The Yaris comes directly from the WRC

Cologne, 12 January 2016

Who remembers you because the last built sharp Toyota Yaris, hand up! Yes, it's already 11 years ago that the Japanese have built the cool Yaris TS. But this losing streak would be ended now. Along with the hotel's own race team Gazoo racing confront Toyota: a real performance Yaris on the legs.

Celebrate rally entry

How do the sudden change of heart? Now, Toyota returns damn many wing 2017 with a monstrous spawn of the Yaris, hell lot of power in the World Rally Championship WRC back. Reason enough to celebrate the return to the premier class with a quick road Yaris. As you can see, the Yaris Gazoo comes clearly civilian as an aggressive rally brother. Nevertheless we can look forward over small, lightweight alloy wheels, a fancy spoiler and a central exhaust. The sporty little is also a glimpse of the facelift of the Yaris with new aprons, other headlights and a nicer Interior.

More than 210 HP

As regards performance, promises "more than 210 PS" Toyota. And even if it would "only" 211 PS at the end, the Yaris Gazoo in the competitive environment of Renault Clio R.S.., Ford Fiesta ST and mini John Cooper works still fully motorized. We hope that a lively turbo-engine a sport-tuned suspension and a crisp manual transmission join. After all, Toyota with the GT86 has already proven that the Japanese know how to build funny cars. There will be more information about the Yaris Gazoo probably at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. (mf)
