Whether you like it or not, we are all living in an automotive age becoming increasingly dominated by crossovers and SUVs.
As the number of these high-riding vehicles hitting streets around the world has increased quite progressively over recent years, you might find it difficult to notice the difference in vehicles driving around you compared to just a few short years ago.
However, next time you are driving, we recommend taking note of just how many crossovers you see and how few sedans or coupes are now being used. You may be shocked by what you observe.
Companies like Mitsubishi and Ford are succumbing to demand from consumers and building virtually nothing other than crossovers and SUVs but one of the major car manufacturers which has remained steadfast in also building traditional cars is Toyota. Among Toyota’s non-crossover global models include the Aygo, Yaris, Corolla, Camry, 86, Prius, Hilux, and most recently, the new Toyota Supra and each show that there’s still some life left in vehicles of these types.
This is something you will never be able to unsee
Despite this, an artist from Russian publication Auto Review thought it would be an interesting idea to render a crossover inspired by the Supra. The finished product won’t have us mailing our local Toyota rep anytime soon.
In creating the vehicle you see before you, the artist largely retained the front and rear fascias of the Supra but stretched them vertically to better suit a crossover with the sides of a BMW X4. Two extra doors were then added to the sides of the imaginary Toyota, resulting in a vehicle which will probably haunt us for years to come.
Unlike Ford which is designing a crossover inspired by the iconic two-door Mustang, Toyota has made no indication that it intends on doing the same with the Supra. If it did, we might be forced to migrate to Mars to escape the crossover invasion.
