Iíd love to see the Yaris GR-4 come here. But I really donít think it would sell well. The real number of sales is a small fraction of petition signers.

Expensive AWD hot hatches are a hard sell ó just look at Golf R sales. Make one thatís even smaller in size and at best, that market will be split, not grow. How much profit would that be with a split market? Not much... Even at WRX/GTI pricing the size of a Yaris appeals only to us hardcore enthusiasts ó a smaller subset of that market.

A FWD GR Corolla is the best gamble in NA imo... against the GTI or Veloster N. and thatís also a tough feat. We might not even get that either.

I blame NAís love of excess... large, heavy, lifted overkill CUVs, not Toyota or any car manufacturer, tbh.
