Honda HR-V VTi-L v Mazda CX-3 Akari v Mitsubishi ASX XLS v Toyota C-HR Koba comparison

Small crossovers are a vogue segment, drawing buyers up from lower hatchbacks and down from bigger SUVs alike. The newest entrant, creating significant buzz, is the Toyota C-HR. Australia’s biggest-selling brand has taken its time joining the fray, but based on our favourable first impression, it has been well worth the wait...

2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland. And while some Aussies might miss having motor shows here in Oz, few will see that as enough of an excuse to splash out to attend a major international one. Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out...

I didn't want to buy a Toyota HiLux. But I did.

Hatred.  Vilification. Prejudice.  Strong words indeed and ones normally applied to far weightier aspects of our human existence than buying a new car. As a middled-aged and middle class white male they are not normally words that get thrown in my direction. I now know what it feels like to be in the oppressed majority. Let me tell you a story about how it all happened...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

2017 Toyota Corolla SX review

The 2017 Toyota Corolla SX has sporty looks and decent road manners, and it now comes with new optional safety tech – but it's still a bit short of the best in class.

Toyota MR2: 86 chief hints at spiritual successor

A successor, of sorts, to the Toyota MR2 could soon be in the works according to Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer of the Toyota 86 and now head of Gazoo Racing. Tada-san told Evo that Toyota wants to complete a three-part sports car range "as soon as possible". When, or if, the MR2's spiritual successor surfaces, it will form the last part of a revived "three brothers" strategy that includes the larger 86 coupe and the upcoming Supra...

2017 Toyota C-HR Koba review

Read the full review here. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't want to like the 2017 Toyota C-HR. It looks like a small space ship, on paper it has an underwhelming engine and the pricing is ambitious. So, after spending hundreds of kilometres with the car in a variety of driving situations, has it won me over?

Screw your stupid hidden door handles!

What's with the disappearing rear door handles? Modern car designers seem to be getting more and more enamoured with the idea that making the rear doors of cars appear as though they're missing entrance levers is in some way sleek, modern or - God forbid - cool. It isn't. Door handles are important and they should be there for all to see and feel...

2017 Toyota C-HR Koba review

If you thought styling wasn't in Toyota's vocabulary, think again. The all-new Toyota C-HR aims to buck the Toyota design trend with wild angles and zero conservatism. Is it enough to win over the hip youth? Paul Maric takes a drive to find out.
