Toyota are returning to the FIA World Rally Championship
after 17 years away – with more power, performance and precision than ever
before. The 2017 Toyota Yaris WRC is ready to take its place on the winner’s
podium, and they want you to experience the power, too. That’s why they’ve
created a new full-blooded hot-hatch, the Toyota Yaris GRMN, which will be
available to pre-order this summer from Johnsons Toyota.
Back and better than ever
The Yaris GRMN has been tuned and tested on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife to guarantee a truly thrilling ride, and it comes packed with cutting-edge technology and comfort to take your drive to the next level. BBS 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels create an unbeatably sporty look, with aggressive styling emphasised by the black wing-type spoiler, rear diffuser and central exhaust pipe.
One word: Supercharged
Prepare for a truly unique hot-hatch experience in the Yaris GRMN, thanks to a supercharged 1.8-litre engine producing more than 205bhp, Torsen limited-slip differential and larger front stabiliser. A reinforced chassis with additional bracing provides a more rewarding drive too, allowing you to feel the road like never before.
All this power is delivered to the front wheels, using a six-speed manual transmission that creates ‘best-in-class’ time, both from 0 to 62mph, and from 50-75mph in fourth gear. Combining this with extensive track tests and input from Toyota Gazoo Racing’s motorsport activities promises a drive you won’t forget any time soon.
Relax and feel the power
You can enjoy the thrilling speeds and intuitive handling, all from the comfort of the carefully crafted cabin – relax in tailor-made front sports seats that have been specially designed by Toyota Boshuku, for superior support, and take control in a redesigned, driver-focused cabin that puts everything at the touch of your fingertips.
The Toyota Yaris GRMN will be available later this year from Johnsons Toyota in Liverpool, Southport and Wirral, were you’ll be able to take a test drive to feel the incredible power for yourself.
