2018 Toyota LandCruiser Prado pricing and specs

The Toyota LandCruiser Prado - Australia's biggest-selling large SUV - has been given a swathe of price cuts yet picked up way more safety equipment and some offroad-focused tweaks to boot. Bidding to make the strong stronger, Toyota has also bumped the braked-trailer towing capacity on all auto versions to 3000kg - sure to delight grey nomads, horse trainers and mine-site fleet buyers at the same time - put a rear diff-lock on the GLX auto and VX grades, and ditched the V6 petrol engine altogether...

Toyota C-HR R-Tuned eyeing Nurburgring record

Toyota bucked the trend at SEMA this year. Rather than limiting itself a handful of very pretty, mildly tweaked versions of its core range, it took a base C-HR and turned it into a fire-breathing monster. The C-HR R-Tuned has a 447kW 2AZ-4FE engine shoehorned under the bonnet...

2018 Hyundai Kona 1.6 Highlander AWD v Toyota C-HR Koba AWD comparison

See the full article here. Despite making a fashionably late arrival to the small crossover market, the 2018 Hyundai Kona has certainly made a grand entrance on appearances alone. Funky? You bet. Even against the hot sellers and mover’n’shakers – CX-3, ASX, XV, HR-V – largely responsible for skyrocketing the popularity of form and fashion over pure family-friendly functionality, the Kona appears, literally, to lob into trendy leading edge of style...

Toyota C-HR R-Tuned: 447kW racer headlines stand at SEMA

Toyota has turned the C-HR into a turbocharged, 447kW monster for SEMA in Las Vegas. Along with the fire-breathing compact SUV, the Japanese manufacturer leaned on its NASCAR driver lineup to create a range of modified Camrys.

Toyota on Ranger Raptor: 'Clearly there's a gap' in HiLux range

Toyota Australia knows it has room at the top of its HiLux line for an even musclier pack than what it offers right now with its latest take on a TRD-badged model. The company is no stranger to performance-tweaked HiLux packages, however, having dabbled in that segment nearly 10 years ago with the supercharged 225kW TRD HiLux 4000S...

Toyota not fearful of sales hurt in shift to import business

The end of Australian vehicle production has seen Toyota transform into an import-only brand, along with fellow former manufacturers Holden and Ford Australia. It remains to be seen what impact the end of local manufacturing will have on Holden's sales, but it's almost one year since Ford closed the doors on its manufacturing program and the company's sales are relatively steady at 60,465 year-to-date (down from 61,406)...
