Why Toyota Makes the World's Best Cars

By: Castlegar Toyota   |   08 May 2017

It’s no secret that Toyota is a champion in the automotive industry.

For years, they’ve been ahead of the pack, engineering vehicles that not only promote enhanced performance and fuel efficiency, but environmental sustainability as well. Toyota stands behind innovative hybrid technologies, and since launching the first hybrid in 1997, continues to invest and develop hydrogen cell technology.

Toyota has won the most ecoENERGY awards in Canada, making it the leading automotive manufacturer for fuel-efficient vehicles. In part, this is largely what contributed to Toyota winning the title of the World’ Best Selling Car of 2016 with the Toyota Corolla.

Out of 100 automobile brands, Toyota captured three spots in the final top ten list, which is an incredible feat. After the Corolla stole first place, the Toyota Rav4 came in seventh and the Toyota Camry came in 10th. Dominating the charts, it’s only fair that we share a bit of information on each model so that you can see for yourself why Toyota vehicles are the best.

The Camry

The Toyota Camry has been around since 1982 and first debuted as a compact car. Since 1991, the model has been designed as a wide-body, mid-sized four-door car. The 2017 Toyota Camry has come a long way since the 1980’s. There are nine models available, including the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid which enables a Hybrid Synergy Drive and Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

Hybrid Synergy Drives lets the Camry operate in three different ways--gas only, electric only, or a combination of both. You save on fuel, while simultaneously saving the planet, too. Equipped with advanced safety technologies, like Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and jammed full of state-of-the art technology, the new Camry is your go-to car.

The Corolla

The Toyota Corolla won the title of World’s Best Selling Car in 2016, but funny enough, introduced 50 years ago in 1966, the Toyota Corolla was already the best-selling car worldwide by 1974. Some things never change, and that’s what’s given the Corolla so much success on the market. Eleven generations and 40 million vehicles sold, the Corolla remains the best compact car.

Today’s 2017 Toyota Corollas don’t stray from their compact roots, which make them great city vehicles. Their aerodynamic design and Valvematic engine allow drivers to navigate through crowded streets, while achieving low emissions status and exceptional fuel efficiency. Exterior features like LED headlamps, and handy technology like a standard rear backup camera make every trip foolproof.

The Rav4

The Rav4 has been a favourite amongst Canadians since it first hit the market in 1995. Originally designed for drivers wanting the maneuverability of a compact car, but the cargo space of an SUV, today’s 2017 Toyota Rav4 stirs up connotations of adventure and family fun.

The 2017 Rav4 is a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS when equipped with its LED headlights. It’s also available as the 2017 Rav4 Hybrid, which is the ultimate choice for eco-conscious drivers. Whichever model you choose, you’ll be treated to all the best features, like 60/40 split folding seats for ample cargo, all-wheel drive, advanced safety features, and incredible entertainment systems.
