I'm talking of course about the storm that is the flourishing minicar market outside the United States, for which Toyota has introduced its newest radical compact vehicle, the Porte. After careful analysis of so-called "lifestyle scenarios," Toyota determined that people get in and out of their cars an awful lot, so convenient ingress and egress was key with the Porte, hence the wide-opening wireless remote-control electric sliding door on the passenger side and low ground clearance. The flat floor throughout makes it possible for everyone to get in and out of the car via one door. The seats are covered in a silk-derived natural fabric to prevent skin irritation, and "Plasmacluster Ions" that continually refill the cabin with fresh air. Engine choices will be 1.3 and 1.5 liter pieces with Toyota's VVT-i technology. In general, the Porte takes traditional fixed ideas about auto transport and makes them appear sorry and old-fashioned.
