Kudos to being a entrepreneur. It takes guts to venture out on your own in the business world. Of course, the key to success is to choose the right people, places, and things to support your enterprise, whatever it may be. One element that often gets overlooked is your choice in vehicle. A car makes a statement about you and helps to define your personal brand while at the same serving a function to support your business, whether it is used to deliver products, transport equipment and/or people, or attend several meetings all over town.
As a proud supported of the entrepreneurial spirit, we have compiled our picks of cars that will help you be your own boss.
5 Top 2018 Toyota Vehicles to Suit Each Type of Entrepreneur
Toyota Avalon - When Image is Everything
For many entrepreneurs with CEO aspirations image is everything. You know that showing up in the right vehicle can make or break a deal, even if it's because it provides you with the confidence you need to close. At the same time, you don't want to empty your business account for a luxury vehicle. Toyota knows this, which is a big part of why the Avalon is on the market.
Everything on the surface is on point, with sculpted lines, powerful curves, and a truly stunning profile, the Avalon will impress the most pretentious of client prospects, even if they insist on meeting at the local yacht club. Power adjustable heated perforated leather-trimmed seats and the black wood-grain-style interior trim will transport you into an upscale corner office while on the road, giving you the extra boost of self-assurance to take your business to the next level.
With an investment in your future that starts at just $42,165, the 2018 Avalon will elevate your game without setting back your capital. View more on the 2018 Toyota Avalon.
Toyota Prius - For Today's Sustainable Business Owner
Sustainable practices aren't just good for the environment and the health of the population, they are great for business. Consciousness equals big bucks in 2018, as B2C AND B2B consumers look for eco-friendly businesses to satisfy their needs. In addition, there are government grants and funding in place for entrepreneurs who operate green enterprises. As one of them, you need to make sure your vehicle falls in line, and so it makes perfect sense that the Prius finds its way into your parking spot.
The new 2018 Prius c design provides a lower center of gravity with a 9.6 meter turning circle that allows more responsive handling and maneuverability, a big plus for when you're zipping between business errands and meetings in your urban oasis. You'll be able to keep a close eye on your eco-friendly mandate, with a Multi-Information Display w/ECO Monitor that helps you optimize driving and fuel economy in real time with a few fingertip taps. The vehicle's EV Mode enables electric driving for up to one km (when driving below 40 km/hr) and the updated ECO Mode adjusts both climate control and throttle to help improve fuel economy. The hybrid's combined fuel efficiency rating is 5.1 L/100 km, a feature that will help you realize a remarkable ROI when you compared what your fuel expenditure would be if you opted for any other vehicle in its class.

Toyota 4Runner - For the Sleeves Rolled Up Type
Not all entrepreneurs have aspirations of sitting in a cushy boardroom. Your business activities may have you visiting construction sites, navigating tough terrain, or taking cross province or country road trips through all sorts of weather. You're "business casual" with your sleeves rolled up at all times, and don't mind getting your hands dirty, especially when loading up a haul of equipment and materials. At the same time, you can't conduct business in a pickup, which is why you need a tough-as-nails SUV as your on-road companion.
Available Multi-terrain Select, Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, and Crawl Control provide everything you need to get where you need to go, while the sliding rear cargo deck, power rear glass, and 40/20/40 fold flat second row seats that accommodate up to 88 cubic feet of cargo allow you load up everything that helps you make a buck, without needing a truck.

For you, the new Yaris is the perfect fit.
For one, it looks the part, with a sleek new design and available LED Daytime Running Lights that feature an accent light bar to brighten the scene when doing coffee runs after working online through the wee hours of the night.
