Toyota enjoys one of the most award-winning reputations in the market, thanks to vehicles like the Corolla, Camry, and Rav4, which demonstrate increased reliability year after year. In short, all of this goes to show that the brand has built a solid reputation over the years. However, don't think for a moment that I attribute the immense popularity solely to the brand's success. The Japanese manufacturer's SUV offers compelling arguments and is a ...
I have an idea! It's clear that the sedan market is declining, and most major players have exited the scene. Why not offer a new car in this segment? I would have liked to be a fly on the wall to hear the conversation that took place among the top executives of the brand when it came time to put the Crown on the table. It takes audacity and perhaps a bit of madness as well to propose a new car when SUVs are clearly dominating. Moreover, the Crown ...
Many Toyota vehicles have left their mark on history, and the Venza is no exception. The first generation of the model is infamous for being one of the most stolen vehicles of its time. Aside from its name, the old and the new Venza have nothing in common, but reliability and versatility are among the many factors that have helped the Venza establish a solid reputation. The 2024 model may be quite different, but it certainly lives up to its reputation, ...
Whether we like it or not, the Toyota Prius is one of the most iconic cars of the modern era in the automotive industry. It\'s not a car that stood out for its sportiness, elegance, or any other flashy characteristics. What we will remember most about the Prius in 30, 50, or even 100 years is how boldly and technologically advanced it was as a car. Indeed, the Japanese manufacturer once again proves that the Prius still has its place in the market ...
I have nothing against versatility and vehicles that touch multiple segments at once. It\'s simply amazing that you can get an SUV capable of towing a trailer, dusting off performance models on the drag strip while carrying up to 7 passengers. However, this phenomenon has had the effect of eliminating the majority of models with a specific purpose. Fortunately, there is the Toyota Supra, a two-door hardtop car with a powerful front engine. It is undoubtedly ...
Toyota is one of the most recognized brands globally, and everyone knows the Corolla. At the same time, it\'s the best-selling car of all time. Ironically, the brand offers other much less known models, such as the Mirai, a car that no one really talks about. Yet, this sedan may represent the future of the automotive industry.   The Toyota Mirai has the unique feature of being a fuel cell vehicle. To summarize, hydrogen is used to create electricity ...
While the majority of car manufacturers have turned their backs on large sedans, Toyota presents us with the Crown, which replaces the Avalon in this segment. This new model doesn\'t start with conventional foundations, featuring a design more akin to a multi-segment utility vehicle than a large sedan. It offers us a sumptuous and ultramodern interior, not to mention its cutting-edge technology under the hood.   Although the Crown is new in ...
  The Toyota Corolla GR is back on the market in 2024 after experiencing tremendous success since its launch. Several new features are added to the lineup, including a new special Circuit edition full of vibrant colors.   Toyota takes advantage of the summer to unveil the three hottest cars of the year, the Supra GR, the 86 GR, and the Corolla GR in their latest livery.   The big surprise this year is the return of the Circuit ...
It is not a certainty or even a promise, but Toyota recently mentioned that the Land Cruiser could make a comeback in North America.   In a recent interview with Motortrend magazine, a senior executive of the brand indicated that the Land Cruiser could return to the continent in the future. It should be noted that the model has not been part of the North American range of the Japanese manufacturer since its last complete redesign in 2021. As ...
It is not uncommon for car manufacturers to produce something other than cars, but Toyota has certainly surprised many with its latest project. It took them over three years to develop a mobile toilet specifically designed for people in wheelchairs.   In 2019, the Japanese automaker designed its first mobile toilet. It was used at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.   The initial prototype measured 5.3 meters long, 2.5 meters ...
The arrival of Koji Sato, the new CEO of Toyota, has completely disrupted the plans of the brand regarding the GR division. Originally, this sporty designation was supposed to be limited to a few models only. However, the Toyota executive has other plans for Gazoo Racing.   Currently, the GR range extends to four models. There\'s the Supra, the 86, the Corolla, and the Yaris. Unfortunately, the latter has not been offered in our market.   Imagine ...
After months of rumors and information being revealed bit by bit, Toyota finally presents the Tacoma 2024. For this new generation, the concept of the Japanese manufacturer\'s truck has been completely revamped, offering several mechanical innovations. New configurations with exceptional off-road capabilities have also been added to the Toyota Tacoma 2024 lineup.   Let\'s face it, the Toyota Tacoma has always been the benchmark in the midsize ...
The performance division of the Japanese automaker has been experiencing tremendous success in recent years, and its new CEO, Koji Sato, intends to capitalize on this wave of popularity by expanding the range even further.   Apart from the Yaris GR, which is not available in Canada, the Corolla, 86, and Supra are currently the only three cars benefiting from the Gazoo Racing treatment. For Akio Toyoda, the former head of the brand who is now ...
While the Toyota Corolla Cross is already a hit on the Canadian market, we are eagerly awaiting its hybrid version, which is expected to arrive in dealerships this summer. In the meantime, the Japanese automaker has decided to reveal more about its small hybrid SUV, including its price range.   • A total power output of 196 horsepower • Average fuel consumption of 5.6L/100km • Two versions available: SE and XSE   For the ...
While Toyota remains tight-lipped about the new-generation Tacoma, the rumor mill is in full swing. While we shouldn\'t expect an extreme transformation in terms of aesthetics, the new Tacoma\'s mechanical offerings are another story.   Unsurprisingly, the Toyota Tacoma 2024 is expected to look a lot like the Tundra and Sequoia, with well-defined geometric shapes resembling a life-size toy. Its silhouette and overall look shouldn\'t change ...
Toyota recently held a press conference in Japan to discuss its global electrification plan. We learned that the Japanese automaker plans to launch ten new electric models on the international market by 2026. However, Toyota also mentioned a new three-row electric SUV for North America by 2025.   Although it\'s a rumor, this new SUV is believed to be based on the bZ5X concept presented in 2021. In any case, the vehicle will be built and assembled ...
If you have been in the market for a brand new electric car very recently, you have probably noticed that the average waiting time is around a year and a half, which is kind of crazy. In the meanwhile, used car and gas prices haven\'t stopped climbing. At this point, you are probably thinking about getting a new model that is not out yet since you have to wait anyway. The Toyota Bz4X seems to be a great option since the brand is reputed for its reliability ...
Toyota recently unveiled its new GR family member in the form of the most powerful Corolla ever made. This latest alteration of the world\'s best-selling car comes with lots of upgrades in true sports car fashion, and it\'s greeted with a radical bodywork change.    First thing first, let\'s talk about the Corolla GR motor, which is a masterpiece in engineering, in my opinion. The Japanese sports car is powered by a 1.6 L 3-cylinder Turbo ...
  Regardless of what the purist and long-term fan base of the Toyota Supra are saying about the latest model, the new Toyota/BMW Supra is a great car. Yes, in case you didn\'t know, the Japanese sports car share numerous parts with the BMW Z4. Of course, people are joking about it all the time, but at the end of the day, they\'re talking about it, and that\'s the only thing that matters. The only thing I can say is get over it because it is ...
  Depending on where you live in the world, Honda and Toyota are certainly among the most popular brand in your country. The two Japanese manufacturers are constantly fighting for the title of the best-selling vehicle in each category. Here in Canada, the best-selling vehicle is, in fact, the Ford F-150. Yes, it is like that here and perhaps in the United States of America. However, you find several Honda and Toyota models among Canada\'s top ...
It\'s not a coincidence if these three Japanese manufacturers are mentioned together in this title. Toyota and Subaru worked on many projects together, such as the GR86 and the BRZ, but their latest common project is the bZ4X and the Solterra, which are two electric vehicles interestingly. Mazda and Toyota also worked together on some projects, so it makes total sense that they go in the same direction. Unlike most manufacturers, Subaru, Mazda, and ...
A Sequoia tree can live for several hundred years, and it’s one of the largest trees in the world if it isn’t the largest. Interestingly, I feel like it’s been at least a century since the last time the Sequoia got updated, even if it was 2008. Well, 2008 was a long time ago in the automobile industry. In 2008, many cars still had a cassette player, manual windows, and not so powerful V-8’s, and I will let you imagine the rest. ...
Toyota just released their all-new 2022 Tundra, and this is already a fan favorite, but that’s not just it. As you know, Toyota is competing in many motorsports events, including NASCAR trucks, and the new Tundra is ready to make its debut in this racing series.    So, let me present you the all-new 2022 NASCAR Toyota Tundra TRD PRO. From the front, it looks pretty much like the regular production version, but in fact, this racing ...
