2018 Toyota Prado GX review

While the GXL is the quintessential go-to for so many Prado buyers, there's also the entry-grade GX manual as an option for those on a tighter budget.

2018 Toyota HiLux Rugged X manual review

Rugged by name, rugged by nature. Toyota has long maintained the HiLux is unbreakable, and its newest flagship, the Rugged X, wears its off-road credentials on its sleeve. But while it may be tough on the outside, the interior plays up its plushness.

2018 Toyota RAV4 GX AWD review

The $36K Toyota RAV4 GX AWD now comes with a greater array of active safety and infotainment features as it nears the runout phase. A good example of basic, trouble-free crossover motoring that will do the job without fuss.

2018 Toyota Fortuner GX review

While the Fortuner is the most obvious rugged off-roader in the Toyota stable, you might not have considered the manual gearbox. Perhaps you should.

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...

Alborz jets to the US to drive the new-generation Toyota Corolla.    ...

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 Camry SL review

Toyota is pretty fed up with the Camry's iconography: whitegoods, cardigans and bowls clubs. So it claims to have made a clean break with this new one.

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...

2007 Toyota Aurion Presara review

I was looking for a second-hand car and was tossing between a Toyota Camry, Toyota Aurion or Honda Accord. In the end, I saw this handsome metallic black Toyota Aurion Presara 2007 with beige/stone interior. I personally did not know much about the Aurion and had not done extensive research about the car. The Camry and Accord were much more familiar cars to me...

1989 Toyota MR2 review

I have owned this car for the best part of five years now, and since owning it, it has never missed a beat. The car is a 1989 Toyota MR2 1.6-litre N/A manual, probably Toyota's first affordable sports car. The party piece of this car is its mid-engine rear-wheel drive two-seater combo, which at the time was only found in very expensive exotics...

2008 Toyota RAV4 SX6 review

We moved to Australia from the UK back in 2013, and needed to find transport pretty quickly with work commitments and house-hunting duties giving us a three-week window of opportunity. We left a Mercedes C220 and a Ford Focus 1.8 behind, and were looking to buy one mid-sized SUV powerful enough to tow, it had to be reliable with decent performance, and have reasonable standard equipment including a sunroof and climate control air-con...

2018 Toyota CH-R Koba (2WD) review

I absolutely love this car. I'm so happy – it’s so comfortable, easy to drive, and looks awesome. I looked around a lot to see what I wanted. I looked at the Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-3, but all the time I kept going back to the CH-R Koba. This car is so gorgeous to look at. The number of people who stop me and comment how much they love the look of my car is amazing...
