The Toyota Camry is built locally whilst other models, such as the Hilux, Corolla, Aurion and ever popular small car the Yaris, are imported from Japan, Thailand and other nations. Toyota prides itself on quality, durability, reliability, innovation, safety and sustainability. Toyota produced its first car in 1935, called the A1. In 1937 Toyota Motor Company was founded and has gone on to become the world's largest car manufacturer by volume.

If you're a regular CarAdvice reader, you might already know about my passion for all things sideways. But how do you actually drift? And can anyone do it?

Drifting: How do you drift and can anyone do it?

Read the full article here. Since the Toyota 86 launched back in 2012, interest in the smokey sport of drifting has only grown. And why wouldn’t it? The sight, the sound, the smell – it’s a spectacle. But how do you actually drift? And can anyone do it?    ...

2016 Toyota Camry Atara SX Review

Read the full review here There has been a lot said about the demise of the Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore, but Australia will also say goodbye to another Aussie-built sedan icon – the Toyota Camry. With its final full-range update having just hit showroom floors, we thought we’d find out if the locally-made Camry is going out on a high note...

2016 Toyota Prius i-Tech Review

Read the article here. The all-new, fourth-generation Toyota Prius is clearly, well, polarising to look at, but fact of the matter is that the new model is actually quite impressive.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid v Toyota Prius Comparison

Here you have two very different takes on hybrid motoring – the 2016 Toyota Prius, and the 2016 Toyota Corolla Hybrid. Yeah, we know they’re both Toyota models so there are some similarities between the two, including the fact they’re both five-door hatchbacks. But in other regards, these two are also vastly different...

Family 4x4 SUV Comparison: Ford Everest v Isuzu MU-X v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport v Toyota Fortuner v Nissan Patrol

The current-day SUV boom isn’t all about softer, more car-like high-riding options designed with little more than a school run in mind. For many buyers out there, a family 4x4 still needs to be a proper off-roader, a tough-as-nails workhorse that blends a modicum of urban comfort with proper skills off the beaten path and has the ability to confidently and consistently tow loads...

Single-cab ute comparison: Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux

Toyota Supra firming for 2018 launch - report

The long-awaited successor to the Toyota Supra is looking good to hit the road as soon as 2018 - or 'as late as 2018', depending on how long you've been waiting - according to a new report out of the UK. A fortnight ago it was reported that Toyota’s upcoming performance flagship will be powered by a BMW engine paired with a Toyota-developed hybrid system...

Toyota Mirai hydrogen trio moves to Australia

The hydrogen-fuelled Toyota Mirai is back in Australia once again, but even if its polarising styling sings to you, you won't be buying one. Just three examples of the Mirai have come to Australia - this time for a few years - with a focus both on exposing the company's local offices to the technology expected to power its future, and also to promote that same concept in the local market...

2016 Toyota Landcruiser Prado Kakadu (4x4) Review

We have bought the 2016 Prado Kakadu in Feb this year. We have towed with a 1 tonne camper van and didn't even notice it was there. We crossed over the range from Armidale to Port Macquarie and it handled the windy roads with ease. We travelled over 1000kms towing and still made half a tank sitting on the speed limit and driving to the road conditions...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

I have had my 2016 HiLux for over a month and I do like it. I tow a 1.7 tonne trailer most of the time and it handles great. The power, the steering and the breaks are great and such a nice ride. Like the old HiLux it has lots of drink holders, which is a big tick for me but not much cabin storage like behind the rear seats, this needs to change...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

I received my new HiLux 2000km ago as a new work ute replacing a 2013 Colorado. First impressions are good. It has zero turbo lag, excellent fuel economy (best 8.7 L/100 avg 9.6/100), Excellent blue tooth, easy to drive and very little road noise. The average stuff Power button is a joke, all it does is make the accelerator so sensitive it makes it jerky to drive...

2014 Toyota Aurion Sportivo Zr6 Review

Been driving with my Toyota Aurion Sportivo ZR6 for almost a year and a half now. While this may not be an adequate time to judge reliability - does one ever need to worry about the reliability of a Toyota? On paper, the Aurion is a 3.5L V6 that provides a peak torque of 336Nm at 4700rpm and 200Kw of peak power at 6200rpm all to the front wheels...
