Toyota took the wraps off the new Tj Cruiser at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The concept is a cross between a practical cargo van and a sporty SUV.

The ‘T’ in Tj Cruiser stands for ‘Toolbox’ in reference to how the car can be used like a toolbox, while the ‘j’ stands for ‘joy’ in reference to the joy of visiting various places by car. While the ‘Cruiser’ is traditionally used by Toyota for its SUV line-up. Although the Tj Cruiser won’t see the production line, we expect the elements of the concept to trickle down in Toyota’s future products.

The Tj is a boxy vehicle with a square-ish cab. Meanwhile, the raised suspension with large SUV tyres lends it a sporty demeanour. The Tj Cruiser symbolizes a new genre incorporating the strengths of a van with those of an SUV, according to the Japanese carmaker. The show car measures 4,300x1,775x1,620mm in dimension with a wheelbase of 2,750mm.

The cabin is spacious enough for four passengers. The passenger seat can be reclined completely flat and can accommodate items of up to three metres in length. The backs of the seats and deck boards include numerous tie-down points. It enables easy anchoring of items from small packages to longer objects lending it a cargo van’s practicality. The back door is large enough for easy loading/unloading of large items. The doors are sliding one as well for comfortable ingress/egress.

The Tj Cruiser is based on Toyota’s versatile TNGA platform. The car is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine in conjunction with a hybrid powertrain. It comes with front-wheel-drive as standard but can be had with four-wheel drive as well.
