Put simply, there is no better choice of practical car than a Toyota. The company sells more units in Australia than any other producer, outselling their nearest competitor by nearly two to one. And in 2015, the Toyota Corolla was named the number one seller in the country (with the HiLux coming in third).
The Japanese motoring giant was recently named the third most reliable by Choice and second most reliable by CNN Money. And all current Toyota models carry five star safety ratings (except the Hiace LWB van). So if you want a new or second hand car that ticks every box, choose a Toyota.
