Toy­ota snares top car awards

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS - PA­TRICK GEE

THE “sleek and sick” Toy­ota GR Supra GTS took out its cat­e­gory in the Aus­tralia’s Best Cars re­view this year.

More than 180 cars tested on value for money, de­sign and func­tion, and on road per­for­mance.

RACT spokesman Darren Moody, one of eight judges from auto clubs across Aus­tralia, said safety was a key in the award.

The field was nar­rowed to 47 fi­nal­ists, tested back-to­back by the judges across 13 cat­e­gories and eval­u­ated against 21 cri­te­ria.

Mr Moody said Toy­ota was a big win­ner this year, winning five cat­e­gories.

“Toy­ota’s ever-pop­u­lar Corolla won a cat­e­gory for the first time,” he said.

The 2020 model Toy­ota Supra, pic­tured, took out the Best Sports Car be­tween $62,000-$125,000 cat­e­gory.
