Toyota Wants Car Buying to Feel More Like Buying an IPad

Toyota Motor Corp. wants buying a car to feel more like ordering an iPad and less like the current four-hour ordeal.

The carmaker plans to expand a pilot program for its struggling, youth-targeted Scion brand that lets customers do everything short of sign for the keys before setting foot in a dealership. The names of its latest models, the iA sedan and iM five-door hatchback, have the familiar ring of Apple products.
