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. 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. It is a huge seller in its home market, with about 175,000 Tacoma models sold in the US in 2015. That's about four-and-a-half times as many as Toyota sold of its HiLux in Australia last year...

2016 Toyota RAV4 Cruiser Diesel Review

Read the article here. The Toyota RAV4 has long been part of the staple diet of SUV loving Australians. It was one of the first compact SUVs launched here, and remains one of the most popular. Much like rice or potatoes, it’s long been no frills yet reliable choice, a popular option alongside Mazda’s CX-5 and Nissan’s X-Trail...

Audi A3 e-tron v BMW i3 v Citroen C4 Cactus v Toyota Prius: Economy comparison test part two

By now you’ve hopefully read part one of this economy comparison test, where we set out for 100 kilometres of urban driving. The aim of part one was to find out which of the four cars on test – Audi A3 e-tron, BMW i3 range-extender, Citroen C4 Cactus and Toyota Prius – was the most efficient, city-friendly commuter. And the winner was clear...

Audi A3 e-tron v BMW i3 v Citroen C4 Cactus v Toyota Prius: Economy comparison test part one

With fuel prices hitting decade lows in recent times, there has arguably never been a worse time to buy an economy-focused car. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great options out there for people who are thinking about long-term sustainability and doing their bit for the environment...

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...

January-March 2016 VFACTS: New vehicle sales, ups and downs of the first quarter

We’re now into the second quarter of 2016, meaning we are able to deduce some Australian car industry trends for the year-to-date (YTD). Leading the pack in the sales race is the Mazda 3, which is a nose ahead of the Toyota Corolla, though sales of both of these small cars are down. Rounding out the top five were the Toyota HiLux, Hyundai i30 and Ford Ranger...

March 2016 VFACTS: New vehicle sales, winners and losers

Australian new vehicle sales were down slightly in March 2016 over last year’s mammoth tally, with 104,512 units registered meaning a drop of 0.5 per cent. March sales are usually high because it’s the end of the Japanese financial year. However, the top-selling car in March was Korean — the Hyundai i30, skating to first thanks to strong factory drive-away deals...

2015 Toyota Landcruiser Gxl (4x4) Review

I have owned Toyota Landcruisers continuously since 1975. I have had over 10 different models during that time and have always loved them and enjoyed them. This current LC200 GXL is without a doubt the best vehicle I have ever owned. I Have had Range Rovers and Patrols earlier on as well. Love the ride, the sheer towing ability, comfort and the economy of this updated model...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR5 (4x4) Review

After driving a toyota hiace van for many years, last year I purchased a 2015 HiLux SR5 double cab pick up purely on the fact that my Hiace had got me to work, "whether I liked it or not" reliably for 15 years. Even after reading many reviews that put it out to pasture, I chose the HiLux...

2007 Toyota Yaris YRS Review

When I came back from Canada in 2006, I was looking for value and economy. I'd had a Mazda MX5 there, but couldn't afford the Australian equivalent. I compared small cars and the Yaris came out on top. It's a great car and I've had a lot of fun in it. It just hit the 113600 mark (5 trips to QLD from VIC and back) and I've never crawled out of this car in agony...

2016 Toyota Landcruiser Prado GXL (4x4) Review

We had been looking to replace our 7 seat, 2008 Ford Territory TS for a few months and needed something with 7 usable seats, good on fuel and comfortable to drive. We have 3 children in school now and needed a 3rd row seat that was usable for school friends and adults alike when necessary. After test driving several different cars we settled on the new 2...
