Its...its interesting. Still not into hybrids and its cool it'll offer a 1.2L turbo. I'm a big fan of turbo charged tiny engines that has the potential to push a bit of power with some tuning. The looks look really striking and in my opinion too striking for a lot of people, especially the rear. I'm curious as to how really practical it is with realistic "shove stuff in it" tests.

we'll see. i held off on buying cx-3 b/c the space was just not usable having to haul a kid around. HRV on the other hand was meh. doesn't really make me want to trade in my current car for.

The rear looks like a Civic and the name sounds like it came from Honda. We sure this is a Toyota?!?

It's a little too flamboyant for me by all in all, not bad.

the fact that it'll be on a hybrid platform is also pretty cool. i just hope storage #s comes out decent. as soon as i saw the back of cx3, i knew it wasn't for me. i almost didn't drive it fearing i'd like it too much.

I think its too much batmobile car. If cx3 is limited with space, then this batmobile will be useless

Looking at the proportions of wheel base and the windows it will be limited with space especially the rear seats

1.5 FWD with mods to follow...

Over the top! Toyota is trying just a little too hard to look cool IMHO.
