Description

The third generation of the Toyota Yaris (XP130) is a B-Segment car launched in 2011 and facelifted in 2014 and 2017.

The limited edition (400 cars for European customers), hot hatch version of the model, Toyota Yaris III GRMN, launched together with the second facelift at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, inspired by the company’s return to the FIA World Rally Championship. It was fitted with a supercharged 1.8 liter Dual VVT-i engine (2ZR-FE ) producing 212 hp (156 kw) of power and 250 Nm of torque, combined with a 6 speed manual gearbox. The engine was equipped with a Magnusson Eaton supercharger and Dual VVT-i intelligent variable timing for inlet and exhaust valves. The car accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 6,3 seconds and could reach an electronically limited top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph). Other modifications over the standard car made by Toyota Gazoo Racing team, included a Torsen limited slip differential, stiffened chassis (lateral bar across the engine bay, between the front suspension towers and rear chassis underbody bracing), shorter springs (24mm lower ride height), performance shock absorbers developed with Sachs, larger brakes, fully reworked exhaust system, 17 inch wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE050 205/45R17 tyres and larger diameter (26mm) front anti-roll bar.

Visually, the car which was only available in 3-door bodystyle, was distinguished by its unique bodykit that included a honeycomb front grille, LED headlights, 17-inch BBS lightweight multi-spoke alloys, black rear spoiler, bespoke rear bumper design, rear diffuser and central oval exhaust tailpipe. It also came with a special white paint finish with red and black flash detailing, echoing the livery of the Yaris WRC. Inside, the car featured sport seats, engine start button, small diameter leather wrapped steering wheel (sourced from the Toyota GT86), aluminium sports pedals and trim detailing, as well as a bespoke combimeter with TFT display.
