Born from Toyota’s title-winning experience in the World Rally Championship, the all-new Toyota Yaris GR packs serious performance as a superb daily hot hatch. It shares the same name as the five-door Yaris road car, but this WRC derived edition is very much its unique entity.
Do not be fooled by the familiar Yaris moniker, this hot hatch shares four exterior body parts with the regular four-door hatchback and part of the C-HR/Corolla framework, resulting in a 95mm lower roofline. It also sports a carbon-fibre roof and is only available as a three-door.
The new Toyota Yaris GR prefers to lift trophies in style instead of just turning some heads. This three-door hatch radiates villainous vibes with its ominous headlights, multi-spoke 18-inch wheels, and massive fascia with a prominent black honeycomb grille.
Its compelling performance comes from the world’s most powerful 3-cylinder turbocharged engine, tuned up to respond on the track and thrill on the road. This powerplant produces a mighty 268hp at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 370Nm to all four wheels.
Aside from the 6-Speed Manual Transmission (IMT), this lightweight hot hatch runs on the newly-developed sports 4WD system dubbed ‘GR-FOUR’; making this Yaris GR truly a rally rocket for the road.
Experience quality style inside as the Yaris GR welcomes you in with supple synthetic leather seats and new interior trim designed for premium comfort. It exhibits dual LCD digital gauges, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and a 4.2 multi-information display.
Technology-wise, this hot hatch showcases class-leading technology such as a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia panel with Apple Carplay and Android Auto and an eight-speaker JBL sound system including digital radio and active noise control. It also comes with automatic climate control that enhances driving pleasure.
The new Yaris GR also features a myriad of safety equipment, including the Pre-Collision Safety System incorporating the Anti-lock Braking System and the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) that guarantees your safety in your every journey.
From its cracking three-cylinder engine to its sensational chassis balance, this new hot hatch on the market brings motorsport technology and design directly to the streets. Comfortable enough for your daily drives but stunningly good to drive fast as well, the new Toyota Yaris GR is the everyday pure performance car for you.
