The new Tj Cruiser is a crossover-compact with a TJ-encoded name: the letter T-Toolbox (literally translated as a tool box), J-joy. It’s ridiculous, but it turns out that the model is called “a tool box that brings pleasure.” In which kind of concept Toyota Tj Cruiser will get to the conveyor is not yet clear, as, however, not even known the approximate price of the novelty equipped with a hybrid power plant.
The appearance of Toyota’s new concept is not so ordinary, original and brutal, that the car can easily be mistaken for an armored car.

The main design features of the exterior of the body of the Japanese concept can safely be considered a straight front body with a huge falshadiatornoy grille, a majestic hood towering above the compact wheel arches, outstanding, in turn, from the body of the car.
Straight lines, smooth horizontal and vertical surfaces on the car body, by the way, in abundance. Smooth lines of the roof and side glazing, evenly cut feeds and indeed, like a van, swinging front doors and sliding doors of the second row – just rectangles, and the glass of the novelty with a clear straightness.
It only remains to add that the roof, hood and front wings of the conceptual novelty are covered with a special coating protecting the paintwork of these details from minor damage. So you can not be afraid of the formation of chips on the hood, scratches on the roof and wheel arches.
