Toyota's crossovers are car-based vehicles that offer the utility and capability of an SUV with the driving manners of a car. A roomy cabin combined with upright seating gives these vehicles the utility and command-of-the-road driving position that buyers increasingly favor over low-slung cars. Yet, by using car-based underpinnings, these crossovers retain all the ease and maneuverability associated with traditional sedans. Toyota offers a wide range of crossovers ranging from subcompact up through midsize 3-row models.
ToyotaC-HR: Aimed at millennials, the Toyota C-HR is the brand's subcompact crossover that is more of an urban take on the genre. Offered only in front-drive, the Toyota CH-R is based on the TNGA (Toyota New Generation Architecture) platform which offers a generous amount of interior space given the vehicle's subcompact footprint. Power is supplied by a 144 horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. Apple CarPlay and Toyota Safety Sense-P help to round out the list.
ToyotaRAV4: More rugged than ever, the Toyota RAV4 continues with its tough outward appearance and sterling driving characteristics. Available in front- or all-wheel drive, its roomy interior, easy comfort and stellar reliability are hallmarks of this compact-sized crossover, which competes head-on with the Honda CR-V. The RAV4 one of the most popular crossovers on the road today. A 203-horsepower, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder is standard and there's also a 219-horsepower, 2.5-liter hybrid powertrain in the RAV4 XSE Hybrid. The Hybrid also includes AWD as standard with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
ToyotaHighlander: One of Toyota's best-sellers, the Toyota Highlander offers three rows of seating with room for up to eight passengers. The Highlander crossover is an excellent family hauler and rides on the Camry's unibody platform. With sleek styling, the Highlander's power choices include a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder, a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and a 306-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 Hybrid. All-wheel drive is an alternative to the standard front-drive on both V6 models. If you plan on towing, choose either V6 which can pull up to 5,000 pounds and skip the 1,500-pound capabilities of the 4-cylinder.
If you're looking for even more capability, Toyota also offers a lineup of truck-based SUVs in the midsize Toyota 4Runner and full-size Toyota Sequoia.
Sedans - those 4-door cars that have been the prime family movers for generations - are how Toyota made its bones here in America. Starting with the Toyota Corona in 1965, it was clear that Toyota was building a solid reputation for family cars that were reliable, priced right, and well-suited to the marketplace. Over time, Toyota has built a solid portfolio of subcompact, compact, midsize and full-size 4-door models that fit just about every budget and need with a solid reputation for quality and high resale value.
ToyotaYaris: The Toyota Yaris is a subcompact sedan and the brand's most affordable car. Stylish, sporty and efficient, the Yaris is perfect as a first car for younger drivers or those with short commutes. A 106-horsepower 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine moves things along, and a 6-speed manual or automatic help give you the most efficient ride possible.
ToyotaCorolla: One of the longest running nameplates under the Toyota banner, the Toyota Corolla utilizes the Toyota New Generation Architecture (TNGA) to keep the reliability in place while introducing a dose of driving excitement. The result? Class-above comfort in ride and cabin solitude as well as a long list of features that help it compete with Honda Civic and the rest of its competition. Solid, quiet and comfortable, the Corolla has it all: Crisp steering, a refined Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and a wide choice of engines.
ToyotaCamry: One of the most popular, reliable and recommendable sedans on the road, Toyota Camry is blessed with some serious style, performance and handling. Based on TNGA, this midsize sedan competes with the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Nissan Altima, while offering an optional V6 that the others lack. The base powerplant is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine making 203 horsepower, while options include a 301 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 or a 2.5-liter Hybrid making a total of 208 combined horsepower. The Hybrid can achieve 53 mpg on the highway. An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard with the gas engines, while a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) graces the hybrid version.
ToyotaAvalon: The flagship to the full sedan lineup, the Toyota Avalon boasts comfortable ride manners, a standard V6, a huge interior and a strong record of reliability. It is complete with Toyota's robust suite of active safety features, plus the benefits of Apple CarPlay and Amazon's Alexa integration. Standard power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 making 301 horsepower. The hybrid version utilizes a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder with electric motor for a combined 215 horsepower. An 8-speed automatic transmission is mated to the V6, while the Hybrid's power is connected to a CVT.

The range of Toyota trucks, which come in varying cab configurations and bed lengths, enjoy a sterling reputation for longevity and resale value. Although they only build pickups in the midsize and full-size segments, both Toyota truck models offer a wide variety of styles with many different capabilities.
