Toyota Worlds Top Seller 3 consecutive year!

Toyota Motor Corp. warded off Volkswagen and General Motors to remain the world’s top-selling auto-maker for a third consecutive year, driven by record U.S. deliveries of its SUVs, according to the 2014 tally.

High demand for SUVs such as the RAV4 and the mid-sized Highlander have pushed Toyota ahead of its competition again and again.

Toyota reportedly planning a Hothatch

Toyota is reportedly making a Hothatch, after Toyota’s announcement to return to the World Rally Championship in 2017, which will spawn a road going version of its Yaris which is going to be used in the rally.

Reports are that the Yaris will be powered by a four-cylinder, 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine which produces a staggering 235bhp; all of this power will be channelled through the front wheels.

With the Yaris being a very light vehicle, with its reported 235bhp powerhouse engine it is set to be an incredibly fast pocket-rocket!
