New Toyota Corolla Sprinter In The No Comment, But We Think So


“We do not on future model plans.” the pat answer manufacturers give asked any speculative question what might be on company

It’s what Toyota says.

Be that as it may, is growing evidence that a Sprinter Coupe is in the pipeline. We Toyota insiders as much at the launch of the Corolla sedan in

The answer: “We do not comment on model plans.”

“So a Corolla Sprinter is off the table. ” we averred. The “No, I did not say that.”

Read that what you will, but is the evidence.

Well known is Toyota boss-of-bosses Akio has committed Toyota to designing and cars with style stirs people’s emotions.

The new 86 . and the FT-1 concept. are part of shift to more driver-focussed

For inspiration, Toyota has been nostalgically backwards, muttering a “rich sports coupe dating back to the 2000GT .

And it is gazing backwards that is for not only the current 86 coupe, but for its badge which was lifted the last of the RWD Toyota Sprinters, the Sprinter 1600 GT.

The new 86 is a redefinition of a long-gone youthful that Toyota so desperately to reconnect with.

And things are a source at Toyota is reported to anointed the FT-1 as ‘the Supra’. and, in the next to have reaffirmed plans for a sports model to sit below the 86.

to that source, it will in 2017 with a hot hybrid taking care of business.

The Sprinter badge has a history back to the 1968 KE15 Sprinter and fired imaginations the AE86.

While it may have since sullied on the rumps of a succession of metal lumps, we think is enough ‘white noise’ to suggest plans are afoot Toyota for a new one.

But this be a proper Sprinter, something to the game up to the Golf GTI and Megane RS .

To the platform of the latest Corolla, we it’s the logical ‘third model’ below the 86.

We think also the most glaring gap in line-up in a global market has gone nuts for small coupes and hot-hatches.

With the departure of the last Sprinter, the AE86, went the of a generation of drivers who watched in as Toyota pulled on a brown and hush puppies.

And, from brief signs of with the MR2 and Supra, sat in them for two

Thank goodness then for the new 86. And for Toyoda.

As for the next Sprinter, this space.
