We’re also here to tell you more about these unique drive time solutions so you can get shopping. Check out these 5 perks to driving compact cars!

Is a compact car the right ride for you?

Perk #1: Fuel efficiency

Compact cars are renowned for their fuel efficiency. Since they’re smaller than your average sedan, their engines make better work when it comes to fuel economy and saving you gas. For example, the N Charlotte Toyota Corolla and Corolla iM both use an efficient 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that pushes their fuel efficiency to the roof – the Corolla gets 28/36 mpg and the iM gets 27/35 mpg.

Perk #2: Safety

A lot of people assume that smaller cars can’t possibly be as safe as getting behind the wheel of something big. That’s definitely not the case when it comes to our N Charlotte Toyotas! All of them are decked out with the latest and greatest safety technology and features thanks to Toyota’s dedication to safety research and development. You’ll find features like Toyota Safety Sense P, Advanced Airbag Systems, backup cameras, parking assist, and more woven into the design.

Perk #3: Maneuverability

Worried about performance taking a turn for the worse if you climb behind the wheel of a compact car? You have no reason to be – these cars are as performance-driven as their peers. Our new Toyotas are efficient, sporty, and easily maneuverable, so you’re ready to hit the road no matter what type of driving situation you’re in.

Perk #4: Style

Sporty style is where it’s at when it comes to our compact options at Toyota of N Charlotte! You’ll find features like rear spoilers, alloy wheels, LED lighting, sport fabric and SofTex interiors, and a multitude of eye-catching paint colors up for grabs when you get behind the wheel. Plus, our cars come in a multitude of designs including coupes, hatchbacks, and sedans to give you plenty of options.

Perk #5: Technology

Stay connected even from behind the wheel of an affordable compact Toyota! These cars boast features like Bluetooth wireless streaming, the Entune app suite, navigation, backup cameras, HD weather and traffic, iPod connectivity, Pandora Radio, and more. No matter where life takes you, you can stay connected to what matters!
