  • 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback

    Toyota has a new Corolla on its hands, one that doesn't look like something your grandma would drive—and the car could be destined to receive some performance upgrades to back its racy looks. Australia's Car Sales reported Thursday that a Corolla GR hot hatch is being developed to challenge models from Hyundai's new N performance division, like the Veloster N, as well as established players, namely Volkswagen's Golf GTI. GR is Toyota's new performance sub-brand. Launched in Japan last year, GR, which stands for Gazoo Racing, Toyota's official motorsport division, offers various stages...

  • 1998 and 2015 Toyota Corolla crash test

    Vehicle safety is arguably one of the lesser points looked at when shopping for a car. Consumers simply expect vehicles to be safe and protect occupants at all costs. No one likes to think about a car wreck, after all. The Australian New Car Assessment Program wants to remind drivers how far the industry has come, however. The ANCAP set up a crash test with one standard issue 1998 Toyota Corolla and a 2015 Toyota Corolla. Both were and are popular cars on New Zealand and Australian roads. But, ANCAP says drivers are twice as likely to die in a car crash if the vehicle was made before the year...

    2011 Toyota Corolla Fans Love Virtual Pop Star Hatsune Miku

    If you've never heard of pop star Hatsune Miku, don't worry. Most of her work is in Japanese. And she's only four years old. And of course, she's not real. Miku is a virtual celebrity, created in 2007 as part of a music software package called Vocaloid. (Basically, she's apotheosis of AutoTune: a...

I also noted in my post the Ford development effort involving a new crash...

  • Leaked Toyota 86 Logo

    If you've been following the hubbub and ballyhoo around the development of Toyota's next rear-drive coupe, code-named the FT-86 and rumored to be called the FR-S in production, you're aware of its on-again, off-again, it's coming, but we don't know exactly when or what, path. The latest news spins things around once again, with a logo using the 86 name and a stylized boxer engine theme. The new logo was uncovered by Car and Driver, and shows a pair of horizontally opposed pistons flanking a circular "86" emblem. The 86, for those not in the know, refers to the FT-86/FR-S's spiritual...

    Driver's Ed: Is It Enough?

    Sixteen, what a great age. An age where you perceive everyone older than you to be completely oblivious to life. An age where anything is possible. An age where you can finally get your driver's license. That meant, however, that for those six months before you turned 16 you had to log fifty hours...

  • Adam Carolla in Toyota GP gear

      Scandal rocked CelebsAndCars today -- and by "scandal", we mean a total non-scandal that we completely turned into a fake scandal while we were goofing off in the break room, hopped up on double lattes and day-old cinnamon scones. This is how we amuse ourselves on slow news days. So, what's the scandal (aka "scandal")? Adam Carolla is competing in the Pro/Celebrity Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 17, and rumor has it that Carolla was named for Toyota's popular sedan, the Toyota Corolla! Why does this matter? Because the Pro/Celebrity Grand Prix is sponsored by Toyota, which could give...
