Here are some pics I took myself, after driving the car home:
Sorry for the bad quality. There's not that much light out. I'm bracing myself. Winter is coming.
I absolutely LOVE this feature:
The engine is called 1GFE, and I know it's not that common in the US (or even exists there at all), but it's a six cylinder, 2 liter engine that produces around 160 hp. The power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.
Dunno if US-sportcrosses have this, but in addition to the normal traction-control (I can turn it off and go drifting!) there is also a "snow-mode" that reduces the throttle-response and makes the car more predictable on slippery conditions. No VSC, though.
Apart from that, the euro-version is pretty similar to the US-version, I guess.
It's got electric fully adjustable leather seats (with heating), suade door-panels, electric folding mirrors, automatic adjustable headlamps (xenon) and more speakers in the trunk alone than my Corolla had in its entirety
I'm really loving my new car and this forum, and I'm looking forward to spending lots of hours here (though my wife probably isn't!)
