Consumer Reports: These Toyota Models Can Go for 200,000 Miles and Beyond

It goes without saying that Toyota is an incredibly reliable car brand. Just what makes Toyota so reliable? For starters, the carmaker is known for prioritizing functionality over frills and for being meticulous when it comes to adding new upgrades. Toyotas are also known for having fewer mechanical issues over time. With the help of Consumer Reports, we have gathered a list of the most dependable Toyota vehicles that can go for 200,000 miles and beyond with the proper care.

Toyota Camry

Consumer Reports Reliability Score: 4/5

The Toyota Camry is practically synonymous with car reliability. This model is acclaimed for its comfort and easy-to-use technology features. The Camry is known for being a family car, but Toyota is aiming to diversify the sedan’s appeal with Toyota Racing Development, which offers a flashier driving experience. In 2020, the Camry has been redesigned with a trendier style and better fuel efficiency.

Toyota Sienna 

Consumer Reports Reliability Score: 4/5

If you have a big family, the Sienna is a practical option to get your group around. Even if you aren’t a huge minivan fan, your family will love the space the Sienna offers and you will like its adaptability for short rides and long hauls. Toyota aimed to spice up the minivan in 2020 with available AWD and upgraded technology.

Toyota Prius 

Consumer Reports Reliability Score: 5/5

The beloved Prius is a great hybrid to buy, new or used. CR recognizes the 2020 Prius as a “phenomenal achievement” for its fuel economy of up to 58 city / 53 highway mpg. The hatchback’s styling is quirky and polished. The Prius can handle most driving situations smoothly and sharply. You’ll love the Prius for its overall value, advanced powertrain, and of course, its eco-friendly nature.

Toyota 4Runner

Consumer Reports Reliability Score: 5/5

If you’re looking for a rambunctious Toyota with off-roading capabilities then the 4Runner is for you. Seriously, that’s what the 4Runner is known for and not much else. This vehicle is designed for rocky adventures, not city cruising. Still, this rowdy ride has enough predictable features to make it a decent everyday ride. As far as the 2020 model goes, CR docked off points for how expensive the SUV’s equipment can get, as well as for its loud engine.

Toyota Tundra

Consumer Reports Reliability Score: 4/5

The Tundra boasts a 5.7-liter V8 engine that’s lively and robust. This pickup got CR’s stamp of approval for being the most dependable full-size truck on the market. You’ll appreciate its off-roading and towing capabilities along with its safety features. Toyota has clearly relied on the if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it mantra since the Tundra has basically looked the same since 1999.

Toyota Highlander

Consumer Reports Reliability Score: 4/5

As far as transporting your family or cargo goes, the Highlander is a sleeker option than the Sienna and offers three rows of seating.  The 2020 model is understated and offers comfortable styling along with a  V6 engine that will get you from 0-60 mph in about 7 seconds.
