Is this still based of a RWD platform? Because proportions looks certainly different to the rest of T-NGA based sedans like teh Camry or Lexus ES.

Apart form the grille, a decent (but not outstanding) looking vehicle, with a nice interior that gets ruined b

Okay, to answer my own question:






Definitely RWD, but they still call it TNGA based; Interesting, so in Toyota's wording still the same platform, despite using a longitudinal engine driving the rear wheels (AWD optional), and a different position of the front axle as result (though my feeling says that's more marketing BS to make TNGA sound like the most flexible platform out there); Question remians why teh Lexus ES(resp. GS replacement) couldn't stay on this RWD version of TNGA, after all it can do RWD, AWD and (naturally) hybris as well----

There are several TNGAs because TNGA does NOT refer to one platform but to several new platforms:

TNGA-C (GA-C) C segment

TNGA-K (GA-K) Camry class

TNGA-L (GA-L) luxury RWD

That certainly makes more sense, it's just irritating that most publications simply use TNGA....

A new TNGA-? will be for BOF vehicles. The first car is likely to be the new Land Cruiser or Tundra in 2021.

It's not inaccurate. TNGA is the architecture, -C, -K, and -L are platforms in that architecture.

Umm NO.

TNGA is a series of new architectures. For example, C and L are not related. It was called "new" because they were new and "global" because Toyota reduced the number of similar-sized platforms it had.

"The first of Toyota’s new TNGA-based vehicles will appear as early as this year, most likely starting with the next-generation Prius. Separate platforms will be developed for Toyota’s compact cars and large, front-wheel-drive models."

While I don't doubt that I'm probably confused and possibly misinformed, the line you quoted doesn't disprove my statement.

But the link I provided does as does the line. You're saying that TNGA is ONE platform that is simultaneously FWD, RWD, and AWD. The line and the article say otherwise...as does Toyota I might add.
