Introducing the new Toyota GR Yaris. It combines motorsport technology and design to the world of everyday driving.
Born from the success of the World Rally Championship, the GR Yaris is a unique model that benefits from the design and engineering skills of Toyota Gazoo Racing - following the footsteps of the GR Supra that was launched last year.
Every aspect of the car has a focus on performance: an all-new platform and 1.6-litre turbo engine, new suspension, lightweight construction, aerodynamic styling and a new GR-Four permanent all-wheel drive system. All is set to deliver an exhilarating performance as a super-hot hatch for the road.
The new GR Yaris will be positioned at the top of the all-new Yaris range. It will have a unique design from the rest with a three-door body and a 91mm lowered roof creating a coupe silhouette and improves the car’s ability to cut through the air.. The front grille design and spoiler express the models authentic GR status and will feature 18-inch alloy wheels.
The engine in the GR Yaris is an all-new, 1,618cc three-cylinder turbocharged unit with double overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. It features a single-scroll ball-bearing turbo and is equipped with motorsport technologies to maximise performance.
Take a look at the table below to view the GR Yaris technical specifications:
|Maximum speed||143 mph|
