Hi my name is***** am a diagnostic technician and look forward to working with you.The styling of many makes and models often differs between different markets, Toyota often have varied designs for different markets. Each country/continent has its own manufactures headquarters who input their requirements for their market. E.g the US Honda civic is generally sold as a saloon, where as here in the UK the hatch back was sold as their flagship variant with vary few saloon models sold, the same goes for the smaller details and designs. There are also physical requirements considered such as the number plates may be a different shape (square/rectangular) so the rear bumper or rear door will have a different design recess.Because the US Market is relatively very large, they have a much larger input to the point where different styling is use, this is simply done because they can, and they feel this is what the people of their country would prefer over the basic design put forward by the original designers.
