Toyota GA-B platform unveiled, likely to underpin new Yaris
Toyota has unveiled its new GA-B platform, the latest to be spun off from the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA).
GA-B will be used for vehicles smaller than those current residing on the existing GA-C platform, such as the C-HR, Corolla, and Prius.
This fact, combined with the timing of the announcement just ahead of the 2019 Frankfurt motor show, indicates the GA-B platform will be used by the new Yaris.
Toyota has unveiled the new Corolla Sedan at Auto Guangzhou in China, ahead of its arrival in Australian showrooms "more than a year" later.
Underpinned by the same Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) as the hatchback, the car will be offered with "many of the features and technology of the hatch" launched locally in August.
The new-generation Toyota Auris wagon has been spied by photographers during development testing, ahead of a potential reveal later this year.
Based on the European version of the Corolla, known there as the Auris, the wagon looks very much like a stretched version of the hatchback. The current version is officially dubbed the 'Auris Touring Sports'.
The next-generation Toyota RAV4 has been previewed again, ahead of a full reveal at the New York motor show this week.
A short video clip posted on the company's Twitter profile shows part of the new model's front grille and headlight design, which is no doubt heavily based on the design of the FT-AC concept revealed at the Los Angeles motor show last December.
The next-gen Toyota RAV4 has been snapped for the first time, providing a fleeting glimpse at what will likely be a chunkier and more rugged-looking design for the popular mid-sized SUV.
Heavy camouflage makes it tricky to discern styling specifics, but the bluff nose and gaping grille are more in keeping with the Tundra and Tacoma pickups than the current RAV4.
