See the full article here. As far as updates go, the few that have been added to the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series GXL are very much low key. The GXL now comes with DAB+, an updated audio interface and steering wheel audio controls? You want more? Well, there isn’t any…...

The Shortlist: Taller driver, smaller car and lots of kilometres

Doing what we do, CarAdvice writers are often asked by friends and family, and through our contact page: which car is best for me? Most buyers can identify the top three non-negotiable factors that will guide their purchase decision. But… where to from there? In this series, we look at these cases and single out three cars that fit the brief...

2017 Holden Astra LT sedan v 2017 Toyota Corolla Ascent sedan comparison

From styling to equipment and value, Holden has take the offensive to the small-car market with its Euro-influenced Astra sedan range. An offer too good to be true? We pitch it against the evergreen, big-selling Corolla to test the measure of the Astra's goodness.

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GXL review

The LandCruiser has always been the company's flagship off-roader. The 200 Series is a monster though, and too big for the city, so we headed for its natural environment – the Aussie bush.

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report five – off-road

As we made clear in our load-lugging piece on the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute, the thing is a beast when it comes to getting away from the blacktop. I mean, consider this: 70 per cent of these hardcore Toyota trucks are sold in regional areas, and the real percentage of regional users is probably higher than that, because farmers, miners and other customers might have a particular city dealer that they’ve remained loyal to for a while...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report four – towing

You may be more likely to see a horse float or heavy machinery on a trailer behind a 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute, but we thought we’d buck the trend and tow a big, brand new boat. The LandCruiser cab-chassis has a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500 kilograms which, on paper, doesn't out-rate a dual-cab Ford Ranger, Nissan Navara, Holden Colorado or Isuzu D-Max...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series Workmate single-cab review

Aside from the moon, there's nowhere the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series won't go. Paul Maric slips behind the wheel of the entry-level to see whether Toyota is having a lend, or whether it's worth the money.

Highway 1 To Hell - Fastest lap around Australia's Highway 1

Do you want to beat a world record? That was the thought that embedded itself in Jay Gordon’s psyche and formed the basic outline of his pitch to potential drivers when he recruited friends and family to attempt something pretty absurd: Four guys trapped in a modified Land Cruiser for over 6 days, blazing around Australia on Highway 1, stopping only for fuel, food, and urgent toilet breaks...
