TOYOTA NAMED TOP MANUFACTURER AND COROLLA BEST HYBRID IN AUTOCAR’S BRITAIN’S BEST CAR AWARDS
Toyota has achieved double success in the Autocar Britain’s Best Car Awards, being named Best Car Manufacturer and its British-built Corolla model honoured as Best Hybrid Car.
Revealing the best manufacturer award, Autocar declares: “Toyota has transformed itself into a maker of exciting, enthusiast-focused cars as well as dynamic everyday models.”
It also acknowledges the company’s “leading voice in the environmental conversation” with regard to future sustainable mobility and gives much credit for its current success to the leadership and vision of its president, Akio Toyoda.
“The impressive progress made by Toyota over the past decade has reached the point where it can be considered not only the world’s biggest car maker, but also the best,” it adds.
Announcing Corolla as Britain’s Best Hybrid Car – the honour shared jointly between its Hatchback and Touring Sports versions – Autocar reports: “Responsive, keen-handling and frugal, it’s a hybrid with as broad a spread of dynamic qualities as any conventional car.”
