At the Tokyo Auto Salon 2024, Akio Toyoda exhibited the legendary Suzuki Jimny at Toyota's stand, taking everyone by surprise. Suzuki rejected the idea of a badge-engineered Toyota Jimny, highlighting the Jimny's inherent link to Suzuki's DNA, even if Toyoda expressed his love.
Besides, the Auto Salon 2024 extravaganza introduced a varied roster. Along with the Jimny, the unusual iQ GRMN stole the show with its unique performance qualities.
On this occasion, the Century SUV GRMN was shown. Its sporty twist and minivan-like sliding doors made it stand out. Utilizing the turbocharged three-cylinder engine from the GR Yaris, the Lexus LBX Morizo RR Concept showcased Toyota's dedication to spearheading automotive innovation.
A Yamaha Vino scooter was on display inside the Morizo Garage, proving that Toyota's love of unique automobiles wasn't limited to Toyotas and Lexuses. Interestingly, Toyoda wanted a Vespa at first, but he settled for the Vino since it was more affordable.
Toyoda stressed that his automobile purchases are typical of the common client, despite his powerful position. However, he acknowledged exploiting his influence to get limited edition GRMN versions, displaying a true affinity for unique and high-performance automobiles.
Showing up to the race in a Century Sedan GRMN further proves his dedication to making the automobile industry more exciting. Every Toyota is a statement in the quest for automotive perfection and thrills because the company refuses to settle for mediocrity.
