Not unattractive, but curiously "thick" looking. I'm also confused about the angular wheelwells.

Was too young at the time to drive the late 1980/early 1990 Honda/Acuras, but, even a a teen passenger, I could tell how advanced the design and quality was. I think there have been several...

I'm not a Honda/Acura fanboy, but I really do hope this is something interesting. I recall when Honda/Acura made low-key but elegant, thoughtful, and relatively innovative cars. The decline of...

Ooh, did you hear a definite starting point? I had read "around $30K," which I guess makes sense for a relatively stripped version, although even the base version seems pretty decently equipped. ...

Not sure what that has to do w/ the conversation? The Passport and RDX are clearly marketed to different segments of the population, as noted by both their interior and exterior design.

Because a large, sexy, RWD sedan w/ a fairly luxurious interior isn't the most natural fit in the Toyota stable since the advent of Lexus, IMHO. And I assume that selling the car through their Lexus...

Toyota is apparently predicting a modest (for Toyota) 50,000 sales/yr. A relative drop in the bucket vs. the RAV4.

I do agree that it might hurt Lexus sales. Curious that this and the next...

I hadn't looked very closely at the pics.... Does the dash just consist of touch-sensitive panels??? Ew. Well, at least the "buttons" are relatively big and placed well.

How curious. The Jag targeted the quality of a Lexus, that certainly would've made sense. But, with only a few exceptions, the styling of Lexuses has never been any particularly noteworthy (IMHO). ...

I think I might be more excited about the mystery vehicle than by the Sienna. ;)

Have there been rumors of a hybrid Tundra floating around?

But fastbacks are not a recent trend in Europe, right? My memory is that fastbacks outside of the US in the non-luxury class have been popular for quite some time.
