At Tokyo Auto Salon 2012, Toyota introduced a turbocharged version of the popular Vitz (Yaris) . While the car on exhibit may be a one-off, Toyota is reportedly planning to shift its focus to downsized, turbocharged, direct-injection engines rather than focusing only on gas-electric hybrid technology.
Toyota is expecting to carry out a rapid development program that can potentially make its way into multiple small and midsize products within the next couple of years.
Sources believe that the next-generation Toyota Corolla is likely the first all-new North American model to receive a direct-injection turbocharged engine.
More details will come up soon so stay tuned as we will keep you posted .
