We wouldn't go so far as to describe the bZ4X as a beautiful electric car, but it stands out from Toyota's more traditional crop of crossovers. It also looks a lot like its corporate cousin, the Subaru Solterra. One aspect that we appreciate about EVs is that it's easier to forgo the disturbing big-grille trend. The Toyota bZ4X electric SUV has a smooth front end with sleek LED daytime running lights and bi-LED projector low- and high-beam headlights. The more expensive Limited has multi-LED headlights instead. Big, black-painted overfenders surround the wheel arches, dominating the side view. They're distinctive but rather jarring, especially on models finished in lighter colors. At the back, there are LED taillights and the cluster housing extends deep into the fenders.
XLE variants ride on 18-inch alloy wheels and come with a ducktail rear spoiler, black window trim, and a panoramic fixed glass sunroof. The Limited has larger 20-inch alloys, chrome window trim, and a foot-activated power liftgate. A split roof spoiler is one of the most unusual styling elements and is an option on Limited models only.
Key Toyota bZ4X dimensions reveal a crossover that's larger overall than the Volkswagen ID.4. It is 184.6 inches long, 73.2 inches wide excluding the mirrors, and 65 inches in height. The Toyota bZ4X's length is 3.7 inches longer than that of the RAV4. The wheelbase stretches to 112.2 inches and the ground clearance is 8.1 inches.
Being an EV, the bZ4X is far from lightweight. The base XLE with FWD weighs 4,266 pounds, and that goes all the way up to 4,464 lbs for the Limited AWD. Despite the size of the Toyota bZ4X, it's lighter than the ID.4.

The only no-cost color is Black. For an added cost, both trims can be finished in Wind Chill Pearl, Supersonic Red, Elemental Silver Metallic, or Heavy Metal.
Available exclusively on the Limited is a selection of two-tone colors. Here, a black roof is paired with one of the aforementioned premium shades. It has to be said that the Limited looks rather striking in red with the black roof and those black-painted overfenders.
