2019 Toyota Avalon vs. full-size sedans: How they compare on paper

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 11:50:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,

(image) Full-size sedans aren't exactly in great demand at the moment, and at least one of the vehicles in this comparison has been rumored to be on the endangered species list. Yet, we've just had our first drive in the 2019 Toyota Avalon, and if anything has a chance of rejuvenating the segment a bit, it's an all-new version of what has long been the segment's benchmark.

2019 Toyota Avalon First Drive Review: A new hope

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 07:01:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) If the 2019 Toyota Avalon isn't fit enough to survive, then the entire full-size sedan species is doomed to extinction. It's really simple as that, because as the new-and-improved replacement for a car that was already well-entrenched as the segment benchmark, it stands the best chance of coaxing customers away from an onslaught of SUVs and similarly priced smaller sedans with fancier badges. Perhaps it could even snag a few people not yet old enough to collect Social Security.

2020 Toyota Corolla sedan spied with less camo

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 13:54:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) We've already seen the Toyota Corolla hatchback and you'll be able to read about what it's like to drive April 30, but we still have yet to hear much about the sedan. That's a bit surprising, since the Corolla is Toyota's compact bread and butter, making up nearly 94 percent of the Corolla's almost 330,000 sales in 2017. We may not have much longer to wait, though, since the Corolla prototype in the spy shots above look pretty close to production. Notably, the heavy black plastic of the last pro

Economy-car buyers increasingly get the best deal on technology

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 09:20:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,,

(image) One of the great things about technology is – with the exception of Apple products – consumers get more for their money every year. For example, the first 1GB USB drive I bought in 2005 cost me $30. Today you can get 10 for that price, delivered to your door thanks to Amazon. The same goes for car tech.

Custom Toyota FJ Cruiser convertible could be yours

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 10:45:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) Toyota's FJ Cruiser SUV ticked off most of the boxes the original FJ40 Land Cruiser did. It had two-door styling (thanks to hidden half-doors) and plenty of off-road capability from a traditional four-wheel-drive system and good ground clearance. But unlike the FJ40, the Cruiser never had a convertible option. At least one person decided that was necessary and had one converted to a convertible sometime in its life, and now it could be yours.

Toyota Supra's instrument cluster partially revealed in spy shots

Filed under: ,,,

(image) Although we've seen most of the production Toyota Supra, albeit in race car form, we still haven't seen the final interior. And most of the time, the prototype test drivers keep the interior well-covered. This new batch of spy shots help give us a more complete picture of the interior, giving us a look at the instrument panel.

2018 Hyundai Kona vs other small crossovers: How they compare on paper

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 10:00:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,

(image) The 2018 Hyundai Kona is the hottest new thing in the hottest new segment: subcompact crossovers. Or B-segment SUVs. Or whatever you might want to call this hodge-podge collection of vehicles of vaguely similar specs. Each is pretty much just a raised hatchback in some form (or literally in the case of one entry), skewing the increasingly vague line between car and SUV. If there was ever a segment that deserved the term "crossover" for more reasons than just its car-based unibody architecture, t

2018 Toyota Corolla Buyer's Guide: What you need to know about this compact sedan

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 15:30:00 EDT

Filed under: ,

(image) When it comes to long-running nameplates, the Toyota Corolla has few peers. It was first introduced as part of a wave of imported Japanese economy cars in the U.S. in 1968. While peers like the Datsun 411 and Honda N600 didn't last as long, contemporary successors like the Nissan Sentra and Honda Civic are serious competition for the venerable Corolla.

(image) If these rumors are true, a small but dedicated core of fans could be in for a treat. According to Japan Times — and citing unspecified "sources" — Toyota and Subaru are developing a more next-generation 86 and BRZ, with a possible launch around 2021. The new car(s) will have more power, improved handling and newer safety features.

Sunday Drive: Big debuts from the Big Apple dominated the headlines

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,

(image) New York Auto Show week has come and gone, and, not surprisingly, the week's biggest bits of news came from the halls of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC. Our favorite debut from New York was the Lincoln Aviator, a sharp-dresses crossover that looks lovely inside and out, and sits on underpinnings at least partly derived from the Ford Mustang.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. midsize crossovers and SUVs: How they compare on paper

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 14:50:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,

(image) In a world full of SUVs and crossovers all competing for similar buyers in similar segments, there are still some models that find their own little niches that lack such fevered fighting. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of those vehicles. It's an oddball in the sense that it's a midsize crossover SUV with a unibody chassis and independent suspension, but it still uses rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems and has some off-road capability. It's also a midsize crossover, but only offers two

Would you pay $17 a month to give your older Ford connectivity?

2019 Nissan Altima vs Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry: How they compare

(image) Midsize family sedans may be losing sales to small SUVs, but hundreds of thousands of the things still left dealerships last year. The 2019 Nissan Altima introduced here at the New York Auto Show replaces one of the segment's best sellers, joining a pair of other best-sellers, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, which were both redesigned last year.

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback: Plastic hatch and other fun facts

Wed, 28 Mar 2018 13:40:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) Historically, the Toyota Corolla hasn't been associated with words like "interesting," "exciting" or anything resembling enthusiasm, with the obvious exception of the earlier rear-drive models. But the 2019 Corolla Hatchback seems different. It looks aggressive. It's going to be available with a manual. And since Toyota says that being fun-to-drive is the top reason for buying a small hatchback, here's hoping it will indeed be fun. But besides these tidbits, there are other interesting facets to

2019 Toyota RAV4 actually looks pretty cool

Wed, 28 Mar 2018 00:01:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) Quick, what was Toyota's best-selling vehicle in America last year? If you said Camry or Corolla, you were close, but in fact it was the RAV4. It sold over 400,000 units last year, topping the next best-selling Camry by about 20,000 cars. And this was despite the fact that the current RAV4 is roughly 5 years old, and the Camry was completely redesigned, and improved, last year. That makes the RAV4 monumentally important to the Japanese carmaker. Thankfully, though, instead of playing it safe and
