Toyota's Psy-style Waku-Doki ad inherits Japan's bizarre ad crown
Jul 29, 2014 - 4:55 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Etc., Japan, Marketing/Advertising, Videos, Toyota



A new Japanese Toyota ad featuring crisply suited businessmen driving into the jungle only to segue into a Psy-style music-video dance-off with a gorilla and natives is the latest car commercial to go viral. Jungle Wakudoki is the newest installment in a grand tradition of bizarre ads from the island nation that are by turns hilarious, head-scratching and occasionally even frightening.

Let's face it: My people are weird.

I'm half-Japanese and take suitable pride in my Asian roots, but even I can't figure out what's been slipped into the water coolers of the country's ad agencies much of the time - or the nation at large, for that matter. From Japan's ubiquitous obsession with all things... [Read More]

Scion xB to be replaced by Auris hatchbach, iQ dead after 2014
Jul 28, 2014 - 6:31 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Budget, Hatchback, Scion, Toyota



Scion seemed like such a good idea when it was first launched. Toyota's aim was to provide young people with stylish, affordable cars that would serve as a gateway to the automaker's family of products. It was also supposed to be something of an incubator for new ideas that were too radical for its more conservative Toyota and Lexus brands. Over a decade since its launch, the brand has languished, and today's showroom is populated by slow-selling and aging vehicles that have often been slow to receive upgrades. However, there may be a bright spot on the imminent horizon, as there are reportedly a slate of new models on the way over the next three... [Read More]

2015 Toyota Yaris to start at $14,845* and look like this
Jul 24, 2014 - 5:41 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Budget, Hatchback, Toyota, Design/Style



Toyota released a new Yaris in Europe and its Vitz clone in Japan a few months ago, so we knew it would only be a matter of time before it would launch the new hatchback here in North America. And that time has come.

The new, more distinctive 2015 Yaris features far more aggressive exterior styling, a look set apart by that large lower air dam and X-motif front end. It rides on a retuned suspension hooked up to an altogether more rigid chassis, and Toyota promises it will ride more quietly and comfortably than the model it replaces. Inside the new model has additional soft-touch materials in a more comfortable cabin equipped with everything from a... [Read More]

Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet, Dodge, Mazda, Nissan, Porsche, Toyota



Oh, the heady days of 1993, back when the Clinton Presidency was just getting underway, and it seemed like every hot new rock band was coming out of Seattle. Sports cars in the US had finally shaken off the shackles that slowed them during the '70s and '80s, and you could buy any number of legitimately quick vehicles again. MotorWeek recently went...

Toyota engineer warns automous cars could increase fuel use, urban sprawl
Jul 18, 2014 - 4:11 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Technology, Toyota



An increasing number of people are starting to consider the potential downsides of a transition to autonomous cars. The FBI is already looking at them for the potential ill effects on law enforcement, and a scientist for Toyota is raising the possibility that driverless vehicles could actually be detrimental to the environment over the long term.

Ken Laberteaux, who studies future transportation for Toyota, thinks that autonomous cars could lead to more pollution, not less, says Bloomberg. However, Laberteaux's theory isn't so much based purely on science as it is considering behavioral and historical trends.... [Read More]

Unifor may establish local union for Toyota's Canadian plants
Jul 17, 2014 - 6:12 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Plants/Manufacturing, Toyota, UAW/Unions, Canada



Union tactics apparently translate across borders, as Canada's Unifor may take inspiration from the United Auto Workers' recent move at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, TN, and establish a local for the Toyota factories in Cambridge and Woodstock.

Unifor last attempted to organize the workers at the two... [Read More]

How Toyota's neighbor delayed 23,000 of its deliveries
Jul 17, 2014 - 2:45 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Car Buying, Japan, Toyota



Don't you just hate when your neighbors' mess becomes your problem? Toyota certainly has good reason to be upset, after an dirty mishap at a steel mill delayed thousands of vehicle exports from its nearby port in Nagoya, Japan, (pictured above) by as much as a month.

The messy situation occurred on June 22 when the mill near the port lost power and had to burn off an excess buildup of coke oven gas - which isn't exactly a situation friendly to living beings or the environment. According to Automotive News, ... [Read More]

2015 Toyota Sienna SE keeps the swagger, adds thoughtful updates [w/videos]
Jul 17, 2014 - 2:45 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Minivan/Van, Toyota



Toyota found huge success with its "Swagger Wagon" rap video for the 2011 Sienna SE. It showed that a minivan could actually sort of maybe be fun and didn't have to be a lame vehicle for people who long ago lost their sense of humor. Now that there is a slight refresh for the 2015 model, the company is trying to capture that effervescent image again with a bunch of videos aimed at... [Read More]

Toyota Prius sets a different kind of Nurburgring lap record [w/video]
Jul 15, 2014 - 11:14 PM - by Toyota Forum
Filed under: Hybrid, Toyota



Scroll down the leaderboards of Nürburgring lap times and you'll see mostly racing cars, supercars and sports cars. Delve deep enough and you'll eventually get to hatchbacks and sedans, albeit the most performance-focused of their kind. But a hybrid? Sure, the Porsche 918 Spyder posted the top time for a street-legal series production car, and it's technically a hybrid, but we're talking about another kind of hybrid here. We're talking about a Toyota Prius.

That's right: the Prius just set a lap record around the Nordschleife. But it wasn't for the lap time. In fact, miles per hour barely factored in (except for staying above the minimum 37-mph average speed mandated on the vaunted racing circuit). No, this was about miles per gallon.

Toyota took one of its... [Read More]
