Toyota is heading to the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon with a very interesting ViRA concept of a three-door crossover.

The concept has received the “ViRA” moniker to reflect it’s a combination between the Vitz (Yaris) supermini and the RAV4 crossover. While the styling cues from those two models aren’t exactly very visible, the end result is quite interesting as it shows a sleek crossover with a low roofline and a sporty profile.

It seems to target the younger audience with its bold design and maybe is a sign of a future crossover coupe from Toyota, although for now it’s purely a concept. Technical specifications are not available at this point, but we do notice the typical oversized alloys with massive disc brakes and large calipers. It also has flush door handles along with cameras replacing the conventional side mirrors. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of headroom in the back, so the interior likely has a 2+2 seating arrangement.

Perhaps Toyota will tell us more about it next week when the ViRA concept will show up at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon. We won’t be too surprised if the crossover has a full electric hardware arrangement judging by Toyota's recent history with concepts.
