You can easily navigate rough terrain, as the AWD hybrids ensure that a secondary electric engine powers the rear wheels. The all-wheel drive transmission system ensures all four wheels have equal power, giving you a better defence against icy roads.

 

Temperature Resistant Hybrid Engine

 

These Toyota models seamlessly and automatically switch between gas and electric power, depending on what fits the conditions best. You don’t need to worry while driving, as the hybrid engines are designed to withstand extreme temperatures. In the worst case, you might need to idle your car for a bit to warm up the engine, but you’re all set for the road afterward.
