ALL NEW GR YARIS
The new GR Yaris is no normal hot hatch. Incorporating knowledge and technology born from WRC, to deliver a true sports car feeling every day. Developed with the experts at Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team, GR Yaris incorporates advanced technology including GR-FOUR our first sports AWD system in 20 years, and a thrilling 1.6-litre, 3 Cylinder Turbo engine. Lightweight and exhilarating. The New GR Yaris is born from WRC.
Unlike most new cars, the GR Yaris hasn’t been designed to turn heads, but to lift trophies – in style. Low, wide and dramatic, its aerodynamic design employs a host of weight-saving materials to ensure it wins on the challenging crests of Rally Finland and the flowing curves of your favourite road.
The new GR Yaris is a pure performance car, born from Toyota’s title-winning experience in the World Rally Championship. It brings motorsport technology and design directly to the world of the road car, true to TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s ethos for making ever-better cars that are rewarding and fun to drive.
Featuring motorsport technologies never seen before in a production car, the newly developed three-cylinder, 1.6-litre turbocharged engine delivers outstanding acceleration and response. Incorporating Toyota-first techniques and materials, such as a unique block, bespoke pistons and a single-scroll ball-bearing turbo to reduce weight and enhance drivability, GR Yaris has the power to make every journey come alive.
ALL NEW GR-FOUR 4WD SYSTEM
New, unique, lightweight, Simple Sports 4WD system, making GR Yaris competitive in all conditions. 4WD performance optimised for a broad range of situations, from low temperature environments to high load environments such as a circuit.
4WD MODE SWITCH

GR YARIS SUSPENSION

Repeatedly tested and honed by WRC drivers, the GR-FOUR 4WD system features a high-response coupling that balances torque between front and rear wheels. This delivers greater cornering response and stability for tight corners.
RALLY INSPIRED DESIGN
