Tech Cars: Toyota Prius

Written by | Tech

Calling this car a Hi-Tech Car is an understatement. Not only that you have the world’s most efficient car, you also get save our environment. I’m talking about the Toyota Prius, the first ever hybrid car in the Philippines. This may also be a late post.. but hey.. this is all about tech and this car is more than a Hi-tech car. 🙂

So much has been written about this car, but what catches my attention about this car is that is it’s way ahead on most cars here in Ph.

Below are the most notably features of the Toyota Prius:

  • Touch Tracer Display
  • Heads-Up Display (HUD)
  • Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), 7 Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags
  • Active Headrest

The Prius has 3 drive modes for the different road condition:

  • Eco Mode
  • Power Mode
  • EV (Electric Vehicle) Drive Mode

With its 16V 1.8-liter engine, the Toyota Prius boast of having the power output similar to a 2.4-liter engine. With its aerodynamics body, Toyota Prius comes in 5 colors; Abyss Green Metallic, White Pearl Crystal Shine, Silver Metallic, Red Mica Metallic and Dark Blue Mica. This is the 3rd generation model of Prius and it is available for Php 2.25 M.

The price tag may be a turn off but saving our environment should not have any price tag… ayt? 😉
