Live the quasi-minivan life with the Toyota Tj Cruiser SUV concept

It's the SUV that embodies the best of what minivans have to offer. It's a perfect mix.

The Toyota Tj Cruiser concept blends vans and SUVs in a new and interesting way.

It packs the utility of a minivan with the body of an SUV.

 The fenders are chunky like an SUV, but the "seamless" window design reminds me more of a van.

Were this to be produced, the Tj Cruiser would likely ride on the same Toyota New Global Architecture platform that underpins new Toyota models like the C-HR and Camry.

 According to Toyota, it could be had with either front- or four-wheel drive, and forward motion would come from a hybrid system with a 2.0-liter gas engine.

The rear hatch opens wide while minivan-style sliding doors hang out on both sides, giving the driver a whole bunch of open space for easy cargo access.

The interior is like the inside of a box.

There are tie-downs all over the darn place.

Every seat except the driver's can stow flat in the floor, so you can slide items up to 10 feet long into the car.

I wouldn't be surprised if something similar to this ended up coming to production, perhaps as a replacement for the Sienna minivan.
