Aries (March 21 – April 19): GR 86
Aries is one of the sportiest star signs, with a love of all things dynamic and active. A typical Arien lives in the present, full of energy and always helping others, but they are also highly competitive. The ideal car for someone living under this star sign needs to be quick and eye-catching, and hot off the production line, so they can be among the first to experience it. The new GR 86, developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing, fits the bill. It has the power to match its looks and will be arriving in the UK soon.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Corolla Hybrid Touring Sports
Beauty, creativity and family are important to Taurus, and those born under this sign typically have many life-long friends. As an Earth sign, they enjoy being spontaneous, but they also like to put well-made plans into action. Either way, they are happiest when on the move, so they need a car that they can pack up and go, like a Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid. It has great fuel economy and low CO2 emissions, a sleek design and spacious interior. It’s dependable, generous and stylish – just like Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21): Aygo
Who wants to blend in with the crowd? Not Geminis, who are creative thinkers, always unique and not afraid to stand out. They are outgoing, fun-loving, and enjoy being impulsive. With its bold colour highlights and compact design, Aygo is a head-turner and an ideal companion, whether nipping through the city or heading out with friends. As an Air sign, Gemini values freedom and independence, which Aygo delivers in spades.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Highlander
Cancerians are loyal and dependable souls. They are renowned for their intuition and charisma and do their best to look out for their family and friends. They need a vehicle that’s as big-hearted as they are, like the new Highlander Excel SUV. With its roomy seven-seat interior there’s space and comfort for everyone on board. It’s also a joy to drive, featuring smooth, quiet and efficient hybrid electric technology, a panoramic roof and a premium JBL sound system.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): GR Yaris
Warm-hearted and very generous, Leos love the finer things in life – not only for themselves, but for others too. They choose their friends wisely, and they can’t resist the latest gadgets and tech. Their ideal car is powerful and out-of-the-ordinary – like the new, rally-inspired GR Yaris, a hot hatch with impeccable style. Its aerodynamic design and advanced technology were developed with the Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team, and under its bonnet there’s one of the most powerful three-cylinder engines ever built.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Hilux
Virgos are steadfast and determined, and always give 100 per cent – in friendships, relationships and their career. They appreciate things that have stood the test of time and that are reliable and trustworthy, so the Hilux pick-up is a perfect choice as a vehicle that won’t let you down. Hilux has proved its strength and resilience since 1968, and the new model is the most capable yet, on or off road.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): bZ4X
Librans love peace and harmony and will go out of their way to avoid conflict (this star sign’s symbol is a set of balanced scales). They are diplomatic and strive for fairness and are probably the most environmentally minded of all the star signs. Toyota’s new battery electric vehicles (BEVs) will appeal to their values, with the bZ4X leading the pack. Set to be released in 2022, this all-electric SUV encapsulates Toyota’s global aim to be carbon neutral by 2050.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): CHR GR Sport
Cool, calm, and natural leaders, Scorpios are happy to take control and are very sociable. They are devoted to their family and friends, who are naturally drawn to their warm and witty personality. Although naturally thrifty, they enjoy a few little luxuries too, such as the C-HR GR Sport, whose hybrid engine proves that you don’t need high emissions to enjoy powerful performance. With its sharply styled bodywork and black alloy wheels, it’s style will be the perfect fit for a Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Land Cruiser
Sagittarians are spontaneous, fun and great travellers, always looking for the next destination or adventure. They are constantly curious, so need a vehicle that can take them anywhere, like a Land Cruiser, whose off-road prowess spans more than 65 years. The latest model has a muscular 2.8-litre four-cylinder engine and adapts seamlessly to its surroundings, whether high-rolling in the city, or getting muddy in the countryside.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid
Practicality and dependability are important to Capricorns; they appreciate loyal friends and an organised life. They also lean towards innovation and ground-breaking ideas, and respect meticulous craftsmanship, so the RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid is a perfect choice. Its plug-in hybrid electric powertrain gives low-emissions certified fuel economy of 282.4mpg – so you can travel further and longer, for less.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Yaris Cross
Adventurous and free-thinking, Aquarians thrive on independence and rarely follow the crowd. They value human connection but are often happiest in their own company. They are drawn to both the city and countryside, so they’ll need a vehicle that’s suited to both environments. Meet the all-new Yaris Cross, a small SUV, which combines an intelligent all-wheel drive system with cleaner hybrid power and offers a choice of two premium multimedia options.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Mirai
Friendly, selfless and romantic, Pisceans are one of the most artistic zodiac signs. They love to feel wild and free and are never afraid to embrace new ideas, like the ground-breaking new Mirai, with its zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell technology. A true pioneer, it makes its own electric power using hydrogen and air, producing no emissions other than pure water (a Pisces element). With endurance, beauty and zero emissions, it’s the perfect vehicle for a Piscean.
