Toyota FT-SX Concept

Toyota has been promising these "inspired" designs but I haven't seen any yet. I can really see the FT-SX become the inspiration for the next Highlander, but with an ass like this thing has, you better hope that that's one of the parts that gets "productionized". I will admit that I am no fan of current Toyota design, and it looks as if I probably won't be won over in the near future either. Enjoy the rest of the pictures.

      Interesting that the comments on the FT-SX only appeared right after the Detroit Auto Show in January. The "Foot-Sex" as Toyota insiders call it, certainly deserves more comment than what has appeared so far in AutoBlogs. In the most recent Vehicle Voice Internet Beauty Contest (http://www.vehiclevoice.com), the FT-SX was rated third for having good or great styling (50%) behind the Saturn Aura concept vehicle and the Infiniti M35/M45. This Camry-based crossover would certainly be an interesting addition to the Toyota line-up, but the "Foot-Sex" nomenclature should be changed to something catchier... like the Toyota Camry Fetish. Vehicle Voice is a place where you can weigh with opinions about your present car and about vehicles you will be seeing in the future.

      Derivative. Take a bit of Infinti FX, snub nose from Mazda/Volvo, headlight design from Acura TL, a dab of RX, pop in the air hose and inflate the fenders, add a bit of Bangle bustle. Oh well, the chairs look comfy, the wood is pretty, and it's a (YAWN!) Lexus so it must be good. RIGHT?

      Alright, I like this idea that so many concepts and production SUVs (and cars) have about creating a wide side opening with the B-pillar-less suicide door, but as many people that have actually used them have observed, the doors get in the way if you ever park in a stall (not that that ever happens) My question is this: Why not try this idea with a sliding door in the rear? Then at least you'd get the wide opening without the door being in the way quite so much. Is this too much of a minivan stigma to make it into the SUV world? Or is there A better reason than that for this not having been attempted?

      The problem with Toyota's designs is that they never look good - mainly (as evidenced by this) because of colour. A "radical" design and they show it in tan/gray!?

      I like this car's ass. I think it is an adorable, two-hands-worth ass. I really like the rest of it, too - especially its toothy grin. I'm just disappointed that it's not a production vehicle; I would like to buy one. I think it is distinctive, refreshing and hot. My wife likes it, too, although I'm not sure how she feels about its ass.
