Toyota: Canada's Favourite Automaker!

By: Nelson Toyota   |   21 Mar 2023

Among things like maple syrup, tobogganing, and Ryan Reynolds, it's no secret that Canadians love a good Toyota. Often going head-to-head against the Ford Motor Company for the top spot, the Toyota brand continues to maintain its status as one of Canada’s best-selling automakers, selling over 175,000 units in 2022. Not to mention, the beloved Toyota Corolla currently stands as Canada’s best-selling passenger car. The Toyota brand stays true to its roots with a name synonymous with reliability, dependability, and affordability. They also are one of the few automotive companies that put a focus on family values, with a massive range of models that are perfect for family buyers. Plus, as a leader and innovator in hybrid technology, the automaker is also helping drivers everywhere reduce their carbon footprint and cruise into a more sustainable future! Don’t take our word for it? Just check out some of these comments and testimonials from real Canadian drivers and reviewers!

“Toyota builds solid, efficient, and reliable vehicles. Most of their models do well in our testing, thanks to their refined powertrains, impressive fuel economy, comfortable rides, quiet cabins, and intuitive controls. The Camry is a perennial best seller, and the Highlander and Sienna are consistently among the top-scoring models in their respective classes. The Prius has long been among the most fuel-efficient cars available. Overall reliability for the brand continues to be superb.” Consumer Reports

“Toyota offers a wide range of legendarily reliable vehicles, ranging from the GR86 sports car to the three-row Highlander. The Camry is one of the better mid-size sedans you can buy, while the Tacoma has a well-earned reputation for being a sturdy pickup that isn't afraid to get dirty. The Corolla is a great choice for those seeking economical transportation, but when it comes to fuel economy the Prius hybrid is king.” Car and Driver

“Toyota is a Japanese brand whose refined, well-designed vehicles have earned it a great deal of popularity. Toyotas also have a superb record for reliability and durability. For buyers who plan on owning their new vehicles for a long time, the Toyota marque is a very compelling choice. The company also proved itself on the cutting edge of new technology with the rollout of the Prius, the world's first mass-produced hybrid. Despite the presence of a growing number of competitors in its segment, the Prius continues to boast class-leading sales. Toyota's current lineup is relatively extensive, including minivans, cars, trucks and SUVs. The brand remains extremely popular among savvy consumers who place a high value on quality and dependability.” - Edmunds

“The Toyota Camry is great. Suspension and traction are legit. Drives comfortably and handles the sharp curves very well. AWD performance exceeded my expectations and I feel safe driving the car in the winter.”

“I have driven Toyota RAV4s for years. The RAV4 Prime has absolutely blown me away. It’s been a month of driving this vehicle, and I can honestly say it is the smoothest RAV4 I have ever driven. I use it in eco-mode and get 78 km of electric vehicle (EV) driving and I am astonished at its pick-up and go. I was expecting it to be slower out of the gate but it’s peppy and smooth at high speeds. There’s so many safety features but my favourite features are obviously the EV, the heated steering wheel, the Apple CarPlay, and the automatic trunk opening button. I love everything about this vehicle. The Blizzard Pearl colour is so nice. This car is mint!"

“How do you give 4 thumbs up when you only have two? I’ve owned Toyota trucks for years and won’t purchase in another make. In my opinion, it has been the best truck on the road for years and continues to be so today. The Tacoma Sport 4x4 is stylish with top-notch quality and safety features. The ride is comfortable, smooth and quiet, not how you’d expect a truck to handle, yet it still manages to provide you with all the functions of a heavier-duty truck. Heavy snow, icy roads, rough terrain - no problem! You won’t go wrong by purchasing a Toyota!”
