THIS?! I can't find a single thing nice to say. The rear end was shanked with an ugly blade. The face takes the worst aspects of every Toyota design and meshes them into a basket of hideous. The interior took what worked - then made it worse.
Right now, GM, Ford - and especially Hyundai w/ their Prius fighter just sent Toyota a letter of thanks.
Seriously - how does something like this happen? The lead designer of this needs to be fired. I remember fondly Toyota of the 80's having funky, fun, efficient little cars that people didn't mind driving. WHO would pay anything for this?!
