Toyota has announced the date and location of the debut of the new hot hatch GR Yaris. The presentation of new items will be organized as part of the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show.

One of the participants in the Tokyo motor show, which will open its doors on January 10, will be the “charged” Toyota GR Yaris hatchback. Recall a few days ago, the brand shared a teaser of the novelty, hinting at the appearance of a four-wheel drive system. The experts were prompted by the inscription GR-4. Toyota GR Yaris hatchback is the second model to wear the GR logo. This is how models from the Toyota Gazoo Racing line of sports cars are marked after the return of the legendary Toyota GR Supra in 2018. The novelty gets enlarged wheel arches, a redesigned grille and an aggressive body kit in the spirit of a rally car.

At the same time, the “charged” hatchback combined the advanced technologies and the rich experience gained in the races of the WRC series.

 It is interesting that even during the official presentation, visitors to the Tokyo motor show will not be able to see the car in all its glory: the hatchback will try on camouflage in the signature colors of TGR. It is red, black and white. According to expert forecasts, GR Yaris will receive a more powerful engine than the current version of the model. It is equipped with a 1.8-liter 209-horsepower engine.

Earlier, our portal talked about the fact that the public premiere of GR Yaris had to be postponed. She was appointed on November 17, and Australia was chosen as the venue. However, this event was foiled by forest fires.
