Default Toyota Yaris "T Sport" Concept @ 2006 Geneva Show

Toyota Yaris "T Sport" Concept @ 2006 Geneva Show



Quote:
YARIS T SPORT CONCEPT

Concept leading the way for production Yaris sports model in 2007

New 1.8-litre petrol engine

Extensive sports body styling features

17-inch alloy wheels

The Yaris T Sport is a design exercise that points towards a production sporting Yaris that is scheduled to arrive in showrooms during 2007, powered by a new 1.8-litre petrol engine.

The key reference point for Toyota’s development team was to create a refined sports hatch, compact in size with fun-to-drive qualities to appeal to younger buyers, but also with high equipment levels and comfort appropriate for both day-to-day driving and longer trips.

The sports styling is bold, with a black mesh grille at the front that adds emphasis to the deep bumper with integrated fog lights. There is a redesigned bumper at the rear, too, plus deep side skirts and a tail spoiler.

The T Sport is fitted with 17-inch wheels for sharper ride and handling, while new-look tail lights, a chromed exhaust pipe and a T Sport badge on the front grille add the finishing sports touches. The concept car is finished in a dedicated body colour, Storm Grey.

Any idea on horsepower for the 1.8? I checked this car out at the LA Auto Show and was very impressed, just not enough power.

Interesting design, just wondering where the rest of it is... The car looks taller than it is long or wide.

I don't think it's likely that it's the 2ZZ in the GT-S.
First it said it's a new engine and second that's way too powerful and expensive of a engine for a econo car like that. It could be a derivative of the 1ZZ which makes 140 hp & 125 ft-lbs in the Celica GT and 130 hp & 125 ft-lbs in the Corolla.
The previous Yaris T Sport (Vitz RS for the GT4 fans) only has a 1.5L engine that puts out 108 hp. The new Yaris only weights in at 2300-2400 lbs so the 140 hp version would be more than enough for a econo hot hatch.

That is pretty cool looking.

I agree that it will probably be powered by the 1ZZ (which is built about 200 ft to the left of me ). I'll definitly check this out. It looks like it would be a cool little commuter and I could convince the finacee that this practical car would be perfectly complimented w/ an e30 M3.
