2007 Toyota Corolla Review

The brand new Toyota Corolla is finally here and looking to overthrow the Holden VE Commodore as Australia's number one selling vehicle.   Made in Japan and powered by a 100kW 1.8-litre engine, the new Corolla is taking on the aging Mazda3, the soon to be updated Ford Focus and Mitsubishi's nearly replaced Lancer...

Toyota Prius vs Honda Civic Hybrid Road Test

Update: We drove the new Toyota Prius for three months. Read our experience with the car:Prius Review Long Term I often get criticised by some of my ‘greenie’ friends about polluting the environment with my day job. So I’ve thrown my lead-foot towel in for a fortnight to figure out what the deal is with this Hybrid malarky...

2007 Toyota Prado GX Turbo Diesel Road Test

Toyota recently announced the addition of a 3.0-litre turbo-Diesel engine to its ranks. What’s so good about that I hear you ask? Well this turbo-Diesel motor is capable of returning a 9.2-litre/100km fuel efficiency figure – which for a vehicle that weighs just under two-tones, that’s not a bad feat...

Toyota Aurion Review

Test model: Toyota Aurion Sportivo ZR6 Options fitted: Moonroof and Satellite navigation at $4850 all up – these are the only options on the ZR6 and are good value when you consider some European car makers charge this much for Sat Nav alone...

2007 Toyota Camry Sportivo Road Test

2007 Toyota Camry Sportivo – Road Test Test model: Toyota Camry Sportivo with five-speed automatic transmission Options fitted: Leather trim $1500 – It’s nice and supple and at this price you might consider it if you had small kids Moonroof $1650 – Again, this is on the low side as far as electric roofs go, and adds another level of luxury to the car Recommended retail price: $34,500 (without the options above) although you can get the Sportivo with a manual transmission for $33,000 On road price: Around $37,800 but Toyota plays in the volume game with Camry, so it would pay to shop around...

2007 Toyota Camry Altise Road Test

To me, the Toyota Camry has always been quite a bland, conservative and boat like vehicle. It was never able to handle anything like its Aussie competitors and was always styled to appeal to a broad range of people – of whom many were bowls goers. Well, there has been a massive shake-up in Camry-land...

2006 Toyota Tarago GLI 4cyl Road Test

Ever since I can remember, the Toyota Tarago has been the iconic people mover. Not a single day goes by without seeing a Tarago ferrying a bunch of people around. As an enthusiast of anything loud and fast, I can’t honestly say that I was looking forward to driving the Tarago, but I had a task ahead of me; which was to find out what the Tarago was all about...

2006 Hyundai Getz vs Toyota Yaris Road Test

Toyota Yaris - Paul Right before getting into the Yaris, I handed back the Landcruiser Sahara I was driving the week before. As you can imagine, the size difference was alarming and took a bit of time to get used to! The Toyota Yaris has flooded advertising slots, boasting clever thinking and stacks of features...

2006 Toyota Rav4 Cruiser Road Test

Many moons ago the Toyota Rav4 started life in a niche market, most people would have chuckled at the fact that it was only really a ‘half-way’ 4WD. Compare that to today and there are soft-roaders everywhere. They have evolved from being small and nearly useless off-road to much larger means of transport...

2006 Toyota Landcruiser LC100 Sahara V8 Road Test

The Landcruiser Sahara isn’t big as much as it is massive. The Sahara takes tasks such as parallel parking and turning corners to a whole new wayward level. But, you don’t buy a large road hog like the Landcruiser Sahara for zipping around the city and picking up the kids from school – well normal people don’t...
