The Toyota GR Yaris is the most energizing presentation vehicle delivered by the Japanese automaker since the new Supra, and in this video, we are furnished with a top to bottom glance at the powerful hot hatch.
The model tried in this video is badged as the GR Yaris RZ GR-Four in Japan and is one of three variations offered in the neighborhood market, the other two being the passage level RS with a 1.5-liter motor and the lead RC that trench civilities like the infotainment framework.
Around 66% of the video centers around the outside and inside of the GR Yaris, yet things get especially intriguing when the commentator hops in the driver’s seat and goes for a lively drive.
As you likely definitely know, the best possible GR Yaris (not the 1.5-liter variation) is fueled by a 1.6-liter turbocharged three-chamber motor conveying 268 hp and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) in Japanese determination. Those are amazing figures for a three-cylinder with this limit, however as the commentators in this video uncover, the vehicle doesn’t sound great. Truth be told, everything you can get with the driver’s seat is the weak sound of the three-cylinder however it is difficult to hear the fumes.
While driving the hatch through some twisty streets, the commentators note that it corners well however are not overwhelmed by it. They guarantee that it essentially isn’t too exciting to drive and feels more like a ‘warm hatch’ than a proper hot hatch. They additionally express that it’s presumably not worth the cash – very nearly ₦19m (US$47,830).
We plan to get the opportunity to drive the GR Yaris in the coming months and are very interested to check whether we arrive at a similar conclusion.
