In 1937 Toyota Motor Company was founded and has gone on to become the world's largest car manufacturer by volume.

2015 Toyota RAV4 Cruiser Diesel Review

The RAV4 remains a favourite in the medium SUV segment, but it now faces its sternest test ever against newer, better-equipped competition.

2015 Toyota Aurion Review

The final iteration of the locally produced Toyota Aurion rolled out of the Altona production plant with little fanfare earlier this year. Unlike its production-line sibling the Camry, which received the largest mid-cycle overhaul in its history a few weeks earlier, the updated Aurion appears almost identical to the pre-facelift model inside and out, while picking up a few additional infotainment and safety features intended to see it out to the end of production in 2017...

2015 Toyota 86 Review

Three years on and Australians' love affair with the Toyota 86 seems to have worn off. Was it all just hype?

2015 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara Review

The 200 series Toyota LandCruiser keeps trucking on at the head of the upper-large SUV class. It's not as refined as some, but it's off-road prowess and all round usability is unquestioned.

2015 Toyota 86 Review

It's hard to believe it's been three years since the Toyota 86 first launched in Australia with a sub-$30k price tag and the promise of proper rear-wheel-drive dynamics. Initially a consistent top-seller in the local sports car bracket, that same success has not been matched globally. And so far this year, sales are actually down more than 30 per cent...

2016 Toyota Fortuner revealed

The all-new 2016 Toyota Fortuner SUV has been unveiled at simultaneous events in Thailand and Australia ahead of an October sales debut this year. The Japanese brand’s new rugged off-road model – which is based on the new-generation Toyota HiLux – is to that ute as the Ford Everest is to the Ranger, the Isuzu MU-X to the D-Max … you get the idea...

Hyundai Tucson v Mazda CX-5 v Subaru Forester v Toyota RAV4: Medium Diesel SUV comparison

The just-released Hyundai Tucson is gunning to shoot Mazda’s CX-5 off its perch as the top-selling mid-sized SUV range in Australia. And if first impressions are anything to go by, the Korean threat to Japanese domination looks very real indeed...

Toyota Landcruiser Prado Altitude v Mitsubishi Pajero GLS : Comparison Review

The Toyota Landcruiser Prado has long been the go-to choice for drivers after seven seats and serious off-road ability. Does the Landcruiser Prado Altitude live up to that name?

Toyota Camry Hybrid Atara SL v Honda Accord Sport Hybrid v Lexus IS300h F Sport : Hybrid sedan comparison

Hybrid cars are not exactly a big ticket item in Australia, especially when you compare our market to somewhere such as Japan or the US. Nevertheless, there are options from Toyota, Honda and Lexus for those with green-tinged glasses. Out of the 260,000-odd passenger cars registered to fleets and private buyers alike over the first half of 2015, fewer than 5000 were petrol-electric hybrids...

2016 Toyota Prius photographed completely undisguised before debut

The fourth-generation Toyota Prius has been photographed completely undisguised prior to its debut next week. These photos, which seem to have been taken while the next-generation hybrid hatch was strapped in for a trans-oceanic flight, were first published by the Toyota Prius Club of Malaysia...

Australia doesn’t love utes – it loves pick-up trucks

I call a ute a ute. I don’t call it a pick-up. I don’t call it a truck (although I like the macho nature of the word truck). It’s clear, however, that the word 'ute' is being phased out of car company marketing chit-chat, and it could well be that buyers are following the same path...

Ford Australia boss says new Toyota HiLux pricing is “not a concern”

The boss of Ford Australia has defended the increased pricing of the 2016 Ford Ranger PX Series II model, claiming he is not concerned about whether the all-new Toyota HiLux will be cheaper or not. Ford Australia president and CEO, Graeme Whickman, made the statement at the launch of the 2016 Ford Ranger in Victoria this week, where it was brought to his attention that numerous ute brands – including Toyota – had been offering discounted driveaway deals that Ford hadn’t been able to match...

2012 Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport Review

Bought one of the last old models in August 2012 as a run around three years and 80,000kms later has to be one of the best cars I have ever owned. Performance from the 1.8 VVT engine is brisk with excellent performance kicking in from 2500 to 4500 rpm .Economy is a welcome surprise, to date Ihave averaged 6...

2015 Toyota Corolla Ascent Review

The most reliable mid size sedan in the market right now. Affordable service cost. Love the leg room in front and back seats as I am a 6'2 in height. Awesome Toyota music system. Would have been great if the car had a auto lock when reached certain speed. It's a good passenger safety feature for a buyer who has young kids and if driver forgets to look the doors with manual button on the driver door...

We have recently returned home after touring parts of western Qld NT and WA a total of approx. 14000 klms towing a caravan, this included over 700 klms of dirt on the gibb river road in WA, we cannot speak to highly of the performance of our HI-Lux which handled all conditions without fuss proving beyond doubt that we had chosen the right vehicle for the job, both engine and 4 speed auto gearbox [ transmission cooler fitted ] performed extremely well with no issues all the way...
