The new Toyota GR Yaris is equipped with technological, design and structural enhancements to deliver an even more intense driving experience.
In the three years since the first vehicle rolled off the production line, the work to improve it has not stopped: more powerful, more responsive, more manageable and more driving pleasure.
The list of changes is extensive, and fully justifies the name of the new GR Yaris. Some of the key elements are the evolution of the three-cylinder turbocharged engine and the introduction of the eight-speed GAZOO Racing direct automatic transmission.
Toyota GR Yaris technology and designThe chassis has been strengthened and inside the cabin, the layout of the driver's compartment and the driving position have been redesigned to achieve a more authentic sports car feel, whether driving on the road or in competition. The suspension has been tuned to increase control and performance at the range, with revised flexibility and increased absorption of the front shock absorbers.
The lightweight body of the GR Yaris is now stiffer, with about 13% more spot welds and about 24% more structural resin use. As a result, vehicle response, steering response and grip feel are increased, thereby further improving chassis stability and flexibility.
Inside the GR Yaris, significant changes have been made to the driving area to give it a truly sporty feel, with a design faithful to the driver-first principles that define the vehicle. The Equis is inspired by the layout of a rally car to relocate the controls and provide fast and intuitive access to the driver.
Toyota GR Yaris technology and designThe instrument cluster has a new 12.3-inch fully digital gauge cluster with two different modes: normal and sport; The second provides a visualization of the data that focuses on game performance. The design avoids superfluous elements so that graphics and information can be seen and understood immediately.
In terms of new equipment, the latest generation of safety sense systems, navigation and digital key stand out. The model with automatic transmission offers higher specification with forged wheels, rear and side monitors and a premium JBL sound system.
