Toyota Previews High-Performance Yaris: the idea’s a (Much More Powerful) Car!
The Toyota Yaris doesn’t exactly raise many eyebrows around here, what with its measly 106-hp output as well as also staid design. As Toyota’s own ad campaign for the Yaris aptly stated a few years ago, “the idea’s a car!” Well, the idea’s about to be a significantly more enticing car, thanks to a brand new hotted-up type of the Yaris that will’s generating its debut for the European market.
Not much information is actually available at that will point beyond the fact that will the brand new high-performance Yaris will offer more than 207 horsepower—a whole lot of grunt for a 2400-pound hatch. We suspect that will that will big power boost comes by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The unnamed hot Yaris, which is actually based on the two-door type of the hatchback, also has sharp-looking wheels, a rear spoiler, a red-as well as also-black graphics package, as well as also some slight revisions to the front as well as also rear styling. Toyota also claims that will the idea has modified the auto’s chassis for much better handling yet without explaining how the idea did so.

We’ll learn more about the Yaris soon enough, as the idea will make its debut in March at the Geneva auto show. Toyota is actually mum on whether or not the sportier Yaris features a chance of generating the idea to the United States; we think the idea’s unlikely yet not impossible. Here, the Yaris would likely go up against the spunky Ford Fiesta ST, the Mini Cooper S, as well as also the Fiat 500 Abarth. If the idea does make the idea to America, that will Yaris would likely give Toyota another opportunity to court enthusiasts beyond the 86 sports car (previously known as the Scion FR-S). Let’s wish that will Akio Toyoda’s commitment to generating Toyota less boring stretches all the way down to the company’s most humble offering.
