2019 Kia Cerato v Toyota Corolla comparison | Best small car?

Kia’s Cerato has a few rough edges, but for many buyers, these are smoothed out by the Korean hatchback’s excellent ownership credentials that start with its sharp drive-away pricing and finish with that generous factory warranty (unless owned even longer than seven years, of course). And in between, there’s a practical and comfortable interior that makes the Cerato roomy transport for a small family...

2013 Toyota Camry Altise review

My father recently replaced his trusty Camry with a Land Rover Discovery Sport. He decided to give the Camry to me, and after 6 years of experiencing the car as a passenger, there was something oddly satisfying about the passenger finally becoming the driver... The Camry is great for shopping trips and long cruises with the family, as there is plenty of space for both people and cargo...

2019 Toyota Camry Ascent review: The rental

Good things: If you have owned the previous shape Camry, this is an absolute revelation in terms of quietness and ride. It is extremely supple, and handles bumps very well...

1980 Toyota Corolla CS review

Not everyone wants to have everything done for them. Some people would prefer to add every last ingredient to their spaghetti bolognese, while others prefer to buy a tin of Campbells. Me however, I am the former, which is why I still own my first car which I bought 9 years ago for $800. It's my 1980 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan, with the big block 1...

Once I realised my little 2001 WRX was no longer cutting the mustard as a "family car", I had some very hard and long thinking to do. I needed something bigger.
