Japan's latest hot hatch

Toyota has unveiled the Auris TRD at the Johannesburg International Motor Show in South Africa.

Designed to replace the SportX, the TRD has a sport-tuned suspension and an aerodynamic body kit with a front spoiler, extended side skirts and a faux diffuser.

Power comes from a supercharged 1.6-liter engine that develops 181 PS (133 kW / 178 hp) and 202 Nm (149 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 49 PS (36 kW / 48 hp) and 42 Nm (31 lb-ft).

There's no word on pricing, but the model will be launched in November.

Thanks for the tip Amith!

Instead of wasting time tuning this car, try to develop a special supercharger for the LFA.

In the Auris this sounds silly. BUT put this supercharged engine in the new Yaris along with some TRD interior and exterior styling and we'd have something worth talking about, and worth buying.

What's this? Toyota makes a hot hatch? Nah, that'd be too interesting.
