2016 Toyota Yaris TRD Sportivo Engine

As I discussed in the past, the Yaris TRD Sportiva didn't get any kind of drivetrain updates that we know of. Anticipate to see the exact same 3NR-FE 1.2-liter VVT-I, four-cylinder engine. It generates 84 horse power and 79 pound-feet of torque, which is sent out to the front wheels. Toyota hasn't given official efficiency numbers for the TRD Sportiva, but keeping that kind of output, do not expect it to go anywhere immediately-- despite having the fancy TRD body kit. It's unfavorable that TRD really did not place more initiative right into this design. It would have been interesting to see a 150 horse power Yaris. Oh well, it's not like it's pertaining to the United States anyway.
