2008 Toyota Matrix/F3R
DETROIT, Jan 9, 2006 -- The Toyota F3R, an exciting new concept vehicle that features unique interior seating, was shown today at the 2006 North American International Auto Show. With younger people hanging out in their cars, they almost become an extension of home. The Toyota design team came up with three very modern looking sets of seats. Each is unique. Up front, the driver's seat reclines and swivels, and the passenger seat reclines to form a comfortable chaise. In the middle, the right and center sections of the 40/20/40 seat fold into the floor and the left-hand seat reclines fully to form, with the third row, an avant-garde sofa.
Could the F3R be the next Toyota Matrix (2007-8)?
Mind you, I'd expect no chaise/sofa lounge seating would pass any safety regulations in the US, and more conventional seating would be implemented, but pivoting 2nd row seats, with a 2+2+2 set-up, could be in the works.
