Toyota corolla/yaris/echo is now a Mazda 2
but their gt rallye model uses 1 1.6L L3

will Nissan follow suit, its has a 1.2 L3
and could do a Nismo Note with 300hp L3

Best L3 so far is the Rotax found in the sea-doo
70kg (wo water jet) all alloy 1.6L 300hp at 8000rpm
now if someone can convert it to use a
5 or 6 speed it would make a screamer
even rotary replacement.

Open in new window


Race versions making over 350hp NA from a 1.6!!

L3? at 1.6 liter that's 533cc/cylinder. Close to the "optimal" 500cc/cylinder the automakers have been talking up the past five years (and why we see so many 2-liter fours, 3-liter sixes, etc.)

Is that the G16E-GTS turbo engine in the GR Yaris?


That engine sounds way to good for USA ...



Right now on Toyota USA web siteQuote:
Both Yaris and Yaris Hatchback have been discontinued, making 2020 the last model year for each vehicle

Yep thats the engine in the lil Yaris beast
I always bagged Toyota for never ever doing
something different to the rest but at least
doing it well their way so this is refreshing.

3 cylinders seem optimal for low down torque
and have become the norm in Japan kei class
which is limited to 660cc. The 660cc L4s were
producing torque higher up, less economy,
higher production costs & packaging issues.

I would really like to have Rotax 1.6L in
a small datto, locost or my rx7.
Nissan has some nice L3 engines as well
like the HR series but not sure the HR16DE
is a 3 cylinder?!! 78mm bores could be L4

I love my Dattos but this thing is a "power out of corners BEAST"

i like your Gazoo Racing car ... and your fenceposts

is this the new Datsun 1200 GX? Smaller and lighter is better than bloated petrol-guzzling musclecars

To think Many Toyotas used Mazda hearts in the past
now Mazdas using Toyota hearts since the jz got
more love and now the mighty G is straight out a beast.

How times have changed from what was hot jp car then and now

just got informed by die hard Ford loving japanese mate
that Ford was first with the boosted L3 engines and toy
just followed suit cheekily using a once Ford owned
Mazda 2 base for their current hatches.
Ford focuses on torque though rather than power
and the Does 1.5 L3 Dragon makes more torque than many
V8s ever made from 1,600 to 4,000 rpm.

when 3 cylinder is too much not bad for 160hp
Be nice for a custom V4 bottom end.
