New Toyota GR Yaris evolution: full tech details and DRIVEN on track.

E-Commerce Solutions SEO Solutions Marketing Solutions
The Toyota GR Yaris has been a smash hit for Toyota. It needed to make 25,000 cars with this body style to homologate it for rallying but has already made 32,000 and counting. Hence there is budget, and opportunity, for a facelift.

And here it is, in prototype form. We've got full details of all the technical changes to the car, which includes more power and the option of an automatic gearbox. But there's much more to it than just the numbers.

We've also driven the car on circuit in both manual and automatic form.

(Also: VERY SORRY about the sound quality. We've been chasing an issue with some kit and, ultimately, have decided to replace it. Won't happen again.)

And below are some tech details. We don't know how much the new GR Yaris will cost yet. At the moment it's £35,705 including the Circuit Pack, which will effectively become the only variant. Production starts in April and UK customers will get first cars in June.
