Sadly, we already know the GR Yaris isn't coming to the US. We're getting a GR Corolla instead.

I donít know of any GR 86 that was sold here. And I wasnít referring to what Toyota is calling the 2nd gen 86. Maybe it will have a similar approach as the GR Yaris and have a bunch of upgrades/unique parts. Does anyone really think that will happen? I donít care what the hell they call it if itís an actual attempt at making the car better. I was probably a little too harsh about the 86 TRD. It does have some nice performance upgrades, and some purely cosmetic stuff. I just know that Toyota is capable of so much more, if they cared enough.

My gut tells me they are going to also put the GR label on the 86, without any real upgrades over the standard car. The GR Yaris is very different than the base platform. I donít know as much about the GR Corolla. Itís a really good starting point that could be a very capable performer. It would be nice to see a Corolla that could compete with at least the Civic Si. Is that too much to ask? I know a Civic Type R competitor is out of the question.

I think the standard car will be called the GR 86, just as the standard Supra is a GR Supra. The GR Yaris being a hipo special is a bit different, as there is a standard Yaris too. With the 86 and Supra, they market the whole range as being ‘GR’ now.

If they do a special souped up version of the new GR 86 it may be a ‘GRMN’ but I would not expect any more power. Probably be another ‘handling’ upgrade so suspension, brakes and tyres.

Did someone say THREE CYLINDERS. Don't look whilst I look away and chuckle.


Does it have a balance shaft ? Does it have an unlimited miles/years warranty ?

3 cylinder engines have been around for awhile. Much more prevalent in motorcycles but becoming a lot more common in cars these days

And once upon a time cars were not allowed in cities, the speed limit was 5MPH and you had to have a person with a flag and whistle walk in front of your car.
To say they were banned in today's context is not accurate.

Canada does not have and to the best of my knowledge never had these rules. We have had auto dimming headlights for years, there have been the turning ones since at least 2015. They are not in any way "banned".
