Toyotaís latest concept car puts the focus on fun. Thatís because itís a toyÖ literally.
Called the Camatte57s concept, Toyota will debut the interesting new machine at the 2013 Tokyo Toy Show from June 13 to June 16. And despite technically being a toy, itís life-sized at 118-inches longer, seats three adults and it does actually drive.
The sporty, open-top concept is aimed at bringing parents and children closer together by providing an opportunity for them both to experience the fun of driving, car customization and car enthusiasm together. Major features of the Camatte57s include detachable body parts, roadster styling with a compact and intimate interior, plus itís a vehicle that even children can drive.
Powered by an electric motor it can seat three in a triangular configuration.
Looking to shed its dull image Toyota has rolled out a series of increasingly progressive designs for its new models, not least of which is the all-new 2014 Corolla.
Taking design cues from the larger Avalon, the new Corolla is a dramatic design shift away from the conservatively styled current generation car.
More than just a new look, however, the 2013 Corolla has grown in size and boasts a more spacious interior. It also gains a new engine and a new transmission. For more on those details and others, watch out first look video below.
For the past few decades, the Corolla has been as exciting as watching grass grow in real time. But this hasn’t hampered sales one bit. Most new car buyers don’t care about exciting style or an engaging drive. They just want an efficient vehicle that is as reliable as beer kegs being found at a frat party.
But for 2014 Toyota is throwing caution to the wind and has brought out a more exciting Corolla; sort of. 2014-Toyota-Corolla-04 All-new from the ground up, Toyota has infused the new Corolla with a sense of style heavily lacking in the model line since, well, forever.
The 11th generation of Corolla will feature an “Iconic Dynamism” theme first shown off on the Corolla Furia Concept at the North American International Auto Show. This is part of Toyota’s design-focused product strategy that includes the recently launched 2013 RAV4 and 2013 Avalon. Why the renewed focus on design? Well, consumers wanted more design presence in the Corolla; even they found it to be a bit too boring looking.
BIGGER THAN BEFORE
The first photos of the 2014 Toyota Corolla have leaked ahead of its official debut with some details also slipping out on the Japanese automaker's compact sedan.
Sporting a more aggressive design that has never been seen on any past Corolla models, the 2014 Corolla will have a 3.93-inch longer wheelbase and a 3.9-inch longer body than its predecessor. The interior looks to be more high-end than economy, heavily influenced by the larger Avalon.
More details on the 2014 Toyota Corolla will be coming soon when the vehicle is officially unveiled, so stay tuned.
