A short video from the show.....
It's interesting you should say that. I am OK with the current headlights because it gives it a rugged look, but I have been playing with the idea in my head of how it would be with flush lights. I think that is a strong possibility.I'd like it more if the headlights were more flush against the front bumper, just so it doesn't stick out as much. Looks good in rendering, but after watching that video they don't look that great in real life.
Not only dirt, but airflow around the vehicle will be helped with covers. Maybe they will keep the round lights as is and just add clear covers front and rear?Flush lights seems more practical to me, just the sheer amount of dirt that will get stuck in there sounds daunting. I actually like what we say on the FT-4X more, but the rest of the body is perfect especially the seats. Did you see how they fold it back up in two parts? So that's how Toyota made the floor completely flat, not something I've ever seen before.
Didn't know that RAV4 isn't available for Japan anymore. Anyways, as for me, this car looks a great production model that can easily fit in their lineup especially for NA market. I personally impressed by its incredible interior capacity and find it really convenient for my job.The Tokyo Motor Show is now over. I wonder how soon we will hear of the public response to it being how important that is to the go ahead for production?
It does seem likely it will be approved for Japan, being that the RAV4 is no longer available n Japan. That would leave open the question of when it will actually come here to the US.
Too bad about the demise of Scion. This would be a likely candidate for their lineup. I also miss the no haggle pricing and excellent included content that I had with my 2004 xB.
Agree! I just hope,hope ,hope it is at the LA Auto Show!Great video. With only one rear seat being folded its cargo space is incredible. Tired to watch all these videos, I want to try it already!!!
I think the flatness is due in part by the humongous 108" wheelbase for a car this size. It allows for lots of room for normal height seatbacks to fold flat.Didn't notice how the rear seat headrest was removable and it seems to have its own side pocket for storage. No wonder the seats can fold down completely flat, because they don't have that usual bump blocking the seat.
