2019 Toyota Corolla ZR petrol review

Despite the increasing popularity of hybrid motivation, two out of three Corollas remain pure petrol power. And while the flagship ZR four-banger mightn't be the shrewdest choice in the hatchback range, we discover it's oh-so likeable indeed.

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, James Wong: Toyota Corolla ZR Hybrid

My winning pick for 2018 is the new Toyota Corolla Hybrid. Shortly after the all-new model launched locally in August I reviewed the mid-spec SX variant. Why a Corolla? The new-generation model is such a leap forward in so many ways, and personally I believe it’s a genuine top pick in the small-car segment...

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018

Welcome to the inaugural CarAdvice Winners Circle, our debut annual award program showcasing our editorial team’s motoring highlight releases of the year. After some long and hard consideration of the pros and cons of more traditional award formats, it was ultimately reader and car industry feedback – through surveys, garage day chats and even a focus group – that moulded exactly the form Winners Circle would take...

2019 Kia Cerato v Toyota Corolla comparison | Best small car?

Kia’s Cerato has a few rough edges, but for many buyers, these are smoothed out by the Korean hatchback’s excellent ownership credentials that start with its sharp drive-away pricing and finish with that generous factory warranty (unless owned even longer than seven years, of course). And in between, there’s a practical and comfortable interior that makes the Cerato roomy transport for a small family...

2018 Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport Hybrid review: The rental

I hired a Toyota Corolla GX Hybrid in New Zealand for 8 days. This car is the same spec as an Australian-delivered Ascent Sport Hybrid with the addition of standard sat-nav and DAB. I drove this car all over the South Island of NZ and did nearly 2700km in total. I enjoy researching new cars and I specifically chose this make and model to hire as I wanted to try out the new hybrid powertrain and advanced technology this model offers...

1980 Toyota Corolla CS review

Not everyone wants to have everything done for them. Some people would prefer to add every last ingredient to their spaghetti bolognese, while others prefer to buy a tin of Campbells. Me however, I am the former, which is why I still own my first car which I bought 9 years ago for $800. It's my 1980 Toyota Corolla 4-door sedan, with the big block 1...

2018 Toyota Corolla Sx (hybrid) review

There's been a lot said and written about the new (2018) Corolla, but 6 months into owning mine I'm seeing many, many more on our roads. It seems obvious that it is winning - and will continue to win - over new buyers or those upgrading from a previous model. I've always loved or "been into" cars and many question why I drive a Corolla now, and why it was the replacement of choice for my Range Rover Evoque...

2018 Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport review

Well, the time to upgrade my beloved Holden Cruze had come. A couple of issues with my Cruze allowed me to scrap Holden from the consideration. In the end, I had three cars I was seriously interested in: Hyundai i30 Toyota Corolla Mazda 3 Funnily enough, they were the best three selling cars at the time, so I thought it didn’t really matter what I chose, because they were all very good cars...
