The Smart Buy Average Market Price
The Smart Buy Average Market Price is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions either in your local area or nationally. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the vehicle you have selected and as you have configured it. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations than your specified vehicle configuration. The data underlying the Smart Buy Average Market Price calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Smart Buy Average Market Price is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
The Toyota Prius is a gas-electric hybrid that sets the standard for environmentally-friendly transportation. This front-wheel drive, five-door liftback delivers comfort, value and a smooth ride, as well as impressive fuel economy and low emissions. The Prius is available in six grades - Two, Two Eco, Three, Three Touring, Four and Four Touring. All trim levels employ hybrid powertrain technology that unites a 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine with a powerful electric drive motor to generate 121 combined horsepower. A continuously variable transmission (CVT), with selectable Normal and Power driving modes, is standard. Trim-dependent equipment includes: 15- and 17-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlights, passive entry/start, automatic climate control, heated front seats, eco-friendly SofTex upholstery, HD/satellite radio, a touch-screen audio display and Bluetooth wireless connectivity/music streaming, along with voice-activated navigation, smartphone integration and an in-cabin wireless charging system for Qi-compatible devices. Standard safety features include anti-lock brakes with brake assist, vehicle stability/traction control and a rear backup monitor, as well as eight airbags and Toyota Safety Sense. Hybrid-related components are backed by an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty. Following a complete redesign last year, the Toyota Prius carries over with minimal changes for 2017. Toyota Safety Sense is now standard on all trim levels.
