Your New England Toyota Dealer has generously donated the vehicle named as the Best Car to Buy for 2012 by, the all-new Toyota Prius v.

The much acclaimed 2012 Toyota Prius v hybrid delivers the highest combined fuel efficiency of any SUV, crossover utility vehicle or wagon with its EPA-estimated 42-mpg combined rating.

But great fuel efficiency isn’t the whole story. The Prius v boasts very low ownership costs. In fact, has ranked Prius v “2012 Best Overall Value of the Year” because owning it could save you $6,990 in five-year ownership costs.

 The comfortable, 5-passenger Toyota Prius v doesn’t just save you money; it delivers amazing performance while producing 66% fewer smog-forming emissions than the average new vehicle. This Prius v features the Star Safety System with seven airbags and contains 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space.
