Toyota's Senior Vice President for Automotive Operations Bob Carter says the Japanese automaker, which has long been known for safety, reliability and value, wants to inject a little emotion into its new designs and make cars that 'are fun to drive' and have 'a little more sizzle.'

Separately, Carter says the weaker Yen will only have a small impact on margins since 70% of Toyota's cars for the U.S. market are produced in North America. TheStreet's Ruben Ramirez reports from Detroit.
