The side gills behind the front wheels allow air pressure to escape and along with the sweep at the rear of the vehicle they contribute significant downforce under.

I mean it looks small from the outside but I'm pretty tall and I have room to move my legs and do all of that I mean it is a sports car so I'm sitting low but I still have plenty of space right here.

You can also access the various suspension settings right on the steering wheel like how convenient is that the different drive modes feature Sport, Sport+ and track.
Paddle shifters behind the wheel are substantial though journalistically I think you might miss a crucial gear shift don't even worry about it.
The central glass buttons are beautiful. With switches above to control air flow.
Overhead since the navigation screen that's much easier than the last generation so both see and use think.

Car Design: 2017 Future Toyota Adventure Concept (FOTO)

This angry-looking creation is the Toyota FT-AC, which stands for Future Toyota Adventure Concept.
A show car designed to appeal to surfing/hiking/cycling/outdoorsy types, it makes its debut at the 2017 Los Angeles motor show. 

A multi-tool on wheels

Among the lifestyliest design details on the FT-AC are removable foglight pods can be used as portable lights, and a safari-style roofrack which features LED marker lights at its front corners to light off-road trails, or – more unusually – act as a flash for infrared cameras embedded in the side mirrors.
The cameras can also be removed, and there’s an integrated wi-fi hotspot so no adventure need go without being Instagrammed.
There are LED lights on the back of the roof rack too, helping to illuminate the retractable built-in bike rack.  

Genuine off-road ability

With a long wheelbase, wide track, extreme approach and departure angles, skidplates and 20-inch wheels with knobbly all-terrain tyres, the FT-AC looks like it can walk the walk off-road. It also features twin recovery hooks just in case theoretical owners were to bite off more than they can chew.

When does it hit the streets (or trails) for real?

As the name suggests, it’s a concept car. Unlike the suggestion of the ‘future’ bit in the name, it doesn’t preview an upcoming Toyota production car – it’s described as being ‘currently a design experiment.’
The FT-AC has, however, been engineered with a petrol all-wheel-drive powertrain in mind, with torque vectoring, terrain response traction control and throttle map settings and a four-wheel lock mode.
It’s also been packaged with the potential to take a hybrid powertrain.
