Best Cars to Give as Gifts this Holiday Season

The holiday season is among us. Pumpkin spice lattes are a thing of the past and peppermint mochas have taken their place. The malls are decked out with boughs of holly, calling all shoppers to begin their annual tradition. It's that time of the year to finalize that one perfect gift for a special someone in your life. At this moment, some of you have decided on an especially big surprise for your spouse, parent, son, daughter, or cherished companion - a new car.

This is a bigger decision than buying one for yourself. A car says a lot about someone, and by gifting one, you show that you know them, perhaps better than they know themselves. Today, Westminster Toyota hopes to help you match their unique personality and lifestyle with a vehicle best suited for them. With that decision out of the way, all you'll need is to pick out a BIG red bow!

5 Top Toyota Vehicles that Make Perfect Presents

Toyota Avalon - Spoil Those that Appreciate a Touch of Class

If you're thinking of something upscale that won't break the bank, the Avalon is it. Who is the luxury car perfect for? If your spouse is suffering from empty nest syndrome, the Avalon will cheer them right up. The fully independent suspension, aerodynamic efficiency, and dynamic radar cruise control will allow them to enjoy their freedom and hit the road. Does high-fashion play a big part in the life of your special someone? With sculpted lines, a bold grille, available 18-inch alloy wheels, and stylish LED headlights, the Avalon is a tailor-made fit. Do they jam to Glenn Frey's "You Belong to the City" while cruising the local strip? Thanks to the spacious cabin, interior ambient lighting, and JBL audio system with eleven speakers, the Avalon is an urbanite dream. From young professionals to those in their golden years, this car has been modeled for anyone that appreciates the finer things in life. Put a bow around the new Avalon this holiday season.

Toyota Prius - Impress the Eco Conscious

Who wants a new Prius this Christmas? That's an easy one. There's someone in your family who holds the environment near their heart. This allows them to wear that allegiance on their sleeve, when on the road and when parked and plugged-in. Packaged in a new sleek shape, with sculpted character lines, 17-inch alloy wheels and lit up with dynamic LED lighting, the Prius has surpassed its somewhat nerdy image to become downright fashionable. But the new aesthetic has not come at the expense of the planet. The 2017 53 mpg (city) Prius comes with three driving modes. ECO maximizes fuel economy, EV drives solely on battery power for up to one-half mile, and Power Mode increases throttle response. All modes serve to increase efficiency while considering the driver's carbon footprint. Help them make the world a better place, starting this holiday season, by putting them in a Prius.

Toyota 86 - Get it First for Those that Like to Get There First

Your loved one is all about firsts. They stay on top of the newest trends. They are the first to have the new smartphone, tablet, TV, and gaming system.

Keep them ahead of the curve this season with a 2017 Toyota 86.

Toyota Corolla IM - Let the Practical Show Their Wild Side

You are likely rewarding someone with a new car this season because they have been by your side through thick and thin. They have provided a practical shoulder to lean on through trying times, but have been there through the fun and wild times too. Sounds a lot like the new Corolla IM. Borrowing the unapologetic attitude of the Scion IM (retired last year) and merging it with the most dependable and best selling car in the world, this new imagining of the Corolla is unmatched in its class because that class cannot be defined. This dazzling and sporty hatchback has a Sport Mode, a sport-tuned MacPherson strut front suspension, and a double-wishbone rear suspension that lets it drive and handle like a race car. But don't worry. When that wild side comes out, the new and improved Toyota Safety Sense C with Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams and a full suite of safety features will keep them grounded while rounding corners. Make a BIG impression by giving them the IM.

Toyota Yaris - Start them Off with the Right Wheels

The holiday season marks the perfect time to get your new young driver a new car. Imagine their surprise when they unwrap the hottest sporty hatchback on the market! Starting at just $16,960 (CAD) the new Yaris is an exquisite fit for the young and the restless, and your pocketbook. The newly available two-toned exterior (on the 2016) allows your budding driver to express their personality, while the 60/40 split rear seat provides the versatility they need. At 37 mpg highway and 30 mpg city, they'll get used to financial independence. The Sport-tuned front suspension on the SE delivers the spirited handling they crave while the Star Safety System with nine airbags, whiplash-injury lessening seats, and additional suite of six active safety features will give you peace of mind. Blow their minds this Yuletide, with a Yaris.
