That steering wheel

Seems no articles have mentioned (not that they would) anything on the steering wheel adjustment. From looking at pictures it looks as if it may be a tilt only affair and on telescope function.

I'm pretty sure one of the tech manuals said tilt and telescopic.

I'm seeing the same thing, it looks like he pulls it towards him self right at the end after tilting it up and down for a bit.

Negative. It's tilt and telescopic, at least it looks like it and I think the tech manual said it was. Kinda surprised no one tried it at tms or scion though.

Is it just me, or does that steering wheel on the car doesn't look sporty enough?

The 3 spoke one on the Celica GTS or the 3 spoke one on the Altezza suits the car more IMO.

+1 Look like a cheap Mustang steering wheel. I wish an STI steering wheel.

MK1 concept had the best steering wheel. How hard was it to make it look like that?
