2020 Toyota Corolla sedan review

Despite a 16-month wait since the launch of the hatch, the new Corolla sedan has arrived and follows closely in the fine-form footsteps of its five-door sibling.

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...

Despite a 16-month wait since the launch of the hatch, the new Corolla sedan has arrived and follows closely in the fine-form footsteps of its five-door sibling.

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...

We’re testing flagship variants here, with sticker prices between $30,000 and $40,000...

Peugeot 208 named 2020 European Car of the Year

The new Peugeot 208 has beat out six other finalists to claim Europe's Car of the Year title for 2020. The French marque’s hatchback finished with 281 points, 39 ahead of the runner-up, Tesla’s Model 3, which claimed 242 points. The award was presented behind closed doors at the Palexpo convention centre in Geneva following the cancellation of the 2020 Geneva Motor Show over concerns around the spread of coronavirus...

Finally we can say "Oh what a feeling!"

My brother-in-law owns a 2008 TRD HiLux 4000SL, which acts as a regular reminder of Toyota Australia’s attempt more than a decade ago to tempt newer and younger customers to the brand. Or, as the company might as well have also said: to eradicate the disparaging “white goods on wheels” comments associated with its cars...

Toyota GR Corolla hot hatch in the works - report

Toyota could be working on a hotted-up GR Corolla – at least, if reports from Europe are to be believed.  According to Auto Express, the pumped-up Corolla will be powered by the same engine as  the GR Yaris – a turbocharged three-cylinder 1.6-litre petrol engine, paired with a six-speed manual transmission...

Beat the price rises: currency pressure poised to push up the cost of cars in 2020

After three decades of record low prices and affordability, Australia’s top-selling cars are on the brink of becoming more expensive. Car companies are warning dealers they can no longer absorb the cost of unfavourable exchange rates. They have been told prices of popular models could rise by between $500 and $1000 – and discounts will be not as generous as they have been in the recent past...

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...
