How to connect your smartphone to Toyota Bluetooth

We don’t remember a time when there wasn’t a radio in our cars, but we’re sure it must have been an innovation. Can you picture driving down the highway, with very little sound reduction technology, just listening to the sound of the wind and the mechanical happenings under your hood? Honestly, it sounds a bit horrifying when you consider how loud old cars were. We not only take our radio for granted, but we’ve come a long way since tape decks or even CD players. With Bluetooth, we have full access to the audio entertainment available on our phones. You just need to know how to connect your smartphone to the Bluetooth in your Toyota to unlock the possibilities. Read the rest of this entry »

2018 TeenDrive365 People’s Choice Vote

In case you’re not aware, April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Though we’re sure everyone out there has had their fair share of chaos behind the wheel, it isn’t drunk driving, reckless driving, road rage, weather conditions or speeding that is the number one culprit in most vehicular accidents. No. It’s drivers simply not paying attention, whether it’s fiddling with the radio, eating or checking a text message. Those most at risk are teens, who have less experience behind the wheel and possibly more temptations. For this reason, Toyota started the TeenDrive365 challenge, which is currently running for the 2017-2018 season. The top 10 finalists have been selected, and now is the time to pick your winner for the People’s Choice award. Read the rest of this entry »

All-new 2019 Toyota RAV4 updates

It seems 2019 will be the year of Toyota, as we’re almost starting to feel overwhelmed by just how much will be new and fresh next year. Which, in the automotive world, is just around the corner. Not only is the Avalon heading into its fifth-generation, but we’re seeing refreshed packages for the Toyota Corolla Hatchback and the Yaris Sedan. Now one of the biggest players in the lineup, the all-new 2019 Toyota RAV4 is coming soon. Here are the key updates for the redesign. Read the rest of this entry »

2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan standard features

When Scion was discontinued, it left Toyota in a bit of a scramble to decide what to do with outgoing models. Should the brand keep the favorites? Well, this was the case with select options, like the Toyota Yaris iA, which was previously the Scion iA. Now that it has been a part of the lineup for a few years now and proved itself a success, Toyota is officially keeping the model around. This means dropping the old naming structure and simply calling it the 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan. So what are the features now that it’s fully integrated into the lineup? Read the rest of this entry »

The hatchback is, well, back! This isn’t to say it has been missing from the Toyota lineup, as the Yaris has been available since the late 90s. The 2018 Corolla iM, a successor of the Scion iM, has allowed for a wider selection of options in the lineup. Was a carryover really going to entice shoppers long-term? Toyota clearly isn’t resting on its laurels, as seen by the unveiling of the upcoming 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback at the 2018 NYIAS. Read the rest of this entry »

First look at the 2019 Toyota RAV4

The first Toyota RAV4 made it the U.S. for the 1995 model year, which is relatively young for the automotive world. Still, we consider it a staple as it was just the start of the popularity of crossover SUVs. Still, with turnover as fast as it is in the market, it only makes sense for a brand to produce frequent changes. The RAV4, however, hasn’t had a complete overhaul since 2012. Its last facelift was for the 2016 model year. All that said, we’re excited for what’s coming because 2019 is the year for a new generation 2019 Toyota RAV4. We don’t know much now, but we do have a teaser image that serves as a sort of first look at the model. Read the rest of this entry »
