It was based on the performance-orientated variant of the 4th-generation Toyota Yaris of the same name.
General info[edit | edit source]
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 | edit source]
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 | edit source]
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.
