2016 Toyota Mirai: View From the Back Seat

by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on July 5, 2016

2016 Toyota Mirai: Lexus Lite Interior

James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on May 17, 2016

2016 Toyota Mirai

If you're going to pay nearly $60,000 for a Toyota, it had better not have the interior of a $30,000 Prius. Thankfully, our long-term 2016 Toyota Mirai does not. Indeed, its cabin is what I would call "Lexus Lite," wherein it's a clear step above other Toyotas yet not quite to the level of the company's luxury division.

2016 Toyota Mirai: Not a Fan of the Seats

by Reese Counts, Vehicle Testing Assistant on April 28, 2016

2016 Toyota Mirai

In stark contrast to both Scott and Ed's opinions on the seats in our long-term 2016 Toyota Mirai, I am not a fan. It has nothing to do with the shape. It's everything else that I have problems with.

2016 Toyota Mirai: First Impressions

by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on April 18, 2016

2016 Toyota Mirai

Our new 2016 Toyota Mirai is a very different kind of car. It's not only driven by an electric motor, it uses a hydrogen fuel cell to generate the electricity. Yet as revolutionary as it is from a technology standpoint, it's still very much a traditional sedan once you're behind the wheel.

Santa Monica, Huntington Beach, Santa Monica, Playa del Rey, Burbank, Irvine, Costa Mesa and back to Santa Monica.

by Dan Edmunds, Director of Vehicle Testing on April 8, 2016

2016 Toyota Mirai

With sales starting late last year, the 2016 Toyota Mirai qualifies as the first fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle (FCHEV) available for public sale in North America. That's a big deal. The technology has been simmering in the background for a couple of decades, but Toyota has now reached the point where it feels comfortable selling it outright.
