The Toyota TJ Cruiser is an odd-looking thing. Its polarizing exterior—composed of hard lines, bulky proportions, and a ridiculously oversized face and grille—is going to be a point of debate for many of those who manage to see it in the metal at the Philippine International Motor Show 2018 (PIMS).

Thankfully, there are a few design cues we’re sure everyone can get behind. The futuristic headlights look neat, as do the vehicle’s massive seven-spoke wheels.

Our favorite bit about the TJ Cruiser, though, is its interior. The vehicle is described by the Japanese carmaker as a mix between a van and SUV, and nowhere is this quality more apparent than inside the cabin. The amount of space inside is reminiscent of the now-discontinued FJ Cruiser’s cabin, but slide a few seats around (or remove them completely), and you’re looking at a utilitarian’s dream ride.

Other cool bits? The gauges and the information display are digital and integrated into the car’s dashboard as a single elongated panel, and the chunky steering wheel looks like it’d be a joy to grip.

Still, this concept is carried by the sheer amount of space its interior provides. As Will Ferrel’s Brennan Huff from Step Brothers would say: “So much room for activities!” What would you do with all this room? And again, you can check out the TJ Cruiser at PIMS 2018.
