Toyota

Toyota started its automotive division in 1933 through the founder's son, Kiichiro Toyoda. Toyota sells 14 different models in Australia. 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.

2018 Toyota Camry Ascent Hybrid review

In the ultimate ride-share specification – white, base-model hybrid – does the all-new Toyota Camry Ascent represent good value for a sub-$30K large car?

2018 Toyota Camry review: First Australian drive

Can a Toyota Camry be more than 'just' reliable, safe and conservative? And does anybody care? The eighth-generation model, imported from Japan rather than made here, is launching now with a mind to answering these questions in the affirmative.

2018 Toyota Camry SL review

Toyota is pretty fed up with the Camry's iconography: whitegoods, cardigans and bowls clubs. So it claims to have made a clean break with this new one.

2018 Toyota Prado Kakadu review

The facelifted 2018 Toyota Prado Kakadu is finally here and it now comes with extra towing capacity (3000kg), a new face and a revised interior. But, at 2500kg, is the Prado getting a bit big for its boots? Paul Maric finds out.

2018 Hyundai Kona 1.6 Highlander AWD v Toyota C-HR Koba AWD comparison

See the full article here. Despite making a fashionably late arrival to the small crossover market, the 2018 Hyundai Kona has certainly made a grand entrance on appearances alone. Funky? You bet. Even against the hot sellers and mover’n’shakers – CX-3, ASX, XV, HR-V – largely responsible for skyrocketing the popularity of form and fashion over pure family-friendly functionality, the Kona appears, literally, to lob into trendy leading edge of style...

2017 Toyota Yaris SX review

The updated 2017 Toyota Yaris light hatch may be plain as original chips, but it's surprisingly lovable and fun to drive.  ...

2003 Toyota Corolla Sportivo review

Having been a die-hard Toyota LandCruiser owner for many years, driving an exciting performance car seemed like a distant memory, a memory that included Falcon GTs, Valiant Pacers et cetera. To say that I was astonished after driving a Corolla Sportivo VVTL-i for the first time would only be half of the description...

2014 Toyota 86 GT review

I just sold my Toyota 86, and it has turned out to be the cheapest new car I have ever owned – and probably the best driver’s car I have ever had. I purchased a brand-new Toyota 86 GT in February 2015 for $31,500 on the road. Three years and 30,000km later, I have just sold it for $22,500. It has been a privilege to have such a remarkable car as my daily drive for a piddling $3000 a year...

2005 Toyota Corolla Sportivo review

I am the proud owner of a 2005 Toyota Corolla Sportivo. I fell in love with this car after my uncle and aunt bought one new from the factory. At the time I was driving another car (a 1975 Toyota Celica) which is also an awesome car in its own rights. Whilst most Sportivos are not the most sporty of cars (when compared to Ford Focus, WRX or Astra Turbo, that is), they have lots of potential...

2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid review

The year 2011. I was looking for a very fuel efficient, reliable and cheap to maintain family car to replace my humble Hyundai Excel that had serviced our family needs for sometime. There were two options on my shortlist – the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Honda Civic Hybrid. I discarded all of the other options (including my then, and still favourite, Holden Commodore)...
