I have had 3 100 series over the years and I currently have a 2014 200.
I will always regret selling my late 2007 100 series and buying the 200 I have now.
I know the 200 has a v8 engine and looks much nicer, but I loved the straight six engine and five speed box, I called it a plodder where as the v8 is a growler
If we are not getting any more 200's, then they need to fit a proper engine into the 150 such as the six pot out of the 100 series.

I believe the V8 4.5L TD LC200 is not available anywhere inside the EU. Some issue with EURO6 emissions CO2 g/km, NOx or particulate matter. The Toyota Europe main website last time I looked still offered the LC 200 V8TD but only for sale outside the EU. The Toyota Belgium office handles sales in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus where the LC200 is very popular and many other non EU territories. A big problem is that the EU limits the total sale of all Japanese cars to 10% of the EU market. Thus TMC faces the same EURO6 compliance costs but they must be spread over many fewer units. This of course allows far inferior EU brands free access to this market segment.
