Comment + gallery: Toyota’s Yaris HSD concept

Posted by cdnlive March 3rd, 2011

The HSD concept previews the design direction for the next generation Yaris, but there’s nothing groundbreaking here…

Showcasing Toyota’s proprietary hybrid technology in a B-segment package, the monovolume exterior design features some hybrid-specific styling cues previously seen on the Prius and Lexus RX450h. These visual identifiers include the LED headlamps and taillamps and blue Toyota badges.

Within compact exterior dimensions is a ‘spacious practical interior’, Toyota claims. We would have liked to see this for ourselves, but the blacked-out windows of the show car demonstrate that it’s not yet been finished.

  1. Agree, that there is nothing ground breaking, but then again if we compare it to the Mitsubishi Global Small, this seems way head.

    How the Japanese have lost it all, seems difficult to convey.

    Perplex.
