The Toyota Yaris GR is one of the most exciting cars of 2020, bringing the technology and passion of rally cars to the little Yaris hatchback with exciting results. Trick With an all-wheel drive system, turbocharged engine, and manual transmission, this little hot hatch is the perfect antidote for the ever-growing number of passionate vehicles on the road today. After all, Toyota may have a more focused Toyota Yaris along the way. It was tested at the Nürburgring.
Toyota’s GRMN Performance Division stands for Nürburgring’s Gazu Racing Masters, and this dedicated team has big plans for the future of Toyota’s enthusiast products. Toyota has a rich history of motorsport and has recently been very successful in endurance races, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Toyota has also advanced in the world of rallies, finishing second in the WRC constructor. It is the 2019 championship, and Hyundai won the top spot in 2020 with great results.
This passion for motorsport has had a huge impact on Toyota, and Toyota’s product line is slowly shifting to reach more enthusiasts. The 2018 Toyota Yaris GRMN has set tons of future GRMN products that provide a driver-focused experience rather than chasing all performance figures. The evolution of this exciting performance brand can be seen as the 2020 Yaris GR hits all regions except the United States.
In a recent spy video on the Nürburgring, you can see a more aggressive aero and more hardcore Toyota Yaris GR test. It’s not too hard to speculate that this is the top tier Yaris GRMN and could offer a more focused hot hatch to slot on top of the new Yaris GR. Only time is known, but we look forward to Toyota’s passion for motorsport permeating more vehicles in its portfolio.
