Toyota Owner Car Reviews

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...

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...

2003 Toyota Crown Estate Athlete V review

My car actually is a 2003 Toyota Crown Estate Athlete V. Quite a mouthful, I know, but you'll want to get used to it, because I guarantee you won't be able to leave the house in it without someone asking you what on Earth it is. The Crown was only released in Australia in the late ’80s, but the production of this car didn't stop in Japan, though, hence I had to buy one that was freshly imported...

2013 Toyota LandCruiser Prado GXL (4x4) review

Why did I buy a Toyota Prado? Let’s address the elephant in the room to begin: it wasn’t for the badge or the price. Everyone knows that Toyotas by nature are overpriced. So why did I buy it then? Seven seats, lots of cabin space, comfy seats, economical engine and reliable off-road abilities...

2011 Toyota Yaris YR review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied. I was really worried about the size of the Yaris, as I had never owned one beforehand. After driving one, it was hard to believe it was a small car. It has lots of leg room in both the front and back seats – and I'm just on 180cm tall – with lots of head room...

2013 Toyota 86 GT review

In 2013, I purchased my Toyota 86 GT sight unseen and based purely on the glowing recommendations from the world’s motoring journalists. What followed was an epic seven-hour drive down the Alpine National Highway from the dealership at Cooma to Melbourne. My initial impressions of the car were that the seats and overall driving position were excellent...

2004 Toyota Echo Sportivo review

Before my Echo Sportivo, I had owned a Toyota Starlet and found a chance to upgrade to a slightly newer car while keeping all the positives of the Starlet. These positives were Toyota build quality, fantastic fuel economy and nimbleness. I had been browsing the web for a few months for an Echo Sportivo to be listed for sale that was well looked after, as they are quite rare and some are not well looked after...

2003 Toyota Corolla Sportivo review

Having been a die-hard Toyota LandCruiser owner for many years, driving an exciting performance car seemed like a distant memory, a memory that included Falcon GTs, Valiant Pacers et cetera. To say that I was astonished after driving a Corolla Sportivo VVTL-i for the first time would only be half of the description...

2014 Toyota 86 GT review

I just sold my Toyota 86, and it has turned out to be the cheapest new car I have ever owned – and probably the best driver’s car I have ever had. I purchased a brand-new Toyota 86 GT in February 2015 for $31,500 on the road. Three years and 30,000km later, I have just sold it for $22,500. It has been a privilege to have such a remarkable car as my daily drive for a piddling $3000 a year...

2005 Toyota Corolla Sportivo review

I am the proud owner of a 2005 Toyota Corolla Sportivo. I fell in love with this car after my uncle and aunt bought one new from the factory. At the time I was driving another car (a 1975 Toyota Celica) which is also an awesome car in its own rights. Whilst most Sportivos are not the most sporty of cars (when compared to Ford Focus, WRX or Astra Turbo, that is), they have lots of potential...

2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid review

The year 2011. I was looking for a very fuel efficient, reliable and cheap to maintain family car to replace my humble Hyundai Excel that had serviced our family needs for sometime. There were two options on my shortlist – the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Honda Civic Hybrid. I discarded all of the other options (including my then, and still favourite, Holden Commodore)...
