Why not an AWD hot hatch? Toyota a pedigree with AWD performance from rallying. The TRD Aurion have been a winner if it was AWD of front-wheel drive.

used to do a little hatch here called the Matrix was available as AWD. Wasn’t a bad car for the bobble head crew as the was a bit rough.

If they bring any of the series into Oz it may be a good but they are getting pretty in the tooth now.

Toyota has coasting for a long time and they have some work ahead of them if are going to sell passenger to anyone but pensioners.

Just wait for the wowsers to get of this! Wait, I here the maons and howls of the chief Scruby. lol!!

Oh well at State Governments will a small fortune from the cameras taking digital of all these new shiny Toyotas past them, with the hair on fire! Chuckle! ’em on. )
