Hello from Keith and Julia. We have test driven a black 1.2 manual Excel, and were very impressed, and will find this forum very useful I am sure.
We have two other Toyotas in our family, an IQ2 and a supercharged GT86.
Today ordered a hybrid Excel in, you guessed it, black. Almost bought metal stream but there were two new deliveries in that colour at the dealers, and we decided that, without the black roof, it was not quite as striking as the dynamic. So we do get a black roof in a round-about way! Delivery in March. Very excited!!
Whilst the dynamic is very striking, the blue insert seats seemed a downgrade on the part-leather supplied with the excel. We like the full leather in black, but to pay an extra £900 odd when we get part-leather as standard seemed a step too far. We also prefer the alloys on the Excel. And I'm not a fan of the blue strip in the dynamic dash, which is silver in the Excel.
We considered trading in the IQ but was offered so little that it was worth keeping!
Just got to sell our Legacy Spec B now..................
Welcome Super excited for you! My delivery can't come soon enough. The next few weeks are going to go so slowly lol.
I did go for the metal stream because I thought it was one of the only colours that pulled off not having a black roof! I do love how people react to this car so differently though. On my test drive a car next to us nearly crashed because he was staring at the CHR rather than the road.
Also, there were 2 metalstreams next to each other, one black roof and one without, and also a silver, which looked nice. Also another metalstream with leather, being used by the Director, and the two demonstrators, plus one in the showroom. Plus ours, that is 8 at the dealership. I enjoyed looking at them all, especially the black one! Needs the trims fitting that have not come through yet.
