2012 CT200h – A little small, a little stiff and it provides loads of “curb appeal”.
Toyota Canada’s strong sales continued in August, as all-new vehicles and refreshed designs drove all three of its brands to establish best-ever August records for a number of models and segments.
Toyota Canada (TCI) reported sales of 17,556 Toyota, Lexus and Scion passenger cars, SUVs and trucks in August – up 25.3% from the same month in 2011. This included a new August record for trucks across all brands, up 42.4% to 8,164 (4th straight month of record sales) and strong sales of smaller vehicles such as the Toyota RAV4 and Scion models. Canadians continued to embrace TCI’s proven hybrid vehicles in record numbers – making a significant contribution to the segments in which TCI offers a hybrid option. In fact, Hybrids accounted for 7.5% of Toyota Canada sales for a new August record.
