Toyota Camry Hybrid previews ahead of strong 2009 sales figures

Toyota sales in Australia during 2009 might have been down on the previous year, but they still managed to sell over 200,000 vehicles - 200,991 to be precise. It’s an outstanding result, when you consider that Holden, the number two player in Australia, sold just 119, 568 cars although, to be fair, the Commodore was our number one selling car for 2009, with 44,387 units moved off the showroom floor...

BMW Z4 sDrive35is

Update: BMW Z4 sDrive35is Review Few will complain about the performance or driving experience behind the wheel of BMW’s impressive rear-wheel drive Z4 Roadster, regardless of which powertrain you go for. That’s especially true of the high performance Z4 sDrive35i, but more is always better, particularly if that means 250 kW and 450 Newton-metres plus, of rear wheel drive torque, which is what you can expect with BMW’s new Z4 sDrive35is...
