Toyota

Toyota started its automotive division in 1933 through the founder's son, Kiichiro Toyoda. Toyota sells 14 different models in Australia. The Toyota Camry is built locally whilst other models, such as the Hilux, Corolla, Aurion and ever popular small car the Yaris, are imported from Japan, Thailand and other nations. Toyota prides itself on quality, durability, reliability, innovation, safety and sustainability. Toyota produced its first car in 1935, called the A1. In 1937 Toyota Motor Company was founded and has gone on to become the world's largest car manufacturer by volume.

2019 Toyota Corolla review

The new Toyota Corolla should remain the market’s most popular passenger car, but it doesn’t follow the established script. Perfect? Not quite. But we admire the boldness.

2018 Toyota Camry SL Hybrid review

The imported Toyota Camry SL Hybrid is actually – shock, horror – a desirable offering that is far more than a mere sensible choice. Who'd have thought we'd ever see the day?

2018 Toyota Yaris GRMN review

Toyota’s GRMN sub-brand of performance cars is off to a promising start – it's just too bad we won't see this one in Australia.

Drift Cadet: Learning how to drift... Without ruining your car

Drifting is a stack of fun, but it increases wear and tear on your engine, your tyres and the gearbox. But, there's now an answer to the age-old problem of learning how to drift without gradually destroying your car, and that answer is to do it in somebody else's car...

Toyota Hybrid: The silent majority

Sponsored by: Toyota Hybrids... what even are they? Today,  just about any mention of the word 'hybrid' should bring to mind a vehicle that combines an internal-combustion engine with advanced electrification – designed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, and increase driving range...

2018 Toyota HiLux Rugged, Rugged X and Rogue review

Paul Maric has just spent the best part of two days testing Toyota's all-new models aimed at the buyer wanting more features and more off-road ability from their dual-cab ute. The Toyota HiLux Rogue, HiLux Rugged and HiLux Rugged X kicked off as an idea among Toyota Australia's executive team in 2015, just before the current-generation HiLux was released...

2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

2018 Toyota C-HR v 1988 Toyota Corolla SR5 4WD Wagon comparison

Over time, we have forgotten the meaning of what an SUV is. Look up your average dictionary and it will tell you it’s a "rugged vehicle with a truck-like chassis and four-wheel drive, designed for occasional off-road use". Now put that description to the likes of the Suzuki Ignis, Mazda CX-3 or Nissan Juke...

2018 Dual-Cab Ute Mega Test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Consider, for a moment, that the eight most popular dual-cab models managed 193,000 sales in Australia last year, which equals 16 per cent of the entire new vehicle market...

Ute mega test: How do the tubs stack up?

They’re more likely to carry dirty nappies and road bikes than a bale of hay, but all eight of the cars on our 2018 dual-cab mega test are, you know, dual-cab utes. That means they still need to be fit for hard work. Has the transition to a life of luxury undermined the inherent practicality of these one-time work vehicles? Here’s a look at how the tray on each stacks up...

CarAdvice podcast 115: Comprehensive chat on all-new Corolla!

Toyota: Hybrids finally thriving in Australia

After more than a decade in the trenches, Toyota Australia is getting cut-through with its hybrid cars, which run on petrol power but use a small battery and electric motor to reduce fuel consumption. The company launched the niche, first-generation Prius in 2001. Though it was narrowly beaten to launch by Honda and its Insight, the company has since been the market leader alongside its premium Lexus subsidiary...

Toyota Australia to "make a stand" on CO2 emissions, calls for tighter regulations

Toyota says that it has a “responsibility to make a stand” as Australia’s market leader and drastically cut the CO2 emissions of its local vehicle range — with or without the sort of government-enforced regulations already entrenched in Europe, the US and much of Asia...

2016 Toyota Fortuner Crusade review

It's a quiet work day back in October 2015, my phone is buzzing in my pocket, so I pull it out and glance at the caller ID – the wife, better answer quick. Before I can even get out the word 'hello', I get "I've won a car!" yelled down the line. I manage to get out a 'what?' before I get the details from the wife. "I won a raffle and I've won a Toyota Fortuner...

1998 Toyota Starlet Life review

There's something to be said about simplicity. In a world of ever-increasing gadgets and complexity, it's a surprising breath of fresh air to step into a car with almost none of the mod-cons. The 1998 Toyota Starlet (manual) is just that – simple and refreshing...

2018 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

One month after purchasing our brand-new LandCruiser 200 Series Sahara, we hitched a caravan and embarked on a four-week trip from Melbourne to the Red Centre. The Sahara was amazing in the way it towed the three-tonne caravan. It was both the towing ease and, more importantly, the weight of the Sahara itself that kept the caravan very stable in every situation...

2017 Toyota Camry RZ SE review

I purchased my 2017 Camry RZ due to the pure fact that it’s a lot of car for $30,000, and the zero per cent finance that the Australian-built Camrys were selling with was a drawcard that turned out to be too good to resist. It looks sporty, and I get a few people looking at me as I drive past (which is odd as it is a Camry)...
