Toyota Working on RWD Hatchback Model
Supposedly, it's a rear-wheel drive hatchback model that will be marketed below the existing GT 86. So a Scion in America?
We don't know quite yet, but the same report suggests the car will be a remained version of the Rush crossover, the one shown in the picture above, but it will have independent suspension on all corners and a lower ride height.
Power will reportedly come from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 150 HP (hopefully turbocharged). Expect the debut of this new Rush o take place in 2016.
Since it's going to be even cheaper than a Scion FR-S at about $20,000, the RWD hatch will definitely appeal to younger keen drivers who at this moment don't have access to such cars.
