A new age of automotive excitement is set to inspire motorists, with the arrival of the new Toyota GR Yaris the first real performance car developed by the manufacturer at its new Gazoo Racing headquarters. Unveiled at the recent Tokyo Auto Salon, this breathtaking new model has been inspired by and developed from the World Rally Championship, incorporating incredible power and responsive handling like nothing that has gone before.
Power and athleticism are evident with just a single look at the new GR Yaris. This three-door powerhouse features a distinctive front grille and 18-inch alloy wheels, all complemented by a capable four-wheel drive chassis that offers the ultimate driving experience. Plus, there’s a lowered roofline which evokes the appearance of slick coupé, resulting in an overall aesthetic that will impress everyone.
At the heart of the new GR Yaris is a powerful 257bhp, 1.6-litre turbocharged engine. Combining with a power-to-weight ratio of 5kg per bhp, you can anticipate a driving experience you won’t forget, racing from 0-62mph in less than 5.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 143mph. With the engine situated further towards the centre of the vehicle and with the battery set in the boot, the overall distribution of weight has been carefully considered to ensure you get the very best in stability and responsiveness.
Packed with engaging technology and with premium sports materials used to create an environment that epitomises comfort, the new Toyota GR Yaris is every inch the heart racing performer.
