A legitimate contender to today’s crop of great hot hatches like the Ford Fiesta ST is coming from an unlikely automaker: Toyota.
Toyota has revealed its new Yaris hot hatch, packing three doors and more than 210 horsepower. The brand is also getting set to reveal its new Yaris WRC rally car, which serves as the inspiration for this new road-going hot Yaris.
Toyota will reveal the new hot Yaris at the Geneva Motor Show in March alongside the redesigned standard variant of the Yaris which has a new front fascia, a revised rear end and a fresh interior. Toyota also says that the Yaris will offer a more comfortable ride and better handling.
The Yaris Hybrid is being updated and made stronger, though few details were released.
Toyota hasn’t confirmed if the Yaris hot hatch will make it to the US.
