Next Toyota Auris will likely rival the Golf GTI

Toyota is keeping a close eye at a GTI-rivaling hot hatch, likely to be the next Auris.

When we talk performance, we tend not to mention Toyota.

But that is set to change in no time since Toyota is keeping a close eye at a GTI-rivaling hot hatch, likely to be the next Auris.

Speaking to Toyota Australia’s vice-president of sales and marketing, Sean Hanley, Motoring Australia uncovered there’s a strong chance that a Gazoo Racing Auris variant, built on the rigid TGNA platform, will happen.

“I’d like to see it as soon as possible,” Hanley grinned, “in the next three years I wouldn’t rule out the possibility or probability of something coming under the Gazoo Racing brand”.

The third-generation Toyota Auris will arrive in South Africa in the second half of this year.
