Toyota Car Exporters in Japan
The Tokyo Auto Salon continues as Toyota has taken the wraps off the Vitz RS G Sports concept.
Looking instantly recognizable, the concept has a sport-tuned suspension, beefier brakes and 17-inch aluminum wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE050 tires. The model also has side stripes and a larger rear spoiler.
Interior changes are limited but include sports seats, revised trim and updated instrumentation.Interior pictures haven't been released, but Toyota says they have made significant improvements to the cabin. Notable changes include improved seats, higher quality materials, and premium options such as HDD navigation.
Overall, the car measures 3,885mm long and rides a wheelbase that has been stretched by 50mm.
Under the hood, three petrol engines will be offered: a 68 hp (51 kW /69 PS) 1.0-liter, a 93 hp (69 kW / 94 PS) 1.3-liter, and a 107 hp (80 kW / 108 PS) 1.5-liter. Detailed specifications haven't been released, but the 1.3-liter features Dual VVT-i (Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent) and stop/start technology which enables it to get a class-leading fuel economy rating of 3.8 L/100km (62 mpg US). A continuously variable transmission (CVT) will be standard on most models (in Japan), but a five-speed manual is also available.
