Engine: 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine combined with Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive

What's cool: Highly chiseled, imposing exterior — especially the front end — aimed at a younger audience; matte appearance of the brushed-metal exterior; center console that extends the length of the cabin, bisecting the rear seat

Show reaction: Lots of buzz, but the design had a polarizing effect.
