Urban Cruiser, bold new concept for a mini SUV

The Urban Cruiser is a design exercise by ED2, Toyota’s European design studio, for a futuristic mini SUV.

This concept car draws heavily on Toyota’s heritage in Sports Utility Vehicles but also adds its own dynamic flair and rugged originality. The Urban Cruiser also features a fresh interior style inspired by trendy furniture.

Yaris T Sport

Just a few weeks after the European launch of the new Toyota Yaris range, Toyota will unveil a high performance concept of its best selling model at the Geneva motor show.

The T Sport is powered by a 1.8-litre engine, the biggest ever to be installed on this model. New bumpers, radiator grille, alloy wheels and modified suspension convey a more aggressive look, adding to the essence of this sports concept.

Rethinking the automobile: Fine-T and i-swing

Two advanced concepts offer glimpses of the future and reveal how Toyota can minimise environmental impact while providing transport solutions.

The Fine-T is the next step in fuel-cell hybrid vehicles and offers the cabin space of an Avensis within the approximate exterior dimensions of a Yaris. An independent four-wheel large-angle steering system confers an extremely tight turning radius, impossible to achieve with any conventional car.

The i-swing is a new evolution in personal mobility, offering a more direct form of human-machine interaction by adopting the latest technologies in IT robotics.
