Toyota published a new teaser on the “charged” hatchback GR Yaris

The Japanese 2020 model year novelty will be officially unveiled on January 10 of next year during the Tokyo Motor Show.

Just a week ago, our publication published the so-called “spy” photos, which captured the high-performance performance of the Japanese compact hatchback Toyota Yaris, which received the GR prefix to the name. The peculiarity of those pictures was that the car did not receive any camouflage – it was reported that she took part in the filming for advertising. But apparently, the automaker still wants to “play a long game with us” before introducing the production car in early January next year.

In this new video, which was published by the automaker’s press service a couple of minutes ago, rally stars Ott Tanak, Chris Mike and Jari-Matti Latavala, as well as Toyota WRC team leader Tommy Makinen, get the opportunity to control the GR Yaris and share their impressions on camera. It is worth noting separately that the racing legend – Mr. Makinen, tells us that in every sense this is an “exciting” car.

Previous rumors tell us that the official presentation of the serial Toyota GR Yaris will be held on January 10, 2020 during the Tokyo Motor Show.

The automaker’s initial plan was to present the car during an Australia rally (November 14–17 this year), but canceling the rally delayed the car’s global debut due to catastrophic fires.

 Official technical details about the new product are not yet known, but it is widely believed that the high-performance new product will receive a turbocharged four-cylinder engine connected to a mechanical gearbox and four-wheel drive system. In addition, the novelty will receive many different technical updates from the Toyota WRC racing team.
