The editorial staff at magazine have sent me a message with this car at I think they have. subtle, but why else would you a new dad in his mid-thirties a vehicle as exceedingly as the Toyota Zelas to test? this is a shot across the as if to say, You see this Nelson? is all behind you now.

The car seemed to at every turn that it quite suited for the domestic I currently enjoy; the groceries fitted in the boot, the child seat had no chance in the rear and my full-size American in-laws fat, but tall) would had their knees against chins had I insisted that we the Zelas out to dinner. And so I basically the car alone over the few days I had it, in rare moments of solitude Er, on. Strike the opening paragraph and it with this: The kind at wheels have given new father his freedom back, if for a few fleeting minutes.

Out on the road the Zelas doesn’t care who you are, and the sleek, black leather-clad interior convinced me that I was someone hipper, someone like our and turtleneck-wearing intern Julius.

The car is with a premium eight-speaker system that Toyota with the meagre six-speaker offered by its competitors. The front are race inspired; still but with a little bit of thigh-gripping love in the corners. The rear are, let’s face it, which is how coupés are meant to be. people are known for their orders and initiation rituals so the seat of this car could as a sort of clout barometer, is, if you’re riding in the back, low on the totem pole.

As I mentioned before, a week’s of groceries fits well into the back after a bit of especially once I had to remove the privacy hatch for better To be fair, had I just reclined the seats, the storage space have been ample to accommodate a decent bit of cargo. In the accompanying the car, Toyota that you can fit a snowboard or surfboard in the with the seats down. luck catching any of Dubai’s to non-existent waves with less than a kayak

Toyota Zelas

The Zelas’ efficient 2.5-litre dual VVT-i engine 176bhp and 230Nm of torque at Its six-speed electronically controlled is smooth, and in automatic mode the points are optimised for fuel Put the car in ‘D’ and the console display an ‘Eco’ symbol, which is because the car lacks the obligatory mode found in the majority of that bother to have an Eco The good news is that, in Eco the performance of the Zelas is comparable to a sports saloon when in Eco mode. The bad news is that you are to actively want to drive a sports saloon in Eco mode as it a bit like leaving the emergency on. I’m all for fuel conservation you, I just think Eco mode in a V8-equipped whip is a bit

Actually, that’s not a fair as the much lighter Zelas is adequate in Eco mode, if a bit Yaris-like. effectively ends when you over to manual mode and control of the transmission. I found I the centre console shifter to shifting, but both methods the driving experience to grin-inducing My only complaint is that the Zelas can quickly deliver you to speeds in exciting, high-rpm the road noise is not quite but hard to tune out. my recent devotion to classical no amount of boosting the Zelas’ stereo system would to drown out the roar of the road. won’t necessarily be a problem if 22 and listen exclusively to death

The Zelas offers a sports-tuned suspension as well as vehicle control, traction control, and tyres; all culminating in a vehicle is a great deal of fun on winding and, dare I say it, twisting The front MacPherson strut provides ride comfort and handling while the rear wishbone supports vehicle

I found the feel of the power to be just a tad crude, but on the whole the evinces good control and It might not feel as glued to the as a sportscar costing twice as (or more), but then with its and small frame, it doesn’t as much weight to shift in the And that’s the thing really, by a light vehicle, with handling and paddle shifting, the aspirated 2.5-litre Camry feels more than for getting from A to B.

The Zelas offers a not-quite but certainly guttural exhaust is a bit like a metaphor for thecar; it has of the bravado of the little Italian that owned the category upon a time, but it does personality.
