Spec shootout: 2021 Hyundai i30 Elite sedan v Toyota Corolla SX sedan

The world of the humble small sedan has become a little more broad-ranging of late. Traditional three-box small cars have grown, and buyers have moved away from medium sedans, thus somehow creating a new, melded category. Hatch versus sedan arguments have raged for decades, but there’s no denying the neat and almost elegant lines of the saloon option, particularly as manufacturers have turned to designs that inject a level of style and intrigue into the segment...

2020 Toyota Camry Ascent Sport Hybrid review

Although the CVT noise is a bit intrusive at times, the car is remarkably quiet when cruising. Performance is as brisk as say a VW Jetta but the way the car gathers speed just seems linear rather than stepped. The handling is very good and I guess the weight of the battery pack over the rear wheels helps. Fuel economy in the city is outstanding at 4...

A car so rare that I couldn't even select the correct variant in the drop down boxes. The 1964 Toyota Crown ute is a magnet. A magnet for just about every old bloke at every shopping centre or servo.
