    Looks like Yakuza will be rolling in this blacked out

    I think it looks amazing. Finally something that can (hopefully) match the Japan-only Crown.

    I’m a little surprised they’re still using the Toyota brand to sell it though. Looks a lot more like a Lexus IMO.

    This is the best Looking car on the Crown platform to date, maybe if they bring back the Athlete it would look similar to this, the wide arches of the rear give this alot of presence.

    Very clean and cohesive cab-rearward look (no "floating roof", tearducts or fake vents, thank you!) I hope this design language goes into all future Toyotas!

    Looks like this platform could easily take an inline 6.

    I like it
    Looks more like a Lexus than a Toyota though. I can smell a lot of Freemasons

    This is so much better looking than the first generation that I legit thought it was just a concept car at first.

    That is more like it Toyota. The current Mirai is not the easiest on the eye but I have always liked it. This new Mirai Concept is just a great looking car.

    Seems a bit odd to keep using the Mirai name on such a vastly different vehicle aimed at a completely different audience. It’s a bit like if they called every hybrid (whether a car or crossover) a Prius (and yes I know about the Prius C and V, but they still looked like/had some relation to the original, and in Japan they had their own names). But I guess it is still just a concept.

    One of Toyota’s best designs in a while though

    That looks pretty amazing, such a massive improvement over the first generation.

    Since the Mirai has exchanged a wedge-shaped vehicle for a sleek saloon (and to some extent, Honda did the same with the Insight), what are the chances of Toyota doing the same with the Prius? :idea:

    Apart from the gaping front, it's a hell of an improvement over the old car. Sadly without a viable infrastructure, hydrogen cars will always remain as a pricey niche

    Lexus inspired front headlights.
    Supra inspired rear.
    Lexus inspired interior, even more beautiful.
    45º rear side is nice.
    45º front side I can't like the nose type 86 and grille only in front view.
    90º side more looks like a 4-door Supra LS.
    Aero rims TOP.
    And I miss the LF-A, it is what it is!.

    I don't know what you mean, they are both clearly large four-door cars available in blue.

    I like the interior shot where the mirrors look humongous.

    Those perspective renders are weird. This is one I need to see IRL.
