Toyota Owner Car Reviews

2000 Toyota HiAce review

The Toyota HiAce, stalwart van of choice when it comes to tradies, couriers and the self employed for decades. That's not to say that there are not better offerings out there right now, but for the year model we're reviewing (2000 so to say), the Toyota HiAce would be the top pick...

2005 Toyota Corolla Sportivo review

The facelifted 2005 Corolla Sportivo was the final hurrah of not only the Sportivo badge in the Corolla range, but also the 2ZZ-GE engine in the Australian market. I bought the Corolla not long after driving a friend's pre-facelift model where my interest began in these little pocket rockets...

2010 Toyota Aurion Touring SE review

I have a 2010 Touring purchased second-hand in May 2016 for $11,990 with 90,000km on the clock. It now has 11,2000km and is still running perfectly. At the time of purchase, I was considering buying a new Kia Cerato to replace my 2004 Camry Altise. However, sitting in the used car section was the Aurion with far more space and features over the Cerato for $8000 less...

2013 Toyota 86 GTS review

I purchased this car brand-new in 2013 after waiting nearly 12 months. It's funny in hindsight to think that people were speculating about 18 month waiting lists and paying premiums over RRP for one these – such was the hype! I had the reviews to keep me occupied while I waited, and fortunately they were very accurate for the most part...

2003 Toyota LandCruiser GXL (4x4) review

This a totally awesome vehicle. It's excellent for long trips with great comfort and plenty of power. I picked mine up second-hand with 300,000 kms on the clock and she still drives like a new car. It has a had a suspension upgrade as well as a three-inch exhaust. The 1HDFTE is an awesome motor, very reliable and with heaps of grunt...

2015 Toyota Landcruiser Prado Altitude (4x4) review

Before I start, I must inform you that I'm a 14 year old boy. No I'm not the one who wrote the BMW x5 review, I am the Sri Lankan counterpart who is also a massive car nut. I'm writing this review because there aren't much reviews on this exact varient of the Prado and because I have nothing else to do these school holidays...

2016 Toyota LandCruiser Workmate (4x4) review

Okay, so it's not actually my personal car but I did choose it and it was effectively mine for a month. Yes, I had an outback assignment to complete at the edge of the Great Victoria Desert and to my mind the LandCruiser was the logical choice...

2014 Toyota 86 GTS review

This is my first sports car. Coming from a Subaru Forester, it is a significant difference, so this is my reference point, okay, not other sports cars. The 86 is a joy to drive every day. The ride is on the stiff side and the handling makes this car so much fun to drive. The driving position is very low and gives you a sensation of been protected, although I can now see under some SUVs...

2013 Toyota Aurion Sportivo SX6 Review

Having Toyota V6’s as part of our work program for many years I hope the following can provide a sound overview of my current vehicle, 2013 Aurion Sportivo SX6. Yes, the Aurion does get mistaken for a Camry regularly but having driven the 4 cylinder Camry,it is not within a bull’s roar of the Aurion...

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...
