Toyota Proace Sideview 2016
Toyota unveiled the people carrier at Geneva Motor Show this year along its siblings like the Peugeot and Citroen Space Tourer.
What is it?
The all new Proace is not a van to carry cargo boxes to deliver from one place to another but it is more than a delivery van now, it is more like a car, more concrete people carrier and has been turned into the workhorse.

Toyota has pushed the Citroen Peugeot out of the ring with its Proace.
Practicality of Proace
The all new Proace van has very strong and clear ambitions and targets to capture the panel van market by offering the range of variations from different wheel bases to body sizes. But it should be aware of Ford Transit in the UK which has more than 350 variations in the panel van.

Toyota’s performance has been out-class for the last two years and it is holding the top seller position with more than 10 million units sold in just 2013 but this time we are considering only one model, Toyota Corolla. This model is leading the sales volume against any other model in the world for February 2014. Honda Civic was edged out by this compact car just at the start of the year in compact auto sales race and it is enjoying a far easier time since February by being best selling compact car with a total of 25,299 sales in a single month, even the Chevy Cruze upset the Civic last month by jumping from third to second position and they sold almost 21,836 units, where Honda has 21,575 sales of Civic.

If you just check out the position of European auto makers on the selling graph then you will notice that the most influential Volkswagen Jetta is sitting at the seventh place VW has its sales volume of 11,908 units. Like Ford, Volkswagen is planning for massive updates in its top models. Mazda3 was exclusively unveiled last year with massive updates and people like the model but in the February, Mazda3 has disappointed its makers by making sales of just over seven thousand and the out-going Volkswagen Golf has only 1,649 units sold.
The new Toyota Aygo has arrived with convincing, fun, funky and appealing looks with a host of tempting options to customise the already alluring looks. The dramatic X-Theme going on at the front distinguishes it from the 108 and C1 and the gazebo-style profile, rear spoiler and window graphic that extends in to the rear light clusters make the Aygo look bigger and bolder than it is.
The interior quality isn’t as funky but it looks an alluring and well bolted together. The Aygo hasn’t increased in size but it has new instruments, wider armrests, bit more luggage space with a trapezoidal centre console. The Aygo also gets Toyota’s new x-touch multimedia system with a 7″ touchscreen controlling audio, phone, connectivity and trip info, with SatNav and Apps an option and a rear view camera as standard.
The only engine option will be the 1.0 lire 3-cylinder petrol with 68bhp and a choice of five-speed manual or Toyota’s x-shift automated manual and you’ll be able to have the Aygo as a tin top or with a folding canvas roof. The new Toyota Aygo will be far better than far better than an EV for going around round congested urban areas.
Toyota has recalled almost one million of its own vehicles and some Lexus models in the latest recalls.
Toyota recently declared that it is recalling 700,000 units of Prius plus an additional 260,000 Tacoma, RAV4 and Lexus RX 350 vehicles in the US. The problem is with the vehicles” ECU engine management computers. There have been no reports of accidents or injuries, but Toyota is worried that under certain conditions the vehicle may lose power and stop. Toyota says that braking is not compromised if the condition does manifest itself.
2014 Toyota RAV4
The specific vehicles included in the loss of power recall are model year 2010 through 2014 Prius cars. In addition, some 2012 RAV 4s, Tacoma pickups from 2012 and 2013, and some Lexus RX 350s from 2012 and 2013 will also be recalled over a separate issue related to ABS and traction control. In those vehicles the anti-lock braking system’s software will be updated in the ECU. Toyota says that braking is not compromised if the condition does manifest itself. Toyota hinted that the update may not be available at dealerships yet.
The 2013 Camry Hybrid takes the core Camry traits to a different altitude of style sophistication and brilliance. Put purely, there are reasons why purchasing a new-fangled Camry has turned out to be a reflexive behavior for millions of customers in American auto market. Then again, there are quite a lot of spiteful traits about the new Hybrid Camry.
2014 Toyota Camry
This is why Toyota has dominated the sales chart for a long time, it can’t just be the bulletproof consistency, but that definitely helps. For every moan about the Buick style ride and handling, there are a million drivers who value its insipid driving style.
A 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine is fitted in the new Toyota Camry which is capable of generating 156 horsepower and a similar amount of twist 156 lb-ft of torque. It is an adequate power to deliver a 0 to 60 mph time of 7.9 seconds. The petrol engine is paired with an electric motor capable of developing 199 lb-ft of torque with the help of its Nickel-metal Hydride battery pack.
2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid Eengine
The all new Camry is equipped with low rolling resistance tyres and because of maximum speed rating of these tyres the top speed is electronically controlled at 117 mph. Regardless of being a total doze off in the corners, the Camry Hybrid is comparatively swift than a Prius, that takes two extra seconds to go from 0-60 mph. The CVT automatic transmission used in Toyota Hybrid was widely criticized in previous years because it causes the engine to make a loud sound at high revs while the CVT gains speed gradually. There is no advancement noticed in the new transmission either but the new programming helps the car to get more speed with ease.
Some reports suggest that Toyota is getting ready to introduce four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines in 2015. Toyota recently trademarked the names NX 200t and NX 300h for a future compact crossover, which may mean a new small engine.
Many car manufacturers have launched turbo-four engines recently. You might think why is every car maker planning to build such engines, the reason being these turbo-four engines give the same power as a V-6 but are better on fuel economy. Lexus is the luxury division of Toyota and both of them don’t currently have a turbocharged vehicle in the US. Toyota’s main competitors like Ford and Hyundai have a 2.0 litre turbo engine on offer where as Toyota Camry continue with its admired 3.5 litre V6. A new 2.0 litre four cylinder turbo charged engine is debut around 2015. There will also be a hybrid version of this engine. It can also be used across the range in Lexus IS250 as well as Toyota RAV4. Some of the RAV4’s competitors like the Ford Escape and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport are already equipped with 2.0 litre turbo engines.

These new Toyota engines will be mated to CVT in small cars and to either a six or eight speed automatic in larger cars. Lexus is also expected to unveil a small luxury crossover at 2014 Geneva Motor Show. This downsizing of engines by every manufacturer helps in lowering CO2 emissions and gets better fuel economy. Toyota representatives declined to comment on the possibility of turbocharged engines, and said in an email that, “Turbocharged engines are something that we’ve sold in the past here in the U.S. and could consider in the future, but we don’t have any pending plans to announce at this time.”
Toyota has retained its number one spot as the world’s biggest manufacturer beating its closest
rival GM by 270,000 units. Toyota sold 9.98 million vehicles during 2013 up 2% from the year before as Toyota also announced plans to sell 10.32 million vehicles in 2014.

GM sold 9.71 million vehicles last year, while Germany’s Volkswagen came in third with sales of 9.5 million vehicles. Toyota’s leading models have been Lexus and Prius hybrid models. Toyota’s sales target for 2014 is 10.32 million which is significant as no carmaker has gone beyond the 10 million mark. The three largest carmakers all had a strong 2013, and the figures are an indication of a healthy global automotive sector.
