Toyota

Featuring models ranging from the tiny Toyota iQ city car right up to the giant Toyota Land Cruiser V8 off roader, Toyota builds a car for just about everyone. The firm has pioneered the introduction of its Hybrid Synergy Drive technology with the Toyota Prius and Toyota Auris.

  • Toyota Aygo

    The original Toyota Aygo's brilliant combination of good looks and low running costs ensured the success of the old model – and the same should be true of the new one. Nippy performance means it's fun to drive around town, while the interior is of good quality for the price and offers a surprising amount of passenger space. A tiny boot counts against it – and there's no diesel option.

  • Toyota Yaris

    The Toyota Yaris is a sensible choice for families looking for a versatile town car. Both three and five-door versions are available and both are compact, affordable and very reliable to boot. What's more, there's plenty of space inside, and the Toyota Yaris has a range of small, economical engines, including a hybrid model - the UK's cheapest hybrid-powered car. The Toyota Yaris can't match the excellent Ford Fiesta when it comes to the driving experience, but it does have useful features such as a sliding rear seat and a smooth automatic gearbox. As an all-round package, the Toyota Yaris is an excellent choice.

  • Toyota iQ

    Toyota's tiny iQ is designed to take on the Smart ForTwo. Just like the Smart, it's very short, but while the Smart ForTwo is a strict two-seater, the Toyota iQ feature a novel 3+1 seating layout, allowing three adults and a child to make a short journey in comfort. Two engines are available, a 1.0-litre three-cylinder and a 1.3-litre four-cylinder, with the former being cleaner and more suited to the car's character. The interior is well equipped and the highlight of the driving experience is the Toyota iQ's incredibly tight turning circle. It isn’t cheap though.

  • Toyota Auris

    The Toyota Auris isn't as popular as its rivals - the Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf - but it's spacious, keenly priced, and well equipped. It's also a sensible choice for those looking for the best in customer support and build quality. The Toyota Auris comes Active, Icon, Excel and Sport models. All versions feature air-conditioning and lots of safety equipment as standard, although the engine range lets the side down as none are particularly quick or comfortable.

  • Toyota Avensis

    The Toyota Avensis is Toyota's answer to the Ford Mondeo and it has a reputation for being a good car, but a very dull one. However, this latest model's styling is a big improvement over the model it replaces. The driving experience is safe and secure, and the interior won’t set pulses racing, but the Toyota Avensis features fantastically comfortable seats which are perfect for long journeys. What's more, there's a level of comfort and luxury on the move that seriously impresses. The 2.0-litre diesel offers very low emissions, too.

  • Toyota Verso

    The Toyota Verso is designed with the family in mind. To that end, it's very solidly built and features a spacious cabin and refined drive. Like the Renault Grand Scenic, the Toyota Verso MPV comes with seven seats as standard, and all five of the rear chairs flip and fold to create the right mix of person and luggage carrying capability. The Toyota Verso is very easy to drive, and visibility is good. The styling, both inside and out, isn’t particularly inspiring, but the quality of the finish is impressive.

  • Toyota Prius

    The Toyota Prius has been around since 2001, but this latest generation car is the best to date. It uses a 1.8-litre petrol engine, electric motor and CVT automatic gearbox to get the power to the wheels. The hybrid is automatically controlled, so it's as easy to drive as a normal petrol-powered car. The system ensures that the Toyota Prius remains as efficient as possible around town, where the car can also run on electric-power alone. The Toyota Prius is based on the Toyota Avensis, and features a decently sized cabin, with large amounts of room in the front and rear, and a futuristic dashboard that's equipped with a touch-screen trip computer.

  • Toyota GT 86

    The Toyota GT 86 is a front-engined, rear-wheel drive sports 3dr coupe designed and built as a joint venture with Subaru. Powered by a Subaru-sourced 2.0-litre 'boxer' petrol engine, the Toyota GT 86 offers great handling and entertaining performance. Similarly priced to the Nissan 370Z, buyers can choose from a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.

  • Toyota Prius +

    The Toyota Prius + is a seven-seat version of the world's most famous hybrid. It offers buyers considerably more cabin space, and is the cleanest and most fuel efficient seven-seater on the market. Inside, there are three, independent, split/folding second row seats and a pair of split/folding third row seats. The styling is immediately recognisable as a Toyota Prius, featuring an extended roofline with a large sunroof.

  • Toyota Land Cruiser

    The Toyota Land Cruiser is a common sight on the world's toughest roads for a reason – it's incredibly reliable and boasts seriously impressive ability off-road. The Toyota Land Cruiser features a number of sophisticated gadgets to keep you moving when the going gets tough, plus there's plenty of tech to keep you comfortable too. Most models feature seven-seats for ultimate practicality, like its rival the Land Rover Discovery. However, the Toyota Land Cruiser struggles on the road, while a sluggish four-cylinder diesel or thirsty petrol V8 are the only engine options.

  • Toyota RAV4

    The Toyota RAV4 has grown in every dimension, making it a very practical family car, with lots of space inside. Unfortunately, it has lost some of its character along the way, and while it still feels car-like to drive, it's not as fun as the Mazda CX-5 or Ford Kuga. A simple engine range consists of two economical diesels and a thirsty petrol, which we’d avoid as it will not only cost more to run but will hurt the resale value of the car, which should otherwise be excellent thanks to a long warranty.
