Toyota Yaris GR-4 specs

Toyota GR Yaris Officially Premiered

A few months ago, Toyota had planned to properly reveal the Yaris GR-4.  Due to unforeseen circumstances, they had to push that date back. As such, it made a January 2020 premiere at the Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan. Now we’ve finally got the performance details we’ve been lacking. Is it the hot hatch that we’ve all been hoping for? If Team Gazoo Racing’s intention of winning a WRC event is any indication, the GR Yaris will live up to that designation. Let’s take a look.

Here are the Toyota Yaris GR-4 specs. Read the rest of this entry >>

New Toyota Hot Hatch Details and Delay

Hatchbacks have always been popular. They’re a great balance of stylish and efficient. In fact, they’re so efficient that they’re often used for racing. The VW Golf R, the Ford Focus RS, the Audi S3, the Renault Clio RS, the Honda Civic Type R…all are recent examples of the fantastically popular hot hatches. And it seems that Toyota wants a piece of the pie. The Toyota Yaris has made a few attempts, like the Yaris SR and limited-run GRMN, but it hasn’t manufactured a full-production racing-centric hot hatch. Until now.

Here are the available Toyota Yaris GR-4 details. Read the rest of this entry >>

All-new 2020 Toyota Highlander Release Date

While nothing was confirmed until just a few short weeks ago, we’d had a feeling for a while that 2020 might be the year for an all-new Toyota Highlander. The initial Highlander came to us in the 2001 model year before getting redesigned 7 years later, and seven years after that the third generation kicked off, and now it has been another 7 years. Everything line up, we had to believe a new Highlander was coming… and we were right! It made its official world debut today at the New York International Auto Show and will have a release date of sometime this coming December – the Hybrid model following in January of 2020.

We’re so stoked to be able to say that a new Toyota Highlander will finally be gracing us for the 2020 model year!

But all that changed at the 2018 LA Auto Show when Toyota introduced the newest version of the world’s first hybrid vehicle.
