Video: 2020 Toyota HiLux Rogue review

The 2020 Toyota HiLux, Australia’s annual best-selling car for four years straight, is about as ubiquitous as it gets on our roads.

Toyota LandCruiser v Nissan Patrol off-road comparison

Toyota LandCruiser versus Nissan Patrol. It’s an old-time battle with some all-time hardware. Although the LandCruiser was facelifted in 2016, its bones date back to 2007. The Nissan Patrol was more recently refreshed in 2019, after launching as an all-new, petrol-only platform in 2010.

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.

Toyota and Subaru are collaborating on a new fully-electric SUV

Images of an upcoming fully-electric Toyota SUV show the striking similarities between it and a Subaru concept shown earlier this year. It's believed the unnamed concept will be the Subaru Evoltis and will share its electric 'skateboard' platform – as well as much of its SUV body – with the mysterious Toyota, first seen in patent filings revealed last month...

Production of Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 appears to end

Production of the current Subaru BRZ looks set to wrap up. A memo posted to the brand’s Japanese website said that any new orders for the car could only be satisfied by remaining dealer stock, and heavily implied that production of the current model was ending. A spokesperson for the brand's Australia division told CarAdvice they were currently "awaiting clarification from Subaru in Japan regarding production...

A patent application released in the US points to a potential new engine development by Toyota, leading to a raft of speculation from American publications. The application, uncovered TheFastLaneTruck.com, was initially filed in December 2019. However, with reports Toyota will drop its V8 range, which powers a selection of SUVs and pick-ups in the US, the timing points to an engine that might fit those applications...

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...
