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. What makes it so impressive? Well, this time – or more correctly, for the first time ever – the Prius is actually a bit of fun to drive...

2016 Toyota Tacoma Review (MY 2017)

Read the article here. While Australia makes do with the hugely popular Toyota HiLux as its dual-cab ute of choice, the US market gets the Toyota Tacoma, which is a very different beast indeed.

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...

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...

2015 Toyota 86 GTS Review

I've always wanted a sports car but never could have one due to needing a certain level of practicality. This time I bought a car I really wanted and I've never looked back! I love the way this car handles and rides. You can feel every bump in the road but in a fun, engaging way. The steering and low position make you feel connected with the road...
