Toyota GR Yaris AWD presented: compact «lighter» for 3 million rubles.

The Japanese have officially announced the launch of the Toyota GR Yaris hot hatch on the European market. Interestingly, the model was developed to homologate a racing car that the company plans to claim for next season’s WRC rally championship.

The «hot» version of the 2021 Toyota GR Yaris has a unique three-door body, while the usual version of the model (in Europe it is a five-door hybrid) is only reminiscent of similar headlights and lanterns, as well as side mirrors and a fin antenna on the roof.

In technical terms, the car largely repeats the standard five-door, but there are still enough design features. Instead of a torsion beam on the rear axle, the Japanese installed double wishbones.

The roof of the model is made of carbon fiber, while the fenders, hood and stern are made of aluminum.

As a result, the hot hatch weighs 1,280 kg (-12%), while it turned out to be 55 mm longer and 95 mm lower than the original.

The 2021 Toyota GR Yaris is driven by a 1.6-liter turbo engine with 261 hp. and 360 Nm. According to the developers, this is the most powerful three-cylinder unit currently on the market.

The motor works in tandem with a six-speed manual transmission that transmits traction to all four wheels.

Acceleration from standstill to hundreds is possible in less than 5.5 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 230 km / h.

Separately, it is worth noting the all-wheel drive GR-Four AWD, which here has three operating modes:

Normal, Sport and Track, in which the distribution of traction between the axles occurs in the ratio of 60:40, 30:70 and 50:50, respectively.

In terms of equipment, the Toyota GR Yaris AWD already has LED headlights, a multimedia system with an 8.0-inch display, support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay interfaces, Ultrasuede sports suede seats, etc.
