Five Brand New Toyota Vehicles that Have People Talking in 2017
1. 2017 Toyota 86
When you're considering an exciting new vehicle a sports car certainly comes to mind. In 2017, the ultimate sports car available to the public is the Toyota 86. There are many reasons that this ride is being touted as the best sports car of 2017. The 2.0-liter flat-four engine 86 has been constructed with an ultra lightweight body, a rear-wheel drive chassis with dynamic handling, sport-tuned suspension, and a Track Mode that features vehicle stability control. The 6-speed manual offers an optimized power curve, 205 hp, and 156 lb ft of torque. Aesthetics are breathtaking too. The 86 was designed with a long hood and short rear deck, a reshaped front chin spoiler, LED lighting, chrome-tipped cat-back dual exhaust, and integrated wing-like projections for aerodynamics and well, awesomeness.

2. 2017 Corolla iM
Corolla you say? We get it, while there is no doubt that the best selling brand in the world is the ultimate vehicle for practical use, the word exciting may not come to mind. But please note the iM here. In a bold move, Toyota has merged the groundbreaking Scion iM (now retired) with the Coralla. The result, is a sleek high-performance vehicle that will shake things up in your urban or suburban oasis. This sporty hatchback with 17-inch alloy wheels was designed with a black honeycomb grille, body-toned spoiler, LED Daytime Running Lights, LED taillights, and chrome-tipped exhaust. The Corolla iM bounds away from your driveway with confidence, thanks to the sport-tuned MacPherson strut front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension. The available Sport Mode allows you to unleash your wild side while satellite radio, available 6-speakers controlled via a standard high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen let you do so to the soundtrack of your choice.

3. 2017 Toyota Prius
Hybrid has shaken off the sole tag of responsibility and added the word exhilarating to the mix. Nowhere is this more true than with the 2017 Prius. Leading the pack of new best new hybrids, the updated Prius Liftback has been designed for aesthetics and performance as much as iT has for sustainability. It now claims an athletic, daring, trendsetting, and futuristic new look. The updated POWER Mode delivers exactly what the moniker promises, increasing throttle response for added oomph. Auto-infotainment is also the key to keeping things exciting in this Prius. The available 7-inch high-resolution touch-screen / split-screen display turns your cockpit into an entertainment center, complete with Bluetooth connectivity, available Qi-compatible
wireless mobile device charging, an auxiliary audio jack, iPhone/Pod connectivity, advanced voice recognition, and six speakers. The aircraft-inspired technology Head-Up Display provides an additional display, on your windshield! View more on the 2017 Prius.
4. 2017 RAV4
Once again in 2017 the RAV4 enthralls all who lay eyes on it. This is especially true of the new Platinum edition, which has full-body color treatment to give it an illustrious look. All versions of the RAV4 deliver driver's a boost of confidence. For instance, the SE has an available innovative Dynamic Torque-Control AWD system. This enhances handling by distributing engine power from the front to the rear while optimizing the crossover SUV's braking system. Sport Mode provides an even more exciting drive, delivering enhanced acceleration and revamped shift points from the 6-speed automatic transmission. Even the Hybrid packs a powerful punch, with 194 net horsepower and remarkable acceleration. Auto-infotainment is just as compelling, as in addition to the expected Bluetooth connectivity, USB port, and advanced voice recognition, you score 11 JBL GreenEdgeT speakers, including a bass booming subwoofer. Exciting stuff indeed! View more on the 2017 RAV4.
5. 2017 CH-R
This vehicle marks one of the most exciting developments from Toyota, ever. The CH-R is a concept car that is becoming a reality in 2017. The unique (to say the least) 2-door compact crossover SUV will be one of the first to translate Toyota's New Global Architecture for North American drivers. What this includes, is an engine lower down in the engine bay. That equates an enhanced center of gravity and a lower overall vehicle height. This improves handling and, secondly, it allows the vehicle to measure just under 62 inches in height. It looks as sleek and compact as a sporty hatchback, but retains all of the cargo and passenger convenience of a proper SUV. The dramatic exterior is complemented on the inside, with impactful touches such as a leather dashboard to piano gloss accents and futuristic buttons. More will be unveiled as the CH-R arrives on the mass market. Put yourself on the wish list and we will contact you as soon as it hits our lot this year.
