2009 Tokyo Motor Show – Toyota Sai

Enhanced safety equipment

Advanced technologies including a Pre-crash Safety System (featuring millimeter-wave radar) to counter both front and rear collisions as
well as seven Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags – standard on all models – and optional rear seat SRS side airbags pursue safety
performance at the highest levels.

“Multi-color sophistication”

Simple, modern interior and exterior designs integrate and refine functional beauty and style
Exterior

The unique exterior, based on the Toyota-brand “Vibrant Clarity” design philosophy, creates a triangular silhouette – a first
for a Toyota-brand sedan – that features outstanding aerodynamic performance as well as prominent innovation and styling.

Enhanced aerodynamic performance

Through use of aero-management, the vehicle’s underbody has underfloor covers across large sections to create
smoothness, achieving a coefficient drag value of 0.27 – among the highest in its class(4).

Interior

The cockpit layout is driver-focused and provides outstanding visibility and operability, while the interior conveys modernity
and quality with an unassuming and consistent beauty, including a slim and flowing center cluster characterized by advanced functionality.

Comfort-enhancing features

A Power Easy Access System that supports the driver’s ingress and egress and other comfort-enhancing features befit such a luxury vehicle.

Newly developed fabric seat covers (in plum and gray) combine vibrant elegance with a silken textural quality. The driver and passenger
seats also have functions that help prevent static electricity build-up and eliminate odors. For optimum comfort, automatically controlled
leather heated seats, in plum, are also available.

Storage spaces, including an illuminated and lockable glove compartment, overhead console, and bottle holders, are positioned for optimal
convenience.

An HDD navigation system with 8-inch pop-up display comes standard on all models. All 10 speakers of the Super Live Sound System (excluding
the tweeters) contain bamboo fiber – a material with minimal environmental impact – for clear sound reproduction.

Fully automatic air conditioning (with a pollen removal mode) that allows the temperature to be set independently for the driver and passenger
side is standard on all models. A temperature adjustment switch is also located on the passenger-side door trim.

Plasmacluster Ions(R)(5) releases a balance of positive and negative ions into the cabin, helping reduce the propagation of airborne
germs and impurities, thus aiding the creation of a stress-free cabin environment.

Hybrid-specific features

The color, Hybrid Synergy Blue, which identifies TMC’s hybrid vehicles and their advanced nature, is used on the vehicle’s emblems, headlights,
combination taillights, gauge display, shift knob and power switches.
