• World premiere of FT-86 Open concept
• World premiere of Toyota i-Road concept
• First European motor show appearance of the new RAV4
Toyota has taken on the challenge of awakening the passion in its products while, at the same time, trying to ensure that its vehicles remain a logical choice. With this in mind the world’s largest automaker has taken the wraps off two contrasting new concepts at the Geneva motor show. The FT-86 Open and Toyota i-Road concepts will pave the way for two new model introductions that will augment the Toyota model range in the coming months. They share the spotlight with the all-new, fourth-generation RAV4 compact SUV.
FT-86 Open concept
The Toyota FT-86 Open concept previews a possible future development of the award-winning 86 sports coupe. The show car will help Toyota gauge public reaction to the idea, at the same time as it carries out engineering tests on a prototype.
The Toyota i-Road has been conceived as a compact, fun and emissions-free personal mobility concept, designed to offer quick and efficient urban transport for two people.
The fourth generation RAV4 will be appearing at a European motor show for the first time, coinciding with its market launch in Europe. The newcomer will make its South African debut during the second quarter of this year. The new model builds on its pioneering heritage, putting a greater emphasis on the qualities demanded by the modern families that are at the heart of its target market, without sacrificing its core values.
The new model offers distinctive styling, a high quality interior, greater efficiency and improvements to its all-wheel drive system that help deliver a more engaging drive.
RAV4’s debut will be supported by two special design studies, the RAV4 Premium and RAV4 Adventure.
