Toyota is set to unveil its new Yaris-based hybrid SUV crossover at the 2020 Geneva motor show in March.
The new B-SUV will be built on the TNGA-B platform used for the Yaris and GR Yaris, and as such is likely to utilise the former's hybrid powertrain.
That means it should receive the 1.5-litre engine and hybrid system used in the Yaris, rather than the 1.8-litre engine found in the 2020 C-HR Koba Hybrid.
