Toyota is able to combine compelling driving dynamics and a smooth ride with outstanding efficiency ratings like no other automaker, and they do so across their entire model lineup. From the spritely 106-hp 1.5L four-cylinder that enlivens the Yaris or the Corolla’s confident 140-hp powerhouse right up to the available 268-hp 3.5L V6 of the Camry and the Avalon, performance is always first-rate.
The Sienna even receives a standard 266-hp V6, so this family vehicle is deceptively powerful. For the more eco-conscious, both the Corolla and Avalon both offer hybrid powertrains, so you can cut the fuel-consumption without cutting the style.
Toyota designs their cars and minivans around the needs of their drivers, with each model featuring handy storage solutions and wide, roomy rear seats. Even the subcompact Yaris is able to offer up to 15.6 cubic feet of cargo space, while the 8-passenger Sienna delivers versatile second- and third-row seating options, dual power sliding doors, and a power liftgate. For drivers who prefer their vehicles to evoke a sense of refinement and luxury, handsome leather seating is available in the Camry, Avalon, and Sienna.
Each of Toyota’s cars and minivans offers drivers the automaker’s celebrated Entune digital interface system, which lets you control anything from Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity to available GPS navigation on a state-of-the-art touchscreen. The addition of apps has made this technology even more convenient — you can now make restaurant reservations with OpenTable, buy movie tickets with MovieTickets.com, and get news, sports scores, and stock prices. Further cutting-edge options include rear entertainment systems and Qi wireless charging platforms for your personal devices.
Agile, attractive, and utterly engaging, the Yaris embraces the efficiency you’d expect from a subcompact without giving way to the cheaper materials and substandard features that often characterize the class. Not many models make up to an estimated 37 mpg highway* while still offering such impressive amenities.
Now in its 11th generation, the Corolla is one of the world’s best-selling small sedans, and it’s still the go-to option for many Daytona Beach and Palm Coast drivers. A snappy drive and spacious interior enable the Corolla to accommodate numerous needs, and it’s also one of the most reliable models around.
The Camry’s spacious, well-appointed interior makes it a cut above the average midsized sedan. Available wood-grain accents and a high-end V6 engine also do their part, while a long list of features — including Dynamic Cruise Control — can deliver premium comfort, convenience, safety, and entertainment.
The Avalon is a premium sedan that is truly worthy of the name. It unites the reliability and performance of the Camry with upscale materials, using leather-trimmed seats, soft-touch materials, and French stitching to achieve a stunning environment, with available ambient lighting and tri-zone climate control helping to distinguish the Avalon from the competition.
With V6 power, room for eight, and highly versatile seating options, the Sienna is made for the whole family. Beyond mere practicality, the available Dual-View Blu-ray Disc Entertainment Center means the kids are never bored, while ultrasonic parking sensors make sure that maneuvering is a breeze. Both drivers and passengers have never had it so good.
The team at Beaver Toyota has seen these cars and minivans refined year-on-year, and they’ve developed a knack for pairing the right drivers with the right models.
