Toyota is one of the few manufacturers that does not have compact or utility of sports aspirations. The japanese manufacturer has the top of his sportsmanship in the bright GT 86, but it is a coupe niche of 200 CV of power that just sold in our market. A true return to the good sportsmanship of yore passes by the launch of a sport-utility. And it seems that at Toyota they have heard, because a Yaris sport is on its way and could arrive in 2017.
apparently has been TMG (Toyota Motorsport Group) that has been pressed in the matrix to launch a sports product, based on the Yaris. A machine that even we don’t even know your name final, but that would be around 200 HP of power. A torpedo that would be directly pointed to the line of flotation of the Ford Fiesta ST and the SEAT Ibiza Cupra, because of price and positioning, according to recent reports point to. it Is still unknown that propellant would use this may Yaris high performance.
not even mention the 2.0 Boxer D-4S GT 86 because it would be impossible in an architecture of front-wheel drive. Rather I am inclined by a 1.6 turbo, new bill. An engine in which TMG would have a lot to say after their developments to the world rally championship. A propeller that would end up finishing in versions decaffeinated in much of the range of Toyota, from compact to sedans going by the SUV. A gear train optimized, it is assumed, as well as big brakes and a manual gearbox of six marches.
Is expected to debut by the end of 2016 at some auto show, but before we need more details and more confirmations. The waiting has done no more than begin.
