Nissan Patrol v Toyota LandCruiser Comparison

The traditional off-road battleground in the 'Large SUV' segment (which has now morphed into 'Upper Large SUV', believe it or not) has, for decades now, boiled down to a two-way stoush between the Toyota LandCruiser and Nissan Patrol. It's been quite some time though since Nissan fans have been able to enter the battle on even terms...

Ford Everest Titanium v Toyota Prado VX: Comparison Review

Toyota Prado — it’s a name synonymous with off-roading and, evidently, astronomical sales. Over 16,000 in 2014 to be exact, for a market share of a little over 15 per cent. So, when Ford Australia announced that the Ranger-based Ford Everest would take on the Prado both in terms of price and off-road ability, we packed our camping gear and hit the bush for some proper off-road driving...

Hyundai Tucson Elite 1.6L v Nissan X-Trail ST-L 4WD v Toyota RAV4 GXL v Volkswagen Golf Alltrack : Comparison review

The recent suite of updates added to the evergreen Toyota RAV4 suggests that the just-released 2016 facelift moves the game forward by a tangible margin for this popular mid-sized SUV range. Sharper styling, a lift in cabin features and finishes, plus improved ride, handling, comfort and safety all carry the collective promise of game-lifting and enhanced value...

Ford Everest Trend v Toyota Fortuner Crusade comparison

Note: Toyota has revised ground clearance for the Fortuner from 279mm to 225mm. Few vehicles attract one-eyed partisanship like the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux utes. A growing number of buyers frankly sit firmly in the one camp while jeering at the other — as our comments board and social media pages will tell you...

Mazda 3 v Toyota Corolla v Hyundai i30 : Small hatch comparison

The Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Hyundai i30 cumulatively claim a bigger chunk of Australia’s new vehicle market than any other trio of rivals. Remarkably, they represent more than one in every 10 sales of not just passenger cars but all vehicles sold across the country, including SUVs, utes, vans and trucks...

Hyundai Tucson v Mazda CX-5 v Subaru Forester v Toyota RAV4: Medium Diesel SUV comparison

The just-released Hyundai Tucson is gunning to shoot Mazda’s CX-5 off its perch as the top-selling mid-sized SUV range in Australia. And if first impressions are anything to go by, the Korean challenge to Japanese domination looks very real indeed...

Toyota Landcruiser Prado Altitude v Mitsubishi Pajero GLS : Comparison Review

The Toyota Landcruiser Prado has long been the go-to choice for drivers after seven seats and serious off-road ability. Does the Landcruiser Prado Altitude live up to that name?

Toyota Camry Hybrid Atara SL v Honda Accord Sport Hybrid v Lexus IS300h F Sport : Hybrid sedan comparison

Hybrid cars are not exactly a big ticket item in Australia, especially when you compare our market to somewhere such as Japan or the US. Nevertheless, there are options from Toyota, Honda and Lexus for those with green-tinged glasses. Out of the 260,000-odd passenger cars registered to fleets and private buyers alike over the first half of 2015, fewer than 5000 were petrol-electric hybrids...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Toyota HiLux Black Edition : Comparison review

The challenger takes on the champion. That’s the best way to describe this twin test, which puts Australia’s long-reining best-selling ute, the Toyota HiLux, up against the increasingly popular Ford Ranger. The Ford is catching the Toyota in terms of sales: in 2014, there were 38,126 HiLux models sold in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, while a total of 26,219 Rangers were sold (4x2 and 4x4 combined)...

Kia Rio v Toyota Yaris : Comparison review

Buying a light car on an extreme budget is something that thousands of buyers do every year in Australia, and here we’ve assembled two of the picks of the crop to see which value-focused five-door hatchback deserves your dollar. The just-updated 2015 Kia Rio S has seen a range of changes inside and out – revised bumpers, a new-look grille and a re-trimmed interior being the chief talking points...

Medium Sedan Comparison : Toyota Camry v Mazda 6 v Hyundai Sonata v Subaru Liberty

Medium cars are struggling in the face of an SUV uprising. Quite literally, the raising-up of body height and seating position has allowed the sport utility vehicle to act both like a magician entrancing customers, and a grim reaper destroying traditional sedan and wagons. There are massive upsides for those buyers who are determined to fly in the face of fashion, however...
