A car built at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Derbyshire plant has been named as the best used car.
At the recent Car Dealer awards in London, the Toyota Corolla, which is manufactured at the firm’s Burnaston factory, was named Used Car of the Year.
In addition, the hybrid electric Hatchback and Touring Sports models were honoured with the award for Best Alternative Fuel Vehicle.
James Baggott, editor-in-chief at Car Dealer, said: “Toyota has pioneered hybrid technology over the past 25 years and it’s great to see its dedication paying off.
“The Corolla makes for a great used car buy and dealers love selling them – in many ways it has become the archetypal hybrid car over the past few years.
“Its powertrain is one of the finest hybrid systems around, and it’s a top choice for those considering greener motoring but who don’t want a fully electric hatchback.”
