The all-new Toyota GR Yaris has officially reached Mzansi soil and is ready to take you to exhilarating adventures. This GR beast is no normal hot hatch. Incorporating knowledge and technology born from WRC, to give the ultimate sports car feeling. Experience 192kW of power, GR-FOUR all-wheel drive, a Gazoo Racing-tuned suspension, 360Nm of torque and a top speed of 230km/h in one of the most powerful 3 cylinder production engines in the world.
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.
The most powerful production 3-cylinder engine in the world.
Harnessing such prodigious power is a six-speed manual gearbox mated to a new GR-FOUR permanent all-wheel-drive system. For ultra-smooth downshifts, the transmission features Intelligent Manual Transmission with selectable automatic rev-matching.
The all-wheel-drive system is configured to deliver maximum accelerative traction through optimal torque distribution to all four wheels, while simultaneously remaining simple and lightweight. Torque distribution between the front and rear axles is managed by a high-response centre coupling, while two limited-slip Torsen differentials do the same for the split between the left-side and right-side wheels. This ensures a connected but natural driving feel and superlative adhesion for all road conditions. As a result, the GR Yaris accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 230 km/h. Handling excellence and on-the-limit control is guaranteed by Gazoo Racing-tuned MacPherson strut suspension in front, complemented by double wishbone at the back. For heightened control and dynamic adaptability during ultra-high performance driving – or the driver’s mood – the GR-Yaris’s all-wheel-drive can be adjusted.
Under the bonnet of the GR Yaris lies an engine that's anything but ordinary. Compact, lightweight and responsive, this 1.6-litre turbocharged powerplant is ready to respond on the track and ready to thrill on the road. What are you waiting for? Upgrade to GR – The all-new GR Yaris.
