Toyota Motor Corp. packs plenty of gee-whiz technology into its tiny Progres luxury sedan, powered by either a 2.5- or 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine. Curtain-shield airbags and radar cruise control are featured in the Progres, which is just 177.2 inches long. The curtain-shield airbags deploy from the front pillar and roof side downward between the passengers and the vehicle side. The radar cruise control maintains a fixed distance from the vehicle ahead. The Progres has an overall height of 56.5 inches and width of 66.9 inches, and it rides on a 109.4-inch wheelbase. Prices range from ¥3.1 million, or about $23,308 at current exchange rates for the NC 250 version shown here, to $27,444 for the range-topping NC 300. Toyota targets Progres sales of 2,000 a month in Japan and has no plans to export, a spokesman said.
