V6 powered Toyota Blade

Not sure if you guys have seen this yet....

The Toyota Blade, luxury version of the Auris, saw a new element added to its lineup yesterday with the long awaited V6 version! Under the bonnet sits a 3.5 liter DOHC VVT-i V6 engine producing 280HP @ 6200rpm and 35.1kg-m @ 4700 rpm, this power being transmitted only to the front wheels (2WD / FF).

Even though many were expecting an All Wheel Drive version to support the extra power, Toyota decided to keep the Front Wheel Drive layout, as a result, many modifications were needed on the suspensions (specially tuned), brakes (16 inches diameter), 17 inches alloy wheels on 225/45R17 tyres and automatic 6 speeds gearbox.

The look of the Blade V6 was also modified with a slightly different front grille, logos here and there; leather steering wheel and shift knob, sporty and luxury interior (leather/alcantara)...

This new addition to the Blade line up is now available in Japan from 2.772.000 to 3.324.000 Yen, more news and detailled infos when we get our hands on it for a full review in the weeks to come!
