Toyota GR Yaris 09

However, we are getting more greedy and hope that all your features are met, including the new GR Yaris with a crazy powerful turbocharged three-cylinder engine, manual gearbox and all-wheel drive. So before participating Daytona 500We asked Toyota executives if they hope to see the ultra-small GR Yaris reach North America in any way. The first is a detailed explanation of "no," the crash test in the United States and North America is the harshest in the world, so it has not been recognized in the United States. "Said Bob Carter, executive vice president of North American sales of Toyota Motor. "That's why you see so few B [subdivision] platforms."

Then there was a silver lining: "But, stay tuned, we got the answer," Carter said. "It's we brought something else. I'll stay there. Join us for future events." Wait a minute. If we read his news correctly, it sounds like we will get the GR version of the existing vehicle, which is slightly larger Some and have reached safety standards. As we can see, there are two options. of Toyota C-HR Small crossovers will definitely use more power, although the GR C-HR looks to us like a medical billing code rather than reading more information to us like an exciting performance car. We love the idea of ​​the GR Compact Corolla, which comes with a hatch that can use the GR Yaris' three-cylinder engine and / or other GR wizards.

Toyota presented two GR Yaris at the venue 2019 Tokyo Motor Show.
