2020 Toyota C-HR Koba hybrid review

The hybrid version of Toyota’s distinctive compact SUV is a blend of practical perks and frustrating quirks that could make it untenable for some, but perfect for others.

2020 Toyota C-HR 2WD review

The Toyota C-HR, the Japanese brand's funky and style-driven take on the small-SUV segment, has received a midlife update. But how does that translate to the entry-level model?

2019 Toyota Yaris Ascent auto review

The most affordable automatic Yaris is a great city runabout, but there are many areas it's let down by its age.

REVIEW: 2020 Toyota C-HR 2WD

Things don’t get much simpler in the Toyota C-HR range than this entry-level model refreshed with a midlife update for 2020.

2020 Toyota Kluger Black Edition AWD review

Fashionable. That’s the word Toyota Australia uses to promote the 2020 Toyota Kluger Black Edition, though realistically, strong evidence suggests all Klugers are quite fashionable right now.

2020 Toyota C-HR Koba hybrid review

There’s little doubt the C-HR occupies a particularly competitive space in the market, with manufacturers seemingly magicking compact SUVs out of nowhere on an almost weekly basis.

2020 BMW Z4 sDrive20i v Toyota GR Supra GT comparison

They’re twins under the skin and both famous nameplates. But if you’re after the best driver’s car for about $90,000, do you pick the German roadster or Japanese coupe?

2020 Honda Accord Hybrid v Toyota Camry Hybrid comparison

If this were the United States, a comparison of the Honda Accord against the Toyota Camry would be a Battle Royale of top-sellers. Things are different here, though. The Camry absolutely dominates the remnants of a mainstream mid-sized car segment that has halved in overall market share over the past decade...

2020 Mazda CX-30 v Toyota C-HR comparison

Car manufacturers are engaged in a mad scramble to offer as many small, high-riding crossover hatchbacks as they possibly can in a bid to capitalise on market demand. Naturally, Australia’s two top-selling brands, Toyota and Mazda, are strong contenders. The former recently updated its unusual-looking C-HR by fitting a better touchscreen and adding a hybrid option, while the latter launched a whole new model called the CX-30...

2020 Hyundai Ioniq v Toyota Prius comparison

It’s taken two decades for the world’s most famous hybrid to face a direct rival. Can the Prius hold its ground against Hyundai’s first petrol-electric play, the Ioniq?

The 10 most popular cars in video games, ranked

The most popular car brands and models to feature in video games have been revealed in a new study conducted by UK car sales website Carwow. The study – which analysed thousands of video games featuring cars (whether as the main focus or merely as tools for players to utilise) – ranked popularity based on how many appearances brands and models made across the titles...

Toyota Yaris compact SUV spied

Toyota appears to be making progress on its new pint-sized SUV based on the next generation Yaris, if these spy photos taken during winter testing are a guide. It's unlikely the new model will share the same body as this Toyota Yaris with raised suspension and bolder bodywork (as pictured above)...

New Toyota Tundra due in late 2021, still not confirmed for Australia

The next generation Toyota Tundra is due on sale late next year, but the full-size pick-up is still no closer to coming to Australia. A leaked dealer presentation shows the US-made Toyota Tundra is due in last half of 2021 after the next Toyota 86 sports-car and an as-yet unnamed compact SUV that will slot beneath the Toyota C-HR...

1992 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

Fifteen years ago, I decided to become a bald nomad and that I needed a vehicle to tow a 7.2-metre Euro caravan, which I was in the process of buying. I researched what would be suitable in the four-wheel wheel drive category, and the Toyota 80 series stood out as a super-reliable and capable vehicle, especially the turbo diesel model...

2001 Toyota Celica SX review

At the start of 2020 I had an urge to get a ‘weekend’ car. Something I could have a tinker with and not rely upon for everyday drudgery through traffic. It had to be relatively cheap (around 10 grand), somewhat unique, and something that I could maintain and modify easily without breaking the bank...

2010 Toyota Aurion Sportivo ZR6 review

After about 3 years with my trusty manual 2012 Kia Rio S - which I wrote a review on 2 years ago - and now with a full time job, I decided to satisfy my "Power Craving" and upgraded to a 2010 Toyota Aurion Sportivo ZR6. I bought my Aurion in March 2019 with 135,000 kilometres, and as of February 2020, it currently has 154000km of faultless, right lane driving...

1999 Toyota Landcruiser Prado GXL (4x4) review

I always had a strong bias against 4WDs. Having grown up in the country, they were everywhere, so I knew how good they were, but I always thought that they’d be woefully out of place in anywhere more urban than the back of Woop-Woop...
