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.

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

Read the full review here  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...

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?

2017 Toyota Hilux SR5 review

We know the 2016 Toyota HiLux SR5 isn’t the best dual cab in the class, because we’ve tested it against the competition not long after its initial release. We know the styling of the all-new model polarises people – even strident Toyota fans most of whom reckon the front end especially has been beaten with the ugly stick...

Small sedan comparison: Toyota Corolla Ascent v Honda Civic VTi-S v Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L

The last time we took a close look at the small sedan segment in the form of a comprehensive three-way comparison, the new-generation Honda Civic stole the cookies from the previous segment leader, the Hyundai Elantra and a slightly more left field combatant, the Skoda Octavia...

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

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...

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...

2013 Toyota Aurion Sportivo SX6 Review

Having Toyota V6’s as part of our work program for many years I hope the following can provide a sound overview of my current vehicle, 2013 Aurion Sportivo SX6. Yes, the Aurion does get mistaken for a Camry regularly but having driven the 4 cylinder Camry,it is not within a bull’s roar of the Aurion...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

With the new crop of dual cab utes around, it is hard to decide which ones suits you better. Do I go for engine power, features, size or name? Mid-2016 I picked up my 2016 HiLux in hope that it would satisfy everything that I need. I loved the standard rear-view camera and the cool box that comes standard with the SR as well as the 7-inch touch screen...

2016 Toyota LandCruiser GXL (4x4) Review

The 2016 turbo-diesel GXL is the only TD in the range with eight seats, which is what our large family requires. The GXL allows us to enjoy getting out and enjoying inaccessible areas such as National Parks and sandy beaches, as a family. In addition to steep descents when using low 4D in some tricky National Parks roads, the crawl control also works effectively on very soft sand...

2014 Toyota LandCruiser Prado GXL (4x4) review

My Prado is a great all rounder and while it doesn't set the world on fire in any one area, it can do almost anything. I bought a runout 3.0-litre one after the great run we got out of my wife's 120 series (seven years,never missed a beat). I tow a 5.5 metre boat and do a 130km commute to work and it still averages 9.5 L/100km...
