    My guess Toyota in their conservative way are testing the waters with the Gazoo Yaris - 1.8 litre supercharged engine. 400 editions to seed the market for a hot hatch yaris road car.
    The body is changing? for the 2019 Yaris so there is little point of doing R5 for one year of the current yaris?
    https://www.autoevolution.com/news/t...ct-119275.html

    So perhaps bigger volume of new model supercharged Yaris in 2019 and sprinkle them between Asia and Europe, then consider R5 model?

    NZ AP4 1600cc Yaris runs 2ZR engine destroked from 1.8 litres. Australian AP4 runs 2zz-ge engine.

    Already announced, that Toyota management want a Yaris performance version of the new car more closely tied to the WRC machine allowing them more flexibility for the WRC and hopefully R5 variants.

    So are there any changes to R5 rules in 2018 or not?

    I know paddle shift was cancelled but I haven’t seen FIA say anything else.

    No changes to the rules. I think 2020 is when you can make massive upgrades and changes.

    The rules will stay the same just that is the first window to make any upgrades without paying. Also no plans were made for a bigger restricor.
