• 2013 Toyota Aqua C Cross Concept

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.

After years of facelifts and refreshes, the Toyota RAV4 finally saw its fourth generation at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The new RAV4 is not only redesigned inside and outside, it also receives new in-cabin technologies, a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine, new six-speed transmission and new safety features.

All the new RAV4 models will come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 176 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 172 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. The previous optional V-6 engine has been dropped.

Pricing for the new RAV4 begins at $23,300.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
