List of Rear-wheel-drive Toyota Cars
In the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, we have seen a lot of awesome rear-wheel-drive (RWD) cars built by famous car brands. In recent years, most of the car models that used to rear-wheel-drive have been redesigned to front-wheel-drive (FWD). This is because front wheel drive cars are more profitable compared to rear wheel drive cars. It is also the reason FR (front-engine, rear-wheel-drive) layout is now reserved for expensive car models only. Now here’s a list of rear-wheel-drive cars made by Toyota over the years. It is sorted from A to Z. The production year for some models is mentioned too.
