Plenty of room and great fuel economy
July 24, 2018
We frequently travel, usually short distances, with our dog... 65 pounds of muscle and energy. We are all comfortable, with good leg, head, and shoulder room in the front seats, and the dog in the second row.
There is plenty of storage room and a wide and easy to open and close rear hatch that handles grocery shopping with ease, and has managed some fairly large home improvement items.
I do drive at or slightly slower than the speed limit, and the car gives between 46-51 miles per gallon of fuel versus the EPA reported 39.
Having driven mostly fast cars with manual transmissions, the proximity key fob, keyless ignition, and CVT took some getting used to, but nothing significant. The sensors are even smart enough to refuse to lock the vehicle with the key fob inside - pretty cool that Toyota thought of that.
