The 2019 Chicago Auto Show features an array of heavy-duty trucks, smaller trucks, other kinds of trucks, and well, more trucks. That means new versions of the 2020 Chevy Silverado Heavy Duty and 2020 Ford F-150 Super Duty, a refreshed 2020 Toyota Tacoma and a trick tailgate on the 2019 Ram 1500. Here's some impressions, plus our take on the 2020 Subaru Legacy sedan.
— Toyota updated the 2020 Tacoma with some light but useful enhancements. An improved infotainment has new audio features and larger screens. The grilles and wheels are different, but nothing drastic. Toyota still offers nice differentiation across the Tacoma lineup, and the design tweaks are subtle but thoughtful. Toyota tends to stretch out the Tacoma's generations, so it's wise to keep modifying and iterating to keep pace in this competitive segment.
We are big fans of the Toyota Prius+. Spacious, economical and packed with the latest technology, it's the only hybrid-engined MPV available in the UK and is a brilliant demonstration of Toyota's leadership in this field.
Here, we take a look at how the car was received by the first journalists and reviewers to drive the car.
Top billing has to go to Autocar Magazine's five star road test report – one of just three five-star reviews the magazine has conducted this year. In the article, Autocar says;
Jesse Cross of Car Magazine awarded the Yaris Hybrid a score of four stars in his review, after enjoying the refined and quiet nature of the car:
"The powertrain is refined and in EV only mode, virtually silent. There's nothing happening at rest either, so all-in-all the Yaris Hybrid delivers a serene driving experience ideal for urban commutes."
