The front of Toyota’s FT-SX concept could show the design direction of future Toyota models. Designed at the Japanese maker’s US studio, the FT-SX features deep sculpted lines from the A-pillars through the grille and bumper and back to the front wheels. Toyota says the FT-SX could appeal to buyers who require the practicality and space of a traditional 4x4, but want a more environmentally-friendly vehicle. It’s described as lower and wider than a 4x4, but taller and more versatile than a saloon. The concept uses a 3.5-litre V6 and has four-wheel-drive.
