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

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?

UMW Toyota Motor has secured about 100 units of the World Rally Championship-bred Toyota GR Yaris. To recap, the B-segment Toyota GR Yaris is a road going version of Toyota Gazoo Racing’s World Rally Championsip (WRC) car – often called a homologation special. Despite using the Yaris name, the GR Yaris have few things in common with a Toyota Yaris. Globally, there are three variants of the regular Toyota Yaris.
