at Geneva Toyota just debuted a new 1.2L I4 Turbo for the Auris

ike the one-litre, the 1.2T uses advanced technologies that allow it to change from the Otto to the Atkinson cycle when running under low loads, vertical vortex high tumble air flow intake ports, an exhaust manifold integrated in the cylinder head and advanced heat management measures.

The 1.2T adds direct injection and a water-cooled turbo and heat exchanger. The VVT-i intelligent variable valve timing system used on the one-litre is upgraded to a VVT-iW (Variable Valve Timing – intelligent Wide) system, which allows more valve timing flexibility.

The combination of these technologies results in claimed outstanding performance and efficiency. With a displacement of just 1,197cc, the engine delivers 114bhp (85kW) and constant torque of 185Nm between 1,500 and 4,000rpm. It will accelerate the updated Auris hatchback launched around it from rest to 62mph (100km/h) in 10.1 seconds. Acceleration from 50 to 75mph in fifth gear takes 13.7 seconds, and top speed is set at 124mph. All of this is achieved despite a focus on fuel economy and CO2 emissions: the car achieves 60.1mpg on the combined cycle and emits 109g/km of CO2.
So I wonder if the NA spec iM will make use of the new engine, or will that talk too many people out of Corollas...

With the kind of power and MPG it will get i sure hope we do get it, it'll be one of the best things that can happen to this vehicle.

For sure, but I have to wonder if the new 1.2T won't show up in NA corolla first...why should the scion get to debut the new tech while the money making Corolla languishes with the 'old stock'

Good point, even making it available in the new corolla would be a good move to make that volume product even stronger.

The more vehicles it's in the better,

plus last time i checked both the Auris and Corolla were on the same platform, with the Auris aka iM basically being a corolla wagon/hatch, so some technical things to do with that relation probably helps the integration of this engine in both
