    Kevin Hunter - President of Toyota's North American design studio, Calty - said Toyota's global president Akio Toyoda had challenged the company's designers to create cars that spark people's emotions.

    Mr Hunter:
    This new era of Toyota design was evident in vehicles like the all-new Corolla hatch.

    All of this is based upon Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) underpin all new Toyota vehicles and will play a fundamental role in the years to come.

    TNGA is focused on engineering that is out of sight. A lower center of gravity, more rigid frame, new suspension and greater use of high-strength steel provide direct benefits that result in balanced handling, a more engaging drive, and a safer structure.

    TNGA also enables lower rooflines and hoods that are lower and more visually distinctive with more appealing proportions.
