Geneva Motor Show Will See Two New Toyota Concepts

Convertible FR-S to be on display

Reports indicate the Toyota is set to show off a pair of new concept vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show. One of the concepts is very likely to go into production and is a convertible version of the FT-86 sold in the United States as the Subaru BR-Z or the Scion FR-S.

The coupe version of the vehicle drawn a lot of comparisons to the Mazda Miata since it debuted. Ahose comparisons are certain to grow now that the convertible version is being shown off. Thker B6e second concept vehicle to be shown in Geneva is called the Toyota i-road.

This vehicle is supposed to be a compact emissions free personal mobility concept. The idea is to provide quick and efficient urban transportation for two people. The car reminds me of a cross between a motorcycle and a micro car.

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Toyota, Quick Spins Toyota offers many flavors of its refreshed 2015 Camry, but those who choose to lower their operating cost-per-mile, squeeze 500-plus miles out of each tank of fuel or run a very efficient and reliable sedan in their taxi fleets will only be interested in one: the Camry Hybrid. The exterior of the 2015 Camry Hybrid is nearly indistinguishable from its gasoline-only co ...

Toyota Developing Radical 3-D Head-Up Display for Production

Sep 22 2014 12:52pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Toyota spends $1 million per hour on R&D, and you should be thrilled to hear that not all of it is spent on boring stuff such as squeezing another mile per gallon out of tomorrow’s Prius. One such less-boring innovation is a 3-D head-up display (HUD) being developed—and slated for production—by engineers in Silicon Valley collaborating in concert with Toyota designers based in San Francisco. To be clear, this isn’t being created so you can view Godzilla smashing your win ...

2015 Toyota Camry XSE Test Drive

Sep 22 2014 11:37am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

When the 2015 Toyota Camry hit dealerships across the country a few weeks ago, it did so with a message to potential buyers: “I’m not the old Camry.” One look at the new model makes that very clear. Despite carrying over the same engines and powertrains from the version that debuted back in 2011, the 2015 Camry wears an aggressive, restyled front grille and new sheetmetal on top of an upgraded chassis. In other words, the 2015 Camry is the same mountain, but with a whole lot o ...

Whether it be the Chevrolet Corvette, the Ford Mustang, or yes, even the ubiquitous Toyota Camry, 10.2 million of which have been sold since 1983, every car has its year. For the Camry, that year was 1992. With son-of-Lexus styling, a clear sense of purpose and a parent company that had hit its stride as the purveyor of faultlessly reliable family transportation d ...
