The Important ChangesThe Shooting Brake's body length is increased by 55mm, giving cramped rear passengers (putting it mildly) much-needed legroom for longer journeys. The current fold-flat rear bench is also ditched in favour of a practical 60/40 split unit. Thanks to the SB's new body, seats-up boot capacity is increased from a tight 243 litres to a more family-friendly 298 litres, while seats-down capacity measures in at a useful 1040 litres (or 230 packs of nappies/diapers). Engine and transmission options will match those of the coupe (2.0-litre Subaru-derived boxer unit mated to either a six-speed manual or six-cog auto 'box), while the Shooting Brake's 0-62mph time of 7.8 and 8.5sec respectively is slower than the coupe's by 0.2 and 0.3sec. This is due to the SB's 86kg weight penalty. Naturally. UK pricing will start at £26,945 for the manual Shooting Brake version and £28,445 for the automatic. This represents an increase of just £1,950 for both models. So there you have it, Toyota. A brilliant new business plan for a car your customers never knew they wanted. Who's in?
