Toyota has continued its success at the Auto Express New Car Awards with two awards, including Performance Car of the Year.
The New Toyota Yaris was named Affordable Hybrid of the Year for the second year running. The hybrid vehicle has a 1.5-litre petrol engine and an excellent electric motor providing high efficiency. The New Toyota Yaris is perfect for urban driving, helping drivers cope with the hustle and bustle in comfort.
Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief, commented: “The Yaris has always been a sensible and pragmatic supermini choice, but this latest version is far more than that. Due to its excellent hybrid powertrain and new architecture that makes it better to drive than ever before, it’s our favourite affordable hybrid for the second year in a row.”
Toyota GR Yaris won Performance Car of the Year at the Auto Express New Car Awards and was up against the Ferrari Roma and Porsche 911. The GR Yaris is based on Toyota’s Championship World Rally experience and is ready for any adventure.
Steve Fowler said: “This year’s Performance Car champ is a true giant-killer, fighting off machines with twice the power and prices three times as high. The GR Yaris was one of the most eagerly anticipated arrivals of the year, and its blend of performance, poise, and price means it hasn’t disappointed. Few cars as fun to drive, yet this pocket rocket is easy to live with and relatively affordable to run.”
