Flow through life with the new Toyota C-HR
In a race defined by several rain showers, the #8 TS050 Hybrid of Sébastien Buemi, Anthony Davidson and Kazuki Nakajima earned victory inside the final 15 minutes in front of 50,200 spectators (weekend figure). As well as the usual winners' trophies, the #8 crew also claimed the Royal Automobile Club International Tourist Trophy, first awarded in 1905 and won by motorsport legends such as Tazio Nuvolari, Graham Hill and Stirling Moss. The pole-sitting #7 TS050 Hybrid of Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and José María López set the fastest lap of the race but lost over an hour due to an accident and finished 23rd. José María visited the circuit medical centre and then travelled to hospital for a precautionary scan which confirmed he suffered no injuries. Although the race started in cool, dry conditions and the two Toyotas ran in first and second, the weather soon intervened; after 45 minutes a shower struck and light rain fell intermittently after that. The team now prepares for the second round of the season, the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, the final race before the Le Mans 24 Hours. Spa will mark the first time Toyota has entered three hybrid-powered LMP1 cars, with Stéphane Sarrazin, Yuji Kunimoto and Nicolas Lapierre competing in the #9 TS050 Hybrid. Toshio Sato, Team President "This has been a dramatic race but the first priority is José María and we are all relieved that he is okay after the accident. Despite our strong performance in qualifying, we knew that Porsche would be a much tougher opponent in the race. The whole team performed well and fought right until the chequered flag. Of course it is disappointing not to have two cars on the podium but I am proud of the team for their determination and fighting spirit today, particularly the mechanics who worked so quickly to get the #7 car back on track. Overall I am satisfied with our high-downforce TS050 Hybrid, which showed strong performance throughout this week. Now we need to fine-tune our package for Spa-Francorchamps when we look forward to again fighting closely with Porsche at the front." 6 Hours of Silverstone results 1st #8 Toyota GAZOO Racing197 laps 2nd #2 Porsche (Bernhard / Bamber / Hartley)+6.173secs 3rd #1 Porsche (Jani / Lotterer / Tandy)+46.956secs 4th #38 DC Racing (Tung / Jarvis / Laurent)+13 laps 5th #31 Rebellion (Canal / Prost / Senna)+13 laps 6th #28 TDS (Perrodo / Vaxiviere / Collard)+14 laps 23rd #7 Toyota GAZOO Racing+38 lapsإكتشف
Toyota has once again achieved success in the 2017 Middle East Car of the Year (MECOTY) awards, the biggest and most prestigious awards program for the regional automotive sector. The Toyota Prius bagged the ‘Future of Motoring’ special category award, while the Toyota Fortuner was named the ‘Best Midsize SUV’. The winners were chosen by a jury of 15 independent motoring journalists from leading automotive publications throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Helping to mitigate the environmental effects of automobiles has long been a priority for Toyota. Based on the stance that environmentally-friendly vehicles can only truly have a significant positive impact if they are widely used, Toyota has encouraged the mass-market adoption of hybrid vehicles across the globe. Toyota launched Prius ? the world’s first mass-produced hybrid passenger vehicle ? in December 1997. Since then, Toyota hybrid vehicles (HV) have received tremendous support from consumers around the world. What makes the Prius particularly innovative is the presence of two power sources in the form of the sophisticated electric motor and petrol engine. Thanks to the harmonious blend of the twin power sources, the car moves off under full electric power right from the start, using no petrol at all, producing zero emissions and delivering exceptional performance. The owner does not even need to worry about charging the hybrid battery – the smart Prius will take care of it by charging it through the petrol engine or when braking and decelerating. At the same time, Toyota Fortuner, winner of the ‘Best Midsize SUV’ title, has rewritten the rules in its class with its rugged and tough styling, abundant family-friendly features and superb off-road capabilities and the award further underscores the prominent position it enjoys in this segment in the region.” The second-generation Toyota Fortuner, a 7-seater SUV with full-fledged 4WD capability, launched in the Middle East last year, builds on its heritage of being a durable sport utility vehicle (SUV) with impressive off-road capabilities. With the latest Fortuner, Toyota has focused on creating a more distinctive, sleek and powerful design while improving performance and adding a wide variety of intelligent features that increase convenience and safety, and that not only make the drive highly enjoyable and comfortable, but also a more refined way to get out there and explore.إكتشف
The all-new Toyota C-HR has secured the top five-star rating in independent Euro NCAP safety testing. On top of offering excellent occupant protection in case of an accident, the model also obtained very good results in active safety. The C-HR achieved an excellent 95 per cent score for overall adult occupant protection; 77 per cent for child occupants; 76 per cent for pedestrian protection performance; and 78 per cent for safety assist performance. In its report, Euro NCAP commended the new C-HR for its good result in the frontal offset test and for achieving maximum points in both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact. The Toyota C-HR’s crash test performance reflects the fundamental strength of its Toyota New Global Architecture-based platform and body, which make good use of strategic reinforcements and use of high-strength steels to absorb and channel impact forces away from the cabin.
