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 Toyota Yaris GR Sport will be available in Europe during the second quarter of 2022. Details of UK model specifications will be announced nearer the on-sale date.


  1. My current yaris hybrid is a 1.5 as well so no difference in the speed my current model as very low mileage at 3,520 on a 67 plate.

    Could be interested but don’t think I’d get finance but with my current car and low mileage it probably take up good chunk (but is on finance)

    I also have front / rear dash cameras that would need transferring across plus my current car as the smart water technology marking done so would want on new model if I decide to go down the road and could get the finance on yaris sport.

    The final think will depend on colour rance that it comes in.

    1. Hi Andy,
      The Yaris GR Sport will give you the option of a new Dynamic Grey exterior paint finish that’s exclusive to the model.

    2. Big difference between the old 1.5 hybrid and the new version from 2020 onwards, they are like night and day. I didn’t buy the old version because it was so boring but the new Yaris is totally different and I am awaiting a new one. I say test drive one and see the difference, the new version has much more power lower down and mid range.

  2. Hopefully blind spot monitoring & rear cross traffic alert will be available.

    Will a heated steering wheel be available in the UK with the optional heated seats?

    Any chance of Toyota smart connect making it on to the spec / options list?
