The 10 Most Reliable Vehicles You Can Buy

Perhaps one of the most common challenges buyers in the current marketplace face when trying to choose a new vehicle is determining which vehicles offer the best reliability on the marketplace. There are new models entering the marketplace regularly and our team at 1000 Islands Toyota has decades of experience helping clients choose from the latest options.

In this new post, our auto dealership team in Brockville showcase the 10 most reliable vehicles you can buy, as recommended by a recent consumer-focused publication.

1. Lexus GX

Now sharing its body-on-frame architecture with the highly-rated Toyota 4Runner, the Lexus GX has been widely praised as one of the top-performing vehicles in the 2018 marketplace. The vehicle includes the Lexus Technology Package, which boosts reliability by bundling Lexus’s safety and handling systems. The SUV is highly intuitive and performs smoothly across the road conditions.

2. Toyota Prius Prime

Capable of traveling 35KM on battery power alone, the Toyota Prius Prime represents an evolution in vehicle manufacturing. The car can now reach 135 km/h without the use of the onboard gasoline engine, which has 40% thermal efficiency – the highest of any internal combustion engine. The vehicle has a total range of 1035KM per charge, with a full charge only taking 2 hours and 10 minutes with a 240-volt power source.

3. Mazda MX-5 Miata

Upgraded with a 181-horsepower 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine this year, the Mazda MX-5 Miata Roadster is considered at its most reliable as a six-speed manual vehicle. However, the sports car is now available as a six-speed automatic and continues to showcase its reliability in testing. Few sports vehicles match the Mazda-MX-5 Miata in terms of longevity and performance.

4. Toyota Prius

Recommended by AJAC (Automobile Journalists of Canada) as the 2017 green car of the year, the Toyota Prius is available in three distinct trim levels to ensure the ideal appeal for a range of drivers. The vehicle features a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and two motors/generators that send power directly through an electronically controlled continually variable transmission. The original Toyota Prius has a total output of 121 horsepower and 105LB per ft of torque. Fuel efficiency is another area in which the Toyota Prius stands out for its performance and reliability. The vehicle offers fuel efficiency of 4.4L/100KM city driving and 4.6L/100LM for highway driving.

5. Honda Fit

Featuring a sharp new look for its 2018 version, the Honda Fit has experienced a renaissance across the marketplace and is now one of the more popular models within the Honda selection. The vehicle is known for its 1.5L DOHC four-cylinder engine and a choice of either six-speed manual or continuously variable transmissions. The Honda Fit provides 130 horsepower along with 114LB per ft for torque. Many buyers are also now paying close attention to the vehicle for its fuel efficiency. The Honda Fit is rated for 8.5L per 100KM of city driving and 6.6L per 100KM of highway driving. It’s one of the top models for the efficiency-focused driver.

6. Toyota Corolla

Powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that offers 132 horsepower, the Toyota Corolla can be supplied with a variable transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. Toyota has recently enhanced the line-up for the model in Canada by redesigning the hatchback model. With its new sleek appeal, the 2018 Toyota Corolla has generated significant interest throughout the marketplace and combines renowned reliability with greater levels of performance.

7. Lexus NX

Smaller than the popular RX, the Lexus NX packs a similar punch in terms of raw power. There are two distinct versions for Lexus drivers to review – the 300 and the 300h. Within the 300 is the two-liter Atkinson cycle, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which produces 235 horsepower. The engine is connected to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission that allows for a smoother driving experience and limited component wear over time. The 300h model combines the Lexus Hybrid Drive with the 2.5L Atkinson-cycle engine, delivering 194 horsepower and 152lbs per ft. of torque. The robust vehicle supports power and dynamic performance in one streamlined model.

8. Toyota Prius C

Powered by a 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine, the Toyota Prius C puts out 78 horsepower with 125ft of torque. One of the leading reasons so many buyers are now choosing the Toyota Prius line and the Toyota Prius C is the vehicle’s 4.9L/100KM fuel efficiency in the city and 5.5/100KM on the highway.

9. Kia Sedona

For optimum fuel efficiency in a minivan, the Kia Sedona is considered the ideal vehicle within the marketplace. The Sedona is available in both seven and eight passenger models and each of the models features a 3.3Liter V6 engine with 276 horsepower. The vehicle’s engine is tuned for maximum torque and paired directly with a six-speed sportmatic transmission for exceptional handling and performance across all terrains.

10. Toyota Highlander

Drivers seeking a spacious vehicle that handles each element of their daily commute, as well as offers opportunities for adventure, might consider the Toyota Highlander. The vehicle is designed to offer room for up to 8 within the cabin and offers the choice of front or all-wheel drive. Each of the Toyota Highlander trims feature an advanced safety system built to protect all areas of the vehicle. The power within the Highlander is also immense. The vehicle features a 295-horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine with an automatic 8-speed transmission. There’s also the hybrid model, which features a 3.5L V6 engine with an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission.
