Toyota GR Yaris buying guide

What Toyota GR Yaris trim levels are there?

There aren’t really any trim levels for the GR Yaris, but you can get cars with the Convenience Pack or the Circuit Pack. You can’t have both, so you’ll need to decide whether the parking sensors, head-up display and sat nav of the Convenience Pack are better than the limited-slip differentials, lightweight wheels and uprated suspension that comes with the Circuit Pack. The vast majority of new GR Yaris go for the Circuit Pack – this is a car that puts driving thrills front and centre, after all.

Toyota GR Yaris interior and technology

Unsurprisingly, the GR Yaris does share its interior architecture with the common-or-garden Yaris, although you do get lots of sporty touches. There are GR badges, very snug bucket seats, metal pedals and a speedometer that now maxes out at 180mph – even if the top speed is 143mph.

Toyota GR Yaris engine range explained

Toyota GR Yaris 1.6

Always eager, always a bit raw, the 1.6-litre petrol engine under the stubby bonnet of the GR Yaris is a real delight. The acceleration on offer is addictive, and you’ll certainly want to take the long way home once you’ve left the office car park. In fact, with the near-endless grip from the four-wheel-drive system, the GR Yaris will show a clean pair of heels to most supercars down a damp and twisty B-road.

Your Toyota GR Yaris questions answered

The GR Yaris was built to be a rally car first and foremost, but never got to race in the WRC as the competition changed its rules to make teams use hybrid cars. Toyota decided this wouldn’t do, and kept the GR Yaris as a purely petrol engined car. This pretty compact car has 257hp and performance-focused all-wheel drive, plus a tricksy suspension setup to go round corners at high speed.

Let’s just say performance takes a higher priority than practicality, even if this is a car you might reasonably drive on a daily basis. The obvious difference is that the GR Yaris is a three-door car, whereas the standard Yaris is a five-door, which’ll make it more difficult to get in and out of the back seats. The roofline is a whole 9cm lower than the standard Yaris, too, maximising aerodynamic efficiency but chopping out a bit of headroom at the same time. And, because of some of the performance updates, the boot stands at 174 litres – some 107 litres less than the car it’s loosely based on.

There’s only one, but it’s all the engine you could want. A 1.6-litre three-cylinder petrol engine doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? But power is turned up to 261hp – that’s a lot in a car this small – and four-wheel drive comes as standard. Twiddle through the driving modes and the amount of power sent to each axle is different, enabling a slightly different feel on track or on the road. Toyota’s weight-saving measures means the car’s pretty light by modern standards.
