2015 Toyota Corolla Rz Review

Most journalism these days comes from enthusiasm about performance rather than an independent view of the overall car itself. Most reviews comparing a Corolla to other brands, the Corolla never wins, but guess which sells the most? It's the Corolla and there is a bloody good reason why...

2005 Toyota Prius i-Tech Hybrid Review

We bought her in 2007 with 30,000 km. We sold her in 2016 with 310,000 Km and she never missed a beat! Sure, they aren't a WRX , but that's not their mission. Brilliant Toyota reliability means even now the new owner will get many years of economical trouble free motoring? I bought a 2009 Prius I tech and gave the 2005 to the wife...

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 Landcruiser Prado GXL (4x4) Review

In the UK we get the Active, which closely matches the GXL. I have been running mine for 3 months and very pleased with the economy (6l-8l/100km) depending how I use it. Using it on the farm it is better than my previous two Land Rover Discoveries (like the time I was idling and the engine let go at 25,000 miles...

2016 Toyota Kluger GX (4x4) Review

Point to note before I start this review, I don't own the Kluger that I’m writing about, however I've spent 9 days living with one due to renting the vehicle. From the outside it looks okay, certainly not standout good looks that’s for sure, but it’s not the ugliest thing running around either...

2014 Toyota Aurion Sportivo ZR6 Review

This Toyota Aurion ZR6 replaced a Toyota Camry VXI, with a 3000cc engine. I have owned many Toyota's for over 30 years. The ZR6 has everything I need in a car and with only one option fitted - a sun roof. Fuel consumption is mainly under 10L/100km, and driving at a constant 100kph I often see under 7 L/100km...

2016 Toyota Landcruiser Prado Kakadu (4x4) Review

We have bought the 2016 Prado Kakadu in Feb this year. We have towed with a 1 tonne camper van and didn't even notice it was there. We crossed over the range from Armidale to Port Macquarie and it handled the windy roads with ease. We travelled over 1000kms towing and still made half a tank sitting on the speed limit and driving to the road conditions...

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...

2014 Toyota Aurion Sportivo Zr6 Review

Been driving with my Toyota Aurion Sportivo ZR6 for almost a year and a half now. While this may not be an adequate time to judge reliability - does one ever need to worry about the reliability of a Toyota? On paper, the Aurion is a 3.5L V6 that provides a peak torque of 336Nm at 4700rpm and 200Kw of peak power at 6200rpm all to the front wheels...

2015 Toyota 86 GTS Review

I've always wanted a sports car but never could have one due to needing a certain level of practicality. This time I bought a car I really wanted and I've never looked back! I love the way this car handles and rides. You can feel every bump in the road but in a fun, engaging way. The steering and low position make you feel connected with the road...
