Why Toyota is Canada's Favourite Auto Manufacturer

By: Quesnel Toyota   |   31 Jan 2024

It's no secret that Canadians have a strong affinity for Toyota vehicles. Often in direct competition with the Ford Motor Company for the top spot, Toyota consistently maintains its status as one of Canada's best-selling automakers, with over 190,000 units sold in 2023. Not to mention, the beloved Toyota Corolla currently holds the title of Canada's best-selling passenger car.

Toyota remains true to its roots, synonymous with reliability, dependability, and affordability. It stands out as one of the few automotive companies that places a significant focus on family values, offering a vast range of models tailored for family buyers. As a leader and innovator in hybrid technology, Toyota is also playing a crucial role in helping drivers reduce their carbon footprint and transition towards a more sustainable future.

Don't just take our word for it—check out some of these comments and testimonials from real Canadian drivers and reviewers, highlighting the positive experiences and satisfaction with Toyota vehicles!

“Toyota builds solid, efficient, and reliable vehicles. Most of their models do well in our testing, thanks to their refined powertrains, impressive fuel economy, comfortable rides, quiet cabins, and intuitive controls. The Camry is a perennial best seller, and the Highlander and Sienna are consistently among the top-scoring models in their respective classes. The Prius has long been among the most fuel-efficient cars available. Overall reliability for the brand continues to be superb.”– Consumer Reports


“Toyota offers a wide range of legendarily reliable vehicles, ranging from the GR86 sports car to the three-row Highlander. The Camry is one of the better mid-size sedans you can buy, while the Tacoma has a well-earned reputation for being a sturdy pickup that isn't afraid to get dirty. The Corolla is a great choice for those seeking economical transportation, but when it comes to fuel economy the Prius hybrid is king.” – Car and Driver


“Toyota is a Japanese brand whose refined, well-designed vehicles have earned it a great deal of popularity. Toyotas also have a superb record for reliability and durability. For buyers who plan on owning their new vehicles for a long time, the Toyota marque is a very compelling choice. The company also proved itself on the cutting edge of new technology with the rollout of the Prius, the world's first mass-produced hybrid. Despite the presence of a growing number of competitors in its segment, the Prius continues to boast class-leading sales. Toyota's current lineup is relatively extensive, including minivans, cars, trucks and SUVs. The brand remains extremely popular among savvy consumers who place a high value on quality and dependability.” - Edmunds

First time EV driver 5 Stars

“JUST LOVE IT! I received my bZ4X just three weeks ago, and am loving the smooth feel of the drive. Have not even had time to install our level 2 charger (Level 1 is proving more than adequate for commuting), and am still exploring the vehicle's features. Overall I am very pleased with the vehicle - proud papa with his new baby.”

“MY FIRST NEW CAR PURCHASE IN DECADES. I've owned several Toyota vehicles ove the years but this is the fist new one in a long time. Toyota has never disappointed me. Some don't care for how the Camry looks but I love it. The SE front facia with honeycomb grill look great and the little spoiler on the trunk gives it a flair. Fit and finish of this vehicle is perfect as usual for Toyota. Heated front seats and steering wheel are a nice touch. The engine isn't quick but the transmission is smooth and the car moves along nicely. Fuel mileage is exceptional for a car this size.”

“I decided to get a 4Runner now before the impending redesign. The legendary reliability of the 1GR-FE V6 engine mated to the 5 speed auto are unheard of anymore in the automotive world. This vehicle is truly the one of last and best true SUVs offering real body on frame construction, no turbos, no direct injection, no hybrid system and actual hydraulic power steering with simple and easy to work on construction. I love this thing and have wanted one for years. Simple, bulletproof and perfect.”

“Awesome vehicle! I love it. We are a Toyota family and we couldn’t be happier with the product. I have a RAV4, my hubby a Tundra and my son a Corolla and we are all extremely satisfied with our vehicle choices.”

Gail Runge 5 Stars

“HAPPY TO DRIVE A TOYOTA. I have been a Toyota owner for many years and I just traded my older model in for a newer model. I am very satisfied with my new Toyota. It performs every bit as well as the last one. I would recommend these vehicles to everyone.”
