  • Toyota launch the e-Palette

    Akio Toyoda, President of Toyota Motor Corporation today revealed a rather left of field take on the increasingly sexy topic of autonomous driving. The vision is called e-Palette and basically is a mobile shop that comes to you. The concept vehicle looks like a futuristic caravan, or as Toyota...
  • Farewell Toyota: Australian Manufacturing ended today – Here’s some interesting facts and figures

    It’s a milestone day for Toyota in Australia, and a sad one for the staff – Toyota has officially ceased production of cars in Australia after more than half a century. 3,000 people attended a ceremony today at the Altona plant where Toyota Australia President Dave Buttner spoke glowingly...
  • All new Toyota Camry coming in November

    In just a few months, the all new Toyota Camry will hit the showrooms across Australia with a new look and some new technology under the hood. It’s the end of an era, as Toyota’s Australian Camry production ends, the new model will be fully imported, but Toyota are...
  • Toyota Landcruiser 200 GXL Review: the most capable off-road vehicle for Australian conditions

    The Toyota Landcruiser has long been the go to vehicle for those looking to tow, go off-road or simply have a chunk of metal bigger than anyone else in the burbs. Its latest update brings a new, almost American front end, but in general more of the same. Chris...
  • Living with the Toyota Corolla Hybrid – Long term drive review

    I’ll be completely honest, I couldn’t own a Prius.  Not because I want to burn fuel and am anti-green, I just don’t like the look of it – never have.  I feel like it’s designed to stand out, and make a statement – that it does well.  So if...
  • Seven-seat off-road wagon: Toyota Fortuner GXL review

    There’s an ample amount of seven-seat off-road wagons on the market that trace their ancestry back to ute-style workhorse vehicles. The Ford Everest, Mitsubishi Sport Pajero and Holden Trailblazer come to mind. But how does replacing the rear tray with a roof and seats work out for Toyota? The...
  • EFTM Quick Fix: Toyota Hilux SR5

    It was the best-selling model in 2016 and for years has helped Toyota stay at the top of the charts. But when compared to the current crop of today’s fashionable, flashy alternatives it doesn’t rate a mention, at least in the critic’s eyes. Chris Bowen spent a week in...
  • Toyota Introduces the Tonka HiLux: Unbreakable concept

    As hinted by Toyota recently their Tonka Truck concept vehicle has now been revealed to the public and oh boy, they’ve done a cracker job on this one. Basically a full size toy for a grown man, the idea here was to take the iconic Tonka Truck brand and...
  • EFTM Quick Fix: Toyota Landcruiser 79 Series GXL

    It’s rough as guts, as familiar as Uluru and there’s a fair chance it could probably scale the great rock in one giant leap. I’m talking about the 2017 Toyota 70 Series workhorse, while updated you’d hardly call it a makeover. That is no bad thing, ask any potential...
  • Toyota Australia building life-sized Tonka Truck: HiLux Tonka

    Toyota has good reason to celebrate.  In 2016 the Toyota HiLux became the first ute to be the top selling vehicle in Australia.  That’s a big deal, indicates a huge shift in buying overall, as well as a shift away from our traditional “utes”. I’m still not totally comfortable...
  • Driverless cars are decades away: Toyota the Voice of Reason on Autonomous Cars

    Another car news conference and another concept car, today it was Toyota’s turn with its Concept-i. I’ll touch on that in just a moment. BUT the big news is the concession that fully autonomous, driverless cars are not even close but in fact decades away!...
  • Toyota Camry Atara SL: Bloody impressive as a daily driver

    It’s almost a year since Chris drove the Camry Atara SX – something a bit sporty, and there’s no doubt that surprised him.  So this week when I jumped into the Camry Atara SL I wasn’t expecting much.  What I got surprised this Commodore owner into thinking a Camry...
  • “Unique Design” is an understatement : Driving the Toyota Prius i-Tech – Our Review

    The Toyota Prius has long been the butt of jokes for anyone with even the slightest hint of motoring enthusiasm. There are plenty of very unkind insults you can throw in any hybrid’s direction, but the fact remains they have a cult following and have done since arriving on...
  • Toyota 86 recall: 15,000 Aussie 86s heading back to dealers

    Just days ago it was revealed cars topped the list of recalls in the 2015-16 financial year – 182 out of 670 total recalls, and today that list continues into the new financial year with Toyota announcing a recall of the popular 86 sports car. Additionally over 3,000 Subaru...
