Guangzhou-Toyota Yaris China

Toyota makes the Yaris in China under a joint venture with Guangzhou Auto. The old one didn’t sell well so Toyota brought in a new car. The Yaris got a new front, some small changes at the back and a new dashboard. Engine-wise no changes: 1.3 with 86hp and a 1.6 with 118.

Toyota did however surprise with the 1.6 GS, pictured, a sporty Yaris, yeah, bring it to me now. The 1.6 GS got a full bodykit and a huge spoiler at the back for downforce. Unfortunately the GS has the same power as the normal 1.6E so it will be slower due to the extra weight of plastic.
