Toyota Yaris is the 2021 European Car of the Year

Selected by a jury of 59 automotive journalists from across Europe, the fourth generation Yaris receives the award 21 years after the first generation was named European Car of the Year in 2000, a first for Toyota. The Yaris has also consistently been recognized by the Car of the Year jury with every generation of the model making the award’s shortlist.

The jury praised Yaris’ hybrid technology for its smooth driving, low emissions and accessible price point – illustrating why more than 80 percent of Yaris buyers choose the hybrid powertrain.

Yaris was also recognized for its design, dynamic performance, and class-leading safety.

Furthermore, the European Car of the Year jury particularly appreciated Toyota’s success in re-igniting passion for the hot hatch market across Europe with the launch of the GR Yaris.

The 2021 European Car of the Year award comes just a few days after the new Yaris was named as the best-selling car in Europe for the first time, a clear sign that European customers agree with the Car of the Year jury.

Toyota has been awarded with European Car of the Year three times. Yaris won in 2000, Prius took top honors in 2005, and now Yaris has lifted the trophy again in 2021.
