Whether you’re a mom with four kids or a twenty-something performance enthusiast, you’ll likely find something from the Japanese manufacturer to suit you. All Toyota models provide reliable and confident motoring, with the brand being on top of its game for decades in the USA – and that’s because it isn’t afraid to diversify. The manufacturer produces everything from confident little sports cars to capable trucks. It’s not just the types of vehicles that show plenty of variation, but their pricing as well. The most affordable model starts at just under $20,000, while the most expensive spec surpasses the $50,000 mark. Here are a few of the different models available from Toyota currently:
Toyota Yaris Sedan
The Yaris Sedan shares quite a bit of DNA with the Mazda 2 and is Toyota’s cheapest product available. Its compact dimensions make it ideal for city driving and its affordable MSRP makes it the best option for students. With just 106 horsepower put out by the 1.5-liter engine, the Yaris wasn’t built to get you to your destination in a hurry. What it will do is offer decent levels of comfort, frugal fuel economy, and good safety ratings from both the NHTSA and IIHS.
The interior is as basic as you’d expect from a car at this price point, but its minimalist cabin doesn’t automatically translate to looking overly cheap. The inside of the Yaris actually gives it an upper hand amongst its competitors. Overall, the Yaris is an excellent choice for younger buyers.
Toyota Corolla Hatchback
Gone are the days when the Corolla simply blended into the crowd. The hatch boasts some pretty futuristic styling and has evolved into a family-friendly hatchback over the years. The problem is, the Corolla’s styling makes it look like an exciting car to drive. While the 168-hp four-pot does its job, the hatch isn’t going to deliver any real thrills. What it will deliver is comfort, safety features, and excellent gas mileage. At a cost of $20,465 for the base model, that’s all you can ask for.
Toyota GR Supra
Toyota’s current-gen Supra has been called a Z4 with a Toyota badge, and while that’s not entirely accurate, there’s some merit behind this statement. The Supra hosts a Z4-sourced turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder that sends 382 horsepower to the rear wheels. It performs beautifully on a twisty road, favoring sharp turns rather than straight lines. The interior is not as luxurious as the rivals it goes up against, but the materials used are premium and the tech is top-notch. The Supra is a “love it or hate it” kind of car.
It’s a crossover-eat crossover world, and the RAV4 devours its competition in the US. It has to be pretty great to go up against esteemed rivals like the Honda CR-V. It’s Toyota’s top-selling crossover, offering multiple engines and drivetrain options to choose from. The space inside is also something to write home about, making it the ideal way to go for smaller families. There’s some decent cargo room on offer as well, although the interior does seem quite cheap in certain areas. Overall, though, it’s an excellent SUV.
