A 257-hp Toyota Yaris is Coming, But Not to North America

Toyota has unveiled the GR version of its Yaris for 2020

The Yaris that’s sold in North American Toyota dealerships is actually a Mazda2. That's been the case with the sedan version for a few years now, and for 2020, it's also the reality with the 5-door package.

So it is that the new generation of the Yaris made by Toyota is sold elsewhere on the planet, but not here. The company’s stance is understandable, in that it’s all a question of cost. And with the segment it competes shrinking by the month in Canada and in the U.S., there’s no reason for Toyota to change its strategy.

Of course, that doesn't prevent us from feeling a twinge of excitement and a tweak of frustration when we see Toyota unveil the new GR version of the Yaris, a little tick of a car that gets 257 big horses from its 1.6L, 3-cylinder turbocharged engine. Yes, 257 hp for a 3-cylinder. Don't look for precedents, this represents a record output for an engine with this displacement.
