Developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing in partnership with Tommi Mäkinen Racing, the GR Yaris is the performance flagship of the all-new Yaris range. Powered by a 261 DIN hp 1.6-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine it is expected to offer 0-100 km/h acceleration in less than 5.5 seconds. Its performance, lightweight construction, dynamic balance and new GR-FOUR intelligent all-wheel drive system are key to its role as the road-going basis of a future Toyota World Rally Championship competition car.
Depending on local strategy, the GR Yaris will be launched in a single, high-specification grade, but customers will be able choose from two option packs – Circuit and Convenience – to tailor their car for focused, high-speed driving or more comfort-oriented road performance. Details of equipment features will be announced at a later date.
Toyota has confirmed launch prices for the GR Yaris starting from 33,200€ in Germany, key sports car market. Variations for taxes and other local factors may apply in other European markets.
