Later this summer, Toyota will begin to ship the 2025 Toyota Crown Signia, the inevitable SUV version of the nontraditional Crown sedan. Introduced to replace the larger-than-a-Camry-and-slightly-more-lux Toyota Avalon, the 2023 Crown restored the use of a Toyota model name sold in the U.S. from 1958 to 1973. The 1958 Toyota Crown was the first Japanese car sold in the U.S.

After Avalon sales numbers dipped and Americans were more interested in SUVs and trucks than sedans (which we still are), Toyota dropped a sedan from its lineup and put the Avalon model name on the shelf. In a few decades, we’ll likely see a new Toyota vehicle with the Avalon name.

The modern Crown sedan sits higher than conventional cars and has an intentionally sporty, rugged appearance. All modern Toyota Crowns, including the new Crown Signia, have hybrid powertrains and all-wheel drive (AWD).

Why the Crown Signia matters

Toyota already sells SUVs of every size and two truck sizes. SUVs certainly are extremely useful for many drivers, but vehicle preferences change. The toughened-up Crown sedan and the new crossover SUV version may indicate Toyota’s best determination of the next direction.

As one of the largest automakers in the world, Toyota also has a role in shaping what buyers desire. The Crown models’ tougher-but-not-too-tough look of the Crown models may indicate what Toyota wants to manufacture for the next decade. The Crown’s higher seating position spares some space for EV batteries underneath the passenger compartment.

VW reveals 2025 ID. Buzz trim levels and features, no launch date or prices yet
Break out your tie-dyed t-shirts, the VW ID. Buzz is coming
2025 VW ID. Buzz and vintage VW Bus parked in front of rolling hills.

Start waxing your surfboard. VW revealed three U.S. introductory trim levels for the long-awaited 2025 VW ID. Buzz, the all-electric descendent of the original VW Microbus.  We have to wait for specifics such as initial order date, pricing, range, and towing capacity, but VW released the details on the three trim levels for the U.S. launch.
Why the U.S. version of the VW ID. Buzz matters

The 1960s was an interesting time in the U.S., with a counterculture movement that emerged from the post-WWII Baby Boomer generation and challenged conventional expectations. The VW Microbus was an icon of that tie-dyed period of U.S. history. When VW confirmed that the ID. Buzz concept vehicle would go into production, the company noted that U.S. buyers' enthusiasm for a new 'VW bus' was the driving factor.

What we know about Toyota’s new MR2 so far
The new MR2 is not for you
Second generation Toyota MR2

While it may be known for its pickup trucks and hybrids, Toyota also produces world-leading sports cars like the Supra. In 2026, it’s set to revive one of its best-loved mid-engine sports coupes after nearly 20 years. The MR2 was last manufactured in 2007, but a new version will be on sale in Japan in the near future. Here’s what we know about it.

Japanese motoring website Best Car seems to be the main source of information on the upcoming MR2 as things stand. It seems to believe that the coupe will pack 316 horsepower and 304 lb-ft of torque courtesy of the same 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-three engine you’ll find in both the GR Yaris and the GR Corolla. In terms of transmission choices, purists will undoubtedly be pleased that there is a six-speed manual option available. For those uncomfortable with a stick shift, you can still opt for an eight-speed automatic.

What we know about Toyota’s next-gen RAV4 so far
What to expect with the next-gen RAV

Since its debut in 1994, the Toyota RAV4 has been a perennial favorite among consumers who want something with a little more versatility than a traditional sedan but don't want to go the full-blown SUV route. Initially dubbed as an acronym for "Recreational Activity Vehicle with 4-Wheel Drive," Toyota has since changed that mantra to "Robust Accurate Vehicle with 4-Wheel Drive." We're not entirely sure what "accuracy" Toyota is referring to, but it has been able to target a core (and ever-expanding) audience, which has allowed the RAV4 to celebrate three decades of success this year. Now in its fifth generation, which began in 2018, it seems about time for the RAV4 to transition to another generation, which should be coming in the next year or two at the most. The following is what we know thus far about what to expect with the next-gen RAV.
What powertrain will the new RAV4 have?

Though in terms of size, the RAV4 more closely resembles the Corolla, its larger proportions and slightly heavier curb weight dictate that it will more than likely use the larger Camry's powertrain lineup for propulsion. The 2025 Camry, which is now offered solely as a hybrid in North America, currently uses a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter DOHC inline-4 cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing-Intelligence by Electric motor (VVT-iE), which produces a net of 225 hp for front wheel drive models and 232 hp with available all-wheel drive. This sounds like the perfect starting point for the next-gen RAV4, as Toyota tends to use the same motors across its lineup with little change.
