Toyota seems to be on course to give us a different take on its new vehicles, or at least those that we’re accustomed to seeing from the Japanese automaker. Instead of the usual list of models, Toyota is using the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show to present a handful of concept models that fall under the Aqua name.
After introducing the Air Roadster Concept , Toyota is following that up with the Aqua C Crossover Concept — a compact hybrid vehicle that the company is presenting as a potential future crossover. Maybe there’s a future for this crossover, possibly even in Japan, or maybe there isn’t, but the vehicle, like the other two it rolls with, looks pretty bubbly and could be a nice for the younger markets.
As far as the concept itself goes, Toyota gave it a nice design touch, complete with an identifiable front grille, skid plates, aggressive wheel arches, and roof rails. Who knew; this concept has a lot of functionality to it, too.
Toyota has made no announcement on what lies ahead for the Aqua C Crossover Concept, but the good news is that we should find out soon enough when the Tokyo Motor Show opens its doors in a few days.
