2020 Toyota HiLux SR5 Hi-rider review: The Thailand driver

The Toyota HiLux is becoming ever more popular in Australia, with a long list of variants and gaining critical acclaim in Australia and other countries. The introduction of the new model will only cement its reputation in the highly competitive pick-up segment of the market...

2019 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) review

I bought my 2019 Hilux SR in January 2020 due to its excellent resale and solid Toyota build quality. I prefer the front look of the SR compared to the SR5, especially with the bull bar. Everything is functional and does the job, and the interior is really comfortable when travelling for extended periods of time...

2017 Toyota HiLux Workmate (4x4) review

My Toyota HiLux WorkMate 4x4 dual-cab is best described as unexceptionally capable. Now, I must qualify this review firstly, I didn't buy this car – it was chosen by the bean counters on price, reputation and perceived reliability. Of the previous fleet vehicles used by the business, the HiLuxes had the least issues, if any, compared to previous Mazdas, Fords and Nissans...

2007 Toyota HiLux SR review

I bought the car off my dad, as I needed a new car and I work as a tradie. I wasn't the biggest fan of it at first, mainly the looks and how it drove, but over time I added my own touches to the exterior. The car is rather basic in terms of technology for its year, however it has all the main things you want in a car: AUX and Bluetooth, a semi-decent stereo system, ABS, and two airbags...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

With the new crop of dual cab utes around, it is hard to decide which ones suits you better. Do I go for engine power, features, size or name? Mid-2016 I picked up my 2016 HiLux in hope that it would satisfy everything that I need. I loved the standard rear-view camera and the cool box that comes standard with the SR as well as the 7-inch touch screen...

2006 Toyota HiLux SR5 Review

The high-spec SR5 looks staunch with big roll bars and chrome trim. Mine's in silver. It's a big truck, and handles like a truck! I love the simplicity of my 2006 model. There are no chimes or annoying bells, and the quiet engine is very easy to work on and maintain. I don't like the plastic headlights, but I'll upgrade these to LED soon...

2002 Toyota HiLux SR5 (4x4) Review

When I see advertisements of the latest dual-cab utes (that's 'trucks' to Holden and Ford ad gurus), I take it as fact that if you don't tow a jetski/skidsteer/bull to market at least every weekend, you might as well hand in your man license and let your mum tow 3.5 ton on your behalf...

2013 Toyota HiLux Workmate Review

2013 Toyota Hilux TGN16R 2.7 Litre five speed manual transmission single cab chassis August 18, 2016. A three year old vehicle.... The Bad Bits, I generously rate the (expletive deleted) manual gearbox with a score of 2/10 for overall performance. It is often hard / very hard to downshift, it is sticky and is very easy to grate, grind or crunch gears on normal upshifts or downshifts...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

I have had my 2016 HiLux for over a month and I do like it. I tow a 1.7 tonne trailer most of the time and it handles great. The power, the steering and the breaks are great and such a nice ride. Like the old HiLux it has lots of drink holders, which is a big tick for me but not much cabin storage like behind the rear seats, this needs to change...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

I received my new HiLux 2000km ago as a new work ute replacing a 2013 Colorado. First impressions are good. It has zero turbo lag, excellent fuel economy (best 8.7 L/100 avg 9.6/100), Excellent blue tooth, easy to drive and very little road noise. The average stuff Power button is a joke, all it does is make the accelerator so sensitive it makes it jerky to drive...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR5 (4x4) Review

After driving a toyota hiace van for many years, last year I purchased a 2015 HiLux SR5 double cab pick up purely on the fact that my Hiace had got me to work, "whether I liked it or not" reliably for 15 years. Even after reading many reviews that put it out to pasture, I chose the HiLux...
