Very hot Yaris on the way

It’s a Toyota Yaris, but not like you have ever seen one before, writes Brian Byrne.

With 210hp on tap, the car will debut at Geneva in March to target Ford’s Fiesta ST and VW’s Polo GTI.

The style and underpinnings will be related to the new Yaris 2017 WRC car.

How will they differentiate the name? The word is they may call it the Yaris Gazoo, reflecting the name of Toyota’s motorsport division.
