    Toyota Yaris GR

    Any fans of the recently released Yaris GR? Love that it is a full-on homologation special to get the 3-doors body into WRC. Strengthened shell, bespoke engine, full-time 4WD, ... Most have been a insane development budget, I find it brilliant that Toyota still pulls it off in this day and age.

    I'm very curious to see first impressions, but I'm more on this way of thinking!

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    When I heard  about it it caught immediately my attention . All seems to be there . The size , the power , the chassis , the engine , and the whole engineering behind it . Was even considering  it as a fun around town car .

    Thinking the same, would be a cool city car with a twist!

    Was thinking it could be a nice successor to my Evo IX daily driver (fun having a sporty AWD rally car in the snow here).  I love the fact that you can also switch it to 70% or 100% RWD too...

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Will be a little bundle of joy. On my radar too...

    Probably hard to get?

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Specs : 

    Engine : 3 cylindres 1,6 l turbo 
    Gear box : manual   6 gears
    Transmission:  AWD
    Weight (kg): 1280 
    Power (ch): 261 
    Torque(Nm): 360 
    Accélération (0-100 km/h): 5,2 s 
    Speed max. (km/h): 230 
     

    A very interesting feature is that you can change the AWD setting from 30% to the front 70 % to the back, or 50% front 50% back or 60 front 40 back .

    If someone is interested I would go now to the dealer to put my name down .

    Not really, under current homologation rules they have to build 25.000 examples. 

    Price to be expected 33.000 for base model, 39.000 for trackpack (2 more diffs + 18" lighter wheels and MP4S tires)

    I love that too (reminds me of Ur Quattro).  I also read that there is a pure RWD mode too...

    Yes, hugely excited and impressed about Toyota’s determination to build such a car. Not sure if I would find it suitable for my demands but must be a fun daily driver for anybody living close to the mountains.
