TOYOTA AT THE PARIS MOTOR SHOW | Shelbourne Motors

Toyota at the Paris Motor Show

Toyota unveiled a number of exciting new launches at this years Paris Motor Show. Showcasing Toyota’s focus on innovation, driver experience and design. At this year’s Paris Motor Show, Toyota showcased two key innovation pillars: hybrid technology and Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA).

The New Toyota Corolla

​The all-new Corolla showcases a more dynamic design, which differentiates between the sporting, compact Hatchback and the sleek, versatile Touring Sports more strongly than ever before. With a brand new 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain joining the engine line-up, the new 2018 Corolla model range also marks the debut of Toyota’s dual hybrid strategy. 

The new Corolla range’s TNGA GA-C platform guarantees a more rewarding driving experience thanks to a centre of gravity that is lowered by 10mm, multi-link rear suspension fitted as a standard across the model range, and a 60% more rigid body shell through the use of high-strength steel as reinforcement in key areas.

The New Toyota RAV4 ​

The all-new fifth generation RAV4 takes the SUV into a new era of performance, capability and safety, advances that are underpinned by the first use of a TNGA platform in an SUV and a powerful new design. As well as providing more space and comfort, the cabin displays exceptional quality and finish throughout.


The new RAV4 remains unique in its class in offering customers a self-charging hybrid powertrain – the new 2.5-litre, 222 DIN hp TNGA hybrid powertrain delivering step-changes in power, responsiveness and efficiency, with best-in-class fuel economy and emissions levels.  The new RAV4 is also the first Toyota to benefit from additional Toyota Safety Sense features that extend the use of advanced technologies to help prevent accidents and provide greater driver assistance, including systems that introduce a degree of automated driving.
