2016 Toyota HiLux SR5 Double Cab review

We know the 2016 Toyota HiLux SR5 isn’t the best dual cab in the class, because we’ve tested it against the competition not long after its initial release. We know the styling of the all-new model polarises people – even strident Toyota fans most of whom reckon the front end especially has been beaten with the ugly…

2016 Toyota Hilux WorkMate 4×4 review

Over the past few years, we have seen the humble work ute transform into a high-tech, high-priced leisure machine. But not everyone needs all the bells and whistles, and in the case of the 2016 Toyota HiLux Workmate, stripping away all the options, accessories and luxury appointments leaves you with what is arguably a better example…

Playtime in the Toyota HiLux Tonka concept and 2017 Toyota HiLux TRD

You’re never too old to play with toys, we say – and Toyota has given us all a nice reminder with the release of the full-size HiLux Tonka concept.

It’s a…

2017 Toyota HiLux TRD review

Today we’re going to take a look at something truly exciting that’s been developed by Toyota’s go-fast team, TRD. It’s the 2017 Toyota HiLux TRD. Wait, what? Toyota Racing Development hasn’t really worked this new model over to within an inch of its life, and it really hasn’t done anything to make it a much sportier than the…

2017 Mazda 2 Neo sedan review

Light car sales may be in decline these days, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t good vehicles. The 2017 Mazda 2 is a prime example, combining stylish looks with upmarket technology and affordable pricing. It’s these traits that help Mazda shift around 1000 units a month, only losing out to the Hyundai Accent and Toyota Yaris in terms of sales –…
