TENS of thousands of British motorists have had their say on the quality of today’s cars and they have given Toyota emphatic approval when it comes to reliability.
The results of the 2014 Which? Car Survey, the largest study of its kind in the UK, show Toyota models across the board are regarded as top performers when it comes to cars you can trust not to let you down, or cost you a fortune in repairs.
This year’s survey took into account the ownership experiences of more than 49,000 British motorists to calculate which models are the best to own and the least likely to let you down. The Toyota Auris and Auris Hybrid, both built in Britain, are star performers, being rated first and second in the medium car category for reliability.
Likewise, the seven-seat Verso is top-ranked among MPVs, while RAV4 is just shaded into second in the 4×4/SUV class. Yaris and Yaris Hybrid both achieve top-five placings, and Avensis, another UK-manufactured Toyota, and Prius, both figure strongly against their large car rivals.
These results clinched fourth place overall for Toyota among the survey’s best car brands. Which? Car Guide says: “If you’re looking for dependability, look no further than Toyota.”
