Toyotas are known to be extremely durable and versatile cars. While most of the consumer models may not appeal to driving enthusiasts, they are generally revered by the average consumer for being excellent daily drivers. Frugal, affordable, reliable: what more could a driver ask for?
Toyota Singapore has a wide range of cars that will cater to the needs of most, if not all, Singaporeans. To find out which Toyota best suits your needs, read on to find out more.
Toyota Corolla Atis
The all popular Altis, you can’t get any better than that. The Corolla Altis is basically a staple on Singapore’s roads. You’d be hard-pressed to spend a day on the road and not see one of these sedans roaming around, either as consumer cars or private hire vehicles (PHV). In fact, some of these cars are known to survive way past their 10-year COE with minimal issues. Here in Singapore, it might just be all the car you’ll ever need.
Toyota CHR is Toyota’s answer to the small-crossover niche that has been dominant on Singapore’s roads as of late. The CH-R is based on the TNGA-C platform that is shared with several other Toyota vehicles such as the Corolla and Prius. The CH-R is hugely capable, offered with a range of 1.2-litre or 1.8-litre hybrid engines, a 377-litre boot, and plenty of space for 5 adults.
The Toyota Noah is an interesting minivan, going by many names like the Voxy or Esquire. While it is not as large or luxurious as the Alphard or Vellfire, it still seats up to 7 passengers in relative comfort. The Toyota Noah is available with a 1.8-litre hybrid powertrain, and a 2.0-litre petrol variant.
The Toyota Sienta has been rather popular as of late. A mini MPV that has a wide range of storage options and variants that include 5-seater, 6-seater, or 7-seater models. Measuring in at just under 4.3m long, the Sienta is a rather easy car to drive too. Not at all imposing, but immensely popular because of its practicality. The Sienta would be great for smaller families that may need the extra seats from time to time.
The Yaris moniker has been around for some time. Since 1999, these hatchbacks have been around, reliably serving smaller families for years. In some markets, sedan versions of the Yaris have been badged as the Toyota Vios. The current generation Yaris comes with a 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine for both petrol and hybrid variants.
Of course, there is the upcoming GR Yaris for driving enthusiasts. With an amazing 1.6-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces over 260 horsepower and variable four-wheel drive. All that power from a tiny but incredible engine.
Back when the Toyota Wish was brought into Singapore, it was a big hit among consumers. Offered with 1.8-litre or 2.0-litre engines, CVT transmissions and space for 7 people, the Toyota Wish is a great option for larger families that don’t want to break the bank. And a huge selling point for the Wish is its low starting price, and range of frugal engines compared to its competitors. Low fuel consumption, plenty of space, there’s a lot to like about this MPV.
