Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
Step up to the Koba and $35,290 fetches you the AWD auto. But our car for the week was the $33,290 FWD version.
That deal scores you 17-inch alloys, a six-speaker stereo, dual-zone climate control, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, front and rear parking sensors, a digital clock from 1981, sat nav, fake leather trim, heated and folding mirrors, auto wipers and headlights and a space-saver spare tyre.
Unfortunately, the world's lowest-effort touchscreen hardware and software is on board, which remains one of the car's biggest disappointments. The system is shared with various other Toyotas and it's bordering on dire the longer it survives. The screen is dim, the design like a late-90s Winamp skin and the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto provides most of the nails required to knock together a coffin for the idea that this is a car the youth will dig, daddy-o.
And having to plug a charge cord into the USB port on the head unit itself creates visual clutter, which is a crying shame. Way to make a great cabin design go clunk.
