2012 Beijing: Toyota Dear Qin concepts hint at new compact models

Toyota today unveiled to new concept at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Known as the Dear Qin Concepts, the studies show a compact sedan and a compact hatchback that will enter production in 2013. The two models will be sold globally with a focus on China.

Toyota didn’t provide any details on powertrain offerings but the company has previously announced that it is working on a global architecture that would be used on three front-wheel-drive vehicles.

We’re really hoping these two aren’t going to be about hybrids and fuel-economy.
