Toyota at Paris Motor Show 2018

Innovative Mobility Provider

As the automotive industry enters a once-in-a-century transformation, Toyota has started a shift towards becoming an overall mobility company, offering even better mobility for all. At this year’s Paris Motor Show, Toyota showcases two key innovation pillars: hybrid technology and Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) – both reflected in the all new Corolla Touring Sports, alongside the reveal of its Hatchback sibling, the new RAV4 Hybrid and the return of Camry.

All New Corolla

The all-new Corolla showcases a more dynamic design, which differentiates between the sporting, compact Hatchback and the sleek, versatile Touring Sports more strongly than ever before. With a brand new 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain joining the engine line-up, the new 2018 Corolla model range also marks the debut of Toyota’s dual hybrid strategy.

In fact, all core models will now be available with a choice of two hybrid powertrains. Firstly, a 122hp, 1.8 litre engine offers all the fourth generation hybrid system’s strengths, including improved response and linearity, and the traditional benefits of fuel efficiency and a relaxing drive. Secondly, a 180hp, 2.0 litre engine, matches these strengths with greater power on demand, effortless acceleration and more dynamic, ‘fun to drive’ characteristics.

The new Corolla range’s TNGA platform guarantees a more rewarding driving experience thanks to a centre of gravity that is lowered by 10mm. It also has a multi-link rear suspension fitted as a standard across the model range and a 60% more rigid body shell through the use of high-strength steel as reinforcement in key areas.

All New RAV4

The all-new fifth generation RAV4 takes the SUV into a new era of performance, capability and safety - advances that are underpinned by the first use of a TNGA platform in an SUV and a powerful new design. As well as providing more space and comfort, the cabin displays exceptional quality and finish throughout.

The new RAV4 remains unique in its class through offering customers a self-charging hybrid powertrain. The new 2.5 litre, 222 DIN hp TNGA hybrid powertrain delivers step-changes in power, responsiveness and efficiency. At the same time, the new RAV4 Hybrid’s electric AWD system has been re-engineered and enhanced to provide much stronger performance in challenging conditions and secure handling on slippery surfaces.

The new RAV4 is also the first Toyota to benefit from additional Toyota Safety Sense features that extend the use of advanced technologies to help prevent accidents and provide greater driver assistance, including systems that introduce a degree of automated driving.

All New Camry

After 14 years of absence, the Toyota Camry returns to Europe, incorporating hybrid technology. Making its European debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the new Toyota Camry Hybrid combines stylish design and superior comfort levels with the high efficiency of its latest generation self-charging hybrid powertrain.

The all-new Camry builds on all the core values that have made it so popular. Leading levels of quality, durability and reliability gives the car a quietness and ride quality with a head-turning new exterior, while the interior design provides outstanding comfort and roominess.

The state-of-the-art powertrain technology features an all-new 2.5 litre self-charging hybrid powertrain that combines fuel efficiency, low emissions and quiet operation with more power and greater responsiveness for newfound levels of driving pleasure. Key to the new Camry’s enhanced dynamic abilities and superior ride quality is its all-new, TNGA-based platform. An engaging drive is ensured thanks to increased torsional rigidity, a new rear double wishbone suspension and a significantly lowered centre of gravity.

All New Yaris GR Sport

Inspired by the exclusive Yaris GRMN performance hatchback, the new Yaris GR SPORT is set to bring more sports driving pleasure to Toyota’s supermini range. Toyota’s return to the World Rally Championship in 2017 led to the development of the performance focused Yaris GRMN, which won high critical acclaim and was a sell-out success with all 400 examples snapped up by customers before the car reached the showroom.

The new GR SPORT takes the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing sporting influence to the heart of the Yaris range, delivering genuine fun-to-drive performance and sports styling. The GRMN-inspired modifications are focused on the suspension, giving the car engaging handling and responsiveness. It uses Sachs Performance shock absorbers similar to those fitted to the GRMN and a solid (rather than hollow) anti-roll bar to gain extra rigidity.

The black 17-inch cast alloy wheels are exclusive to the GR SPORT but are fitted with the same Bridgestone Potenza RE50 205/45R17 tires as the GRMN model. The GR SPORT is exclusively a five-door and will be available with the Yaris’ standard 1.5 litre self-charging hybrid powertrain.

All New Yaris Y20

Toyota is paying tribute to the original Yaris by introducing a new Y20 grade to its 2019 model range, 20 years after its successful B segment car was first displayed at Paris Motor Show in 1998. Through two decades and three generations, Yaris has become firmly established as Toyota’s best-selling model in Europe.

The revised Yaris range, revealed for the first time at the Paris Motor Show, will offer a new multimedia system that enables smartphone integration. There will be an initial production run of 1,998 Launch Edition Y20 models featuring the same gold paintwork used by the first Yaris back in 1998 but with the contemporary twist of a bi-tone dark grey roof.

Standard and bi-tone versions will be available, the latter matching silver, pearl or black bodywork colours with a new dark grey finish for the roof. The exterior styling uses dark grey features to distinguish the Y20 within the Yaris line up.

Second Generation Toyota Safety Sense

Toyota is committed to achieving a safe mobility society with an approach that involves people, vehicles and the traffic environment. The company also pursues ‘real-world safety’ by learning from accidents and incorporating this knowledge into vehicle development. Moving one step closer to its ultimate goal of an automotive society with zero accidents, Toyota is rolling out the second generation of Toyota Safety Sense.

The upgraded active safety package features a single lens camera and millimeter wave radar. The performance of both systems has been enhanced to expand the scope of hazard detection and improve functionality.

The new system unit has also been reduced in size for ease of installation across the Toyota model lineup. Toyota Safety Sense now includes two upgraded versions of the Pre-Collision System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert, Road Sign Assist and Automatic High Beam. In addition, it introduces a new Lane Keep Assist for advanced driving support.
