Four very different Toyota vehicles were named “Top Rated Vehicles” by Do you drive any of them? It’s the Toyota Prius, Avalon, Highlander and Sienna that were rated on top.

Seven Toyota models were also honored for being one of the 2014 Most Popular on in their respective segments. The winners in their segments included:

  • RAV4: Compact Crossover SUV
  • Tacoma: Compact Truck
  • Avalon: Large Car
  • Tundra: Large Truck

  • Highlander: Midsize Crossover SUV
  • Sienna: Minivan

The Edmunds Testing Team is the intelligent group that determines the Top Rated Vehicle Awards and they evaluate about 200 cars each year.
