Toyota GR Yaris hatchback tested on dynoNovember 19, 2020
A video appeared on the YouTube channel showing the process of measuring the power of the high-performance Japanese hatchback Toyota GR Yaris. The car turned out to be more powerful than Toyota claimed.
The video, which was posted on YouTube channel NM2255 Car HD Videos, and filmed at the Biesse Racing studio in Italy, offers us a look at the most productive version of the Japanese Toyota Yaris compact hatchback. The tuning company tied the car to a four-wheel dyno for some basic measurements. The video claims that this Yaris is fully stock, meaning no changes have been made to its engine and gearbox, and judging by the amazing “no engine sound” tested throughout its engine rev range, this may indeed be true.
We also want to fully believe the figures that were obtained after all measurements.
We’re used to seeing dyno readings listed in horsepower, which show the engine power that is being delivered to the wheels of the car, but this time it looks like the results were “taken” from the engine crankshaft.
The small 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine develops a maximum power of 278 horsepower. Thus, these figures are higher than those that Toyota itself assures – and this is 257 hp.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote about how the Toyota GR Yaris accelerates to 100 km / h in 5.3 seconds. The high-performance version of the Japanese Toyota GR Yaris hatchback accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.3 seconds. The foreign YouTube channel shows the real acceleration of this “evil” little car.
