The cover of Believe represents a vehicle iconic in New Zealand: the Corolla. In fact, nothing’s changed except everything in the 12th generation Corolla. The advertisement within shows some of the different generations throughout its 50-year history. We believe that good things stand the test of time. There’s plenty more inside about the all-new 2019 Corolla.

Inside the pages of Believe we have a mixed bag, which we’re sure will appeal to a range of readers. There are tips on how to talk to your kids about body image – a topic that is important to myth-bust the barrage of messages we are faced with about how good we need to look to be loved and accepted. Parenting Place writer Jo Batts provides some great tips on nurturing healthy self-esteem in your kids and about loving the bodies they’re in.

‘Start Your Impossible’ is the campaign that underlies the Olympic and Paralympic partnership that Toyota has formed leading up to and beyond the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. As the Worldwide Mobility Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we share the vision to inspire people to push onward – past their finish lines, towards their impossible goals. See the story entitled 'Power to the People'.

17-year-old Olivia McTaggart was a competitive gymnast for 10 years before changing to pole vaulting. She was forced to rethink gymnastics following a back injury in 2014. She says she had to think of something else to do that would still deliver thrills and excitement. Her teammate had been pole vaulting, and while she admits the sport was probably not the best for her back, she gave it a go and adapted. The rest is history. Now she’s Toyota’s youngest ambassador. Her catch phrase is ‘I was told I couldn’t, so I did’.

If you have an appetite for motorsport, there’s plenty inside as the season kicks off. As we go to print the sixth Toyota 86 Championship is expected to start with a full field of 17 drivers taking the track at the Supercars Championship event at Pukekohe Park (early November).

There should be plenty of action in this series. The Castrol Toyota Racing Series, which starts its 15th season at Highlands Motorsport Park, Cromwell in the weekend of January 12 and 13, also promises to be another exciting racing season.

As we fast approach the festive season, we wish you and your families safe and happy motoring.
