Toyota Australia axes TRD brand

Toyota Australia has pulled the plug on its TRD performance brand, citing the current global financial crisis as the determining factor. Just 888 TRD vehicles have been delivered since the brand was established in Australia, with the last model set to roll off the production line on March 31, 2009. The TRD Aurion accounted for 537 of this total since it was first launched 16 months ago, while the TRD HiLux sold 351 units in a much shorter space of time.

Toyota HiLux tops April sales

The figures are in and Australia's best selling car for April didn't have a Holden or Ford badge - and it wasn't a Corolla. The Toyota HiLux instead reigned supreme, with sales of 3814 vehicles, up 27.1 per cent on April 2007. Despite our love for the iconic Australian ute, this is the first time one has ever topped the monthly sales chart, just ahead of the Corolla with 3722 sales in second place.

How can you possibly not like the look of the TRD Aurion?

Three writers at Car Advice including myself have written reviews on Toyota’s controversial TRD Aurion and I was the only to sing the car’s praises. It’s probably an age thing. I’m over 40 and Paul and Alborz are under 30. That must be it.
