New on next year’s model are stiffer mounts for the front suspension and rear shock absorbers, and new shocks in the back for better damping and less friction. Toyota says the result is sharper steering and less body roll. Inside, the instrument panel and center console get decorated with a “carbon-fiber motif.” There are new shades of pearl white and silver to dress up the outside, and the roof gets a shark-fin antenna for sharper looks and aero. It goes on sale this summer, and you can read everything we just told you in the press release below . We’ve reached out to Scion to see if we’ll get the same upgrades on the FR-S this summer, too, company PR rep Nancy Hubbell telling us, “The European changes are among those being considered for the US model FR-S and we’ll have final confirmation soon.” Continue reading Toyota updates Euro-market GT86 suspension, appearance Toyota updates Euro-market GT86 suspension, appearance originally appeared on Autoblog on Thu, 24 Apr 2014 09:31:00 EST.

Saving water = saving money. It’s a pretty basic equation about a very important commodity, and here are five ways you can help, with very little effort.
Filed under: Budget , Hybrid , Europe , Japan , Videos , Hatchback , Toyota , Diesel Toyota first launched the Yaris in 1999, though that model was sold in the North America as the Echo . The second generation arrived in 2005, replaced by the third in 2011. Sometime next year, Toyota is expected to roll out a new Yaris for North America, to be built in Mexico on the same platform as the next Mazda2 . But before that comes to pass, Toyota has introduced a mild facelift for the Yaris in markets other than ours. With styling cues borrowed from the new Aygo and the Yaris Hybrid-R concept, the new Yaris (for Europe) and Vitz (for Japan) are distinguished by updated styling front and rear. Though the European model bears a more aggressive look than the JDM version, both feature the new X motif that seems to be the new look for the whole family – particularly for small hatchbacks. The back end has also been revised to incorporate new LED taillights and a (faux) diffuser in the bumper. The cabin, meanwhile, has been redesigned to feel roomier and quieter with upgraded equipment. The suspension has also been refined, and in Europe at least, Toyota will continue to offer the Yaris with a choice of 1.0- or 1.3-liter gasoline engines, 1.4-liter diesel or hybrid powertrains. We’d tell you more about the varied specifications, but Toyota, in all its worldwide wisdom, oddly released one photo and a press release for the EU-spec Yaris, a whole mess of photos but no press release for the JDM-spec Vitz, but videos for both.

TORRANCE, Calif. (April 22, 2014) – Imagine lugging more than 1.9 million trash cans to the curb on trash day. That’s what Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. (TMS) has avoided doing over the last four years. Since 2009, Toyota has reduced or avoided 1.9 million trash cans worth of waste at its sales and logistics facilities across the country.
