Toyota Reviews

2020 Toyota Corolla ZR sedan review

Toyota’s top-spec small sedan takes a positive step upmarket.

2020 Toyota HiAce review: Super LWB diesel

With an extra-long wheelbase and frugal diesel power plant, is this HiAce a better pick than a 4x4 ute?

2020 Toyota Kluger GX review

Runout pricing for Toyota's enduringly popular big Kluger SUV adds value to the proposition. Is base specification the one to buy?

2020 Toyota HiLux Workmate review: 4x2 petrol auto

The ute that keeps councils, couriers and rental fleets running leads the 4x2 sales race with good reason.

Revideo: 2020 Ford Ranger vs Toyota HiLux comparison review

Like their sales figures, it is honestly very hard to separate these utes. Each time one pulls ahead, the other counters in a different way. More tech, Ford. Better ergonomics, Toyota. Rear passenger comfort, Ford. Longer load area, Toyota. Cheaper to buy, HiLux. Cheaper to run, Ranger. You can play tit-for-tat in every possible way, but in our mind it comes down to one key outcome...

Video: 2020 Ford Ranger v Toyota Hilux... Tug o' War!

There are any number of ways to decide which of these two utes should be king of the Australian market, and our latest full comparison is certainly one of them. THIS, however, is another slightly less scientific but loads-more-fun way to decide.

Video review: 2020 Toyota Fortuner v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport - off-road comparison

4WDers are a bit spoiled for choice these days. Along with traditional big 4WD wagons and huge array of 4WD utes available, buyers can also look at a segment in between: 4WD wagons, based on the utes. We’ve got two of the freshest updates here: The 2020 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (which is facelifted for 2020), and the 2020 Toyota Fortuner (which got refreshed in late 2019)...

Video review: 2020 Toyota Fortuner v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport - on-road comparison

For those who want a big SUV with built-in off-road ability, you’ve got two choices: go big, with something like a LandCruiser or Patrol. Or, go not-so-big (and not-so-spendy) with the variety of ute-based 4X4 wagons currently on offer...

Hybrid SUV comparison review: Subaru Forester Hybrid v Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

It’s fuel pumps at dawn as a new petrol-electric version of the Subaru Forester tries to displace the Toyota RAV4 as the world’s best – and most frugal – $40,000 hybrid SUV.

Off-road spec comparison: Jeep Gladiator Rubicon v Ford Ranger Raptor v Toyota LandCruiser 79 v Nissan Navara N-Trek Warrior

Which of these high-dollar 4x4 utes packs the best on-paper punch? Time to crunch some numbers...

Old v new: 1996 Toyota Supra RZ v 2020 Toyota Supra GTS

This is no performance comparison, but rather a tear down memory lane, as two old mates talk team Toyota.

Toyota Supra GRMN to get BMW M power in 2023 – report

A limited edition Toyota Supra with BMW M Power is coming to showrooms in 2023, according to a report by Japan’s Best Car magazine citing unnamed sources. In a move that further cements the joint venture sports car program between the Japanese and German companies, BMW has reportedly been persuaded by Toyota to use one of its most prized engines in a limited run of Supra coupes...

10 new cars we're excited about in 2020

When planning to buy a new car, it pays to have options. And while the Australian car market currently offers more than enough to keep you browsing for weeks on end – there's more to come over the next 12 months. At CarAdvice, we spend most of our days eagerly anticipating the new cars we've been writing about since they were merely concepts, renders or rumours...

1997 Toyota Supra selling for nearly twice as much as a new one

A pristine, limited-edition 1997 Toyota Supra has gone up for sale in Tennessee with an asking price nearly double that of a brand-new 2020 Toyota Supra available in the US. The fourth-generation Supra – more commonly referred to as the ‘Mk4’ – is being offered by Street Side Classics in Nashville with an asking price of $US92,995 ($AU133,000)...

Cars for sale: five deals on seven-seat SUVs

New-car bargains are becoming harder to find after bigger-than-expected sales in June left showrooms empty, and factory shutdowns during the coronavirus crisis delayed the arrival of fresh stock. With that in mind, there are still savings to be found if you’re patient and prepared to shop around...

2019 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) review

I bought my 2019 Hilux SR in January 2020 due to its excellent resale and solid Toyota build quality. I prefer the front look of the SR compared to the SR5, especially with the bull bar. Everything is functional and does the job, and the interior is really comfortable when travelling for extended periods of time...

1993 Toyota Corolla RV Seca review

We bought this awful green-coloured 1993 RV Toyota Corolla from Brian Hilton Toyota in Gosford back in February 1994. It was an ex-demo car with 3000km on the clock at the time. It was first registered on the 30th of December 1993, perhaps to boost sales figures for the month? They certainly were not a cheap car when new - $28,000 and this was not the top of the range 'Ultima' model...

2009 Toyota Aurion Touring SE review

CarAdvice continues to be the most informative automotive website in Australia. (Stop it, we're blushing! - Stevo) I always look forward to reading the Owner Reviews and I’ve decided to give it a go and submit my own. My previous car was a 1995 manual Nissan Maxima, which was flawless for almost 20 years (bar the embarrassing faded paint)...

2009 Toyota Prius review

I didn't see many owner reviews for the Prius and thought I'd talk about my experience with my blue egg. This was definitely not a car I thought I was going to enjoy, but let's start from the start. I was looking for an upgrade last year as my work situation had changed and I'd now be driving about two and a half hours a day to and from work in partial peak hour traffic...
