Buying and modifying a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series: Part 2

Why pull out new suspension and spend your own hard-earned money to replace it with some aftermarket gear? Good question, right? The answer comes down to customisation, and setting up your vehicle to perform well where it counts. While the standard suspension system of the LandCruiser is quite stout and a decent performer, there is definite room for improvement...

Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ: You don't mess with imperfection

As the most enthusiastic motoring aficionados descend into a collective delirium about whether Toyota’s revived six-cylinder sports coupe really is deserving of the Supra name, given its heavy reliance on BMW componentry, it seems the Supra’s baby brother has stepped out of the firing line for a moment...

Toyota has given the Corolla SX and ZR a safety boost for 2020, adding low-speed crash avoidance to the car's already-impressive array of active safety features.

2003 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

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. I needed something a little more kid friendly. I needed something that I could still entertain myself and my daughter with on weekends. I needed something that wasn’t boring...

2016 Toyota 86 GTS review

I get some strange looks each week from the new parents as I pull in to drop off or pick up my two little girls from kindergarten. One Dad got out of his SUV (looking a little depressed) and as we walked to drop our kids off he commented to me, "you realize that is not a family car don't you?" (gesturing to my orange 2+2 seater Toyota 86)...

2018 Toyota Corolla Sx (hybrid) review

There's been a lot said and written about the new (2018) Corolla, but 6 months into owning mine I'm seeing many, many more on our roads. It seems obvious that it is winning - and will continue to win - over new buyers or those upgrading from a previous model.

2018 Toyota Camry SX review

I never believed that I’d be a Camry man, but I needed to look at a 4-cylinder family car to replace my work-supplied Sonata after I was made redundant and I had secured a new job that didn’t have a car as part of the pay package. We have a Mazda 3 hatchback already in our garage and I didn’t want a Mazda 6, as I am not a fan of Mazda’s tablet-style infotainment screen or central control wheel...
