A 13-year-old's painstaking restoration of his Toyota MR2

Not many 13-year-old kids own a car. Even fewer own a sports car they’re painstakingly restoring back to original condition in order to go racing. But that’s exactly what Andy Ericson, aged 13, is doing with his 1990 Toyota MR2. Andy bought the down-at-heel second-generation (W20) MR2 as a project car at the height of last year's coronavirus pandemic...

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...

1988 Toyota Landcruiser (4x4) review

Well, 33 years ago at 21 years old I decided I wanted a 4x4 ute. I started looking around, but back then just about everyone in the rural areas was driving a Cruiser, so after a couple of conversations with the car yard fella I drove out with my new HJ 75 Series ute. I honestly felt pretty good driving home until I hit my first hill and cars just started going around me...

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...
