The Toyota Prius c is a smaller subcompact version of the popular Prius mid-size hybrid car, featuring a hybrid powertrain embedded in a smaller, more economic-sized vehicle. Car transport for a Prius c is the same as a regular-sized Prius, though, so there’s no worries about any major differences there. It was introduced in 2011 and has become one of Toyota’s big sellers, selling almost 84,000 units as of April 2012, almost a third of all Prius family sales. This helpful car transport article will discuss the current options available on the 2012 Toyota Prius c, their key features, and what factors will affect your overall car transport cost for shipping your own.
The Prius c currently comes in four models, the Prius c One, Prius c Two, Prius c Three, and Prius c Four. The Two, Three and Four models each feature certain key features mentioned in the Prius c One, so most features for the Two, Three and Four are replacements or additions to features already covered. The Prius c One features a hybrid synergy drive with EV/ECO drive modes, automatic climate control, 3.5-inch TFT Multi-Information Display system with customizable settings, daytime-running lights with on/off feature, AM/FM CD player with Bluetooth compatibility, USB ports with iPod connectivity, projector-beam halogen headlamps and rear-combination lamps with LED stop lamps. The Prius c Two features a 60/40 split-fold rear seat with adjustable headrests, cargo area tonneau cover and cruise control. The Prius c Three features a Smart-Key system on the front doors and the rear liftgate, an available power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade, a Touch Tracer Display and Display Audio with navigation. The Prius c Four features 15-inch alloy 8-spoke wheels, color-keyed/powered/heated outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, integrated fog lamps, Display Audio with navigation and SofTex-trimmed front leather seats.
The Prius c is a member of the Prius family, which means that really what one Prius experiences in terms of car transport, every Prius will experience roughly the same thing. Most car transport companies will charge more for heavier or larger vehicles, but the Prius c is a subcompact so it won’t be subjected to such fees and price hikes. The most important aspect of your car transport quote will be the distance between your pickup and delivery cities; another major one is their locations. Car transport companies like to travel along popular interstate highways, preferably between major metropolitan areas. Car transport to or from cities that are out of the way or otherwise difficult to get to or from will be more expensive to ship to or from, so if you need car transport on a budget your best bet would be to speak to a live car transport representative about ways you can save a bit of money.
