Toyota Corolla GTI Concept Rumored For Tokyo Debut

  Toyota Corolla GTI Concept Rumored For Tokyo Debut It would join the concept for the new Supra and possibly the an updated version of the S-FR roadster.Not only would the Corolla GTI pack a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with around 250 horsepower (186 kilowatts), but this would also be our first good glimpse of the next-generation model’s design, according to this rumor. Toyota won’t say much about the new vehicle yet, but the company will move the Corolla to the TNGA platform like that latest Camry, C-HR, and Prius. North American production will come from the new $1.6 billion joint factory with Mazda in the United States.

Toyota Crown Concept© Motor1.com Toyota Crown Concept The current, 14th (!) generation Toyota Crown was launched back in December 2012 and was slightly refreshed in 2015. The model is now almost five years old and is in a desperate need of a successor. During the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, the Japanese manufacturer will present a near production prototype of the new Crown, which could be revealed sometime next year.

Definitely the most important thing about the new Crown is the switch to Toyota’s new TNGA platform, which should “offer customers the enjoyment of driving cars while pursuing a future mobility society.” That’s a pretty vague statement, but we expect the re-engineered model to be lighter, featuring better handling and improved driving stability, all tested at the German Nurburgring track. The automaker promises the driver will only have to “enjoy the driving experience.”

Preliminary details suggest the new Crown will be slightly longer than the model that’s still on sale - 193 inches (4,190 millimeters) versus 192 in (4,885 mm), with a bit longer wheelbase. This should result in more space for the passengers, as well as additional boot volume.

As far as the design is concerned, the Crown study, previewing the 15th generation of the sedan, comes with sharp styling, dominated by massive radiator grille at the front, flanked by sweptback headlights. The side profile is muscular with wide wheel arches and long rear overhang.

More information about the study and, hopefully, about the production model will be released during the Tokyo Motor Show later this month, so stay tuned.

Ok, the name isn't that great, but this six-seater is quite interesting.While to some people this looks more like an elongated minivan from the future, Toyota says it's actually an attempt to create a new type of a premium sedan. Like the Mirai, the concept has a fuel cell setup and has enough juice for a maximum range of around 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) based on Japan’s JC08 test cycle. Once you’re out of fuel, a full refill is going to take roughly three minutes.
