    Toyota Plans A New Subcompact Crossover

    One of the three crossover concepts will go into production

    Over the course of this year, Toyota has unveiled three different crossover concepts; the FT-4X, TJ Cruiser, and the FT-AC. We figured that one of these concepts could make it into production and this was confirmed by a Toyota executive.

    "It's like the 90s again, we can have more than one vehicle in each segment if they are different enough," Toyota Motor North America General Manager Jack Hollis told Motor Authority.

    While the three concepts differ greatly in terms of design, Hollis explained this was done to "test the waters in the market and get feedback from consumers." No matter which design is chosen, there are certain details that have been confirmed. Hollis said this new model will sit alongside the C-HR and be based on the company's TGNA platform. Power will come from a four-cylinder, but don't count out a hybrid option. Unlike the C-HR, this model will have the choice of front or all-wheel drive. The new crossover will also influence the design of the next-generation 4Runner and RAV4.

    Hollis said the model will have a price tag of under $20,000 and go on sale within the next two to three years.

    The C-HR is small and unconventional enough (and the RAV4 big enough) that there is room for something in between them.. The concepts were not all that mainstream but the FT-4X is probably closest to the end result.

    Build 1 out of 3?   Build all 3!  Toyota should build 50 new crossovers to appease the masses.

    I see what your doing there SMK, you want them to bankrupt themselves so MB can rule the world. :P
