If $1,225 is all that's been holding you back from buying a new Prius, August could be your month. Toyota announced today a new expanded line-up for the 2008 Prius, and the new standard model has a low MSRP. Toyota suggests that the 2008 Prius versions sell for between $20,950 (the standard model) to $23,220 for the Touring model.


While Toyota says the total Prius average MSRP increases by $150 (0.7 percent), the low-end 2008 Prius is quite a bit cheaper ($1,225, to be exact) than the lowest-priced 2007 version.The MSRP for the 2007 Prius is $22,175 - $23,070.

You can find the 2008 Prius in dealerships in August. Toyota also announced prices for the 2008 Avalon, Yaris, RAV4, FJ Cruiser, 4Runner, Tacoma and Sienna.

See 2 threads down :)

I was reading an article about the 600lh lexus...20 mpg average. When they start diluting the hybrid theme, they lose points....although their sales and public image says otherwise, I think it also has to do with Toyota's distancing themselves from the big 3.

1225 is a lot of money for most people. The fake 0% apr loans that the big 3 had last summer got lots of people in the showrooms (I say fake cause most people ddidn't qualify for the 0%), this should give sales a small boost.

When the next gen of prius comes out, I will consider it. In all fairness, it's a good car but I am sticking with what I got for now.

prius buyers buy the car out of image, not to save money.

diesel buyers buy the car for work or to save money.

thats the difference, IMO
