I'm not buying this is a "leak". I've been to Toyota events where they didn't want photos leaking, and they manage that pretty well. A photo inside the car carrier is way too easy to prevent.

@funwheeldrive that is one of the reasons I don't like silver cars in general. That color always screams "fleet model" to me which makes me immediately downgrade it in my mind.

Overall, it looks about like I expected, and still not sure I like. Need to see the side profile.

That everything is much more subdued than the concept was expected. I think it looks OK; not great but OK.It may have even more of a visual link to the MKIV than the concept did. I suppose my biggest complaint is that it looks narrower and taller than I would like.

i'm sure the mkiv was met with the same criticism, especially from mkiii owners.

Now granted I haven't read through all 220 pages, is there actually an official release date for this car? I feel it's been dragging it's feet for way too long.

I'm pretty sure it's getting revealed at a car show in January

Clarification of point! I never said there "would not be a 4 cylinder" I said "we don't know what there will be yet".
I have also said that if there was indeed a 4 cylinder then we may not see it here. At least not a first for the simple reason that the North American "more power" mentality would restrict sales to a level it just may not be worth their while to get it approved for sale here.

I've never liked silver paint, but I have to say that silver (or a very metallic grey) really lets you appreciate the curves and character lines of a car.

Of course, that's not always a good thing... depends on the car.

Ya. The trailer and the angle give a very wonky perspective.
