They sure will try if I'm dumb enough to set a foot in their showroom.
A stock Civic, thank you. I'm an adult.
And how Toyota plans on marketing this sharp looking, next Avalon in their lineup.
Toyota's all-new 2023 Toyota Crown will launch with its “Says So Much” campaign. The campaign conveys how great it feels to show off the all-new youthful style and improved performance of Toyota’s all-new sedan.
The fully integrated targeted campaign was developed by Saatchi & Saatchi. The campaign highlights the driving the reimagined sedan and “Says So Much” about what the buyer will experience from the 2023 Toyota Crown.

There is no justice in a world where she is not paying at last $10k a year in car insurance.

Sorry that it took so long but the 2023 Toyota Crown first drive vid is up...
The Toyota Crown is a mid-size luxury sedan that has been in production since 1955. It is one of Toyota's longest-running models and is primarily sold in Japan.
Previous generations of the Crown have been known for their comfortable ride, spacious interiors, and advanced features such as driver-assistance technologies and hybrid powertrains.
In the all-new 2023 Crown, the tradition continues with a high level of luxury and the very latest technology. Along with the attractive exterior, it incorporates some of Toyota's latest advancements in areas of connectivity thanks to the Plano HQ Connectivity team kicking @$$ and taking names.
