Vehicle Development Report1

For every road in the world

Automobiles are not always driven on well-paved roads. Toyota conducts testing by recreating poor road conditions akin to those that exist around the world including flagstones, gravel roads, inclined roads, flooded roads, snow-covered roads, icy roads, and deserts.

The testing for poor road conditions includes driving a total of 900 km in a single day including on actual roads with three drivers taking turns at the wheel.

The testing of tires and other strengths are performed under the harshest, most adverse driving conditions.
