Holden Colorado LTZ v Toyota HiLux SR5 comparison

I’m sure that deep inside a fortune cookie somewhere is a pseudo-cryptic message that suggests being first doesn’t immediately equate with being the best. Take this pair of pick-ups for example.

Toyota HiLux tops 2016 sales charts, Ranger fourth

It’s official: the Toyota HiLux was Australia’s top-selling new vehicle in 2016, marking the first time a light commercial ute has finished a calendar year atop the podium.

Facelift fails: The worst styling updates of 2016

When brands update their cars, sometimes the stylists get it wrong. Facelifted models are supposed to add some flair to an existing model - to bring it up to speed with its competitors, or harden up some edges that may been looking a little limp on the original model.
