A company which has built its success on the reliability of its cars, Toyota is one of the world's largest car makers. The Toyota Corolla is the world's best-selling car with over 30 million sold, although that's across 10 distinct generations. In the UK the model has been replaced by the Toyota Auris, which sells alongside models such as the Yaris and Aygo.

Toyota was also the first to sell hybrid cars in big numbers, its Prius easily the world's best-selling hybrid and now on sale in third-generation form. Other long-standing models from the company include the Toyota Avensis, Celica, Land Cruiser and Hi-Lux.
