    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!

    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 .

    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

    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.

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Toyota offers a 300 EUR lease (no initial payment) for the Yaris GR and I am very inclined to get one.

    For this kind of money, I can risk it. My son wants to train on a manual anyway. 😛

    Currently, Toyota hasn‘t launched the car yet but soon.

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    I am on the list at the local dealer to have a test drive. I was told around end of November. I tried to convince my wife to get this car as her city driver, but she refuses Smiley

    A lease at 300 EUR with no downpayment is pretty interesting . Don' t think we will get this kind of deal ever here.

    Guys, I would order one even without test-driving it. This car is really a toy, nothing more. I wouldn't pay 37k EUR (with Performance package) for it, no way but if the 300 (350 with Performance Package) EUR lease rate is accurate, 48 months, 10k km per year, I'm probably in but only if my son wants to drive this car too (I have my doubts). I know this is probably no car for a beginner but...we'll see. I need a smaller city car anyway (had the A45 S AMG on my radar, this one is 700 EUR a month for 36 months), so... Smiley

    Unfortunately Toyota hasn't gotten back to me yet and the local dealer doesn't know exactly when the first cars arrive, maybe in December. Also, demand seems to be quite low according to dealer (he seems to be honest). There don't seem to be many people who want to pay 37k EUR for a Yaris. Smiley

    That said, there are rumors of an even hotter version on the horizon.. Maybe it's worth to wait a little while?

    Yes, true but I don't know...this hotter version will surely have a "hotter" price tag as well and who is willing to pay 50k or more for a fun car Yaris? Smiley

    Don't know how Germany has always these super cheap leases Smiley  

    I just checked here, and the same lease would come to  553 EUR ( with performance pack )

    https://www.autobild.de/artikel/toyota-gr-yaris-2020-leasing-reservieren-16607803.html

    It was kind of a pre-order offer from Toyota but apparently it is still valid for Germany. Performance Pack costs 50 EUR more per month. Lease is for 4(!) years though.

    Our lease offers are not as a good as they were anymore: Mercedes and Audi are much more expensive now (I got offered a new RS3 for 500 EUR per month last year), the A45 S AMG (worth 77k) I want to lease is officially around 800 EUR per month, I was able to get it down to 700 EUR.

    There is a Range Rover Sport (525 hp V8) offer here, lease is 1200 EUR per month, 36 months, 10k km per year, no down payment.

    There are other examples...

    G63 AMG I can get for 2400 EUR per month now, only 10k km per year, 36 months, car is worth 170k EUR. Expensive.

    VW models are super cheap to lease here...there was a Polo WRC offer here last year, 220 EUR per month.

    BMW has also, sometimes, very attractive lease offers. Had an offer for a M5 Performance last year for 1000 EUR per month, fully loaded.

    There was even a McLaren 540c lease offer here for 999 EUR per month two years or so ago.
