Malaysia akan lancar model Toyota baru nanti – Toyota GR Yaris 2021 atau Toyota Vios GR Sport, mungkin?

UMW Toyota akan melancarkan satu model baru pada 17 Disember. Sudah menjadi kebiasaan promo acah pada fasa awalnya, maklumat terperinci belum didedahkan. Tapi, cara dan intonasi iklannya berbunyi agak ‘hip’, ditujukan kepada orang muda dengan gaya.Oleh itu, kita dah boleh jangkakan yang ia barangkali bukannya Toyota Fortuner mahupun Toyota Innova, walaupun kedua-dua model ini sudah patut menerima kemaskini, meniru penambahbaikan yang baru seperti Toyota Hilux yang berkongsi platform

Malaysia to launch new Toyota model soon – 2021 Toyota GR Yaris or Toyota Vios GR Sport maybe?

UMW Toyota will be launching a new model on 17-December. Typical of such pre-launch teasers, details are intentionally held back but the tone and manner of the communication suggests something youthful, emotional and sporty.So we can safely rule out cars like the Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Innova, both of which are also due for an update, following a similar refresh for the shared IMV-platform Toyota Hilux.Could it be the new updated Toyota Vios and Toyota Yaris then? Bookings are opened for bot

UMW Toyota Motor makes final call for last few units of Toyota GR Yaris

Just like everywhere else in the world, the Toyota GR Yaris has received heaps of praises even here in Malaysia. Only 25,000 units of this homologated special are being produced by Toyota with less than 200 units earmarked for Malaysia.To be specific, that number is 127 units, and honestly, that sounds generous enough, considering that Thailand had only 71 units allocated for them. It appears that as fast as the GR Yaris is in terms of performance, it’s also driving out of showrooms as qui

GR Yaris too expensive? Here's a cheaper, track-focused Toyota Yaris Cup Car

Over the past couple of weeks, the Toyota GR Yaris stole much of the Internet’s limelight and rightfully so. Brilliant car it may be, but with a price tag that hovers around the RM 300k mark, it’s not something for the average car buyer out there.Enter the Japan-only Toyota Yaris Cup Car. Yes, it may lack the GR badging like its 3-door sibling, but there’s still much to love about this up-and-coming race car.For starters, the little Yaris Cup Car is fitted, from the factory, wi

The smaller Toyota GR Yaris costs more than a Civic Type R

The Toyota GR Yaris is not a cheap car by any means, as it is priced from JPY 3.96 million (~RM 148k) to JPY 4.56 million (~RM 170k) in Japan.For comparison, in Japan, the C-segment FK8 Honda Civic Type R (GR Yaris is a B-segment hatchback) costs JPY 4.5 million (~RM 167k), while the made-in-France Renault Megane RS is priced at JPY 4.48 million (~RM 174k).  But there’s a good reason to as why the little GR Yaris costs so much, as shown in the video below.One of the biggest reasons wh

假想图:Perodua GR Axia——平价版GR Yaris

Toyota GR Yaris已经在大马上市,标价达到了惊人的RM 299k。这款小小的GR Yaris从来都不是我们所需要的,但是大家都爱它。对于那些梦想拥有一辆GR Yaris(但是买不起)的人,图片设计师Theophilus Chin为我们带来了这款Perodua GR Axia的渲染图。除了引擎缸数和轮子的数量之外,Toyota GR Yaris和Perodua Axia并没有太多共同点。Toyota GR Yaris的引擎能够在6,500转时爆发出261 PS的马力,并在3,000到4,600转爆发出360 Nm的扭力。它采用了全时四驱(AWD)系统,让动力达到高效的输出。原厂的Perodua Axia在6,000转时只能产生68 PS的马力,在4,400转只有91 Nm的扭力。不过,虽然Toyota GR Yaris有着Perodua Axia近四倍的马力和扭力,它的价格却是Axia的8倍多。但是我们没有理由把它们放在一起对比,因为它们的使用场景是不同的。如果Perodua Axia拥有与GR Yaris一样强劲的动力,它也会变得更宽、更低趴。这些渲染图确实让Axia看起来

But a Perodua Myvi though? Its something most Malaysians can afford, with the most expensive variant topping out at RM 52k.Unless several thousand Ringgit is poured into one, the Myvi isnt the closest thing to what one terms as a road-going rally car.
