If you are one of those street legal racing car enthusiasts, then you just got lucky as the Yaris is coming in a Rally type design.

In a bid to rejuvenate its reputation as one of the best when it comes to building street-legal rally cars as well as consolidate its successes in the WRC (World Rally Championship), Toyota delivered to the market its own in-house designed and built rally type car, the Toyota Yaris GR. Remember Toyota recently brought back the GR Supra? But the GR Yaris has the imprint and the perfect identity of the Toyota brand compared to the Supra that had most of its design and production down by BMW and others. 

The GR Yaris is designed for performance and ruggedness. It comes with an array of components and parts specifically designed to make the GR Yaris the perfect rally car is built to be. It comes built on an all-new and dedicated platform which integrates features of the Toyota GA-B and GA-C platforms, to deliver a perfect structure upon which the GR Yaris sits on. Along with this comes a suspension system that meets the high-stress demand of rally racing, with the MacPherson struts supporting the fronts axis while the rear areas rest on a torsion beam suspension.

As for the drivetrain, the Toyota GR Yaris comes with an all-new GR All-wheel drivetrain that makes sure the wheels get as much power as possible. And oh, it's only supported by this super sound 6-speed manual transmission which should really excite the stick riding enthusiasts like me.

On the engine side, its 1.6 Liter In-line 3 cylinder turbocharged engine is regarded as the most powerful 3 cylinder engine so far, delivering a class-topping 261 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. With this much power, the GR Yaris clears the 0-62 mph in just 5.2 seconds reaching a maximum speed of 142.9 mph. Already, the GR Yaris is making waves winning the Mexico Rally on the 14 of March 2020 by a distant 27.8 seconds. See pictures of the 2020 Toyota GR Yaris below, whose manufacturer suggested retail price starts at about ₦13.6 Million.
