Petition to Toyota Canada for the Turbo!

Hey everybody! By now, I'm sure you've all read about the new Yaris Turbo that Toyota Japan recently released, and plans to start selling in Japan. One site hinted at the possibility of a European model.

I'm asking for your help in convincing Toyota Canada to bring the turbo here. I'm sure there will be some naysayers out there who will flame me and say that they'll never bring it to North America. But c'mon... Toyota brought the Gen 1 yaris HB to Canada (not the States), and Canada was the 2nd country (only after Japan) to get the new Yaris hatchback! I just popped onto Toyota Canada's website, clicked on the Contact Us page, and filled out their little form saying that I wanted to formally register interest in bringing the car to Canada.

As a service to one of your fellow YW'ites, would you please write a quick note to Toyota Canada saying that you'd *love* to have this car here!

Thanks very much!

Heard back from Toyota:

Thank you for your recent correspondence. Currently, there are no plans to add the Yaris Turbo to the Toyota Canada line-up. ... <cut text> ...

However, your interest in the Yaris Turbo has been noted and forwarded to our Product Planning department for their information and future consideration.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.


Yay! +1 to the petition list. C'mon people!!

what we have now is the european spec (in canada anyways). other countries in europe got the car way before us.

Yes yes, I know that the Echo was called the Yaris in Europe and other parts of the world. I was talking about the new Yaris... the Mk 2. And yes, Canada was the 2nd country after Japan to get it. It was released in Japan in April 2005, and then Canada in September. Europe started to receive them at the end of 2005.

From the Toyota Canada press release re: the new Yaris:


Canadian car buyers will get to experience the new Yaris in advance of drivers in both Europe and the United States when it goes on sale here this fall, taking the place of best-selling Echo Hatchback. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
