Toyota Auris Touring Sports estate (2013 – ) expert review

The Auris estate is a handsome, comfortable and practical load-lugger which is let down by a poorly resolved drivetrain and disappointing interior design and finish.

Toyota RAV4 (2013 – ) expert review

20 years ago, the original RAV4 was a ground-breaking and revolutionary car, but that’s not true of the 2013 version. It’s one of the most spacious and practical SUVs, but in many other ways, its rivals have caught up with it – and in some cases, overtaken it

Toyota Auris hatchback (2012 – ) expert review

The Toyota Auris is one of the most affordable family hatchback’s to run, but that comes at the price of driver enjoyment.

Toyota Prius Plug-in (2012 – ) expert review

The Toyota Prius Plug-in has a 15-mile electric range, boosting its economy to 134mpg, without taking away from its boot space or five seats.

Toyota Prius+ MPV (2012 – ) expert review

The first extension of the Prius hybrid model range, the Prius+ is currently unique in being the only seven-seater with sub 100g/km CO2 emissions. It carries over the strengths of the hatchback, namely a serene drive and impressive standard equipment, but lacks the ultimate practicality of the best MPVs.

Toyota GT86 coupe (2012 – ) expert review

The Toyota GT86 marks a return to sports models for the manufacturer best known for its economical family cars. Designed to be as low as possible, it’s a hoot to drive, despite being not that quick in a straight line.

Toyota Yaris hatchback (2011 – ) expert review

The Toyota Yaris should be completely reliable, plus it’s well equipped and easy to drive. However, many other superminis perform other roles much better than the Yaris, so we’d point you towards one of them instead.

Toyota Verso-S MPV (2011 – ) expert review

The Toyota Verso-S is a spacious city car designed to compete with the Honda Jazz, Vauxhall Meriva and Nissan Note. It's economical and well equipped.

Toyota Land Cruiser 4×4 (2009 – ) expert review

The Toyota Land Cruiser has been a byword for supreme off-road ability for more than 50 years, and recent versions have blended this go-anywhere attitude with a bit of luxury.

Date added: Monday 06 December 2010.


Toyota Auris hatchback (2007 – 2012) expert review

The Toyota Auris is the automotive equivalent of a white good. It’ll be reliable, safe and relatively cheap to run, but it won’t stir any emotions or get the pulse racing.

Date added: Saturday 27 November 2010.

Geneva 2014: Toyota Aygo

Toyota has again joined forces with Peugeot and Citroen, but its 2014 Toyota Aygo looks very different to its French counterparts, with a much edgier design.
