Toyota Displays a Trio of Concepts


A pair of RAV4s and an Auris Wagon concept show possible styling directions the brand could take with these strong-selling models.

While the Toyota GT-86 Open Concept may be taking most of the spotlight for the Japanese automaker at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, a few other concepts have also made their debut. The RAV4 Adventure concept is basically a dolled-up version of the brand’s strong-selling crossover only with more SUV-like off-road features. Painted in dark red, the Adventure features more pronounced wheel arches that house 20-inch alloys fitted with off-road tires.

The matte-painted front and rear bumpers have also been redesigned with fitted skid plates for a more rugged look. The treatment is finished off with machined roof rails, a unique front grille and custom side sills, as well as quad exhaust pipes that are integrated into the rear bumper. Also unveiled is the RAV4 Premium, which as you can guess, focuses on luxury. Also equipped with 20-inch alloys and redesigned bumpers, the interior receives two-tone leather with two-tone double stitching. An abundance of chrome trim decorates the roof rails and other exterior elements.

Last up is the Auris Touring Sports Black Concept. Painted in a black metallic finish with red and black 19-inch alloys, it features a new exhaust design and an interior with black leather sport seats and double red stitching on the door panels, steering wheel, dashboard, handbrake and gear shift lever. There’s also some Alcantara roof lining. Toyota didn't indicate whether any of these concepts would be put into production as trim packages, but anything is possible.
