2016 Toyota Fortuner Crusade review

It's a quiet work day back in October 2015, my phone is buzzing in my pocket, so I pull it out and glance at the caller ID – the wife, better answer quick. Before I can even get out the word 'hello', I get "I've won a car!" yelled down the line. I manage to get out a 'what?' before I get the details from the wife. "I won a raffle and I've won a Toyota Fortuner...

1998 Toyota Starlet Life review

There's something to be said about simplicity. In a world of ever-increasing gadgets and complexity, it's a surprising breath of fresh air to step into a car with almost none of the mod-cons. The 1998 Toyota Starlet (manual) is just that – simple and refreshing...

2018 Toyota LandCruiser Sahara (4x4) review

One month after purchasing our brand-new LandCruiser 200 Series Sahara, we hitched a caravan and embarked on a four-week trip from Melbourne to the Red Centre. The Sahara was amazing in the way it towed the three-tonne caravan. It was both the towing ease and, more importantly, the weight of the Sahara itself that kept the caravan very stable in every situation...

2017 Toyota Camry RZ SE review

I purchased my 2017 Camry RZ due to the pure fact that it’s a lot of car for $30,000, and the zero per cent finance that the Australian-built Camrys were selling with was a drawcard that turned out to be too good to resist. It looks sporty, and I get a few people looking at me as I drive past (which is odd as it is a Camry)...

2001 Toyota Corolla Conquest Seca review

I have a 2001 Toyota Corolla and have owned it 17 years now. I have never had one single problem with it. I bought this car because of Toyota’s reliable reputation, it was a very nice-looking car back in 2001, and due to its compact size. I had owned a couple of Toyotas in the past and knew that they were good and reliable cars...

2018 Toyota Camry Ascent Sport review

I took delivery of my new Camry in March. It replaced a 2010 Honda Accord Euro that I loved, and I considered many other cars, including the previous Camry SL, Corolla ZR sedan, and Mazda 3 and 6 sedans. I didn’t think any of them matched up to the Euro, and I would have loved it if Honda had the new version available locally, but as it didn’t, I had to get another option...

2011 Toyota Rukus Build 3 review

  A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been provided with this review. This baby is a beast! A 2.4-litre hottie. It powers up the hills of South Gippsland with ease, and has an awesome sports-shift auto so you can relive your old manual days if you are feeling nostalgic. There's enough room in the back with the seats down to fit pretty much anything...

2007 Toyota Aurion Presara review

I was looking for a second-hand car and was tossing between a Toyota Camry, Toyota Aurion or Honda Accord. In the end, I saw this handsome metallic black Toyota Aurion Presara 2007 with beige/stone interior. I personally did not know much about the Aurion and had not done extensive research about the car. The Camry and Accord were much more familiar cars to me...

1989 Toyota MR2 review

I have owned this car for the best part of five years now, and since owning it, it has never missed a beat. The car is a 1989 Toyota MR2 1.6-litre N/A manual, probably Toyota's first affordable sports car. The party piece of this car is its mid-engine rear-wheel drive two-seater combo, which at the time was only found in very expensive exotics...

2008 Toyota RAV4 SX6 review

We moved to Australia from the UK back in 2013, and needed to find transport pretty quickly with work commitments and house-hunting duties giving us a three-week window of opportunity. We left a Mercedes C220 and a Ford Focus 1.8 behind, and were looking to buy one mid-sized SUV powerful enough to tow, it had to be reliable with decent performance, and have reasonable standard equipment including a sunroof and climate control air-con...

2018 Toyota CH-R Koba (2WD) review

I absolutely love this car. I'm so happy – it’s so comfortable, easy to drive, and looks awesome. I looked around a lot to see what I wanted. I looked at the Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-3, but all the time I kept going back to the CH-R Koba. This car is so gorgeous to look at. The number of people who stop me and comment how much they love the look of my car is amazing...
