Toyota GR Yaris set for Bournemouth appearance as part of UK debut tour | August 2020

The eagerly anticipated Toyota GR Yaris is set to be at Hendy Toyota in Bournemouth in October as part of the car's UK debut tour.

The car will be at the dealership on Monday October 5th and Tuesday October 6th enabling potential customers to take a first close-up look at the model in the metal.

The eagerly anticipated GR Yaris is a true performance "homologation special", honed and developed from Toyota Gazoo Racing's World Rally Championship-winning experience.

Customers are invited to make a personal appointment to visit, giving them plenty of time to take in the detail and learn more from the specialist sales teams about how the GR Yaris has been developed, its performance and equipment specifications.

The cars are pre-production models and will be on static display only with details of driving opportunities in production-ready cars to be announced at a future date.

The GR Yaris is Toyota's second global GR model engineered by Toyota Gazoo Racing, following the launch of the GR Supra. It is powered by a new, turbocharged 1.6-litre cylinder engine that produces 257bhp and drives all four wheels through Toyota's new GR-Four sports all-wheel drive system. Acceleration from 0-62mph can be achieved in less than 5.5 seconds.

Customers opting for the Circuit Pack version of GR Yaris gain further performance-focused features, including 18-inch BBS forged alloy wheels with Michelin Sport Pilot 4s tyres, circuit-tuned GR suspension, two Torsen limited-slip differentials and red-painted brake callipers.

The new GR Yaris is available to order now.

Shortlist is currently empty.
