliable Camry wins ‘Best Midsize Car for the Money’
The Toyota Camry offers the best combination of quality and value in its class according to U.S. News. Its extensive list of standard safety tech, straightforward infotainment controls, a gentle ride, sharp steering, and a potent engine option make it clear as to why the Toyota Camry is ranked so highly with a score of 8.6/10.
However, the 2021 Camry has a slightly below-average trunk space and a noisy cabin so remember to keep that in mind when considering the Camry for your next vehicle.
