The urban SUV is in turn available with the “pseudo-sporty” GR Sport version. The hybrid block remains at 116 hp.
Already offered with the Yaris, the Corolla and the C-HR, the GR Sport version will make its appearance in the Yaris Cross range. It’s a nicely sporty finish, there’s no question of an overpowered GR! There is not even a more muscular block than the one we already know for this model.
We therefore find the gasoline / electricity unit, with a three-cylinder 1.5 liter, which develops a maximum of 116 hp. However, Toyota engineers have revised the suspension settings to give the C-HR a slightly sportier handling.
On the side of the look, it is also quite light in the evolutions. The grille and the shield adopt a new grid, with a honeycomb pattern. We find this motif in the rear diffuser. The Yaris GR Sport is equipped with new 18-inch rims. The color chart includes a specific “Dynamic Grey” color.
Toyota Corolla: all prices with new hybrid engines
Inside, the sporty touch is provided by red stitching on the steering wheel, the gear lever or the seats, the latter being a little more enveloping. The Gazoo Racing logo appears on the headrests. We also find this logo on the steering wheel or the start button.
The price of the GR Sport is not yet known, but this version will be placed at the top of the Yaris Cross offer. It will thus be full of standard equipment, with for example heated front seats. The launch is scheduled for the third quarter of 2022.
