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

it won't be like magic seats of the HRV but the seats proportions looks similar. looks pretty sharp. just need more space than cx3

Actually looks like a cross between a HRV and CX3

Seeing that vantage point with the raked hatch, knowing there is a battery for the Hybrid drivetrain, have to wonder if there is any usable storage behind the rear seats.

suit yourself man. roomier or not, there's just too much going on with this car. a mouse-like face; too many chiseled panels; not liking the body color sandwiched by the black plastic panels and roofline; a sporty coupe pretender (with that 'hidden' door handle) that has cvt. and look at those side windows composed of two pieces each. it lacks flow. it's like all the scion designers did this desperately to give a last hurrah. i think it's the successor to that nissan car that sounds like joke and puke. the only thing i can think of worth commending is the brand's reputation for durability. of course the fuel economy is great but i can't really imagine myself now driving a car that will be closely associated to the prius. i'd rather see the nissan gripz in production than this. or take the subaru crosstrek and call it a day. i wish you the best in your car shopping.

Way too many unnecessary lines and edges and other crap, hybrid no thanks, and why no interior photos? And it looks weird from the side, the CX-3 looks gorgeous from the side thanks to the elongated hood.. Toyota is trying to do too much with the design, doesn't work for me.

My thought exactly, DJ9999! Overall, it's a nicely proportioned mini-ute that's overdone with pointless details. I'm not surprised as Toyota tends to mistake "youthful" for "schizophrenic" in it's designs. I can see it doing well mostly because it's a Toyota (I bet the Aztec would have been a hit if it had the Toyota logo on the nose) but it wouldn't have swayed me from my decision to go with the CX-3.

Hopefully it will have higher ground clearance than a RAV4.
