  1. Toyota has sold its last GT86 in the UK, setting the seal on almost nine years of unadulterated driving fun. The remarkable coupe has been the pathfinder for the company’s worldwide renaissance as a maker of pure-bred sports cars, blazing a trail for today’s GR Supra and GR Yaris – and for future models that will keep its spirit alive To celebrate the occasion Toyota has put together a short film capturing some of GT86’s greatest moments from the past decade. Setting the scene The idea of the new sports car was first mooted in 2005 as Toyota and Subaru looked for a venture
  2. The new 2021 Toyota C-HR hybrid SUV is now available in the UK, with a revised line-up that features new GR Sport models inspired by Toyota Gazoo Racing’s world championship winning success in international rally and endurance racing competition. The GR Sport grade, available with both 1.8 and 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid electric powertrains, makes its mark with powerful exterior styling details, including a black finish for the headlight and fog light housings, central bumper section and the background to the Toyota emblem. There’s a more prominent front spoiler, black door moul
  3. The Toyota GR Supra has made a remarkable impact, affirming its status as a sports car in its purest form, designed and engineered for the joy of driving. As the first global model to be developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing, it has drawn on Toyota’s sports car heritage while exploring new horizons of handling and performance Now the range is being extended in the UK for the first time with the established 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged engine being joined by a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo unit. The new 2.0-litre engine widens GR Supra’s market appeal and, being lighter an

  6. The potential of hydrogen to help achieve a future zero-emissions society, as set out in the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), is generating fast-growing interest and investment around the world, with businesses and consumers alike becoming ever more aware of the benefits it can deliver, across a wide range of applications To maximise the opportunities for hydrogen in Europe, Toyota Motor Europe (TME) has established a Fuel Cell Business Group to oversee its hydrogen activities across the region. Based in Brussels, it will strengthen the business case for hydrogen and support it
  7. Toyota’s vision for a future sustainable hydrogen society recognises the value of hydrogen as a viable and plentiful resource for carrying and storing energy. It has the potential to deliver zero carbon mobility, not just in road vehicles but equally in trains, ships and planes, and to generate power for industry, businesses and homes. It’s also an efficient means of storing renewable energy and can be transported to where it’s needed Toyota began development of a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle in 1992, successfully introducing the Mirai saloon to world markets in 2014.

  8. With the combination of further lockdowns and the colder winter months creeping in, the chances are that your car might be feeling a bit under the weather right now Rather than get caught out, here are some straightforward checks and simple DIY fixes brought to you by Halfords that you can do to make sure that your vehicle starts when you need it to (and is mechanically safe and sound when it does). Check your Battery Car batteries can fail for several reasons, but two of the most common are lack of use and cold weather. Your car’s probably spent most of the last month on your drive,
  9. Few cars can claim to be genuinely iconic, but Toyota’s beautiful 1960s 2000GT sports car certainly is. Now a rare example has gone under the hammer for more than $900,000 Very few 2000GT come up for sale, never mind one originally bought and owned by legendary American racing driver Otto Linton (1917-2018), so this 1967 model attracted fierce bidding when it arrived on the auction platform at RM Sotheby’s in the US. Bidding exceeded the car’s upper estimate, closing at $912,500, or approximately £696,000 last Sunday (25 October). The anonymous buyer certainly has one of the finest e

  11. quite a predictable result (again) but good to see them winning the championship
  12. Toyota Gazoo Racing earned a third consecutive overall Le Mans 24 Hours win with the TS050 Hybrid after a turbulent and ultimately successful race at the Circuit de la Sarthe Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Brendon Hartley completed over 5,000km (over 3,100 miles) of a gruelling race, held for only the second time in September, and won by five laps in the No8 TS050 Hybrid, to take the lead in the drivers’ World Championship. For Sébastien and Kazuki, this was their third consecutive Le Mans triumph and they join only seven previous drivers who have achieved that feat in the race
  13. The GR Super Sport hypercar returned to its spiritual home today to drive in public for the first time, as part of its ongoing development process, shortly before the start of the 88th Le Mans 24 Hours at the Circuit de la Sarthe Fittingly for a vehicle based on the twice Le Mans-winning TS050 Hybrid race car, a GR Super Sport development model, customized as a convertible and in GR camouflage livery, completed a demonstration lap, before participating in the ceremony to return the Le Mans trophy for this year’s race. The car was driven by Alex Wurz, the former Toyota Gazoo Racing driver.
  14. Toyota Gazoo Racing will start the 88th Le Mans 24 Hours from the front after earning a fourth consecutive pole position at the Circuit de la Sarthe as it chases a hat-trick of victories for the TS050 Hybrid in the legendary French race Kamui Kobayashi in the No7 car he shares with Mike Conway and José María López set a fastest lap of 3mins 15.267secs to earn his third pole position at Le Mans.

  16. Toyota has equipped its Aygo city car with a premium sound package that packs a mighty punch. The new JBL Edition focuses on audio excellence with the most powerful and sophisticated system yet featured in the model JBL is Toyota’s partner for premium in-car audio, designing systems to achieve the best results for each specific model. Aygo may be the smallest in the line-up, but that has been no barrier creating a live gig feel with JBL’s advanced audio technology.

  17. Toyota’s mighty Land Cruiser gains even more power with the introduction of a new and efficient 2.8-litre engine, leading a series of performance and equipment updates for both the passenger and commercial versions of the SUV The new four-cylinder turbodiesel unit adds plenty of extra muscle to the world-famous Land Cruiser, delivering a maximum 201bhp/150kW at 3,000rpm and producing peak torque of 500Nm from 1,600rpm*. This marks an increase of 27bhp and 50Nm on the previous engine, gains that are reflected in a 2.8-second reduction in the 0-62mph time to less than 10 seconds*.
  18. The Toyota Hilux has a proud history of achievement, conquering the world’s toughest environments from polar icecaps to desert wastes and live volcanoes. The future is just as impressive, as the pick-up range prepares to introduce a new, more powerful engine, significant technical updates and a chiselled, contemporary new look that’s a perfect expression of its rugged qualities Today’s Hilux is about much more than being an ultra-reliable all-wheel drive workhorse that can deal with demanding off-road conditions. Without compromising its go-anywhere character, it is equally suited to dual
  19. As its name makes clear, the new RAV4 Hybrid Black Edition has a powerful one-colour treatment that makes Toyota’s mid-size SUV stand out from the crowd The deep Galaxy Black paint finish throws the angles and facets of the bodywork into sharp relief, an effect heightened by matching black styling elements throughout. The front grille and lower grille, lower bumpers, door mirror casings, skid plates, rear garnish and spoiler are all-black, while the 19-inch alloy wheels also have a glossy black finish. Even the Intelligent Clearance Sonars are painted black, so the only interruption in th
  20. The new GR Yaris is breaking cover in the UK this week with the start of a summer tour of Toyota retailers. The thoroughbred performance hatchback, developed directly from Toyota Gazoo Racing’s World Rally Championship-winning experience, is making its debut ahead of its official launch in October The display gives potential customers and those who have already reserved their car the chance to take a first close-up look at the model “in the metal”.
