Toyota has received emphatic approval from UK motorists in the 2014 Which? Car Survey, which allows owners to rate the quality of their cars.
The car survey hosted by Which? is officially the largest of its kind, sourcing the opinions and experience from over 49,000 UK motorists. From this year’s results the Toyota range has performed considerably well in the eyes of customers.
The latest Toyota Auris and Auris Hybrid were particular star performers in the survey this year. They were rated first and second respectively in the Which? survey’s medium car category for reliability, specifically models up to three years old.
Each car included in this survey is given a reliability score out of 100, which is based on customers reports and opinions. The category-winning Auris managed a very admirable score of 95.8 for this year.
Meanwhile, the Toyota Verso was the highest ranked MPV in the survey and the Toyota RAV4 was just shaded into second in the 4x4/SUV class.
Overall Toyota was the fourth highest ranked manufacturer in this year’s Which? Car Survey, a very credible position to come in. Included in its comments this year’s Which? Car Guide said: “If you’re looking for dependability, look no further than Toyota.
“The Auris medium car and Verso MPV top the reliability tables for cars up to three years old, but expect to see Toyotas dominating the table across all classes and ages.”
It wasn’t just current Toyota cars which were rated and praised in the Which? car survey. The Toyota Yaris Verso, which hasn’t been in the company’s line-up for ten years now, still ranks in this year’s survey as the “most satisfying MPV to own”. It recorded a 92.1 per cent reliability score.
The President of Toyota GB, Matt Harrison, commented: “Once again, satisfied customers are proving powerful advocates for the qualities that define our brand. Their message is you can depend on Toyota for reliability, whether it is a car fresh from the showroom, or one that has already been on the road for three years or more.”
