Top managers of the Toyota concern told that a “hot” version of Yaris will be available by 2017. Now the engineers of the Japanese auto giant are currently working on the creation of this model.
The “hot” version of Toyota Yaris will be equipped with two-liter four-cylinder engine with a return of 235 HP and 349 Nm. The same power train now comes with premium Lexus NX 200t from a premium division of the Japanese company. In combination with Toyota Tacoma headlight assembly and the engine there also is six-speed manual transmission.
Most likely, the “charged” Yaris is a front-wheel drive. Let’s remember, that Toyota Yaris subcompact has been producing since 1999. Now on the market there are already the third generation of the model. The last update of the compact occurred last spring.
Let’s note that recently the experts of the international Insurance Institute for highway safety named the Toyota Yaris the most unsafe car in the world – this model accounts more than 28 insurance claims per thousand insured years.
