Toyota Prius tops ConsumerGuide Automotive 2013 Best Buy Awards

ConsumerGuide Automotive AwardsConsumerGuide Automotive Best Buy Awards

For the first time ever ConsumerGuide Automotive has included an Editor's Choice Best Buy Award to represent the pinnacle in value, features, and driving experience. The recipient of this award is the entire line of 2013 Toyota Prius vehicles.

For the 2013 awards the editors raised the criteria for earning a Best Buy classification. They also eliminated the Recommended accolade to create a shorter, more prestigious list. Nearly 200,000 miles are driven each year by ConsumerGuide Automotive's editorial team carefully evaluating every aspect of hundreds of available vehicles to determine the best driving experiences in nearly every driving situation.
