Toyota, Subaru to announce new model on 5-Apr – Toyota GR 86 or Toyo-baru SUV? 01

Toyota and Subaru have just announced that they will unveil a new co-developed model in Japan on 5-April 2021. What could it be? Since Toyota Gazoo Racing is mentioned in the joint statement, we are more inclined to believe that it refers to the Toyota GR 86.

Remember that although the Subaru BRZ has made its global debut in the US, the model has yet to be launched in Japan, and the Subaru BRZ’s twin the Toyota 86, which will be re-designated as the Toyota GR 86 in the same vein as GR Yaris, has yet to make its global debut.

The event will be graced Toyota Gazoo Racing’s chief Koji Sato and Subaru’s Managing Executive Officer, CTO (Chief Technology Officer) Tetsuro Fujinuki.

If it refers to the GR 86, then the latest development contradicts some media reports saying that the Toyota GR 86 has been delayed.

There’s also a small possibility that the event could refer to a new electric SUV that Toyota and Subaru are jointly developing, but what’s Gazoo Racing’s role in this project?

We will find out next month.
