Toyota win four Gold Awards in the Auto Express 2018 Driver Power Survey

Toyota has been awarded four gold awards in the Auto Express 2018 Driver Power survey with Aygo, Prius and Verso all named as the ‘best cars to own’ in their category by UK motorists.

  • The Toyota Prius was awarded top honour for mile-per-gallon performance and overall running costs. The Prius was also placed first among compact family cars.
  • Toyota C-HR grabbed a silver award among small SUVs in its first Driver Power appearance.
  • The Toyota Aygo has ranked top among the nations city cars for the second time.
  • The Toyota Verso was awarded Gold for the markets choice in MPV’s.

Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief, said: "Toyota has impressed massively with its results in Driver Power 2018. With the new Prius winning in the compact family car category and topping the rankings when it comes to fuel economy and running costs, plus category wins for the Aygo and Verso, it's clear that the brand does far more than most to ensure its customers are very happy with their cars." Mark Roden, Toyota GB Sales Director, said: “Just as Toyota sets great store by listening to the voices of its customers, the Driver Power survey gives people the chance to have their say. It’s great that their independent opinions rank our vehicles so highly.”

Driver Power, now in its 16th year, attracted responses from more than 80,000 people to its surveys this year, producing a thorough and detailed insight into the opinions and experiences of Britain’s motorists.
