Slide on in to the drivers seat, shut the door, put your hands on the steering wheel and look around as you feel the excitement and power envelop you. The driver's seat is the control centre of any vehicle and how it looks, feels and functions is vital to the driving experience. The cockpit of a car includes everything in the driver's pod, from the seat to the instrumentation and steering wheel...

2016 Toyota HiLux Workmate review

Over the past few years, we have seen the humble work ute transform into a high-tech, high-priced leisure machine. But not everyone needs all the bells and whistles, and in the case of the 2016 Toyota HiLux Workmate, stripping away all the options, accessories and luxury appointments leaves you with what is arguably a better example of the breed...

2017 Toyota 86 Track Review

Read the full article here There aren't too many dramatic changes with the 2017 Toyota 86 – rather it’s a mid-life facelift (or refresh in manufacturer terms) for a vehicle that’s already been around for nearly five years. First launched locally in 2012, the 86 has been a supremely popular vehicle – a fact mirrored around the world – so you can understand Toyota’s reluctance to make sweeping, wholesale changes...

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. For 2016, the Toyota HiLux was not only the highest selling ute in Australia, it was the highest selling passenger vehicle. Period...

2016 Toyota Fortuner GXL v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Exceed comparison

If you're in the market for a rugged, yet family-friendly SUV, then it's hard to go past these two contenders: the 2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the 2016 Toyota Fortuner. Both are diesel-powered, both are priced close to one another in the trim levels we have here – the Mitsubishi being the flagship Pajero Sport Exceed, and the Toyota the mid-spec Fortuner GXL – and both are going under scrutiny here so we can see which we would recommend as the best rugged off-road family vehicle at this price point...

The brand new Toyota C-HR small crossover launched in Australia today, with the express mission of “disrupting” a segment led by the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V despite severely restricted supply out of Japan.

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...

2016 Toyota RAV4 GXL (4x4) review

I travelled recently to New Zealand for a road trip with my partner. We were after something economical, powerful and spacious. Not always three things that come hand-in-hand. I took my chances and hired a brand new (few thousand km) RAV4 GXL petrol AWD. We racked up 6000km in four weeks driving all through New Zealand from snow to rain to fog and being that it was a hire car, it got tested well...
