2017 Prius Reviews & Information

 

 

Take everyone by surprise. The 2017 Prius is hitting streets with a daring, edgy look that continues to set trends. Its sleek shape, sculpted character lines and dynamic LED lighting attract all the right attention. An inviting interior, with soft-touch materials and advanced technology, gives everyone plenty of room to stretch out and get comfy. And when the roads get twisty, the double-wishbone rear suspension and athletic stance ensure that this hybrid is always up for some fun. Best of all, it all comes in a package with an available EPA estimate of up to 58 mpg city. Efficiency never looked so good.

Let’s go places.

Prius helps you stay connected with the available Entune™ Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation3 and App Suite.4 With an available 7-in. high-resolution touch-screen with split-screen display, you can take control of your playlist, find movie tickets and make restaurant reservations, get turn-by-turn directions and more.The available illuminated entry welcomes you each time you get inside. And with the standard Smart Key System,5 you can easily lock and unlock the driver’s-side door by touching the door handle and start Prius with just the push of a button.

Came to Madison to buy a Prius because Smart Motors is easy to deal with. Do not feel like you are getting taken advantage of. All employees are friendly and helpful. Todd Wersland is friendly, informative, and non-pressuring.

Everyone we have worked with here has been excellent. Clint has sold other cars to our family, which is what brought us in! Made the experience easy..... Dana explained all the warranty information and put it in terms I could understand. Sarah was super energized and knowledgeable.

We found a car we liked online, used the website to schedule a test drive, and got one right away with no pressure. After telling the sales person I wanted to go home to thing about it, he texted me his card, and thanked me. And the buying experience was again no pressure. Showed me some numbers and asked if I was interested. Gave me a quote for my old vehicle for a trade in, and explained the options he had for rebates and financing. Everyone appeared to be having fun, and were very social and they all acknowledged me. Felt like I was one of the employees. They have a great waiting area with lots of food and drink and tv's. Highly recommend everyone look here first.

Excellent

New Corolla SE

Chad Nettesheim

It is still early in the process, but I am a very happy customer. I choose to lease a new Corolla. I feel like I am driving a space ship. The technology is amazing and I am expecting the traditional reliability of a Corolla as well. Although having the Warranty and Maintenance included is also a great piece of mind. Chad was awesome in the sales process. Most everything was done over the phone and online so my time in the dealership signing papers and learning the features on the car was very short. There are 68 miles on the car I am leasing. And I am having so much fun. Thanks!

Enjoyed Our Entire Experience
