Toyota Yaris GR: FIND YOUR PLAYGROUND

Toyota Yaris GR
Toyota Yaris GR
It must be said that Toyota Yaris Gr has undeniable sporting advantages. Under the hood, the engine develops 261 horsepower. But that's not its only attraction. The car is equipped with permanent all-wheel drive, which allows several combinations. The front axle can then take up to 60% of the power. In a second scenario, it is the 50/50 balance between the two axles, and in a more robust “sport” mode, the rear wheels are distributed up to 70% of the power. In the latter case, the GR then becomes very playful. All it takes is a quick brake on wet ground for the rear axle to slip away with delight.

THE HERITAGE OF THE GT-FOUR

Toyota Yaris GR
A world-renowned name, synonymous with performance and an icon of 1980s-90s rallying - a discipline that demands power, precision and confidence. Today, more than 20 years after the legendary Celica GT-FOUR last appeared on the track, the legacy lives on. This time it's the GR-FOUR, advanced four-wheel drive technology.

Internet users' favorite sports trophy

Toyota Yaris GR
Internet users were invited to vote for their favorite vehicle among 12 sports cars released in 2020. In this wide choice, the Toyota GR Yaris took the lead. They were seduced, no doubt, by its 261 hp. extracts from a 100% thermal 3-cylinder, its permanent four-wheel drive... which make it one of the last small GTIs in the category. The prize was awarded to Antoine Delacroix, Toyota GAZOO Racing Brand Manager, by Margot Laffite.

Toyota Yaris GR engine: LIGHT AND AERODYNAMIC

Toyota Yaris GR
1.6 liter engine developing 261 hp, power-to-weight ratio of just 4.9 kg/hp and 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds. Rounding it all off is the all-new GR-FOUR all-wheel drive that puts all that power to the ground: at the top of the Yaris lineup sits a hard-core high-performance vehicle, and a future classic that carries on Toyota's sporty heritage from legend like the Celica GT4 and the Supra Twin-Turbo. Through this model, Toyota proves that its technological expertise goes well beyond hybrid motorization.

Its particularity lies in its permanent all-wheel drive. Indeed, each of its wheels "scratches" the asphalt, giving it admirable efficiency. Designed like a rally car, the Japanese can vary the distribution of torque between the two axles, depending on the type of driving adopted and the playing field borrowed. Thus, the front axle receives 60% of the torque in basic mode, while the two axles share it equally in Track mode. And a perfect imbalance is applied in Sport mode: the rear axle absorbs 70% of the torque, giving this Yaris a behavior that seems more dynamic. It is even mobile and very playful in the wet, where hard braking is enough to make it slide.
Toyota Yaris GR
its 10-spoke BBS rims are forged, lighter, and coated with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, its damping is firmer and it has front and rear limited-slip differentials, thanks to which you can maintain a drift until the exit of the bend, like a rally driver. In support or sliding, turns where the laws of physics require it to slow down, the GR extracts itself by leaping to the next curve. The incisive direction and good will of the chassis allow it to obey constantly, even when optimism exceeds understanding. At the wheel, you have to demonstrate a certain excellence in mediocrity to miss the rope. For example, arriving much too quickly! And precisely, the engine is one of those that puts you behind every time you brake...
Toyota Yaris GR
With only three pistons and 1.6 liters of displacement, this small block full as an egg, gently brutal and responding to the orders of a mechanical transmission with short gearing, develops 261 hp. That's more than enough to catch a slide, set real times and have fun all year round, on strips of asphalt like snow-covered passes or dirt roads. Height of fun: Toyota has laid rear drums specially dedicated to the handbrake, which disengages the rear axle to prevent transmission blockages. A real invitation to “pull the cable”…

This little scabby Yaris, a real UFO at a time when the most modest GTi have disappeared from the catalogs, even allows itself to carry rear seats. It is also in this versatility that lies the strength of this small 3.99 m long car, worthy heir to the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer.
