Born from WRC

The new GR Yaris is no normal hot hatch.


It's a thoroughbred. Born from WRC. It’s not made by committee, but by people united by one passion: winning. Co-developed with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team, it incorporates knowledge and technology from the pinnacle of motorsport, enabling it to succeed on every surface in the World Rally Championship (WRC), yet still deliver true sports car feeling, every day, on the roads you tackle.

United through rally


Fate brought Tommi Mäkinen and Akio Toyoda together in 2014. The four-time WRC champion and president of Toyota - two men united through rally - bonded in one epic session of ice driving. The perfect spark for Toyota's return to the WRC with a sports car built to win. The new GR Yaris.

All for GR-FOUR


At the heart of the new GR Yaris is GR-FOUR, Toyota's first sports four-wheel-drive system in 20 years. Developed in collaboration with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team and honed by WRC drivers, it delivers exceptional levels of traction and control.

Racing response


Under the bonnet of the GR Yaris lies an engine that’s anything but ordinary. Compact, lightweight and high-revving, this intoxicating 1.6-litre turbocharged powerplant is ready to respond on the track and ready to thrill on the road.

Power 261 DIN hp
Torque 360 Nm
0-100 km/h 5.2 sec
Top speed 230 km/h

Styled for success

Unlike most new cars, the GR Yaris hasn’t been designed to turn heads, but to lift trophies – in style. Low, wide and dramatic, its aerodynamic design employs a host of weight-saving materials to ensure it wins on the fast crests of Rally Finland and the flowing curves of your favourite road.

Made by Motomachi

When you need to assemble a truly bespoke sports car like the GR Yaris, there's only one place you want your creation to come alive: Motomachi, Japan. The birthplace of legends such as the Lexus LFA and Supra A80, Motomachi is now home to the first GR production line, ready to hand-build a hot hatch like no other


Being handmade by experts means that each GR Yaris takes over 10 times longer to be assembled than a conventional mass-produced car. The production line has been streamlined for performance, with elements such as body alignment checks and additional welding ensuring that each GR Yaris is built with meticulous care and attention. Just as any bespoke racing machine should.
