The Toyota GR Yaris (Japanese: トヨタ GR ヤリス, Toyota Ji~iaru Yarisu) is a Racing Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya on August 8, 2020.

It was based on the performance-orientated variant of the 4th-generation Toyota Yaris of the same name.

General info Edit

The GR Yaris has the 3-door hatchback body design, with a carbon-fiber pattern on the rooftop.

On the front, the GR Yaris has a pair of angled headlamps that were extended toward the front wheels, as well as a pair of daytime-running-lamps on the bumper. Also on the front is a large air intake with honeycomb-shaped grille. On the rear, there is a small spoiler that was attached on the rear of the roof.

Due to how the bodyshell was designed, the GR Yaris has a special bodycatch which, when attached, resembles a single-pipe exhaust when viewed from the top. Being equipped with the VZ Chassis, it is possible to make it more resemble to its real-life counterpart by removing the front bumper and rear stay.

In additions to the standard body decals, it was also provided with the numbering bib decals.

Standard variant Edit

The standard variant features the Pure White body color.

It was equipped with the black, small-diameter fin-type low-profile wheels paired with the black low-profile tires. The chassis and A parts were molded in gray.

About the real-life vehicle the Mini 4WD car is based on Edit

Unveiled as a prototype in Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival on December 15, 2019, and as production model in Tokyo Auto Salon on January 10, 2020. The GR Yaris is the performance-orientated variant of the XP210 Yaris. It is the second Toyota car to bear the GR badge after the Toyota GR Supra, and is heavily inspired by its rally-legal counterpart.

Unlike the regular Yaris, the GR Yaris is only available in the bespoke 3-door hatchback option. It utilizes a combination of the two different variants of Toyota New Global Architecture platform, with the GA-B variant being used for the front (as with the regular Yaris) and GA-C variant (First seen in Toyota's 4th-generation XW50 Prius, the C-HR and the 12th-generation E210 Corolla) being used for the rear. Supporting the platform are the four-wheel independent suspension setup, with the MacPherson struts on the front and the double-wishbone on the rear.

The GR Yaris was available in multiple trim level: The top-tier RZ, the base RS and the bare-bone RC trim. Powering both RZ and RC trims is a 1.6 liter G16E-GTS turbocharged straight-3 petrol engine (capable of producing 257 to 268 hp of power and 360–370 N⋅m of torque), mated to a 6-speed V16 series intelligent manual gearbox and a GR-Four all-wheel-drive drive-train. The base RS trim, on the other hand, was powered by a 1.5 liter M15A-FKS straight-3 petrol engine (capable of producing 118 hp of power and 145 N⋅m of torque), mated a CVT gearbox and a front-wheel-drive drive-train. Only the RZ and RC trims were made available outside of Japan.
