From providing valuable care for the elderly and disabled, to revolutionising the way we engage with our vehicles, robots and artificial intelligence offer us all sorts of exciting possibilities for future mobility.
To celebrate the launch of the Toyota C-HR, Toyota is setting up “Urban Reflections”.
We look at how Corolla, the world’s most popular car with over 40 million sales, seamlessly transitioned to the Auris we know and love nearly 10 years ago.
Since the 1960s, Toyota has surprised and delighted people with its interpretation of what makes an engaging, exciting and entertaining sports car. Many of these have gone on to earn iconic status. We celebrate a selection of these landmark Toyotas sports cars here.
Famous for its starring role alongside Sean Connery in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, the Toyota 2000GT arrived on the world stage in the same year and instantly made a statement that Toyota was serious about challenging the best sports cars Europe had to offer.
With a name that means ‘Celestial’ or ‘Heavenly’ in Spanish, the minute the Celica turned a wheel in 1970, it was destined to be a star. The Celica was designed to provide drivers with a greater feeling of freedom, combining a practical interior within a sporty and affordable package.
On the face of it, Toyota’s most well-known family car – and the world’s best-selling vehicle – the Corolla, would seem out of place in the company of highly-focused sports cars but, in truth, over the years the Corolla has produced some of the most well-loved sporting Toyotas.
For sports car fans and Toyota purists, the arrival of the GT86 in 2011 was a welcome relief. With no MR2, Celica or Supra in the range to satisfy their cravings for the past few years, the pedigree of the GT86 was exactly what they had been waiting so long for.
The MR2 of 1984 was actually derived from a 1976 design project that had the goal of building an enjoyable, yet fuel efficient car. Over the coming years, the ethos of the original concept evolved into a sports car and the resulting ‘Midship Runabout 2-seater’ was born.
