Toyota have two new additions to the Yaris range available this year offering more distinctive style and performance. The new Y20 celebrates the supermini’s 20th anniversary, while the hot-looking GR Sport is inspired by the exclusive Yaris GRMN performance hatch.
Both versions take their place in a revised Yaris range, which continues to offer the established Active, Icon, Icon Tech and Excel grades – the latter with enhanced equipment specifications. Yaris remains unique in the supermini market in offering customers the fuel-efficient, low emissions and refined performance of a self-charging full hybrid powertrain.
Inspired by the exclusive Yaris GRMN performance hatchback, the new Yaris GR Sport brings more sporting style and handling to Toyota’s supermini range and is another example of the motorsports success of Toyota Gazoo Racing – winners of both the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Rally Championship’s manufacturers’ crown in 2018 – is feeding into a new generation of exciting road-going cars.
The Yaris GR Sport focuses on suspension, giving the car engaging and handling responsiveness. The exterior styling follows that of the Yaris GRMN, including a black bi-tone roof with rear spoiler. There are piano black door mouldings, a black honeycomb grille, black door mirror housings and black front fog light surrounds.
The GR Sport is exclusively a five-door model, powered by a standard 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain.
The Toyota Yaris Y20 is a limited-edition version of the popular Toyota model, it has a bi-tone paint design combined with contemporary dark grey finish for the roof, pillars and door mirror housings. There’re just 100 cars available to UK customers.
The Y20 grade offers customers a strong combination of style and equipment features, including a bi-tone finish as standard, with a choice of gold, black, silver or white bodywork. The impact of the car’s styling is heightened by rear privacy glass, 16-inch alloy wheels with a machined/dark grey contrast finish and dark grey fog light surrounds, side sills and front grille, plus Y20 badging.
The smart dark grey theme is picked up in the cabin with trim detailing on the steering wheel and centre console. This contrasts with a satin finish for the shift lever surround, air vents and audio speaker trims. The front sport seats have a dark and light grey upholstery with silver grey edging to the head restraints, seatbacks and cushions. The front seats are decorated with the Y20 logo; there is also a Y20 badge on the left side of the dashboard.ext here ...
