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 Toyota Corolla ZR hybrid review

Tech like a Prius, but at a much sharper price and in a much sharper suit. A hybrid might not be the first thing you think of when looking for a small car, but the Corolla hybrid makes a compelling case for itself.

2019 Toyota Corolla SX Hybrid review

The new Corolla has gone from being the boring option to one of the top picks in the small car class. In SX Hybrid guise, it's also ripper value.

2019 Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport review

Toyota's new Corolla is bolder and sportier than ever before - perhaps more even than we could have ever imagined - but has it lost some practicality in the process? Jez Spinks drives. MORE: Corolla v Mazda 3 v Hyundai i30 comparison...

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...

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...

Toyota Corolla GR Sport, Trek revealed

Toyota Europe has revealed a pair of new Corolla variants for the Geneva motor show, offering two very different flavours depending on buyer preference. First up is the Corolla GR Sport (pictured in silver), which in concept is in a similar vein to the Ford Focus ST-Line – offering sporty looks and equipment without any powertrain upgrades...

Toyota confirms Corolla GRMN, sorta - report

Toyota has pretty much confirmed it will produce a proper hot hatch based on the new Corolla, according to a new report out of Europe. Speaking with Dutch publication Toyota's deputy chief designer, Toshio Kanei, said a fully-fledged Corolla GRMN is "certainly realistic". "We are already working on that...

2018 Toyota Corolla recalled

Toyota Australia has issued a recall for the new-generation Corolla hatchback fitted with the 2.0-litre petrol engine over concerns CVT-equipped models could have faulty transmissions.

2008 Toyota Corolla Conquest review

My Australian motoring experience started early one morning at Kingsford Smith Airport in a rented BA Ford Falcon XR6. I remember my wife looking at the purple (ish) car with its added aerodynamic features and then back at me with an “Ooookay”, a bit of a pause and then with her best newly-found Australian accent, “Let’s go, mate!”...

2018 Toyota Corolla Ascent Sport (Hybrid) review

I write from the perspective of an Uber driver. I have been driving a 2016 Corolla Hybrid for the past year, and decided to take a look at the new 2019 model that was launched last week. I was able to take the car for a short test drive around the Gosford area north of Sydney. The test drive included some regular city streets as well as a freeway section...

2006 Toyota Corolla Ascent Seca review

In the last six months, my wife and I traded our 11-year-old white automatic ex-rental Toyota Corolla Ascent and upgraded to a much nicer (and car enthusiast aligned) manual Mazda 3 SP25 GT sedan in Soul Red. Obviously, loving the new car and will write a review once I have done 5000km on the clock, but today's review is all about the trusty old Corolla...

1993 Toyota Corolla RV Seca review

I suspect that, from the earliest of times, we’ve always viewed the past as being far better than it actually was. Speaking for myself, I’ve found the older I get, the faster, stronger and better behaved I was when I was young. In researching this, I came across this quote about 'modern youths': “The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise...
