Toyota Corolla scoops ‘Best Small Sedan’ title at 2018 Middle East Car of the Year awards

by | News

DUBAI: Adding a new feather in its cap, the 2018 Toyota Corolla has been recently honored with the recognition for the best car in the “Small Sedan” category at the 2018 Middle East Car of the Year (MECOTY) awards, the biggest and most prestigious awards program for the regional automotive sector.

The most successful production car model ever built was chosen by a judging panel comprised of 16 independent senior editors from leading automotive publications representing the Middle East and North Africa.

The 12th generation Toyota Corolla emerged as the winner after impressing the judges on ten aspects that have been set as the selection criteria for the fifth edition of MECOTY. These included design and quality, exterior and interior, handling and drivability, safety and durability, performance and capability, technological innovation, emotional appeal and driver satisfaction, value for money (new purchase and resale), environmental performance, regional appeal, and comfort and practicality.

The new 2018 Toyota Corolla was launched in the region in July last year and is available with a Multidrive 7S transmission to offer improved efficiency and driving pleasure. The Toyota Corolla also features a modern and dynamic design, a premium interior and an array of safety features such as Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), A Tire Pressure Warning System (TPWS), Rear Fog Lamps, and is also available in eight different exterior colors. All these features help the Toyota Corolla stand out in its segment.

Since its launch in Japan in 1966, more than 44 million units of Corolla have been sold globally to date to establish itself as the best-selling nameplate in the world. With its 16 manufacturing plants, Toyota currently produces 1.5 million Corolla cars each year to reach its customers in more than 150 different markets.

Toyota, a Japanese automotive manufacturer founded in 1937, is the world’s market leader in sales of hybrid electric vehicles.
Toyota is exclusively distributed in the UAE by the Al-Futtaim Automotive Division, part of Al-Futtaim Group, for over 6 decades, and has been leading the sustainable mobility movement since 2008.

In addition to the large line-up of vehicles ranging from SUV, compact, sedan, coupe, MPV and LCV options, Al-Futtaim Toyota introduced Camry Electric Hybrid Vehicle (HEV) in 2008 to taxi operator fleets, in an effort to actively contribute to a lower carbon footprint in the UAE.
