Consumer Guide Automotive

The stereotypical Subaru owner is an outdoorsy nature lover who’s at least a bit more environmentally conscious than the average American consumer, so it seems inevitable that Subaru would eventually enter the electric-vehicle market. And now it has. The 2023 Solterra is Subaru’s first pure EV: a two-row, five-passenger compact crossover SUV that is built on a platform shared with Toyota’s new bZ4X pure-electric SUV.

2023 Toyota GR Corolla

Today Toyota unveiled a rally-inspired high-performance version of its Corolla compact car—the 2023 GR Corolla—at an event in Long Beach, California. When it arrives later this year, the GR Corolla will be available in a base Core model. A limited-production Circuit Edition will join it in 2023, and it will be available for the 2023 model year only. The GR branding is used globally to identify Toyota’s sports cars—the letters stand for Gazoo Racing, which is Toyota’s in-house motorsports operation.

2020 Toyota Supra, 2021 Toyota Supra

2020 Toyota Supra

Note: The following story was excerpted from the February 2021 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Camaro ZL1Toyota’s sport-coupe history traces back to the 1967 2000GT, a handbuilt legend that sold only 62 copies in America. Then four generations of increasingly capable Supras were available in the States between 1979 and 1998. Reports of Supra’s return surfaced way back in 2012 when Toyota and BMW announced they would jointly develop a sports vehicle. Toyota’s result of the collaboration was indeed a renewed Supra that came out for 2020 and continues with some important changes for its second season.

Nissan Armada Vs Toyota Sequoia

2022 Nissan Armada Midnight Edition vs 2022 Toyota Sequoia Nightshade

The full-size SUV segment has seen a lot of activity in the last couple model years. Jeep got back into the category in a big way with the revival of its Wagoneer model (and luxury-trimmed Grand Wagoneer version) for 2022. General Motors rolled out a formidable roster of all-new SUVs for 2021—the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, and GMC Yukon. And Ford treated its Expedition (which was redesigned for 2018) to a heavy refresh for ‘22 that includes updated styling, upgraded tech and infotainment features, and an off-road-oriented Timberline model.
