2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road Review: Great for Playing in the Mud!

2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road In Our Opinion: The 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road is the newest member of the automaker's TRD family. While the off-road capability is a given, we were taken back by how comfortable this RAV4 is on dry pavement. It was a pleasant surprise to discover this off-road rig was still pretty good in the city. Although we are not sold on the exterior styling, the interior is sharp and that makes up for it.

2018 Toyota Tundra Limited CrewMax Review

2019 Toyota RAV4 First Look: New Look for the SUV Sales King

The Toyota RAV4 is what the industry calls a category killer. Which means Toyota sells a ton of them, and the competition (even if it feels it has a better-looking and performing vehicle) can’t seem to topple the king. The outgoing fourth-generation RAV4 lacked the pizzazz of several other small crossovers. Even though there were 11 trim levels to choose from, they all looked fairly alike. Despite this anonymity, last year the old RAV4 was the best-selling passenger vehicle (i.e. not counting pi...

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Set for NY Debut

What we saw and greatly admired at the Geneva Motor Show as the new Auris will hit America as the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. To be officially introduced to the U.S. public at the New York Motor Show next week, the new Corolla is refreshingly different than anything else you have seen in this class. And that is both in terms of looks and technology. With its sharp new angels and decidedly Japanese-flavored highlights, the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback is anything but boring to look at. Th...

Toyota Automatic Braking As Standard Equipment In The Near Future

Toyota and Lexus have an ambitious plan: by the end of 2017, they intend to introduce the automated braking system as standard feature for almost all the models in range.

2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited Review

( = || []).push({}); While commuting in heavy traffic over the weekend, we found out why consumers will be interested in the new Avalon Hybrid.
