Yaris GR Sport joins growing Yaris hatchback family 

Yaris GR Sport

Toyota has revealed the new Yaris GR Sport, the latest addition to the multi-award-winning Yaris family. The Yaris GR Sport joins the Yaris hatchback, the 2021 European Car of the Year and the performance-focused, World Rally-inspired GR Yaris

The GR Sport is available with Toyota’s 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid electric powertrain. The front and rear suspension systems have been upgraded on the Yaris GR Sport, with the shock absorbers optimised to react quicker at lower speeds, improving steering response and ride comfort. The rear springs have been tuned to suppress body tilt or wheel lift under acceleration and braking.

 The car’s body rigidity has been strengthened with additional underfloor bracing on each side, improving handling and stability. Aerodynamic performance has also been addressed with additional liners in the front and rear wheel arches to reduce drag. 

The Yaris GR Sport is fitted with bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels, distinguished by red accent lines that reinforce the model’s Gazoo Racing association. The front grille has a new mesh design featuring a “G” motif pattern and at the rear, there is a new T-shaped rear diffuser. Customers have the option of a new Dynamic Grey exterior paint finish that’s exclusive to the model.

        The Yaris GR Sport does not come with Heads Up Display.


    1. Hi Paul, thanks for your question.

      Our Product Team have advised that heated seats are available on the Convenience Pack.

      Please may you clarify your second question.


  1. I am not getting my GR Sport until December, but i can’t see the Convenience pack, as i would have liked to have added heated seats and untrasuede seats. Please advise.

  2. Hi have bought a Yaris GR sport it comes in November 2023 does this car come with a spare wheel it has a
    Standard roof ? Thanks Gary

    1. Hi Gary, thanks for your question.

      Please provide a Vehicle Registration so that we can look into this.


      1. Hi Gary,

        The MY22 Yaris comes with a space saver spare wheel, unless the vehicle has a panoramic roof.


  3. Does the 2023 Yaris GR Sport come with a
    1) Space saver, jack etc?
    2) Sat Nav?
    3) Heated seats?
    4) Blind spot warning in the mirrors?

    1. Hi Conrad, thanks for your questions.

      This vehicle has a Space Saver Spare Wheel. It is not fitted with navigation as standard, however this feature is available with the City Pack. In regards to heated seats, these are not available on the Yaris GR Sport and Blind Spot Monitors are available as an option.


  4. Collected my GR Sport in March. Did not buy for performance but have been very pleased with car and excellent fuel economy. My only disappointment is that l have been trying to obtain a handbook from dealers, Hendy Bournemouth, but, so far, unsuccessful. I appreciate that l can look on the internet but l am not keen on the computer.

  5. Hi ,
    Why in Europe is yaris gr sport and premiere edition with 130hp. and in UK is still 116hp?? And what about heated seats, i cant see this option ?


    1. Hi Marc, thanks for your comment.

      Different countries will have different specifications for each vehicle. This includes variations of accessories. To view the current UK specification for the Toyota Yaris GR Sport, please consult the brochure here:


      Please let us know if you have any further questions.


  6. Is the 2023 Yaris Excel only available with the light grey seats?

    And is their an option for full black colour wheels on the Yaris GR Sport.

    I also note the UK online Yaris configurator does not mention the panoramic sunroof or Convenience Pack are these options available in the UK to order?

    Many thanks
