Following months of vehicle testing, public voting and statistical analysis, the 2020 Auto Trader Car of the Year (SA COTY) winners have been identified in an unprecedented virtual awards ceremony.

As the only manufacturer to have three nominees in this year’s running, Toyota’s three contenders; (Corolla Hatch, RAV4 and GR Supra) stood tall amongst a variety of candidates -ranging from small city cars to large-SUV and double-cab bakkies. We are delighted to have received the following three accolades:
Family category winner:Corolla Hatch 1.2T XR CVT
Sports/Performance category winner: GR Supra 3.0T
Third place overall: GR Supra 3.0T
 Toyota would like to thank Auto Trader, the SAGMJ, our loyal customers and the South African public for their continued support. Winning two categories and a Top 3 overall placing is testament to the confidence that South African motorists place in our products and we are truly honoured.
