Driving the Hakone Turnpike and some of Japan’s finest touge roads

Mates of mine who live in Japan tell me driving enthusiasts have an almost spiritual connection with the legendary Hakone Turnpike – or Mazda Turnpike as it is now known. That’s regardless of whether you're a local or an import to the land of the rising sun like they are. There’s just something about that racetrack-smooth stretch of tarmac that irons a winding black ribbon through the mountain forest near Odawara...

2016 Toyota 86 Style at Fuji Speedway

Having attended the 2015 Nismo Festival at Fuji Speedway, I think I have some idea what I’m in for as we head once again to the legendary track in the foothills of Mount Fuji for the 2016 Toyota 86 Style event.

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...

Facelift fails: The worst styling updates of 2016

When brands update their cars, sometimes the stylists get it wrong. Facelifted models are supposed to add some flair to an existing model - to bring it up to speed with its competitors, or harden up some edges that may been looking a little limp on the original model.

2014 Toyota 86 GTS Review

The Toyota 86 is a well known sports car that everybody seems to love. It looks good, it has a very sporty stance, and is very sleek. Driving past people, heads turn. But thats only on the outside. On the inside, it is a very different story. The engine is very flat down low and in mid range. To get anything out of it, you have to rev it to near its redline to feel it actually work...

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...

2015 Toyota 86 Review
