2019 Toyota HiLux SR5 v Volkswagen Amarok Core V6 comparison: Off-road

So, you've got around $55,000 to spend on your next ute. You're tossing up between a trusty four-cylinder diesel Toyota HiLux SR5 and venturing out for what seems like the bargain of the century, a turbocharged V6 Volkswagen Amarok Core diesel. Bargain of the century is a relative term, simply because most other manufacturers in this segment churn out four-cylinder diesel jobs like they're going out of fashion...

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor v Toyota LandCruiser 78 Series GXL comparison

If you're going to blow the best part of 80 grand on some off-road metal, which way should you go?

2019 Suzuki Vitara Turbo v Toyota C-HR Koba comparison

You're looking at divergent ways to produce a small crossover SUV: the boxy and unpretentious Suzuki Vitara in updated Series II guise versus the uncompromising Toyota C-HR, with slinky silhouette and sleek body sculpting to make it as 'un-Toyota' as possible. Despite the different approaches from each Japanese brand, the target demographics are similar...

Holden Acadia v Mazda CX-9 v Toyota Kluger comparison

Seven-seat SUVs are fast becoming Australia’s must-have family utility tool. Station wagons are passé, and the flexibility to add two extra passengers at a moment’s notice is a lure too strong to ignore. To put some of the more urban-friendly family haulers to the test, we’ve assembled the Toyota Kluger and Mazda CX-9 and aimed them directly at the face of the recently introduced Holden Acadia – Holden's new family hero arriving via American subsidiary, GMC...

2019 Toyota Corolla range review

Believe it or not, I’m pretty excited at the prospect of this 2019 Toyota Corolla range review. Not so long ago, you’d have thought I was mad for making that statement, but stay with me for a minute… The Corolla looks better than it has for a long time, it’s more accomplished than it’s ever been in an engineering sense, and there is more than one engine variant worth considering – one an excellent hybrid drive system...

2018 Toyota Corolla v Volkswagen Golf comparison

The new Toyota Corolla took us aback when it arrived a few months ago. Far from familiar, its maker has driven the market's top-selling passenger car down a bolder path. Its design is edgier, its handling sharper, its safety tech leads the class, and a hybrid drivetrain is available at all specification levels. And it’s more expensive...

Ford Ranger Raptor v Toyota HiLux Rugged X v Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate TDI580 comparison

Australians have always been fond of turning utes into status symbols – once of the two-doored, V8 variety. The market is quite different today, but the fundamental desires for head-turning load-luggers remain. Enter the trio of desirable workhorses you see here: the Ford Ranger Raptor, Toyota HiLux Rugged X and Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate TDI580...

2018 Mazda 6 GT v Toyota Camry SL V6 comparison

Could this be the family car battle of head versus heart? The Toyota Camry SL V6 and Mazda 6 GT turbo both stick to a well-worn medium sedan formula, although manage to avoid looking like carbon copies of each other – both aesthetically and mechanically...

2019 Toyota Corolla v Hyundai i30 v Mazda 3 comparison

It’s fair to presume a couple of things when you consider that non-premium small cars are amongst the biggest-selling – make that the biggest-selling – passenger cars out there. And it’s also easy to presume that you don’t get much goodness for your modest spend...

2018 Holden Calais 2.0T v Toyota Camry SL Hybrid comparison

Comparing a Holden Commodore/Calais and Toyota Camry would have been incongruous until this year, when both entered new lives as imports. Now it seems perfectly natural to pit this front-drive pair against one another, despite a few differences in design and execution. It's the German-made Calais hatchback with turbocharged petrol engine versus the Japanese Camry sedan with petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain...

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...
