The sketch reveals that the high-performance Yaris will sport a large roof mounted rear spoiler, larger wheels and a more aggressive front fascia. There’s no word yet on what will power it, but a turbocharged four-cylinder with around 200 horsepower is a likely bet. The four-cylinder will also most likely send its power to the ground via a six-speed manual transmission.

The high-performance Yaris will debut in March at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, but there’s no word yet if it will be offered in the U.S.
