2019 Toyota Corolla GR Sport
The introduction of the Toyota Corolla GR Sport days before its live debut at the Geneva International Motor Show gives us a first glimpse of what the hypothetical (and probable) Corolla GRMN might be.
The Toyota Corolla GR Sport is the closest in execution to semi-sports hatches like the Ford Focus ST-Line, the Hyundai i30 N-Line, and the Renault Megane GT-Line. As such, the Toyota Corolla GR Sport features a comprehensive set of sporty style additions without any performance upgrades. The Gazoo Racing Sport pack is available for both the base engine and top-trim.
The first semi-hot Toyota hatchback in decades came only weeks after Gazoo Racing trickled out the stunning new Supra. It delivers on the promise Aikido Toyoda, Toyota CEO, gave two years ago - “no more boring cars.” Moreover, with the new Toyota RAV4 TRD, the new Toyota GR Supra, the incredible Toyota Yaris GR, and the announcement of the new Toyota GT86, we live in a time when the world’s favorite manufacturer is again in the business of awesome cars.
2019 Toyota Corolla Trek
With almost 50 million units sold since it was first introduced in 1966, the Toyota Corolla is, without question, the best-selling car in the history of the auto industry. Even if the world is populated by Corollas, Toyota has found a way to continuously reinvent the model in ways that make it popular. It comes as no surprise then that we’re going to see another reinvented version of the Corolla called the Corolla Trek at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Based on the Touring Sports wagon body of Toyota’s best-selling model, the Corolla Trek is essentially a raised version of the wagon that’s not a lot different from the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. The recent trend of automakers raising their wagons and hatchbacks in the name of giving them crossover-like appeal has now taken over Toyota. We’ll see what that’s about when the Toyota Corolla debuts in Geneva next month.
Toyota’s 2019 Super Bowl Commercial Features Antoinette “Toni” Harris
Toyota is no stranger to dropping a truckload of marketing dollars to gain visibility at the Super Bowl. This year is no different as the automaker puts the spotlight on its new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid (RAV4 HV) with the help of female football player Antoinette “Toni” Harris. As if the world isn’t getting any football with the Super Bowl already, Harris’ involvement in Toyota’s RAV4 HV commercial could shine the spotlight on both the SUV and her remarkable journey to become the first woman to receive a college football scholarship offer for a non-kicking position. The 60-second commercial will run at the end of the second quarter of Super Bowl LIII, just before the halftime show.
2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid
Toyota just introduced a brand-new generation for the Corolla this year, with both a head-turning hatchback and a smart sedan making the body style lineup. Now, Toyota is adding yet another model with a new hybrid variant, ushering in an even-greener option for the compact four-door segment. Standout features for the 2020 Toyota Corolla hybrid include a comfortable ride, loads of technology and features, and as an added bonus, upwards of 52 mpg combined thanks to the drivetrain that’s borrowed from the Toyota Prius.
Toyota has pulled the wraps off its refreshed Prius at the 2018 LA auto show which brings a more toned down appearance and optional all-wheel drive to the table. It isn’t any significantly more efficient or any faster, but its less aggressive styling will be a pleasing comeback for some, while the new all-wheel drive is apparently going to be really popular.
Projected sales for the Prius AWD-e say up to 25 percent of all cars sold will have the option, despite the fact that it does have a small negative impact on overall efficiency - the main reason you went for a Prius in the first place. The most frugal Prius, the L Eco trim, can still hit a claimed 56 mpg combined.
Aside from the subtle restyling and addition of all-wheel drive, the 2019 Toyota Prius also gets interior updates, extra tech, and a simplified trim structure to help buyers and dealers alike understand the range better.
The 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Gives You Prius Fuel Economy Without the Weird Hatchback Design
Expectedly, Toyota revealed a hybrid version of their latest (and quite handsome) 2020 Corolla. The 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid takes the talents of the Prius and packs them in a far more alluring package. In short, the 1.8-liter four-banger is complemented by two electric motors for a combined output of 121 horsepower. Not exactly the most powerful thing out there, but it will get 50 mpg combined. Just like the latest Prius AWD-e.
Toyota Finally Offers the Prius with AWD in the U.S.
Toyota just unveiled an all-wheel drive Prius for the North American market. Not only that, the new Prius looks a tad finer (actually, less bizarre than before) and gives us the AWD technology that dispenses with the usual torque converters and driveshafts. The Toyota Prius AWD-e actually introduces us to an extra electric motor rigged to the rear wheels. It will apply power as needed up to 6 mph when accelerating and up to 43 mph when the computer senses that additional torque is needed (when the front wheels slip basically).
The Toyota Corolla Hybrid Looks Sporty and Delivers 50 MPG
In less than a month after launching the next-gen Corolla, Toyota follows it up by launching a new hybrid version of the popular sedan at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new Corolla Hybrid will be Prius-derived powertrain and is expected to arrive in showrooms in the second quarter of 2019.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Is The Way Forward For The Compact Crossover Segment
We’ve said it countless times before, but we’ll say it again - the compact crossover segment is ridiculously popular right now. However, much of this segment growth can be attributed to low fuel prices, and when gas gets more expensive (not if, but when), customer demands could shift dramatically to hybrids. However, by the looks of it, Toyota doesn’t have much to worry about, and it’s all thanks to the 2019 RAV4.
Add a Vulcan 20-mm Cannon from an F-16 Fight Jet to a Prius and the Cool Factor Skyrockets Toyota
You expect such insanity from Magneto, Joker, Doctor Doom, or Lex Luthor. They may be fictional characters, but here’s one crazy dude who came up with an idea to turn an environment-friendly Toyota Prius into a pee-when-you-see, one-car cavalry. Civilian cars have been made into dogs of war before, but this time, Black Rifle Coffee Company, a coffee producer, has incorporated an M61 Vulcan rotary cannon on a humble Toyota Prius, and the result is blowing our mind!
2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid Announces It’s Ready for Europe at 2018 Paris Motor Show
Toyota hasn’t offered the Camry sedan in Europe for well over 10 years, relying on the Avensis as its top three-box car for the Old Continent. However, at this year’s edition of the Paris motor show, Toyota brought the new eighth-generation model, which it intends on selling here again in the near future.
Best Used 2016 SUV for Fuel Economy
The market trend is quickly shifting from sedans to crossovers and SUVs. However, SUVs have two major cons when compared to their segment counterparts - high retail price and poor fuel economy. Even though they are a practical choice thanks to additional cabin and cargo space, it’s a little difficult for everyone to afford an SUV. So why not go for a used SUV instead? You don’t take the depreciation hit that first owner does, and since SUVs are built to last a lifetime, you can get an almost-new SUV at half the original price.
Now that we’ve planted this seed in your head, let’s have a look at the best used SUVs from 2016 with high fuel efficiency.
