Toyota Dealership Awards

Maple Toyota is proud to be a part of the Toyota legacy. We have always known Toyota is the car you want by your side when looking for luxury, comfort, advanced technology, reliability, functionality, fun, and adventure. We know Toyota owners love their cars. And as it turns out, the critics do, too. Maple Toyota is honoured to showcase some of the awards and recognition the Toyota brand has received.



Canadian Black Book has been Canada's trusted resource for information on Used Vehicle value for over 50 years. Since they introduced their annual Best Retained Value Awards, no manufacturer has won as many Awards as Toyota. Winners are established from actual value retained from MSRP measured over four years. 

For 2020, Best Retained Value Award was given to the Camry (mid-size car), Avalon (full-size car), Tacoma (small pick-up), Tundra (full-size pick-up), Sienna (minivan), 4Runner (mid-size SUV), and Sequoia (full-size crossover / SUV).





The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety administers vehicle tests to evaluate two facets of safety:

  • Crash mitigation and avoidance - technology that can avert a collision or lessen its severity
  • Crashworthiness - how well a car protects its occupants in a crash

The cars that perform best in the tests qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+. For 2020, four Toyota vehicles were awarded TOP SAFETY PICK (Corolla Hatchback, Corolla, RAV4, and Highlander). At the same time, the Camry was given the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award.



The AJAC Canadian Car of the Year Awards is presented annually to the best new vehicles in various categories. The GR Supra received this award in the Sports-Performance Car category in 2020 and the Prius Prime for Best Green Innovation Award in 2018.





Natural Resources Canada recognizes the most fuel-efficient vehicles sold in Canada. Best-in-class cars have the lowest combined fuel consumption rating, based on 55% city and 45% highway driving. To find out what seven Toyota vehicles were given this prestigious award in 2020, Contact Us.

The Avalon, Corolla Hybrid, Highlander Hybrid, Sienna, and Tacoma each received Best Value in Canada within their vehicle class category for 2020.
