Looks like Toyota has gone the family type of cars...what happen to the sports car like Supra, Celica, MRS?
Toyota is a very dynamic company. They see one model no demand, they stop production. for example, why did they stopped production of Caldina and did not replace it with new one? cause basically demand is low.
same thing happened to the Cressida, Celica & MRS? market trends and demands keep changing according to time and one company has to continuosly adjust to be competitive.
Why did Honda suddenly got aggresive in the MPV segment in the mid 90s? cause they know there was high demand for people carrier since the succes of Toyota's Town Ace, Master Ace and Estima.
It is all about marketing strategy.
Just like Proton when the Tiara failed. They tried to improve with the Savvy but failed again. the Juara failed and Proton learnt quickly. They built up a super size MPV even though they dont have a matching powerplant to pull it.....
