Toyota is proud to announce it has been busy winning awards and recognitions. Consumer Reports Ranks Lexus, Toyota and Scion Top Car Brands for 2013, Consumer Reports Names Toyota Prius, Highlander and Scion FR-S Top Picks for 2013 and Toyota and Lexus Vehicles Dominate IntelliChoice’s Best Overall Value of the Year Awards. There is no better reason to buy the Toyota brand.
First off, Lexus, Toyota and Scion have been named Top Car Brands for 2013 by Consumer Reports. Lexus earned the best overall score of 79 in Consumer Reports’ 2013 Car Brand Report “on a foundation of plush and very reliable vehicles.” The editors ranked Toyota fourth and said the brand made significant strides with the Camry redesign in both handling and fuel economy. Scion came in seventh in the rankings. We can’t help but give Kudos to these brands for providing excellent products to the world.
Consumer Reports has also chosen the Toyota Prius hybrid as its top green car. The Toyota Highlander was named top midsized sport utility vehicle, and the Scion FR-S tied with Subaru’s BRZ as the top sporty car. Top Picks must meet Consumer Reports’ stringent criteria in three areas: road test, reliability and safety. The winners are chosen from more than 280 tested models because they’re “impressive all-around vehicles.”
IntelliChoice has named Toyota and Lexus as one of the lowest cost of ownership brands. IntelliChoice said Toyota and Lexus earned 13 out of 23 Best Overall Value of the Year (BOVY) awards.
