The 2024 Toyota lineup features some of the most advanced and capable vehicles. Toyota has a long history of producing some of the most reliable cars. It’s become a norm that everything with the T logo is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Remember the lyrics of the famous Cyndi Lauper song “ Time After Time? Toyota reliability is like the chorus’—if your car is lost, you can look and you will find it running smoothly, time after time. (*clears throat*) Okay, I admit. That was a bit of a stretch. But you get it. The brand’s reputation is only getting better, especially with its new releases. And we’re here to present you with the best 15 Toyota cars tobuy in 2024. 

Our list covers the latest Toyota vehicles, ranging from beloved SUVs to redesigned sedans, and everything in between. Pretty much anything with a motor and a Toyota Emblem. From fuel efficiency to cutting-edge safety features, we present a buying guide to help you navigate the 2024 Toyota lineup.

Here are the best Toyota cars of 2024. 

2024 Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 is among the most successful SUVs in the world. It’s a best-selling crossover and many people’s top choice in 2024. There are several reasons to love the latest RAV4. Aside from the famed and reliable engine selections, the 2024 RAV4 has an impressive appeal. Unlike the previous versions, the new RAV4’s design takes its inspiration from the Toyota truck. We particularly love the hybrid RAV4 2024 version, which combines the same SUV practicality with fuel efficiency. 

The 2024 Toyota RAV4 five-seater SUV comes in a total of 13 trim levels. The most popular 2024 model is the Hybrid XLE AWD. For a starting MSRP of $34,585, the Hybrid XLE AWD offers a Hybrid 2.5L I4 engine with an all-terrain-gripping all-wheel drive configuration. According to estimates, this RAV4 will get 41 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. For 2024, the Toyota RAV4 competes with the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-50. 

2024 Toyota Crown

Deputed in 2023, the Toyota Crown is a sedan car that makes a compelling case for itself. In addition to being roomy, the sedan offers visibility and seating akin to an SUV. It also includes an all-wheel drive for improved traction on slippery roads and two hybrid engine options to help raise fuel economy. The Crown is enjoyable to drive, has superb technology features, and is expected to achieve high fuel efficiency. With its unique design, the 2024 Toyota Crown combines all-wheel drive and hybrid efficiency. There are three trim levels available for the five-seater Toyota Crown. The most popular model is the Limited, which begins at $47,045 and has a Hybrid 2.5L I4 engine and all-wheel drive. 

In terms of fuel economy, the Toyota Crown delivers 42 MPG in the city and 41 MPG on the highway. The competition is also very stiff this time around. The 2024 Toyota Crown competes with other top sedans like the Honda Accord hybrid, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, and the Honda Accord Hybrid.

2024 Toyota Prius

Ever since the 2023 Toyota Prius redesign, the Prius has attracted a lot of attention. We’re not sure if it’s because of the new spaceship design or the fuel efficiency. Though, to be frank, the first option seems more plausible in this scenario. Aside from the fresh design, the Prius retains all the factors that made it a success from the get-go; simplicity and efficiency of up to 57 MPG. The 2024 Toyota Prius is a carryover from the redesigned 2023 Prius and it has all the same perks, plus more features

The 2024 Prius’ sleek design trades some internal space for sporting proportions, with a lengthy front fascia, sloping roof, and shorter rear sections. The interior also feels more natural, with less odd tech design. Of the Prius’ three trim levels, the most desired trim is the XLE FWD. This model has a starting price of $32,490 and has a hyper-efficient Hybrid 2.0L Inline-4 engine with an estimated 52 MPG in the city and 52 MPG on the highway.

The 2024 Toyota Prius challenges the Kia Niro hybrid, the Hyundai Elantra hybrid, and Toyota’s own Corolla hybrid sedan.

2023 Toyota GR86

For years, the Toyota GR86 has been a highly sought-after 4-seater sports car, particularly in the United States and in the European market. It has always been the quick, light, and agile sports car offered at a reasonable price. But, recently, the GR86 felt like it wasn’t living up to its initial reputation. Luckily, Toyota redesigned the 2023 GR86, correcting some of its flaws. Last year’s complete makeover provided more power, a fresh interior design, and greater handling. Since this edit, the GR86 re-established itself on the market as a sports car bargain. 

Of its three available trim levels, the most popular 2024 GR86 trim is the Premium Automatic, which has a starting price of $33,595. Expect the 2024 Toyota GR86 to deliver 21 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.

2024 Toyota Corolla Cross

The Corolla Cross is like the time when chess evolved from 2D to 3D, maintaining the essence of the classic gameplay but in a new dimension. The 5-seater Toyota Corolla Cross is what you would get if the Toyota RAV4 and the Corolla Sedan had a baby. The 2024 Toyota Corolla Cross seamlessly combines the standout features of the Corolla sedan/hatchback with the versatile body style of a crossover SUV, living up to its name. But, hey, the crossover’s sedan-SUV blend works for anyone who can forgive the sluggish base engine. 

Of the seven total trim levels, we recommend the Hybrid XSE AWD. This model has a starting price of $32,755 and comes with one of the liveliest hybrid engines we’ve ever driven: a Hybrid 2.0L Inline-4 engine. As for the fuel economy, the 2024 Toyota Corolla Cross delivers approximately 45 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway.

2024 Toyota Grand Highlander

There are several reasons to love the newest 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander. The expansive third-row area is one of the 2024 Grand Highlander’s distinguishing features, setting it apart from the standard Highlander. This update is a result of a revised TNGA-K platform, which incorporates a larger track and a longer wheelbase. Way to separate the boys from the men, Toyota! Also, it’s among the largest and most premium 7-seater SUVs in the game right now. As if the SUV part alone wasn’t enough to get our hearts craving, there’s just something about the words “Premium SUV” that gives us a luxury feeling. On top of that,  the 2024 Grand Highlander has a large cargo area, if you can forgive the 5,000-pound towing capacity.

The new Toyota Grand Highlander is a smart, fuel-efficient choice and is packed with the latest infotainment, safety, and driver-assist technology. After taking a look at the entire 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander lineup, we recommend the popular XLE AWD, with a 2.4-liter Inline-4 Turbo engine and a $46,065 price tag.

2024 Toyota GR Supra

The Toyota GR Supra is the sportiest 2-seater Toyota you can get your hands on. The 2024 Toyota GR Supra proves that Toyota’s expertise extends beyond the realms of Corollas, and Camrys. You know; the cars are known for fuel efficiency. And for the 2024 model year, Toyota elevates its famous sports car to new heights. 

With its stylish coupe shape, scintillating power and speed, and nimble handling, the 2024 Toyota GR Supra makes a compelling alternative to rival European two-seat sports cars. 

We love the 3.0 Premium Manual, which has a potent 3.0-liter Inline-6 Turbo engine that sends power to all wheels. Starting at $59,645, this GR Supra is estimated to achieve approximately 19 MPG in city driving and 27 MPG on the highway.

The 2024 Toyota GR Supra competes with specialized performance vehicles like the Nissan Z and Porsche 718 Cayman, as well as V8 muscle cars such as the Ford Mustang.

2024 Toyota GR Corolla

Now wait a minute. You might see the “Corolla” name and confuse this with a typical fuel-efficient Corolla. But the Toyota GR Corolla is no ordinary car. The GR Corolla is what you would get if you reimaged a Corolla for the fast lane, designed to feed the appetite of speed aficionados. In other words, the GR Corolla is the performance variant of the Corolla family. But unlike the rest, the GR comes in a hatchback shape. 

As a performance hot hatch version, the 2024 Toyota GR Corolla packs a punch and is ready to take on the drag strip. The most popular of its three available trim levels is the $41,415 Premium trim. This Premium GR Corolla comes with a peppy, yet efficient turbocharged 1.6L Inline-3 that is guaranteed to deliver a fuel economy of 21 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.

2024 Toyota Sequoia

The Toyota Sequoia underwent a complete redesign last year, elevating it to a more formidable position among full-size SUVs. With enhanced performance, cutting-edge technology, and a more practical interior, it has become an exceptional family vehicle.

Entering its second year with the latest design, the 2024 Toyota Sequoia continues to showcase its robust capabilities in a stylish full-size SUV package. Notably, it stands apart as a true SUV, sharing its foundation with the Toyota Tundra full-size truck rather than adopting the crossover guise.

Of the 2024 Toyota Sequoia models, we recommend the Platinum 4WD, which has the same great shape and style, but more capabilities. It does have a $78,715, which is steep. On the bright side, this money unlocks a Hybrid 3.4-liter V6 Twin-Turbo engine and Four Wheel Drive. In terms of fuel economy, the Sequoia delivers 19 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway.

2024 Toyota Tundra

The Tundra is a Toyota’s beloved 5-seater SUV that made a name for itself years ago. For the 2022 model year, the Tundra was redesigned into a more modern and capable pickup truck. Now in 2024, the Tundra continues to prove that it’s an ideal pickup truck. The 2024 Toyota Tundra impresses with its versatility, providing a variety of layouts and engine options to meet a variety of requirements. The Tundra’s powerful engines, combined with a pleasant interior and a slew of extras, help it compete in the 2024 pickup market.

With up to 10 trim levels on offer, there’s a Tundra for everyone. Although, if you’re having trouble picking, go for the popular SR5 CrewMax 5.5′ Bed 4WD. It’s versatile, costs  $52,400, and has a twin-turbo 3.4-liter V6 under the hood. Expect a fuel economy of 17 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway from this model, which is fair for a working truck. 

2024 Toyota Sienna

2024-toyota-sienna-versatile-family-minivan

Minivans are less popular than they used to be, proven by a drop in interest in both the European and American markets. Still, despite all this, there are several Minivans that are still popular and proving that they are ideal family vehicles. One of these Minivans is the 2024 Toyota Sienna. 

The 2024 Sienna demonstrates Toyota’s commitment to hybrid technology, making it an eco-friendly option for families. With its stylish interior and practical features, it’s a solid choice for those seeking efficient and comfortable transportation. Yet, it’s worth noting that it doesn’t match the power of some rivals and has a bit less cargo space overall. 

If you’re looking for a spacious 7-seater, the Toyota Sienna offers choices to fit your needs. We love the Platinum AWD 7-Passenger version, which comes with a  Hybrid 2.5L I4 engine that’s able to give you a fuel efficiency of 35 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. Expect to pay around $55,300 for the 2024 Toyota Sienna Platinum AWD trim. 

2024 Toyota RAV4 Prime

Toyota recently previewed the latest edition of the famous hybridized RAV4, the 2024 RAV4 Prime. Unlike the hybrid version of the base RAV4, the Toyota RAV4 Prime takes the RAV4’s capabilities to the next level. But after a redesign just last year, the 2024 RAV4 is a carryover. Likely, the 2025 Toyota RAV4 will not have any new cosmetic changes either. Anyway. The 2024 Toyota RAV4 Prime retains the roominess and usefulness of the RAV4 crossover. It also adds a fuel-efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain with an outstanding all-electric driving range.

It’s one of the most excellent five-seater SUVs you can come across. And if you do come across it, we recommend the XSE trim, which comes with a plug-in Hybrid 2.5L Inline-4 engine and an all-wheel drive configuration. As a hybrid and more efficient crossover across the Toyota Line, the 2024 RAV4 Prime will deliver 40 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. The RAV4 also competes with PHEV versions of the Kia Niro and the Hyundai Tucson. 

2024 Toyota Corolla

A longtime member of Toyota’s lineup for almost 60 years, the Corolla continues to be a top-selling compact in the U.S. This popularity is owed to its reliable performance, practical utility, and good value. With the 2024 Toyota Corolla, Toyota keeps improving this winning formula.

In my view, the Toyota Corolla’s enduring success is well-deserved. Its reputation for reliability and practicality, plus continuous improvement, makes it a standout choice in the compact car segment. 

The 2024 Toyota Corolla has all the latest tech and safety systems you can ever ask for. And the engines are nothing short of great. 

In terms of excitement, the Corolla might not turn heads. It’s the strong value proposition and fuel efficiency that make the 2024 Toyota Corolla a practical and sensible choice for many drivers. The LE CVT variant is particularly popular among buyers. This model features a 2.0L I4 engine that delivers 32 MPG in the city and 41 MPG on the highway. 

2024 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry’s reliability and efficiency reputations have spread across the entire globe. The Camry is among the most long-lasting and beloved sedans on the market. Whether you are purchasing a new or used model, you get a vehicle you can depend on. And that’s no different for the newest Toyota Camry release. 

The 2024 Toyota Camry is a great family car with lots of features, good performance, and high safety ratings. It’s the perfect family sedan. The 2024 Camry fits five people, has efficient engines, and all the things you’d expect in a modern family car. With 13 versions to choose from (ranging from basic to fancy), there’s a Camry for everyone. 

We admire the SE Automatic FWD, which has a 2.5L I4 engine. This Camry is estimated to deliver 28 MPG in the city and 39 MPG on the highway. The 2025 Camry is on the way too, and it combines two features you wouldn’t expect.

2023 Toyota bZ4X

After dominating the SUV and sedan markets with its RAV4 and Prius respectively, Toyota entered the battery-electric segment with the all-new bZ4X SUV. We admit that we thought the name was odd too. But after learning that it stands for “beyond Zero, small crossover,” we thought “That’s right.” That said, the Toyota bZ4X is one of the most unique 5-seater SUVs right now. It will stand out on every road you travel on in 2024.  

The 2023 Toyota bZ4X offers a pleasant driving experience, a roomy interior, and a suite of modern features. However, it falls short of class leadership due to its comparatively lesser range, and slower charging speeds. It also comes at slightly higher prices when compared to most rivals. The Limited AWD variant, priced at a starting point of $50,130, is the most sought-after style. This bZ4X is anticipated to achieve an estimated 112 MPGe in city driving and 92 MPGe on the highway.
