Talk:Toyota Paseo

It was not necissary to remove the original picture of the 1991 Cynos and replace it. This original picture was a closer representation of a ‘stock’ Paseo/Cynos, and is a ‘prettier’ picture. Also, in the future use the ‘Show preview’ button before saving changes.

Excessive External Links [ edit ]

This page contains too many external links. Most all serving the same purpose, to advertise an external online club for the Toyota Paseo. I’m going to remove the links if there is no objections.Mikeshoup (talk )

I don’t see any inconvenient on wikipedia having various url to Toyota Paseo Club pages. I know than wikipedia isn’t a webpage directory, but for people looking for more information, these pages could be useful.–Sucoplus (talk ) 09:14, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Marketing relation to Corolla [ edit ]

I’ve removed the phrase It replaced the Toyota Corolla coupe and hatchback., since that’s definitely wrong. Maybe Cynos/Paseo had replaced Corolla coupe/hatch on SOME markets, but stating that without any qualification is wrong. Corolla coupe is Levin (and Sprinter Trueno), which outlived Cynos/Paseo for 1.5 years, and Corolla hatch was just Corolla in Europe and Corolla FX/Runx/Allex in Japan, currently Auris worldwide.

Regarding platform [ edit ]

The loosely based on the Toyota Tercel is misguiding: Cynos/Paseo IS a coupe version of Tercel/Corsa, and it uses exactly the same Tercel/Corsa/CorollaII L platform. Yes, all body panels are different — that’s usual case for all coupes, but drivertain and suspensions are identical. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bolkhov (talk • contribs ) 10:38, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Convertible Cynos [ edit ]

Does anybody know when the Convertible Cynos started production? I have a brochure from the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show that lists the ‘Convertible Cynos’ as a 2+2 ‘special exhibition vehicle’ with a hand operated fabric top and 5E-FHE engine. Is this show vehicle a concept car that was made into a real production car a few years later or was the show vehicle a pre-production showing? #160;Stepho#160; #160;(talk ) 03:51, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

I looked through some old issues of German Auto Katalog, and according to the 1998 issue it was introduced (for the German market at least) in spring 1997 and was built by ASC in California. I could provide a scan, but mine is a Swedish language edition so I don’t know if it would make any difference. #160;⊂|#160;Mr.choppers#160;|⊃#160; #160;(talk ) 17:11, 15 April 2011 (UTC) That would be the Paseo though, I don’t know that there ever was a Convertible Cynos. #160;⊂|#160;Mr.choppers#160;|⊃#160; #160;(talk ) 17:11, 15 April 2011 (UTC) Spoke too soon.

The Japanese Wikipedia page states that the Cynos Convertible was introduced in August 1996. This site claims September, which may have been the on-sale date. #160;⊂|#160;Mr.choppers#160;|⊃#160; #160;(talk ) 17:17, 15 April 2011 (UTC) Doh! I didn’t think to check the Japanese WP. Good find on the other website too.

Swedish catalogues are fine – my day job is writing software destined for Sweden, so translation is no problem. Here is the Tokyo Motor Show brochure I have (in English): http://members.iinet.net.au/

stepho/brochures/Tokyo%20Motor%20Show/1995%20press%20information/Special%20exhibition%20vehicles.pdf. I will treat it as a pre poduction model and add it to the article. Thanks. #160;Stepho#160; #160;(talk ) 23:11, 15 April 2011 (UTC) ja.wp usually has really bad inline citations, but their references are usually useful. #160;⊂|#160;Mr.choppers#160;|⊃#160; #160;(talk ) 05:18, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Front or Rear Drive? [ edit ]

Why doesn’t this mention if it’s front or rear drive? Could someone please fix this?WertMooMoo (talk ) 09:25, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

The infobox already said it was FF layout, which means Front engine, Front wheel drive. But since this is jargon, I changed it to Front-engine, front-wheel-drive layout . #160;Stepho#160; #160; talk #160; 11:39, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
