New Toyota GR Yaris Special Editions Unveiled: WRC-inspired Designs for Ultimate Performance!

If you’re a fan of rally-inspired hot hatches, then the news of Toyota releasing not one, but two special editions of the GR Yaris should have you jumping for joy. The Japanese automaker has taken their already impressive hot hatch and added some extra oomph, drawing inspiration from their World Rally Championship (WRC) endeavors.

First up is the Toyota GR Yaris Circuit Pack, designed for those who crave a more dynamic driving experience. This special edition comes equipped with a Torsen limited-slip differential for improved handling, while also boasting 18-inch BBS forged alloy wheels that are not only lighter but also enhance the vehicle’s overall performance. To top it off, the Circuit Pack also features retuned suspension and front and rear differentials, ensuring a more thrilling and engaging ride on the road.

If that wasn’t enough to get your heart racing, Toyota also unveiled the GR Yaris Convenience Pack, catering to those who prefer a more comfort-oriented driving experience. This special edition comes with features such as a JBL premium sound system, a rear privacy glass, and a two-tone Scarlet Flare Red and black roof paint option. It’s the perfect choice for those looking for a balance of performance and luxury in their hot hatch.

Both of these special editions are powered by the same 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that produces 257 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, capable of propelling the GR Yaris from 0-60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. This kind of power combined with the lightweight and agile nature of the GR Yaris makes for an exhilarating driving experience that few other cars in its class can match.

The exterior of these special editions has also been given the WRC treatment, with the addition of a new Circuit Edition decal for the Circuit Pack and a convenience pack-specific JBL decal for the Convenience Pack, making a bold statement on the road.

Inside, the cabin of both special editions is adorned with GR-branded sports seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The driver’s seat also benefits from a 10-way power-adjustable feature, ensuring maximum comfort for those spirited drives.

In terms of safety, the GR Yaris special editions come with a suite of advanced driver assistance features including pre-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, and automatic high beams, providing peace of mind for both daily commutes and thrilling weekend drives.

All in all, Toyota has taken their already impressive GR Yaris and upped the ante with these WRC-inspired special editions, catering to both performance enthusiasts and comfort seekers. With its superb handling, powerful engine, and now, additional features, the GR Yaris is proving itself to be a force to be reckoned with in the hot hatch segment. So, if you’re in the market for a rally-inspired hot hatch that stands out from the crowd, the Toyota GR Yaris special editions might just be the car for you.
