Second gen xB, it's about time. It's been on sale in Japan since last Feb.


Did it say "world premiere"? Maybe it'll be a different car then...

It's not that bad in person (could use better choice of wheels). And for its size, the interior space is amazing, makes you feel like you are in a much bigger car. If efficiency and utility is concerned, this is a pretty good car.

I was thinking the same. But my guess was on Auris, the cheaper version of Blade.

The Celica is around 2700 pounds and the tC is about 3200 pounds. I don't think the 2ZZ would be a good match

At least they can keep selling these "hip" cars made for the young generation to 50 year olds.
