In-Depth Review Finds Very Few Faults With 2018 Toyota Prius 18

If you’re in the market a practical and fuel efficient hatchback, the only thing that might keep you from considering buying a Prius straight up could be its looks.

Let’s face it, it does look futuristic, but it’s not the prettiest thing on the road. However, if you move past this aspect (or better yet you like the way it looks, since this is highly subjective), you’ll likely end up enjoying your purchase.

The 2018 Prius is a very practical car, with plenty of room for luggage, comfortable seats, impressive safety tech, lots of storage spaces and a well laid out cabin with strong visibility ahead and around the pillars.

On the road, the Prius is great around town, with excellent maneuverability. However, there were some downsides such as the overly sensitive brakes, road noise and poor rearwards visibility. It’s also not very quick, so if you’re looking for effortless motorway overtaking capability, you’d better look somewhere else.

On the plus side, Toyota made the 2018 Prius handle surprisingly well, with decent grip and steering feel. On top of that, there’s a ‘Power’ mode that improves performance, although it’s not going to help you win any drag races. But, at the end of the day, it’s a Prius, so this doesn’t rank very highly on its potential customers’ list anyway, does it?

This Is The Cheapest MKIV Toyota Supra In The U.S. 16

Posted by Brad Anderson in TOYOTA, Toyota Supra, Toyota Videos, video on 11 16th, 2017


What you’re looking at is one of the cheapest fourth-generation Toyota Supras in the United States and no, it isn’t as fast as you may expect.

YouTuber Tavarish purchased the white and red Japanese sports car earlier this month for a cool $23,000. Incredibly, that price was for an example fitted with the naturally-aspirated 2JZ engine, not the desirable twin-turbo 2JZ that has gone down in automotive folklore.

In the last decade, fourth-generation Supra prices have climbed drastically, even for entry-level variants. Consequently, the Supra is no longer a performance car bargain but that doesn’t mean it’s any less impressive than it was when new.

Beyond its rather questionable bodywork, Tavarish’s Supra did come with some desirable modifications, namely a new rear spoiler and the bigger brake kit from the twin-turbo Supra.

Would we pay $23,000 for a Supra like this? Probably not, but it’s clear many enthusiasts would.

Driving The Honda NSX, Toyota Supra And Mazda RX-7 Back-To-Back 11

Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, many of Japan’s leading automakers built world-beating sports cars that were exceptionally fast, bewilderingly agile and in many ways, ahead of their European and American rivals.

Of all the iconic Japanese sports cars of the time, the first-generation Honda NSX, FD Mazda RX-7 and A80 Toyota Supra are among the most beloved. One fortunate YouTuber had the chance to jump behind the wheel of all three.

Despite all coming from Japan at roughly the same time, the Supra, NSX and RX-7 are all quite different from each other. Whereas the Supra is a straight-line warrior, the RX-7 is a more nimble and agile sports car powered by a high-revving rotary engine. By comparison, the NSX is the most exotic of the three, the only one that’s naturally-aspirated and the only one with its engine mounted behind passenger compartment.

If money wasn’t an issue and you could only buy one of the three, which would you choose?

New Toyota Supra Sounds Underwhelming In Latest Tests 8

If you’re a Toyota Supra enthusiast, you may want to block your ears for the video below. It is not encouraging.

Late last week, a prototype for the next-generation Supra was filmed accelerating near the streets of the Nurburgring sounding bland and no more exciting than a Toyota Camry or 86.

Later filmed at the German circuit itself, this prototype was even drowned out by the turbo four-cylinder of the Porsche 718 Cayman it was following. If you were hoping the new Supra would come with an engine as exciting as the famed 2JZ, you’ll be sorely disappointed.

According to our sources, not all hope is lost. While a four-cylinder engine with approximately 248 hp will be the most affordable powertrain option for the sports car, a 335 hp six-cylinder should also be made available to customers in the United States. If Toyota takes its duties seriously in developing a replacement to the fourth-gen Supra, it better ensure the inline-six version sounds much better than this prototype.

It remains to be seen when the new Supra will launch but a debut in the first half of 2018 is probable.

All-Electric Toyota AE86 Drift Car Is Actually Pretty Cool 7

Many believe that electric propulsion will spell the end of exhilarating performance cars. Let this all-electric Toyota AE86 drift car teach you otherwise.

Built by U.S. engineer Omead Moinee, this AE86-generation Toyota Corolla features a 275-volt battery pack that delivers 330 lb-ft of torque at 200 rpm until roughly 4,000 rpm.

The car then features rear-wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission, making it ideal for donuts and drifts.

The Hoonigans channel on YouTube recently featured the car and while it mightn’t get your heart pumping like Ken Block’s Ford Escort drift car, it is still pretty cool.
