The new Aygo sports an aggressive look overall with a, um, mark on its face. That distinguishing design feature aside, we quite like the angular headlights and muscular overall look of this little city car. The gaping trapezoidal air intake make the Aygo look more substantial, while swollen rear wheel arches hint at something sportier than your standard commuter device. Sportiness, though, isn’t likely to be a big part of the Aygo. As it’s built on the same platform as the Citro
Filed under: Budget , SUV , Marketing/Advertising , Toyota , Celebrities , Humor We previewed Toyota’s upcoming Super Bowl ad nearly a week ago, but with the big game just around the corner, the Japanese brand has now dropped the minute-long spot which will air on Sunday. As we said in that original post, the commercial stars Terry Crews from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the Muppets (mostly Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem band, as well as Gonzo and Rowlf) and the redesigned 2014 Toyota Highlander . We won’t spoil the premise, but suffice it to say that the Muppets’ goal of loosening Crews up is wildly successful. Make sure to watch through to the end for Animal’s take on Toyota’s motto, “Let’s go places.” We’ve got the full video down below , along with a press release from Toyota . Have a look and let us know what you think.

TORRANCE, Calif. (Nov. 4, 2013) –
Filed under: Aftermarket , SEMA Show , Crossover , Toyota In 2006, I bought a Scion xB (the super upright, first-generation one), and I always had this wild dream of turning the xBox into an aquarium after it had run its course in my personal test fleet. Long story short, that never happened. But apparently the folks at Toyota got wind of my idea – only, well, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. Let’s just start at the beginning here. This is a 2014 Toyota Highlander – you know, the redesigned one that bowed in New York earlier this year. I haven’t driven it yet, but I’m sure it’s plenty nice and will appeal to all sorts of families. Families with kids. Kids who like cartoons. Cartoons like Spongebob Squarepants . Which brings me to our next talking point: the collaboration between Toyota and Nickelodeon for the Spongebob-themed wrap that covers every inch of this Highlander.

But to help buyers counter this to the best of their abilities, ALG has released its 14th annual list of best bets for retained value. Toyota stands out from the crowd with nine total awards on the list, including its Scion and Lexus brands. But Honda took the top spot among mainstream brands with Hyundai second and Scion third. Subaru is fourth and Mazda fifth. In the premium brand rankings, Acura is ranked Number One, while Infiniti and Audi bring up second and third. In fourth place is Lexus and in fifth, Mercedes-Benz . Chevrolet is listed as number fifteen – last place on the mainstream list, while Lincoln is at the bottom of premium brands in tenth position. “Hyundai’s ascent as a brand is nothing short of impressive,” said Larry Dominique, president of ALG in a press release. “Since 2007, when the brand ranked in the bottom quartile for residual value, Hyundai has delivered well-executed product, and has kept incentives and fleet – two elements that can quickly damage residual value – in check.
