The V8 petrol 200 has been removed from sale in Australia but is still for sale in the ME and USA.

There are internet rumours that the V8 diesel will be replaced by a V6 or hybrid or V6 Petrol hybrid in 2022 or 2023. There are also rumours that the V8 diesel will get euro 6 and keep on.

Toyota has not confirmed anything other than no V8 petrol for the 200 as of July 1.

It's all click bait,

V8 petrols are being removed from the 200 series, no news that isn’t speculation about the v8 diesel.
