Tim and Alex | A Comprehensive Review of the 2019 RAV4: Part 1

What do you get when you cross a professional racing driver ๐Ÿ with the coolest 7-year-old ๐Ÿ˜Ž going around? A whole heap of laughs ๐Ÿคฃ... and a little bit of knowledge about the All-New Toyota RAV4!

Tim Brook from Tim Brook Motorsport took our own Alexander Butler for a drive down the iconic Mitchells Pass to put the RAV4 to the test ๐Ÿš— The result... the way car reviews should be done!! This is a phenomenal car, and the legend that created the compact-SUV segment in the 90s is back with a vengeance.

Keep an eye out for our four-part series starring Tim, Alex and the RAV4.

Community Spotlight [Percy Plunkett]

[COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT] There aren't many people in this world that seriously light you up... that warm your heart, that awakens your spirit and makes you want to go home and tackle those dreams.. but Phil Hallani from Percy Plunkett is one of those people. Spend a few moments with Phil, and you walk away energised, alive.. wanting to kick life goals.

Penrith Toyota wanted to work with Phil and his team because we believe we hold similar values. We're crazily proud of Penrith and all it has to offer, we want to embrace our community... and like Percy Plunkett, we want to create memorable experiences every time.

Percy Plunkett has put Penrith on the map. It's been voted one 2019’s Hottest New Restaurant Openings Across the Globe.. The Globe ๐ŸŒŽ Here. In li'l old Penrith.

Phil is the epitome of Penrith spirit. Born and bred in Penrith, his aim was to bring something special to our l'il town... and he has down that in spades. We couldn't think of a better fit for our very first Penrith Toyota [Community Spotlight].

Pssttt... do yourself a favour, and visit the team at Percy Plunkett. Those Moreton Bay bug tempura tacos ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿคค

International Women's Day

Today is International Women's Day ๐Ÿ‘ฑ‍โ™€๏ธ Our industry is typically heavily weighted by men, and in many dealerships the presence of women is still limited. We're *oh so* proud to say that we have woman-a-plenty! AND they create a crazy strong foundation in our business ๐Ÿข
