Options Fitted: Moonroof - by Alborz Fallah It was one of those days in Brisbane, the traffic on the centenary highway was backed up all the way to the Jindalee exit, Mogill road wasn't moving, Coronation drive and Milton road were both blocked, and I was suppose to pick up a car in an hour...

CarAdvice rating: Recommended Retail Price: $39,990 (plus ORC) Options available: Metallic Paint, Park Assist, Sunroof - by Matt Brogan It would seem there’s a running theme to my road tests lately, the ever-popular SUV...

2007 Toyota Tarago V6 Ultima Road Test

It wasn’t that long ago that I reported on the face lifted Toyota Tarago. I drove around in the 4-cylinder GLI model and was constantly let down by the lack of buzz and power from the small motor when the car was loaded with people...

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...
