The Toyota Yaris GR Sport Is A GRMN Without The Power

Toyota Yaris GR Sport Arrives With A Focus On Sharpening Handling New Toyota Yaris GR Sport Wants To Be Fun And Engaging But There’s A Catch

Toyota Yaris GR Sport arrives with new shocks, a stiffer anti-roll bar, and stickier tyres.

Toyota will bring the new Yaris GR Sport and Yaris Y20 to the upcoming Paris Auto Show for their official public debut. The model in question is the Yaris Y20, which is a limited edition version of the supermini that's been produced to celebrate 20 years of Yaris being in production.

These include a series of enhancements on the suspension in order to give the Yaris "engaging handling and responsiveness". Along with that excellent powerplant there are a number of GRMN-inspired upgrades to turn this Yaris into something a little bit special, including Sachs Performance shock absorbers, a solid anti-roll bar and a stance 11mm lower than the standard vehicle.

Black 17-inch cast alloy wheels are exclusive to the GR Sport, but are fitted with the same Bridgestone Potenza RE50 205/45 R17 rubber worn by the GRMN model.

Toronto city clerk says it's becoming 'virtually impossible' to hold municipal election
The clause allows a government to have a law operate in spite of a right found in Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Municipal Affairs Minister Steve Clark said Thursday that he still believes the city can head to the polls as scheduled.

Compared to the standard Yaris, the new GR Sport sits 11mm closer to the ground, with Toyota pointing out that the gap between the wheel and the body has been reduced by 18mm. Red decals can be optionally added to the front lip and the top line of the lower rear bumper.

The GR Sport is exclusively a five-door and will be available with Yaris's standard 1.5-litre hybrid electric powertrain.

To distinguish it from the rest of the range, the Yaris GR Sport gets some aesthetic tweaks - including a number of black-painted trim pieces such as the bi-tone roof, honeycomb grille, door mirror housings and fog light surrounds. The headlights are unique to the GR Sport, with black interior detailing.

On the inside, the Yaris GR Sport has moderately bolstered sport seats in a combination of black and white Ultrasuede. When the driver presses the start button, the multi-information TFT display comes to life with the GR logo, setting the tone for a rewarding drive in store. A new chequer-pattern fabric upholstery, along with satin chrome air vents, speakers and gear knob trim are just some of the Y20's special features. Black GR-branded mats with silver edging are also part of the package.
