    I haven't seen the car up close yet, but I believe the answer is yes. They likely put all of their mechanical parts including the TRD-developped engine from their old car in to the Dytko bodyshell.

    Edit: I just noticed that the Yaris has the same NZ numberplate as last year. So, is it a new Dytko bodyshell or just some aero updated parts?

Unless they receive a waiver, they need to find more than double the length of their 2018 stage mileage, which was composed of only four and half roads averaging 6kms in length, each used two or three times. Another waiver will be required for most of the stages to be run on tarmac. I actually believe the delay in announcing the calendar is due to the difficulties they have had in producing an acceptable itinerary.
    The video link is from 2017 when the rally was tarmac. 2018 (& 2019) was gravel.

    2018 looks like a mixed surface event. Regardless of surface, making an APRC itinerary will be a challenge!
