The Japanese automaker rolled out the rear-drive hero with a fancy new video shot in the hills around Fujairah. With plenty of drifting , tire smoke and slow motion, the clip serves as a proper introduction to the lightweight coupe. Judging by the quick video, there are a few market-specific changes to the UAE Toyota GT 86, including the availability of one very massive rear wing. The piece has more than a passing resemblance to the exaggerated aero work found on the lusty Subaru WRX STI sedan. Will the Toyota GT 86 find favor in the UAE? We certainly think it’s got a shot. If there’s a more car-obsessed culture on this planet than the one found in the U.S., it lies in the well-funded Middle East. You can check out the launch video for yourself by scrolling below , or head over to the Toyota UAE Facebook page for a little more information.

Filed under: Car Buying , SUV , Marketing/Advertising , Lexus , Toyota , Luxury A new Lexus LX 570 is going to set you back nearly $82k after you add $875 delivery to its $80,930 base price. The luxury version of the Toyota Land Cruiser wears a new Lexus spindle grille , one that’s big enough to make Rumplestiltskin proud, and it has revised front and rear fascias among the other upgrades that Lexus says justify its 1.9-percent price increase. Among the other new-for-2013 features are an updated Crawl Control mode and terrain-select for the all-wheel-drive system, because what Lexus owner doesn’t enjoy serious rock-crawling? A new multimedia system with the next-generation Lexus Enform system is also part of the deal, which seems much more in line with real-world customer behavior, as Enform allows drivers to use Facebook and Yelp, among other services. For those LX 570 buyers who just must have it all, there’s also a $1,510 luxury package that adds some higher grade trim and features, and a backseat entertainment system for $2,005.

This once-overlooked segment of vehicles has been booming lately, what with recent additions like the Ford Fiesta and Mazda2 , not to mention soon-to-be-released models like the Chevrolet Sonic , Nissan Versa , Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio . Toyota is a player in this segment, but the Yaris , isn’t exactly aging too well, but a brand new version is just around the corner. That is, if these photos from a Hungarian Toyota dealership’s Facebook page are anything to go on. This stylish new Yaris looks to be the end result of what renderings and spy shots have foretold, though it’s still unclear whether or not this is indeed the car that will be sold here in the United States – this could simply be the Euro-market Yaris. Either way, if this new hatchback is destined for consumption here in the States, we’ll likely hear about it within the coming months. Are you the new Toyota Yaris? originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 15 Jun 2011 15:57:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds . Permalink
