I that it’s the right to do for Toyota to offer the seven-seat for the v in the USA, as well, as it can displace low-efficiency models (vans, assuming that they care about the environment they advertise- I throw the gauntlet). opinions?

Is it Toyota or USA who said your market wants 5 seats?

As an outsider I it interesting that many fine tune their for the American market but shoot in the foot doing so. VW had a reputation for economical cars (bug in the 1960s/70s) but their offerings fall short of that the US version of the Passat is specially for the US market and is bigger and less than the Passat version in Europe. Why? Because US focus group run by VW USA indicated wanted more space, power and weren’t bothered by But do they sell more now? No.

A hybrid is on the way. I didn’t even opt for the 3rd row in my because it ate up too much cargo (load floor is

6 higher you opt for 3rd row) and the seats were way too to actually be used by adults. I the cargo space suffers in the v w/ the 3rd row as with a higher load In this picture, the middle row are all the way up and the 3rd row space is still really

And, as others have the uptake on the Rav4 was really and it actually appears to have a useful 3rd row seat.

I’d that a hybrid Rav4 is on the way it is redesigned in the fall. We know it is an EV. That seems like a fit for 3 rows, especially if they AWD like the Highlander.


Yeah, I get that the third-row are small (though they say even tall people can use for a while), and that the RAV4’s 3rd row uptake is small (but few it exists really), but the fact that people like want a v with the seven option, for kids, or for seating and can do without a van or SUV (that get horrid efficiency-even the North America if the darn option were available. Since the Japanese gets the seven-seat option, and the market gets the seven-seater it’s not like the they make it happen. There may be hurdles

or costs for testing another but the Toyota rep said that it was a decision, which is why I call to do the right thing and give the (even if they lose a bit of on it somewhere). They should get more sales for the v if the option available, just because people can consider it (those need six or seven seats in vehicles). The other marketing may be that they make margins on the big gas hogs and don’t the v to sell too many (unfounded theory).

I have been waiting on the Sienna for about five now- hey maybe that’s it- the is a North America vehicle, and they think that the v overlap the market for an upcoming Sienna. Frankly, though, a Sienna would probably not get near the v’s fuel-efficiency.

Regarding the impact that the seats has on the cargo area- are some pics from the Japan site:

5-Seater, row 2 up:

7-Seater, row 2 seats up, row 3 seats

The difference is about 7%. With the seats down, the total volume difference is only 3%.
