Toyota’s new small crossover was set to be unveiled last month at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, until concerns over the novel coronavirus outbreak prompted Switzerland to ban gatherings of more than 1,000 people, effectively canceling the event. The cancellation prompted many an automaker to host its planned debuts remotely, online, but Toyota decided to hold off.
That said, an April 23 reveal date still seems perhaps a bit premature, given that the new cute ute isn’t expected to go on sale in Europe for about another year. Will it make an appearance in the US new car market? We expect so, given that the upward sales trajectory of crossovers has been as high here as anywhere else in the world.
