Why Does Europe Get All the Fun Hot Hatches? - Supercharged Yaris Coming!

supercharge toyota yaris europe hot hatch

I have been a fan of "hot hatches" or "pocket rockets" - whatever you may call them - ever since the sub-category of cars was invented by the original VW Golf GTI, way back when! My own daily driver is not necessarily a hot hatch, but it's a 2012 Chevy Sonic LTZ, with a 1.4L turbocharged engine that's quite fun to drive - for my needs.

Someday I'm going to get myself a GTI, but I like to follow this genre of cars, as it puts fun-to-drive and not-too-expensive vehicles within reach of normal folks, like me. Not everyone has a superbly popular money-making YouTube channel chronicling their Lambo's and Corvettes -right?

I love this category, but I hate reading stuff like that, that a new supercharged Toyota Yaris - will be available only in Europe! Just like the Hyundai i30N I posted about last week - it too is destined only for the other side of the pond.

I've never driven a Yaris, supercharged or otherwise, but they look like they'd be fun to drive, especially the supercharged variant, which is supposed to have 205hp! Yowza!

Read more about this 205hp hot hatch over at AutoWeek:

He didn't get to drive it, but this is by far the best run-down of the new Vette's features I've seen so far!
