The Best Features of Toyota Hybrid Cars

The Best Features of Toyota Hybrid Cars

When Toyota introduced the first Prius to the world in 1997 as the world’s first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, it revolutionised the way we thought about environmentally-friendly motoring. Fast forward to today, and Toyota continues to lead the way in hybrid technology, with their status as hybrid pioneers shining an illuminating light towards a cleaner and greener future for the automotive industry.

From the Prius as a starting point, Toyota now has the widest range of hybrid vehicles available on sale in the market today. Toyota’s hybrid range now includes both compact and premium SUVs, family-friendly MPVs, and luxury sedans, with models such as the Yaris Cross Hybrid, Harrier Hybrid, Sienta Hybrid and Camry Hybrid just part of an extensive line-up to offer consumers the greatest variety of hybrid choices.



1. Class-leading Fuel Efficiency

All Toyota hybrid models are full, self-charging hybrids. Hence, they offer class-leading fuel efficiency, which helps to deliver great savings thanks to their low fuel consumption. In addition, Toyota hybrid models also attract a significant $15,000 rebate under the Vehicular Emissions Scheme (VES), being in the A2 band, giving you further savings and more money in your pocket.


2. Leading-edge Technology – Toyota Safety Sense (TSS)

Toyota’s latest hybrid models also now come with Toyota Safety Sense, which incorporates driver assistance safety features that truly set the benchmark in its class, and ensure that you are safe and protected while on the road. Some of these features include Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), which ensures you maintain a safe distance from the car in front, Lane Departure Alert (LDA), which warns the driver when they have unintentionally drifted out of lane, and Pre-Collision System (PCS), which can detect the possibility of an impending collision by applying the brake assistance system to slow down or stop the vehicle.


Today, a Toyota hybrid model represents more than just fuel savings and eco-friendliness. Here we take a look at the best features of some of Toyota’s hybrid cars, and why they are the perfect choice that fits right into your lifestyle.


1. Powerful yet Efficient Drivetrain

The Harrier comes with a 2.5-litre Dynamic Force Engine with Hybrid Synergy Drive, making it one of the world’s most thermal efficient engines in production today, with 41% thermal efficiency. This means that the Harrier Hybrid offers a truly powerful yet fuel-efficient drive.

2. Stylish Exterior Design

The Harrier’s premium positioning gives it a feel of a car from a class above. Its slim LED lights, raked windscreen and eyecatching rear tail-light bar is guaranteed to turn heads, and helps the Harrier Hybrid earn major style points.

3. Panoramic Roof with Electrochromatic Glass (Luxury Variant only)

The Harrier Hybrid features a unique panoramic roof with electro-chromatic glass, which lets in plenty of sunlight on sunny days if you desire, and darkens instantly at the touch of a button when you need some shade. It also has a cool frosted effect that adds on the style.

4. Digital Rear View Mirror (Luxury Variant only)

Available on the Luxury variant is a nifty digital rear view mirror that uses a rear mounted camera to show you what’s behind you, in crystal clear definition. This function is especially handy if your view out the rear windscreen is obstructed, and also helps widen your field of vision rearwards too.

1. Sporty Style

The latest Camry Hybrid ups the style ante, with its aerodynamic design that features a sporty bumper and sharplooking LED headlights with LED daytime running lights. On the Elegance variant, the sporty sensation is enhanced with its 18-inch aluminium rims, chrome dual exhaust tips, and boot lid spoiler.

2. Generous Room for Everything and Everyone 

The Camry Hybrid delivers class-leading space for both passengers and cargo. The spacious cabin offers generous legroom for occupants to stretch and relax, while the boot features an impressive 524 litres of cargo capacity, enough to accommodate everything you need daily and even a couple of golf bags for your weekend activities. 

3. Comfort and Convenience Features

The Camry Hybrid is packed with plenty of comfort and convenience features to make your drive that much more pleasant and relaxing. Ventilated front seats (Elegance variant only) help keep you cool on scorching hot days, while wireless charging for your mobile devices and Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto connectivity helps you stay connected while on the go.

1. Configurable Seating for 7 

The Sienta Hybrid is the perfect choice for the family, with seven seats that can accommodate you and your kids with ease. The easy-to-use lever allows for convenient access to the third row of seats, while the layout is also highly configurable, offering maximum versatility to cater to your family’s needs. Being the most powerful Cat A hybrid MPV in the market, this 7-seater car makes a great economical choice

2. Convenience and Privacy with Electric Sliding Doors and Window Shades

The Sienta Hybrid’s electric rear sliding doors open up at the push of a button, and offer easy and convenient access to a spacious and roomy cabin. The rear windows also come with shades (Elegance variant only) for maximum privacy, while also shielding your family from the harsh glare and warm temperatures outside.

3. Shift-by-Wire Gearshift (Elegance Variant only)

The Sienta Hybrid Elegance variant comes with a shift-by-wire gear shifting system, which engages driving modes electronically, making gear selection smoother and faster, and improving your overall driving experience. The drivetrain marks a major improvement from before, and when paired with the 1.5-litre Dynamic Force Engine and Hybrid system, the Sienta Hybrid now offers 16% more power and 18% more fuel efficiency from the previous generation.

The Yaris Cross Hybrid is the first compact Toyota SUV to be built on the Toyota New Generation Architecture (TNGA) platform, which promises to deliver greater stability, agility and visibility. Its compact size and dimensions means that it is easy to drive and park, making it ideal for urban environments.

2. Generous Boot Space

The Yaris Cross Hybrid offers 390 litres of boot space with the seats up, which is the biggest in its class. The rear seats can also fold down, either fully flat for maximum carrying capacity, 60:40 split for maximum versatility, or 40:20:40 to accommodate longer items while still offering space for rear passengers.

3. Head-up Display (Excite Variant only)

The Excite variant of the Yaris Cross Hybrid comes equipped with a heads-up display that showcases all the vital driving information like the vehicle speed, hybrid status and Toyota Safety Sense features, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road while staying up to date with the relevant info.
