The "car sales ranking" that has repeatedly become a topic of discussion in reports does not refer to the specific sales of a single car model, but the sales of a series. It also includes derivative models.
However, "No. 1 sales in ○○!" is quite powerful publicity for car manufacturers, and it is also better for consumers to imagine what kind of car it is, so there are more and more such cases.

It can be called the ultimate version of GR Yaris. Since the third-generation Vitz GRMN has launched a 1.5L turbo GRMN turbo and a 1.8L supercharger GRMN, it is speculated that it may launch a second bomb.
